Let's say I have a claw that has 50 physical damage. It has a modifier of +10 physical damage. Does that make the final physical damage rating 60 or does the rating of 50 already include the +10?

Same question for armor.

For weapons, adding a +physical damage socket causes a change in the DPS (which is displayed on the weapon), but will not update the damage dealt per hit.

Wonder if it will be patched in to update the DPS stats, anyone think it would ever be? – Hugabooga Oct 18 '12 at 23:12
@Hugabooga Probably not. Maybe you can scrape around for a mod that improves the DPS stat calculations? I'm not sure if that kind of thing is moddable but it's worth checking. – Sadly Not Jan 17 '13 at 4:12
