Str on weapon added to dps ?

Barbarian
Hi,

Is str on weapons are already shown on weapon dps or is it added separetely ?
No, its not.
its not what ?
No - its answer to your question
Its not increasing that big number what you see like weapon DPS.
I take it the Str is added onto your DPS in the details section of your character sheet. I don't think it's added onto the value od DPS stated for the weapon.

On this line of thought though, is +xx% damage listed on weapons already taken into account in the damage values or DPS of the weapon or is this a massive extra when you equip?

Thanks.

They're already taken into account when calculating the weapon DPS and don't effect your overall DPS.
What about a baba looting a wizard weapon with damage + intellect . Can me as babarian see how much damage wizard will do with the intelect increase for thier stats priority?
Str/Dex/Int is not calulated in the weapon DPS. This is because it's an dynamic damage increase. It all depends how much STR you already got, how much attackspeed, critchance, critdmg.

So for someone 100 STR could mean 100 DPS, but for others 100 STR could mean 300 DPS.
