Notes Edit

The chance to gain a charge when attacking is dependent on weapon speed, using the PPM mechanic. In effect, this means that slower weapons will have a slightly higher chance to trigger Maelstrom Weapon due to instant attacks. [Dual wielding] will greatly increase the rate at which charges are generated, although it won't be double, due to the miss penalty inherent in dual wielding. When Dual wielding, the PPM rate is approximately 25 PPM.[1]
