    Default MM, does melee weapon DPS matter?

    Simple question:

    As a marksman, should I care about a sword/dagger/mace's dps, or should I only pay attention to the stats?

    I looked around for this but I didn't find anything.

    Melee weapon DPS doesn't affect MM DPS, but whetstones do.

    OK, cool, that's what I thought. I always use whetstones but I've passed up MH/OH's with more dps that didn't have superior stats. Thanks.

    Does Extra DPS from planar points on One handers effect MM DPS like a whetstone or as normal DPS on weapon?

    It's not really a melee enhancement. Think of it for every 1.0dps the enhancement applies you gain 10ap. AP is applied to everything, so there you have it, the reason it effects MM.

    Anyone? PA exp on the one handed melee weapons will increase range dps like a whetstone?

    No it does not act the same as a whetstone and has no effect on MM dps.
