Im not complaining but how does the mechanism work?

Right now im thinking of replacing all my rings and amulets for +DAM stat just because of de huge impact on DPS.

Cheers

If you had no strength - it would have made a bigger difference. The +x to damage increases your base damage, the +x to strength increases your damage multiplier.... The higher your existing strength the less of an effect this has

tnx. a bunch, figured as much, of to farming ruby's.

To keep it simple

Assume that your weapon does 20 damage and you have 100 strength, you will hit for 20 + (100% of 20) = 40

Case A : if you add +2 damage your new damage will be : 22 + (100% of 22) = 44

Case B : if you add 22 strength (without the +2 damage in case A) your damage will be : 20 + (122% of 20) = 44.4

So when you have 20 damage and 100 strength : +2 damage is roughly equal to 22 strength

==============

This means that +damage is highly beneficial if you have high strength, and +strength is highly beneficial if you have high weapon damage... The trick is to find the sweet spot :)

Awesome post, thanks for the explanations!

Take in consideration that strength also adds to your defense.

In case Dual Wielded 1h vs 2h, first set is excellent for fast skills - Frenzy, WW. Also gathers Fury fast and is excellent with +hp per hit items. 2h big dmg slow weapon shines in one time use skills - Cleave for AoE, Bash, Earthquake for example. In theory, %life leech (or whatever its called in D3) requires SOLID amount of dmg to be noticeable.

Extremely inaccurate. There are damage calculators with math derived from the actual game system calculators build into the game. Assuming will lead u astray the higher level you go. U'll be stacking strg wondering why it didn't equate like it did when you were level 10-55. And like all things in d3 its about BALANCE. using the accurate calculators will allow you to fine tune ur damage AND defense at the same time. good luck young ones!
