I am interested in anyones' opinion that cares to give it, and also the experiences or reasoning behind their opinions, if they care to offer them. The question is: which do you prefer in weapons- fast with light damage, or slow with heavy damage? In pvm, there are many instances where I will try out a heavy damage (albeit slower weapon) and it seems that even with the extra damage, the kill takes longer than the fast weapon with lighter damage. Is all this answered in the "damage per second" column under combat, or are there extra considerations to be taken into account? I recall that once upon a time, the "damage per second" differed between a heavily armored opponent and a lightly amored opponent. I would assume that this still holds true- correct? End of post- I'd like to get a feel for which is more prefered over-all by the experienced fighters, and which style of weapon they've had best success with. Ah, which raises another point- would this differ fighting a mage, as compared to another melee fighter? Thanks for any and all comments.
