1. ## 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.
