dual wield is still underpowered. i can only see using 2 1hand bows for there legendary effect, for example calamity and strafe bow.
although the quiver legendary effects are not that impressive, quiver have 2 more primary stats. weapons to be useful need weapon affix and sockel affix. so they've 2 affixe left to be good. quiver can have dex, vita, crit, attack speed and another stat. discipline is a secondary stat and both can roll it without affecting the "dps" performance.
Have to say I disagree with this.
We have yet to see all of the 1 hand bows. I haven't seen a dawn nor a balefire caster, amongst several others. Blizzard even mentioned all of the legs are not out for testing at the moment, which is why there are certain legs in general we haven't seen dropped.
Having a second xbow with possibly godly affix is a huge buff to dual wielding, and also have nifty affixes that quivers can't roll. Quivers are no longer rolling as high of attack speed, making dual wielding sometimes a "faster" option, as well as crit chance isn't rolling as high, while socketed xbows will GAIN dps with better tiered gems socketed (at the loss of innate CD, which will be made up with high tiered emeralds, hell screw going all emerald route, drop a diamond in the mix and !!!!#*@! Elites instead)
Dual wield actually received quite a bit of help, so I'm definitely confused about dual wielding being underpowered statements.
