      ).
  2. Bonuses with weapon restrictions that include any one-handed melee weapon type benefit Varunastra. This is especially relevant for passive skills that grant multiple bonuses, each restricted by different weapon types. For example, the cluster jewel with Added Small Passive Skills grant: Sword Attacks deal 12% increased Damage with Hits and Ailments and Added Small Passive Skills grant: Axe Attacks deal 12% increased Damage with Hits and Ailments will cause each passive node to give 24% increased damage total. However, this does not apply to effects where multiple weapon types are stated in the same line, such as x% increased Physical Damage with Axes or Swords.
