    Default wepon speeds

    Hey all,

    I have a lvl 44 assassin/rift/blade and i frikin love it. i mainly focus on bleeds and poisons, but i want to know what speed of weapons i want. i know in WoW you wanted a slow main hand and a fast off hand, is it the same in this game?

    thnx

    this is asked like 5 times a day... there is even another threat on the MAIN PAGE on the exact same thing... weapons are normlized... DPS matters not speed

    For moves it is normalized. For autoattack im not sure. So in theory faster weapons would proc more on auto attack. But it will be by such a small amount, if its even true - that it wont matter

    The answer is

    -no one has has tested it even sort of well(or at least they havent posted their results)
    -Trion has been vague

    Can't really go wrong with a faster weapon in off hand, especially if the focus is to proc poisons and fire dots.

    there is no reason for a rogue to take a slow weapon. so why not go for the safe answer and take fast weapons for that slight chace you do more dmg that way due to procs.

    it has been tested extensivly since beta 4 then they normalized them... your DPS matter not the spped... and the poison for weapons have an internal cooldown so its all mute...
