Hi all,

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/alikim-1300/hero/30177247

I have 1.3 from items only w/o weapons, MH sword is 1.55, OH spear is 1.2.

When I wield MH I have 2.02 aps (1.3*1.55 = 2.015, rounded up I guess).

When I add OH weapon, I have 2.25 on MH and 1.74 on OH.

So my question is: how these numbers (2.25 and 1.74) are calculated?

Looking for an exact formula that works in general including this particular build.

Because of some previous negative experience asking this question I have to add

THINGS I'M NOT INTERESTED IN HEARING:
----------------------------------------
People telling me my barb and my gear suck, how I should gear a barb, why am I asking this question, why does it matter and why it doesn't matter.

People telling me "it should be simple", "you just start with that, then add that and multiply by that and it should be it", "this is how it should be you do the math" and who never bothered to actually calculate anything.

People giving a formula without actually checking if that formula gives the correct answer for my particular gear and weapons.

Links to web sites where it will be calculated for me without telling me how exactly.

Thank you!

When you dual wield you get a 15% attack speed bonus. The math:

Main hand:
1.55 * 1.45 (30% from gear, 15% from dual wielding) = 2.2475 or ~2.25 APS

Off hand:
1.2 * 1.45 = 1.74 APS
