2 one handed bows or 1 with a quiver

does equiping 2 one handed crossbows work better than 1 with a quiver. Does it make your attack speed better

You only get the dmg from your Main Hand, so your OH Xbow better have amazing stats, otherwise just use a quiver.

Basically, when you dual wield, you alternate which weapon you attack with while getting a passive 15% attack speed buff. In most cases, its cheaper (and better) to use a weapon (usually a 2h) and a quiver. 15% IAS is not a lot when most quivers only have 1-2% less than that, and if the difference between the two weapons is too great, you end up losing dps instead of gaining it.

You recommended a 2h xbow but when I use one it seems to make my attack speed lower despite the quiver - is this inherent in the 2h xbow make up
