How come my DPS so low?

Posts: 24
I've been told many times that my dps is surprisingly low considering the weapon I'm holding(I've been told I should be clearing 20k but I am currently at 16000). I have a 2h sword with 1018.9. The stat bonuses from the weapon are 241-578 damage and IAS 18%. My intelligence is at 965 so I was wondering if it was my intelligence being the reason my dps is so low?

I'm 55 and currently have 1050 int. COnsidering the weapon you have, I assume you're 60 or very close, so I'd say your int is certainly low.

Dmg bonus from gear also greatly increases dps.

yeah you need a lot more int if you want to see big numbers

Using a 918 DPS weapon I have 25k damage. Are you not using Force Weapon? It increases your damage quite a bit. And yes, your int seems fairly low.

You guys must be royally AH twinked to get that much Int, you got like 100+ on every item? Where do you have room for Vit? Unless you're dropping 300k on every item to get 3 digit stats on both.

I'm 56 and just barely pushing 5.5k DPS / 21k HP. My weapon's 1h DPS is 280. And it was balls to the wall expensive. And I'm not a moron. But I must suck at gold farming.

Sorry for being a noob here but what do you mean by force weapon?

I'm 45.

My Chest Armor alone provides 100+ int and vit. My Weapon and Shoes does the same as well. :) So yeah, it's all about using the right parameters when using AH.

You don't need vit as a wizard, in fact it's rather counter productive.

Magic weapon has a runed called force weapon the combination of both gives +15% weapon damage.

I'm at 1023 Int at level 51 and I spent maybe 10k a piece on each armor I have currently equipped. Most I actually picked up for about 5k a piece.
