Phoenix + Grief on a D-Tail Kicker?

Hey all - just a quick question. Does the +damage on Grief add before multipliers when using D-Tail, just like it does for smite? Also, will Phoenix's ED work with D-Tail - and for that matter, will Fortitude's?

Thanks all - stay cool!

Phoenix and Fortitude's ED will affect base kick damage which does help tail quite a bit. Phoenix is actually a damn nice shield for a tail kicker provided you can afford it. Pair it with a Lacerator or Lawbringer and you really don't even need a tiger charge-up.

Hmmm . . . interesting! What about putting on a Last Wish Zerker for the level 17 Might aura and 69% Crushing Blow?

Hadn't really considered how a Last Wish might up damage. I'll have to check into that. Stay away from a zerker, tho...needs way to much IAS to hit a 7 frame tail (89 IAS even with lvl 20 BOS=eeks). Phaseblade would be better, only 26 IAS needed with 20 BOS.
