Firstly, my weapon damage is: 374-768
Energy twister does 360% of weapon damage.
So I'm guessing it does 350% of (374-768 + whatever bonus my source gives me + a little bonus from ring).
My displayed dps is 23.7k. Is this the dps that I would have, if I just stood there and did my basic atack - i.e. unequipped all my abilities?
In that case, is this number almost useless if I want to know my actual dps - i.e. how much damage I can put out, tornado-ing a bunch of mobs?
In that case, what good is the displayed dps? Inserting the +crit damage ring increased my displayed dps by about 14%. Can I use that as a rough guideline on how useful the rune is (i.e. 14% more damage output), or is that more or less useless because how much damage energy twister does varies too much depending on how many mobs are caught in it, and the 'real' effect of crit + crit damage varies too much depending on whether i'm using a single target hit once signature spell, or a dot aoe like energy twister?
DPS seems to be a most important stat, in terms of what people talk about when they are talking about their gear and damage output. I'm just trying to understand how accurate it actually is.
If it's relevant - I'm running a critical mass build with wicked wind.
