    Default DPS calc help please

    Hello,

    I'm trying to estimate/calculate some DPS and I would like to be sure I use the correct method.
    What I do is:

    1. calculate average damage per hit:

    for thf: (1+doublestrike%)*avg_dmg_thf

    for twf: (1+doublestrike%)*avg_dmg_mh + 0.8*avg_dmg_oh
    (assuming gtwf)

    2. I use the attack speed (hits/min) from mrcow (http://forums.ddo.com/showpost.php?p...0&postcount=13)

    avg DPS = (avg_dmg * att_speed) / 60

    Is that correct ?

    Thank you

    Yes. Assuming you don't want to account for fortification and resistances as well. Also, if you're going to account damage boost / haste boost you need some modifications as well, obviously.
    An easy way ( but not 100% accurate way) is to simply assume that you have enough boosts to keep em up 66% of the time.
    And then take the boosted attackspeed *0.66 + the unboosted attackspeed *0.33 and add em together for average attackspeed. Same goes for damage boost of course, except you take average boosted damage *0.66 + average unboosted damage *0.33

    Also note that you'll lose 1.2 seconds of swinging when boosting (2.4 per minute) (0.6 with QD) if you don't use cleave or any other combat feat.
