What it means is that you will be a Rogue 12 / Assassin 8 and then take your shadowdancer level at the 21st level.
Therferon: You are suggesting me to take Shadowdancer on pre-epic. So do you mean like this Rogue 12 / Assassin 8 / Shadowdancer 1?
This is due to the way your base attack bonus progression is rounded. If you take your level of Shadowdancer at level 20 or before you will get your attack bonus rounded down, whereas if you take it after level 20 it will not affect you.
And by the way hand axe seems appealing with x3 damage and doesnt need exotic slot. What do you guys think about it? I checked gamebanshee to see late game handaxes they seem to suck mostly but i cant rely on that site because its already missing few weapons(i.e hatred / strife on kukri section).
The handaxe's x3 critical threat is about equivalent to the Short Sword's 19-20/x2 threat. Take your preference; I prefer bigger range to bigger multipliers personally.
