    How important IAS for Berserker Barbarian

    Hi guys, I have been a longtime lurker on this forum but this is my first post.


    I was wondering how important is attack speed to a Berserker. I know increasing you attack speed helps your overall dps. So far I have been using bone snap which is pretty slow. Considering changing to a faster weapon, maybe oath runeword. Is there a certain speed that a berserker barb should reach?

    Pretty darn important. Use this. Plug everything in and it will give you a attack frequency (hits per second). Multiply that number by your average damage and you'll get the average damage per second. If you have an alternative weapon you were thinking about using, calculate it's damage per second and see which one is higher. Use that in your decision to swap weapons.
