How does martial arts damage work? Since it doesn't scale with strength does it just go by how high your martial arts is? And if so what is the damage cap on it? I know it's not about high damage, just getting a lot of small hits in, but I was just curious.
Martial Arts damage most definitely scales with Strength. (Only Modern Weapons do not benefit from Strength +% damage in any way.) Martial Arts should add .1 Attack Rating and 0.085 damage per skill level.
Extremely high Martial Arts coupled with maximum Strength will provide a character with tremendous melee damage. I would confidently assert that MA Monks are the third most damaging class in the game; however, they take much, much longer to reach that level of power compared to a Rogue or a Fighter.
