I've been hacking through several formulas across this site and others. I'm running into problems trying to figure out the true DPS when the character is dual wielding. Let's take a low level Barbarian for example.
Strength: 28 Damage Increased by Skills: 0% Attacks per second: 1.24 Crit Chance: 5% Crit Hit Damage: 50% Weapon Stats: 1 Hand Spear: 7-11 Damage Spear Base Attacks per Second: 1.20 Bonus: Increase Attack Speed by 3%
So, the formula for this would be (or any one handed character):
7 + 11 = **18**; (weapon damage range added together) 1.20 * (1 + (3 * 0.01)) = **1.236**; (base weapon speed, times any IAS bonus on the weapon plus 1) (0 * 0.01) + 1 = **1**; (damage bonus from skills. this character has 0) ((5 * 0.01) * (50 * 0.01)) + 1 = **1.025**; (crit chance * crit damage) (28 * 0.01) + 1 = **1.28**; (attribute to percent + 1)
multiple all of the results above, and divide by two and you get: 14.59
which is the correct DPS of the character. But now, how would you calculate the DPS of an offhand weapon equipped to this character, say:
1H Axe Base Speed: 1.30 Damage Range: 9-14
Does anyone know how to calculate this?
