Hey lameboi, what essences have you stacked in your sigil? I figure you are using the 2 water and 2 death that you can buy from the vendor, how bout the other two? Necrotic rage worth using in your opinion? Curious as to the overall stats your sigil provides.
necrotic rage, if you still have it in your bank and not equipped, would definitely be a great addition to this spec. i've overwritten it twice, however, and cannot get it back haha.
i actually also took the crit stacked AP essences and the even ones. (which death and water are). i didn't want to lose too much crit while doing this. my sigil gives me +95 str, +110 dex, +63 AP, +46 death, +67 water. (world event sigil +20 water)
works out to 918 AP and 776 crit (29.42% base, 32.42% w/ paragon buff, which is a great starting point as i get to 51% raid buffed in combat w/o crit consumables).
Lameboi, what jewelry items are you using? I have almost identical gear to you, and I can only get to 901AP/673 crit. That's completely unbuffed, not even self buffs. Str is 548, Dex is 461. You have like 100 more crit than me, and about the same AP...I don't know where you're getting the crit from.

I dont have an AP sigil, counting 325 hit set for HK i have around 860AP 760 crit unbuffed. Not realy sure if i should lower crit more. Tough my sigil has bm greater so could have a use from 1 more stat esence. As for weapons i can have either Sylvan or hylas dagger + R8sword/dagger. Also in BM i reach 320 hit with r8 2hnader making gap even more

2hander always parses significantly higher for me. Even then, I am not reaching to the numbers you have.
I guess ~120AP makes THAT big of a difference.
With dual wield you gain ~ 140 DPS from auto attacks. You lose ~200 dmg a swing per ability however. Or the 2 tests I did showed that.

i'll still feel like DW would have the edge in raid due to the range capabilities.
fights like plutonus, murdantix, sicaron would probably give the edge to 2h if what you guys are saying is true. I'll be testing as I go and relaying results here.
earlier today i pulled 1677 w/ DW and no bard.. highest parse solo by far. had alot more crits than i usually do though.
hm, i've gotta give the edge to DW after parsing with my sylvan. 100dps difference for me in favor of DW.
dw = 44.7? pvp dagger
2h = sylvan greatblade.
i dont think an upgrade of your offhand weapon would push your dps noticeably since all your attacks are based on your mainhand - so only the dmg of your offhand autoattacks would be increased.
