Queston About Weapon Affixes

  • #1
    I'm wondering which affixes, if any, are already built into the weapon's visible DPS. My math has just been confusing me.

    Are Affixes like (+214-404 Fire Damage), +25% damage already built into that 900DPS bow or is it added on after the fact?

    I'm basically trying to decide if the +dmg % affix is a nice bonus to an already great weapon.


    Thanks a ton guys

    hi, it is already added to the dps, although + atk speed% applies to the other weapon too if you are dual wielding.

    The listed weapon damage takes into account all damage increasing affixes (elemental or none, percentage or flat). The listed weapon speed takes into account any IAS affix on the weapon. The listed DPS of the weapon is simply the average of the listed damage, times the listed speed.

    What it won't account for is crit modifiers, dexterity, or any attack speed and damage bonus on your other equipment. If the listed DPS numbers on the item are close, I recommend doing the math as the higher listed DPS will not always do more damage.

    Wrong, AS doesn't apply to the second weapon. Please test stuff before you post it, thanks.
