Yeah, I've just never got why people don't talk about dual Republic Daggers? It always seems to be just the singular "Republic Dagger". Even with Wyvern Earring, would not /nin be quite a lot faster? If a single wielded Republic Dagger can beat a Fort.Axe by a small margin surely dual wield increases the gap by a fair amount.
15% reduction with Dual Wield II, 20% with Suppa (but then what kind of DRK are you?). One dagger would be 2.5 seconds a round, two would be 4.25 seconds a round, 2.125 seconds a dagger. With 50% haste base I have:
50% haste Single 150 delay - 24 swings
55% haste single 250 delay (Wyvern) - 26 swings
50% haste Dual 150 delay without suppa - 28 swings
50% haste dual 150 delay with suppa - 30 swings
60% haste single 150 delay (wyvern) - 30 swings
55% dual 150 delay without suppa - 31 swings
55% dual 150 delay with suppa - 33 swings
The gap closes the more haste you have, though these are extreme amounts (Three Homam pieces, Turban, and Wyvern Earring with capped magical would be 62%) without Hasso/DB, while /DRG would gain you a few hits from Jumps and some hate reduction as opposed to Utsusemi.
So: Unless you have a Suppa or don't have at least 12% haste in other gear or aren't getting full magical haste, /DRG's jumps, Wyvern earring, Accuracy Trait, and Hate Reduction will make up the difference and rectify other benefits. Edited, Aug 18th 2009 12:12pm by Raelix
