    Default faster weapons in off hand?

    I have always wondered this, I am sure its nothing like how it is in wow, because of off hand attacks, however does it matter here. I am trying to think, it would make more sense to have your harder hitting and SLOWER weapon in main hand, does this hold water?

    Unless things have changed, I believe wep speed is not an issue. All wep attacks are based on the dps on said wep.

    If you depend on procs for damage (sin, nb) then using 1.8 daggers, even if lower dps weapons, actually achieves more overall dps output than using slower weapons like maces and axes

    Highest DPS in both hands, MH has priority.

    Faster > Slower given equal DPS.

    i think all attacks are based on your main hand weapon dmg so just put you better weapon in slot 1 speed would be nice if it affected gbc but it dosnt and you really not sitting there auto attacking so speed is a non issue as far as i know

    Rocks says paper is OP. Scissors says Nerf rock.
