So I've got my magic find shield (85 dex) that gives me more dps than a 215 dex offhand. Is the damage just an average of both weapons? Because I tried a 600dps offhand and my damage would still go down. My main hand is 980 dps, does that mean I have to find a better weapon or about the same to not lose dps while dual wielding? :/
When dualwielding all damage is calculated by averaging the damage of the two weapons and adding a bonus 15% attack speed. If one weapon is dramatically lower in damage than the other then the 15% attack speed bonus would not make up for the damage lost.
Also, attacks do not alternate between your weapons. The final damage calculation (shown on your character sheet) is all that's used in damaging attack calculations.
