I hear people talk about how an DW IAS Build will do more dps than a comparable DPS 2H (Skorn build) and how it is just paper DPS.....
But will it really?
The problem I see with that statement is that is that while the DW IAS might have lots of fast attacks, proccing tons of tornadoes in the process, the Cyclones will hit like wet noodles because the damage is based of of your weapon damage (Which is purely Calculated by Your Weapon damage and your primary Skill). So if say if youre running an 1100 DPS wep and only 2k dex but have lots of secondary stats (IAS, Crit chance, Crit damage) That might give you more PAPER dps, but your fast spawning cyclones will not hit that hard.
2H Builds however, will spawn a lot fewer cyclones, but the ones you do spawn will hit like a truck, and might hit for enough damage to make up for the damage of 4 or 5 cyclones from the DW Guy
So, the question is, Am I right? Or am I crazy?
Ill give you my profile here
And some guy withcomparable paper dps with A decent amount of attack speed and Attacks per second gear (EF combo)
Whose sweeping wind DPS is going to win out, and whats the math behind it. Im really curious to know, thanks!
