    Well, it actually doesn't cancel straight out. There was a lot of discussion about this disparity. For example:

    Here is an extreme imaginary example:
    1. Dagger with 0.1 swing speed (10x/second) with 60 Damage
    2. Longbow with 1 swing speed (1x/second) with 500 Damage

    We will assume that each point of armor reduces damage by 1 point. This may not actually be true, but for our purposes, lets just first assume that.

    If the boss has 0 armor, then the dagger will have 600dps and the longbow will have 500dps. It seems like the dagger is better damage dealer. However, bosses never have 0 armor and I've seen in past estimations that they are often in the 70-80+ range for the higher level bosses.

    Lets assume this boss has 50 armor. The new calculation then follows:

    dagger:
    10 attacks X (60 damage - 50 armor) = 10 x 10 = 100 effective dps

    longbow:
    1 attack X (500 damage - 50 armor) = 1 x 450 = 450 effective dps

    The higher the armor, the greater the fast swinging weapons lose out. I would imagine that a longbow vs. dagger, the longbow would out damage the dagger even if it was just autoattacking alone, no specials included.
    Wow, never realized that. You should make a guide :-D

    If practice makes perfect and perfection is impossible, why practice?
    Oh, wait... No need to practice. iHax.

    Unfortunately, I don't know the details of it well enough to make a guide. But I remember reading about it in posts from other big contributors in the forum.

    Wow. High credits to you for doing this, if only you could combine dis with the other guide about calculating crits & hits & dodges etc. as both the guides are very useful, but nowhere near as useful as they are together.

    Try using both to make your mind up if you're struggling with these calcs.
