Are Danetta's 1H Weapons Any Good?

#1waterfiendPosted 11/30/2012 11:09:50 AM
I found a Danetta's Revenge but it was relatively low damage. Like 895 or so and I read the max is ~1100.

I have heard some of the top DHs use 2x 1H Crossbows. I've also seen people rocking Manticore + DML. So, which is better overall for DPS? I realize other factors play into it as well - like LoH, LS, IAS, socket, etc....

Top is like 99 percent manticore and dml lol

Handbows are terrible for their damage. If you look underneath a handbow's DPS, you can see a range of damage it deals. Compare that to a 2H bow or a 2H xbow and it blows it out of the water.

Not many DHs use handbows. You'll get the most damage from a dbl socket Manticore + 19 to 20% IAS DML

Thanks to both of you for the information. That answered my question!

I would like to add that the following are the only bows that should be used as a DH:
Manticore
Calamity
Windforce

I actually do use them, but they're not good at all. I sold my Manticore for them and lost a LOT of damage and a lot of gold. Sure looks cool, though, especially with Evasive Fire.

I dropped the #7 world ranked Danetta's Revenge. I loved it, but moved on because it can't roll a socket and +CHD together, and I couldn't ever find a good enough Danetta's Spite to make up for it. If Jagged Spikes proc was still viable, it would probably be more valuable.

I have both of her set bows and a Calamity.
I do not have a Manticore yet.

I like max attack speed. I am not sure what mine would be with a MantiDML setup.
I am at 3.4 now. I think the DH would max at ~4 viably/4.5 showy)

I want Charsi back something fierce. I would be buying a 1 mil white item right now.
