Dual Wielding as a Gladiator

#1Elite_199Posted 9/24/2009 7:09:25 PM
Just a few questions...

1) Is dual wielding really superior to a single polearm in terms of DPS?

2) Is it best to use two swords or Dagger/Sword?

Gladiator's DPS strength relies on AOE damage and high-hitting single weapons that it takes for its stats...

so Dual wielding just decreases that strength for gladiators

By the time you're around level 25-ish, you're NEVER going to see a normal attack again. You'll be using skill after skill after skill, so as said in the above post, those skills aren't going to do as much damage if you just use swords.

DW has around 30% more single target DPS than 2-handers. With that being said, you lose KBs on crits as well as the ability to AoE.
