Do weapons have an effect on the attack abilities or is it only if you fall back to the stock attack button?
Since all abilities are based off weapon damage, it influences that. For example, if you have a regular dagger it may be 5-7 dmg. One with the arcane modifier listed of (example) 1-3 would change that exact same dagger to 6-10 dmg. So an ability that does 200% weapon damage would do 10-14 with the first weapon, and 12-20 with the second.

Or so I was led to believe in my forum digging, as always see my disclaimer below before blasting me cause I'm wrong ;)
