Hota usually is better for slow heavy 2-H, since the base weapon damage is definitely higher than fast weapon when both are compared with same Damage per second(dps).
2-H skorn, 1 attack/second, 1.4k weapon dps, deals 1.4k per second per attack.
1-H dagger, 1.5 attack/second, 1.4k weapon dps, deals 933.33333~~ per second.
(dagger dont roll tell 1.4k)
Hota has critical chance bonus and high damage, around 300% weapon damage.
So higher base damage, with high critical damage, will give u tremendous amount of damage compared to similar weapon damage in both hand and total critical damage.
DW can have 110% more critical damage than 2-H, but since you need to have
equally high base damage on both weapons,
and 2-H base is usually higher,
slow Hota animation,
more Fury consumption,
2-H usually is the preferred weapon.
Skorn(Axe) or mace is better to have addition 10% critical chance from weapon mastery(passive).
Skorn is very common, Mace on the other hand, slower(higher damage) but are very rare.
Use mighty weapon, if you don't want to use Weapon mastery. Since mighty weapon is class exclusive, it will be cheaper.
