Was it really necessary to quote all that to ask that question?
Well... that's actually not 100% true. I'm not as good at maths than a lot of the people here so this is me just checking different options at Vulajin's Spreadsheet.
I posted about combat fast Mainhands at least a month ago in this same thread but it didn't catch a lot of attention.
Let's think we have a 2.6 MH a 1.4 MH and a 1.4 OH for each weapon specialization all MH are 171.3 DPS AND Best in Slot Gear.
The weapons wound be:
2.6 Calamity's Grasp (MH)
1.4 Calamity's Grasp (MH)
1.4 Webbed Death (OH)
2.6 Silent Crusader (MH)
1.4 Silent Crusader (MH)
1.4 Hailstorm (OH)
2.6 Angry Dead (MH)
1.4 Angry Dead (MH)
1.4 Split Greathammer (OH)
Forgive me if i'm wrong but inputting in Vulajin's Spreadsheet the following you get:
S&D, Rupture, Sinister Strike Glyphs
Fight duration set to 0
No TotT on cooldown
Calamity's Graps 2.6/Webbed Death 1.4 5296.92 DPS
Calamity's Grasp 1.4/Webbed Death 1.4 5302.57 DPS +0.11%
Silent Crusader 2.6/Hailstorm 1.4 5343.88 DPS
Silent Crusader 1.4/Hailstorm 1.4 5050.10 DPS -0.96%
Angry Dead 2.6/Split Greathammer 1.4 5315.59 DPS
Angry Dead 1.4/Split Greathammer 1.4 5319.02 DPS +0.06%
Calamity's Grasp 2.6/Hailstorm 1.4 5417.73 DPS
Calamity's Grasp 1.4/Hailstorm 1.4 5370.33 DPS -0.94%
Angry Dead 2.6/Hailstorm 1.4 5405.65 DPS
Angry Dead 1.4/Hailstorm 1.4 5356.34 DPS -0.98%
What we see is that the fasters weapons pull very little ahead when there's not a OH sword. And having an OH sword makes a Slow MH the best choice due to the OH proc MH Swing mechanic.
Also, it's interesting to see that Sword/Sword is the best "pure" weapon spec, with maces only a little behind. The buffs in 3.1 will probably put it ahead Swords. We might be forced to have only one weapon spec in 3.1 so could be interesting info.
If i made any mistake please point it, i would like to know if i'm just making stupid checks.
I'm wondering whether the new <two fast weapons ,18/51/3,MH WP / OH IP , xS(Shiv)/yR/zE >model will be more DPS
