I recently upgraded from a Dagger to a Javelin on my monk - and suddenly, it feels like it takes a lot longer to use my abilities.
I checked, and found that the Dagger has 1.5 attacks per second compared to the Javelin's 1.2 -- does this actually effect the animation time of the abilities? Abilities already base damage off of weapon DPS (instead of Max/Min damage), presumably to normalize the difference between fast and slow weapons.
But if faster weapons yield faster animations, they're clearly superior, even with slightly inferior DPS.
Does weapon speed actually effect this? (In my case, neither weapon is enchanted)
