How is listed DPS calculated when dual-wielding weapons?
Below is a screenshot of what I'm referring to. How does a Quiver with those stats increase my total damage when it replaces a one handed crossbow (in my offhand) that has 292.6 damage?
I know the damage calculation in D3 is somewhat complicated, but this doesn't make sense to me at all.
Possible Duplicate: How is listed DPS calculated when dual-wielding weapons? If I equip a dagger in my mainhand (1.31 APS) and then an axe in my offhand (1.30 APS) my attacks per second go up to 1.51. Makes sense based on this guide. However, when I unequip both weapons, then equip the axe in my offhand first, then the dagger in my mainhand, my attacks per second drops to 1.28. These are the same weapons equipped in the same slots, just in a different order. The same thing happens if I switch it up and do Axe mainhand, Dagger offhand. Why the difference? EDIT: I have
Possible Duplicate: When dual wielding weapons, how is damage calculated for skills that do X% weapon damage? I tried out demon hunter after getting a nice 1-hand weapon for the class, when I got the Demon hunter to the level needed to equip it I moved my starting weapon to my offhand hoping this would give me higher damage, but the result was not very impressive when using Hungering... a better understanding of why my damage was so terrible when dual wielding a good and a bad weapon I would like to know: How is my damage done by skill calculated when dual wielding 1-hand crossbows
Possible Duplicate: How is listed DPS calculated when dual-wielding weapons? I've read somewhere in-game ( i don't remember where exactly though) that when dual-wielding, attack speed differs when you're using incompatible items or something? So does it matter if I equip a one-handed spear and a fist vs 2 spears and 2 fists? Also, do they need to have the same attack speed?
Possible Duplicate: How does +% damage on weapons work? Now that I'm nearing level 60, I'm seeing many weapons that have +% damage on them. Is this number already factored into the listed DPS of the weapon? Does this number affect anything beyond the base damage of the weapon it is on? If so, how? Does it affect my off-hand weapon if I'm dual wielding? Is it applied before my primary stat's multipliers? Basically, I'm curious if I can safely ignore this property on an item when doing comparison shopping in the AH because it's already factored into the listed damage range
Possible Duplicate: How is listed DPS calculated when dual-wielding weapons? I've seen other similar posts on this, but still have some questions. In this formula: ((1 + passive skill...% * crit damage %))( 1 + (main stat / 100))(average attack speed of both weapons / weapon 2 attack speed)) * 0.575 What are the "Weapon Damage Multipliers"? Does the "Attack Speed" include the 15% bonus for dual wield? Does the "average attack speed of both weapons" include the 15% bonus for dual wield? Does "weapon 1 attack speed" include the 15% bonus for dual wield?
Possible Duplicate: What does the Damage stat on the character sheet actually mean? How is it Calculated? Often it is not possible to compare two weapons like in the inventory. Take the AH or some random WTS offer when using another char. How can I predict / calculate how much DPS my char will deal afterwards, given I have access to all numbers required?
Possible Duplicate: Is Primary Stat Worth More Than Weapon Damage? What does the Damage stat on the character sheet actually mean? How is it Calculated? Let's say I have a ring that has +2-4 damage and another that has +15 dexterity. I am a demon hunter. I find that equiping the +damage ring gives a much greater boost to my DPS (as shown on my character screen) than the dexterity ring, which is supposed to increase my damage by 15. Does anyone know how this works? Does this have anything to do with how +damage is calculated?
Possible Duplicate: Monks and the effectiveness of 2-handed weapons I am leveling as a monk on Diablo 3, so far, i've managed to use Daibos as weapons (i've found a rare one). My question is : should i use 2x fists instead of a Daibo ? What are the advantages of one over another. Also, Lets say my Daibo does 40.0 damage, will i do more damage with 2x Fists doing 40.0 damage each ? Are the skill damage based on Weapons SUM or just the weapon in the main hand ? There are some skills for example, that does 110% weapon damage, but what happens if i am dual wielding ? How does
Possible Duplicate: How is listed DPS calculated when dual-wielding weapons? When equipping weapon 1 below, i gain a great amount of damage. When equipping another weapon in the off hand (or the main hand) my damage DROPS. How is the damage from your equipped weapons calculated? I have searched through this exchange for a few minutes now and have read over all of the formulas and calculations but did not see anything answering this particular case. Why is my damage dropping when equipping another 1 handed weapon? Damage 12780.17 with only weapon 1. Damage 12401.22 with weapon 1
