What about Attack Speed, if a weapon has 20% attack speed is that factored into the Displayed DPS on the tooltip?

Okay, borrowing this thread for a second since the answers in this thread were not satisfying at all.
So the question is, What stats is factored into the DPS display in the tooltip of a weapon?
Depends where you are looking at it. If you are looking at it on the AH, only the actual attributes of the weapon affect the DPS number (+dmg gems, elemental effects, etc). When you are looking at the item in your inventory, your other worn items affect it as well
I'm talking about that giant text that shows the DPS on the Auction House. I know that Dex/Int/Str does NOT affect the DPS number on the weapon, but i know that the elemental damage as mentioned above does.
So does % Crit Damage/Attack speed/% damage/% chance for X-Y bleed damage count towards the DPS display of a weapon on AH?
No, unless those attributes are part of the weapon, not from other gear you're wearing.
Would be nice if someone who knew this shared their intel with us ^_^
Want to know this because then one have to factor in these stats when buying a weapon, not only the DPS and the primary stat.
You guys are all abit wrong imo.
Lets take an example...
Weapon x has DPS: 660.40
These are the stats below:
Now this dps is calculated this way:
312 + 704 = 1016 / 2 = 508 x 1.30= 660.40
To illustrate it the weapon comes from this picture:
This shows a few things:
str/dex are NOT taken in the weapons dps...
arcane dmg is NOT taken in the weapons dps...else it would be even higher..
the arcane dmg is taken into your dmg which u can see when u pull up ur inventory
but it has nothing to do with your dps on weapon...why would it else be as extra stat anyway?
However IAS will stand on the "extra" stats...but it will also increase the atk speed of your weapon...(standing on top of the item) which will cause your dps being increased
damage:312-704 includes the arcane damage.
The "damage" value listed on the weapon is the base damage for that item type + any added damage (adds xxx-xxx damage, adds xx to minimum damage, adds xxx to maxium damage etc).
If your calculation was correct in all cases, the weapon dps would be the same on the AH and in player inventory, while this isn't the case.
I believe (for example) that when taken into player inventory, additional +x-x damage items, such as on rings also affect displayed dps.
Perhaps it's only '+dmg' that affects it?
hmm so you guys are saying that a WEAPONS dps....in your inventory
includes the following:
dex on the weapon it self(NOT the dex on for example your rings)
the arcane dmg on the weapon it self
dmg from an gem(if added)
But when it is on an AH
You will just see the dps based on the dmg of the weapon?
Meaning NOT the dex on it
but the arcane will still be calculated...
This makes sense to me...since the AH doesnt know ur a monk = dex = dmg...
But why does the arcane dmg is displayed while its already in the dps ...makes no sense
why display it anyway then? Just for fun?
The weapon damage listed on its tooltip only ever shows the combination of weapon base damage + added damage (adds xxx-xxx, adds xxx minimum damage, adds xxx maximum damage) and damage added from gems (but the gem damage is not displayed on the AH
