    Trying to understand the numbers

    This always puzzled me, my bow (purely made up numbers) says 58-122 common damaga and 47.1 DPS so what is the relation there? What does the 58-122 depict? the dps part is fairly simple to understand the higher the better etc but what are they talkin about on the 58-122 is it all the time is it conditional?

    Those numbers are the un-buffed, unresisted range of damage per hit. If it takes you 2 seconds to fire a shot, and you get 80 damage, DPS is a 40. The dps numbers they give you, I believe, are the median damage divided by the weapon speed. I think, if I recall etc etc. Someone else will be along to clarify if I missed on something.

    Those numbers are the minimum and maximum damage range on the weapon. When you use a skill it will do X-Y damage based off, among other things, those minimum and maximum damage values.

    DPS is calculated by dividing the median value of the weapon's damage range (Min+Max/2) by the weapon's speed. All bows/crossbows are 2.2 speed, so to figure DPS on a bow or crossbow you use [Min+max/2]/2.2 to get DPS.

    FYI, 1H melee weapons are all 1.9 speed and 2H melee weapons are all 2.5 speed.

    More more eloquently stated than mine.

    Just remember, the DPS they give is just an 'averaged' DPS based on the basic damage numbers of the weapon and does not factor in crits, buffs and misses. It's just a quick way to compare the potential of each weapon, not a hard DPS number.
