How is listed DPS calculated when dual-wielding weapons?
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 and weapon 2.
Weapon 1 (1hand axe): 435.5 dps 221-449dmg 1.3 aps +123-267 lightning damage +84 strength +62 intellect
Weapon 2 (1h spear): 247.8 dps 152-260 dmg 1.2 aps +37-89 fire damage +10% dmg +83 strength +211 intellect +37% increased critical damage +2.4% of damage dealt is converted to life
