All "Black" Damage Weapon

How much will one help me out vs the MCK I have on now?

I can't get any definitive info on it and what type of weapon I need to target, axe, spear, another knife.

thanks

your best bet is to use a calculator...... to be able to get the most out of zuni's and tal's (im assuming thats why your wanting to go black).... your best option is a low base as weapon like a spear because if you have a sword and a spear same dps the spear gets more of its dps from actual dmg where as the sword from as (just look at the low high ranges directly beneath a weapons dps) because its these numbers that receive added %dmg (as well as any dmg on mojo or jewelery).... hope this helps!!!

I'm afraid I didn't understand your post, Danevil. Is there anyway you or someone else could elaborate?

when calculating the %ele increase it only increases direct weapon dmg (before att speed) so take my spear for ex its dmg as listed between weapon dps and weapon att sp is 673-1175 this is then avg giving 924 so my weapons avg dps from dmg alone is 924 this number is then multiplied by my weapons att sp of 1.2 giving my 1108.7 dps weapon.... with a sword the same dps because the att sp multiplier is higher the dmg numbers are lower..... the % ele dmgs from your items only increases your black dmg and not dmg done from att speed so seeing as the spear has slightly higher numbers it benefits more!!!! .... but the ele dmg also increases dmg output from your mojo or jewelery ie +min or +max or +min/max......hope this clears things up a bit!!!

Is a LS Skorn viable? It's all Black damage and a slow cast speed. My sheet dps will drop considerably if I went with one but I'm not sure if the extra 20% elemental from my gear will make up for it.

Please keep in mind that I'm Bears build WD. I have a feeling that there's a lot of "hidden" dps that I'm not taking advantage of by not having a "Black" damage weapon.

cant help really with the bear side.... im the anti-bear!!! lol but your best bet is to go to d3rawr load up your profile and check it out.... if you can give me the complete details of the weapon you want id be glad to check it out for you if you cant figure out how to use it! but my guess is a skorn might not be the best choice because of the high dmg your mojo has it to benefits from the %ele dmg so you will lose that as well

Dan, if I were to swap out to your weapon on d3rawr, it's showing me with an increase of +22756.81 dps...is that correct?

i get more like 800 because you would be loosing 200 int 40chd if you get a spear like mine with same chd and int as your ...yes it would!!

over on the right hand side is where you can change those stats!!!
