04/22/2014 06:12 AMPosted by MyonActually I don't quite understand where the 'Two 1h's are more DPS' comes from. Please no anecdotes about Crit and CHD and so on, here I took a look at ingame numbers from my own setup for reference,
1h + quiver (as in my profile): 1,260,051
1h + 1h (I have a second 1h just as good):1,242,534
1h + quiver in this case not only puts out more 'sheet dps', it also has an extra 700 vit as well as the Cluster Arrow skill affix. At minimum, dual wielding needs to put out more damage than any quiver setup just to compensate and break even for the loss of these stats.
There are some marginal benefits to dual wielding however, single shot crit damage is higher which will mean you get slightly more utility out of the Ambush passive for instance. Too much to cover in one post so I'll just leave it at that.
Now, with Sharpshooter,
1h + quiver: 2,134,968
1h + 1h: 2,559,490
These are closer to the numbers I am expecting to see, the free crit from Sharpshooter greatly complements a dual wielding setup as you have an excess of CHD from having an extra emerald, and those two stats scale off each other very well. So here, DPS wise, you have 2,134,968 sheet DPS and 15% Cluster Arrow, versus 2,559,490 DPS by itself, much closer of a comparison.
I stress that this is at max Sharpshooter stacks though, to look at it another way I need to be all the way at 100% crit just for dual wield to break even due to more advantageous scaling with its excess CHD. You might say (from the numbers in my case only) that the power level of dual wield is inferior to single wielding at an unbuffed state, but catches up the more you allow Sharpshooter to stack.
Actually I have an almost perfect Kridershot + a solid Archfiend Arrow
I can't see how I will ever use Kridershot + Quiver.
I'm running right now Nat Slayer + Calamity + SoJ + 3er Nat Set
