I am a little confused by this preview of the damage that could be done in Diablo 3
Dire Span is reporting to give me +1076 to damage.
When equipped however it in fact reduces my overall dam by nearly 1.5k.
So how is this calculated? Is it only a problem because of the % that is added on these weapons to the damage when strength is taken into account?
Whilst this question may appear similar to this: How is the weapon damage on this weapon calculated?
However this question does not give information on strength factor.
