Which skills scale with dps and which scale with dmg?

General Discussion
Basically like the title says. Does anyone know of a chart, or can make a list from memory, of which skills scale with dps and which only scale with weapon damage.

For example, if I cast blizzard, will it do 210% of my weapon damage, or 210% of my dps?

Thanks in advance!

P.S. Does anyone have a list of proc coefficients for various skills?
OK, so if it isn't channeled or rapid fire skills then it scales strictly with weapon damage? That seems like a simple rule to remember. But what about things like Summons or hydra or the turret. Are they dps or damage?
So then why would you, if you're a caster or summoner, go with dual wield rather than a 2-hander? (I could see and understand the merits of a shield) The 1-handers do significantly less damage, and even if you use a channeled spell the two hander is better for the cost.

damage. attack speed just makes you summon em faster.


no, test it for yourself. Attack speed buffs hydra damage.
