I'm sorry if this has already been covered in a thread somewhere, but I wanted to ask, does dual wielding one handers as a monk increase spirit generation, as opposed to a 2 hander with the same attack speed as the average of the one handers? And if anyone could outline the general pros/cons of dual wield vs 2 handers vs one hander/shield, that would be greatly appreciated
The calculations are based "purely [on] your weapon and related passive." 2x1H illuminating fists can easily give you 2.00 spirit/sec, taking them above unilluminating daggers.
I'd add to the list of pros for the dual-wield that by increasing the number of hits, you benefit from everything that procs on a hit or crit. For the purpose of this question, for instance, you'd want to take into account Crippling Wave -> Rising Tide.
I'm led to conjecture that a passive increasing all forms of generation, including regeneration, is what they originally had in mind for the daibo. I am for example sitting at 5.38 spirit/sec, which would be increased by 1.45 spirit/sec, closing the gap significantly and making 2H more attractive.
