    Default Question about weapon DPS.

    Hey folks,

    I just picked up a sword with tanking stats from the third boss in Drowned Halls:

    When I DPS I dual wield with paragon, should I use this in my main hand? I have two Blackheart Blades:

    which I had been using.

    It's my understanding the higher DPS will make skills hit harder despite the sword having tank type stats.

    Went and hit the dummy for a few minutes with each weapon. I get higher ability damage with the tank sword.

    As far as overall dps I'm going to guess that the tank sword will be best as well, despite having a bit less attack power and crit than with the two daggers.

    Your guess is correct.

    The DPS on the weapon matters far more than small stat difference.

    Thanks Rizaz, I had thought so but just wanted to double check.
