Was backstab weakened recently? It doesnt seem to do the
damage it used to do.
Has anyone noticed this?

Backstab itself wasn't changed, but remember, it's also affected by
the changes to damroll that went in a bit ago.

Are you serious? I thought the changes to damageroll where
put in to fix str con and str mage people from doing as much
damage as str dex peoples... Are you saying that what actually
happened is that backstab got weakened? hehe whats the point
then? Especially when there is soooo much old eq in the game
hm, oh well. I guess I could get used to a weaker backstab. As
far as I know, snipers werent the ones that were supposed to get
the downgrade. Makes them all the tougher to play I guess.

yeah, yeah, my backstabs arn't too potent anymore.. I
do seem to be gettin' more paras of late, though, with no
change to my stats. That icky sniper luck, or some kinda
code thingy or whatever it is that makes the para go down?

bleh.. I didn't realize just how much backstab had gone down..
40 average?!?? that's sick. why is it again that snipers need
less instead of more? Oh wait, maybe it's because perception is
just so crazy overpowered, eh?

You're right, snipers weren't the target of the recent change.
We're discussing ways to fix it, please be patient.
Obviously more damage is a possibility but there could
be other changes as well..

What has damroll got to do with it? My backstabs used to do a
lot more than others are reporting with 0 damroll.

get chalice holster
fill chalice teapot
put chalice holster
I heard that too... that damage roll has a HUGE affect
on backstab damage now.
Maybe thats a place to start checking?
