    Default Weapon damage

    How does it work?
    From what a guy on public chat said; slower attack speeds are always better because the auto attack damage is higher causing your moves to do more damage. I find that hard to believe so i ask anyone here to confirm or deny that statement.

    the only stat that matters is DPS and the ability score you get from it (ie strength)

    Swing speed means nothing.

    in many games this would be true. in beta rift normalized the damage formula, as sez said, to be based off DPS as opposed to speed.

    faster weapons, however, do proc more enhancements/procs
