Interesting. What weapons did you do the damage comparison with? And what was the average damage gap?So I used to also think that dw did more damage when you fill crit gemmed everything. One day I decided to do my own math to find out if I was correct, only to find that 2h actually had the higher damage numbers if you compare same weapon same grade.
The advantage of dual wield comes from attack speed. Attack speed makes your gcds much shorter, so you are able to get skills off much faster in a shorter time period. Obviously there’s other things such as parrying ranged attacks and being able to swap to shield but the main focus is the attack speed. Overall, 2h will have the higher burst damage, but dw will win the sustained dps race
