    if you put 10 points into strength then your skill does 5 extra points of damage , 50% of 10 = 5
    if you put 10 points into magic then your skill does 5 extra points of damage , 50% of 10 = 5


    if you put x points into magic or strength hen your skill does x * 50% extra points of damage
    algebra, don't ya love it ! ?

    I'm still a little confused.
    When you say put do you mean the amount of strength points you have when you use the
    skill???? If my total strength is 30 then I would get 15 points of extra damage????

    ah, I had it wrong
    the math is a lot more complicated

    What do those infos mean on the skill description?
    Basically, that means that the corresponding stats provide a % boost to various properties of the skill.
    Basically, with 100% strength and dex bonuses, you get 1% bonus to damage per point in either. If you had 10 strength and 12 dex, you'd get a 22% bonus to damage on needle arc. Needle arc does no weapon damage at all, so all of its improvements come from skill investment and stat investment ( or magical effects on gear )

    so if 100% gives 1% bonus to damage per point
    then
    I'm guessing with a 50% bonus for that skill, you get 1/2 of 1% bonus to damage per point
    so if you had 10 strength and 12 magic, that's 22 points
    50% of 22 = 11
    so you get an 11 % increase in the damage that skill does

    I noticed every skill with stats boost have a damage value (so apart from %DPS), I suppose this is the partof the skill the given stat is increasing ; unless this is final damage which is..?? Need testing =p
