How do the damage bonuses from all-out-attack Weapon Master, Throwing Art or weapon quality affect the weapons maximum damage?
All-out-attacks and weapon quality do not increase a weapon’s maximum damage. Maximum damage represents the largest wound the weapon can inflict; a sharper blade (read “fine weapon”) or all-out-attack merely allows you to do this using less ST. Apply maximum damage limits after adding up all modifiers except for Weapon Master or Throwing Art. If damage exceeds the maximum, then lower it to the maximum. Once you’ve done that, apply the modifier for Weapon Master or Throwing Art. This will allow a Weapon Master or Throwing Artist to exceed maximum damage. Source: Dr. Kromm (kromm@io.
