    DPS of legendary weps

    I'm new to the legendary weps, just got my first one today. A bow for my hunter. I noticed that it only has 40.1 dps...that's very underwhelming for something that is supposed to be legendary. Her non legendary level 50 bow had something like 114 dps. IS it normal for legendary weps to have less than half the dps of regular crafted weps?

    Can you post an image of this lvl 50 Bow with 114 DPS? Because, all of the lvl 50 Guild Crafted Bows only have a DPS of 47.3.

    No... That is assuming your Bow actually does have a DPS of 114...

    The thing about Legendary Items is they gain experience for each mob you kill, and for each lvl 51+ quest you complete. And, as they gain levels, they'll gain points which you can spend to rank up their Legacies.

    When identified, Weapons have main Legacy to increase DPS, and have 3 Major Legacies. For every 10 levels a LI gains, you'll need to reforge it. And, at lvl 10, 20 and 30, you add either one of two random Major or Minor Legacies.

    Once your LI achieves the 22nd level, it'll have enough points to rank its DPS up to its max level. So, your initial Weapon can have a DPS of 47.8, which is greater than the DPS of 47.3 the lvl 50 Guild Bows have.

    Generally, for 99% of the time, your legendary weapon and secondary legendary will outperform their non-legendary counterparts.

    Once you unlock legendaries, you won't go back to using non-legendaries.

    Unless you're after cosmetic looks.

    OP, take a look at the link in my signature for diagrams that detail the primary ratings (such as DPS) for "legendary" items.

    Nice chart Sny.

    Any idea why some of the level "checkpoints" (65, 75,85) have a higher difference in DPS between the crafted third age and reforged second age than the level 95 ones do (especially the 2-handed)?

    Trying to figure out if it's worth the expense of an emerald shard and flawless symbol to make SA weapons.

    Why, yes, I'd say the reason would be rather obvious, just from looking at the charts, no?

    It involves the distinct lack of "any idea" on the part of those responsible for these numbers.

    Thanks all for the replies :-) I have been working with my legendary weapons and they are definitely much better than regular weps now that I have some experience with them.
