Nice napkin math. What you calculated is your character sheet dps.Quote from teoteodore
I'm gonna do a bit of napkin-math, see if I'm right. I go from 825 to 575 DPS, a loss of 250 DPS. But since it's averaged with the main hand, it's really of loss of 125 DPS for both weapons. The current multiplier of average weapon DPS to total DPS for me is 55+/-, so the total DPS loss is 125x55 or 6,875. That brings my total down from 47,185 to 40,310 DPS. Now, let's say I go from 258 Crit Damage to 348. That's a 35% increase in damage, and at a 50% crit chance (with buffs), it's a 17.5% overall DPS increase. Increasing, 40,310 by 17.5% is 47,162. What am I doing wrong?
It's important to note that if you're using a WW build, the dmg of your RLTW tornadoes is based ONLY on your MH dmg. This means your OH is relegated to being a "stat stick" and its DPS is irrelevant. Your other attacks (WW, bash) will still calculate hits by alternating MH-OH, so your OH dps isnt completely useless, but it becomes MUCH less important.
My barb isn't godly-geared, but it's a good example of this WW gearing:
If anyone has advice on what I should be upgrading please fire away. I dont see any pieces in my gearset that are going to be cheap to upgrade. I would like more HP and defense but I don't want to sacrifice much dps to get it.
