Ambidexterity is an Combat Rogue passive bonus obtained by selecting the Combat Specialization. It increases the off-hand weapon damage and thrown weapon damage of the rogue.

Off-hand weapons do 50% damage before modifications. Ambidexterity increases this by 75%. Thus Combat Rogues do 87.5% damage with off-hand weapons. This represents a 25% increase in white damage.
