Low-Level Theorycraft. Help!

Recommended Posts

Hey there,

I know i should be busy leveling instead of asking me (or you) these questions..but i can't get no sleep :D


so what i want to know is this:

how does Attackpower count towards my dps?

i got Vanquisher's Sword which got  26,6 dps and +16 AP, does that mean if i count in AP i got like 28dps or whatever.
How is the math on that?
 

Second one: How do I do the math on the sword spec?  For example lets say, my MH is a good Sword, for OH i got a sword with lets say 26dps and no stats, 

but i could also use a dagger with 30dps..with 5/5 sword specialization skilled. Where is the point i'll switch to an other OH then Sword?

 

love you all and thank you in advance :*

This is how Attack Power affects your dps:

Quote

Attack power (AP) increases your base DPS by 1 for every 14 attack power.

As for the offhand question... as long as the dagger (or non-sword) is at least 2.5%-3.75% better (because offhand weapon is 50% or 75% normal damage).  It really comes down to poison dps based on the speed of the weapon, since instant poison is 20% chance proc.

 

Assuming you're using the lvl 36 poisons:

Poison DPS = 55 / Weapon Speed * 20%

Weapon speed         Poison DPS

2.8                            3.928571429
2.6                            4.230769231
2.5                            4.4
2.4                            4.583333333
2.3                            4.782608696
2.2                            5
2.1                            5.238095238
2                               5.5
1.9                            5.789473684
1.8                            6.111111111
1.7                            6.470588235
1.6                            6.875
1.5                            7.333333333
1.4                            7.857142857
1.3                            8.461538462

 

Please correct me if I'm all wrong, I'm not a math major.
