DH damage lowers when I attack a mob?

Anyone know why my damage in the character panel goes down and slowly rises back up only to drop down again when I attack a mob? When I am not doing anything my dps sits at around 4500 and drops to 3300 when I hit something.

Oh, so what does sharpshooter really do? I thought it was just 3% bonus crit, but crit affects damage?

every offensive stat will effect your dps, when you haven't attacked at all your crit goes to 100% hence majorly fluffing your dps on your character sheet.

It also heavily skews your paper doll damage when comparing items. It devalues +crit chance while absurdly overvaluing +crit damage.

when your crit gets to 100% you've effectively doubled your base damage, factor in the +crit damage and you've got me, who is about base 3.7k, up to 11k when sharpshooter is left alone to bring me to 100% crit chance. multi shot crits for 19-21k first shot

It increases your chance to crit by 3% every second until you get a crit. So if you're sitting it town, it'll be at 100% to crit.

Another reason could Steady Aim which only works if nothing is close (10 yards) to you.
