Hey guys so i have been reading a lot about Won khim Lau and how its the BIS off hand if rolled right. I know that my off hand is holding my DPS back since its under 8xx.
I attempted to use the DPS calulator from theasiangamer.com but every WKL I try to evaluate seems to make me loose 5-10k DPS. I know you need as close to a perfect 25% to make it worth while.
Am i missing something on this? Or is there something else i can do to suppliment the loss in DPS.
Unless I'm missing something major here that damage calculator doesn't include damage from +%elemental damage mods or +%elemental skill mods so that's why your paperdoll DPS looks lower. You have to manually calculate those mods onto your character. If you use FoT/Thunderclap + SW/Cyclone then you can assume all your damage will be modified by the +%lightning skill modifer (so multiply that to whatever the calculator spits out) but the +%elemental damage mod only works off non-elemental damage (so the base damage, jewellery bonuses and off-hand bonuses), which, unless you shop around doesn't include most of the damage of your weapon (unless you find a +min/max damage weapon, Echoing Fury being one example, thus the ever popular Echoing Fury + WKL combo).
That calculator doesn't take into account my WKL bonuses:
48k DPS unbuffed, just like it says on the paperdoll in game - I artificially buff my DPS before leaving the game to piss off my friend : D
25% isn't necessary, but it's friggin' awesome. The difference between 15% and 25% is about, well, (effectively) 10% of your combined DPS of your two weapons(assuming you're running FoT/Thunderclap+SW/Cyclone, but WKL is cost efficient if only used if you run both skills)
For me that would mean I need a 990 dps WKL (with the same dex mod) with 15% lightning damage to match my 820 dps WKL with 24%, which is going to cost me way more money.
