Ive had a couple questions in regards to the Slow/slow vs. Slow/Fast.
My understanding is that Flame tongue weapon has been normalized in 3.1.
Pre-3.1, FT would have the same base damage, no matter the weapon speed, which proved the faster weapon was superior.
Ok, so lets fast forward to current times. 3.1 brought around the normalization of FT. I am under the impression that normalization allows for the same amount of damage to be done within a controlled amount of time, regardless of weapon speed. Hence all weapons are viable in terms of the damage produced by a fast OH vs a slow OH.
With this in mind, MSW charges procs from melee hits, which in turn provide for a larger dps gain overall.
My question to be answered is a. am i not understanding the normalization of FT correctly?; b. If i am, why a slow weapon over a fast.
