Check these out and see what I'm talking about.
So, it does LESS damage at a MUCH slower rate. Why would I ever want to do that when I can do more damage per swing, and at a much faster pace to boot? 2-hander damage needs to be increased to be competitive with dual wielding. This is my proof. You cannot deny that it's funky.

PS: I did post this on the General forums already. Figured I'd put it here in a seemingly more appropriate place. Link to original thread:
