A Path of Exile Weapon DPS Calculator to Increase Damage
As with most RPGs, your success in Path of Exile hinges on more than just your weapon’s base damage. There’s a less important performance metric that is far more important when it comes to choosing a deadly implement with which to arm yourself during your march across Wraeclast: damage per second (“DPS”). DPS is, as its name suggests, the amount of damage that you are able to deliver each second based on your weapon, armor, abilities, and stats. When choosing a weapon, its DPS can often be more important than its base damage. For example, a sword with low base damage but high DPS would be the superior choice when compared to a high damage weapon with low DPS. However, PoE doesn’t tell you a weapon’s DPS in its tooltip. Fortunately, there is a PoE Weapon DPS Calculator feature that has different ones. We’re here to help you find them!
The Best PoE Weapon DPS Calculators
Now that you understand why DPS is so important, and how DPS calculation works, we’re ready to share some of our favorite PoE weapon DPS calculators with you. That’s right, you don’t have to do any of that nasty math yourself when deciding which weapon to use when carving up your enemies across Wraeclast. There are actually a good number of calculators out there that do roughly the same thing. You simple Ctrl+C when hovering over a weapon in the game, and then paste it into your chosen browser-based calculator.
Where the different calculators distinguish themselves from one another is in the user interface and the level of detail they provide in their input and output. For example, you can find a dozen different DPS calculators on GitHub that are a simple, no-frills box for you to paste your weapon, with a space for “Total DPS” next to it that populates after you’ve pasted your weapon of choice. Others allow you to simulate crafting the item so you can see what its DPS will be when you eventually finish crafting it. Others still make you enter the variables of the DPS equation manually before hitting enter to receive your results. There is, frankly, a ton of them – and they all work well enough. The only thing you can really do is hunt around on Google, the PoE forums, Reddit, and the like until you find one that you find aesthetically pleasing and easy to use.
If you want to survive the dangers of Wraeclast, you’re going to need a good weapon. Choosing the best weapon requires more than simply reading the weapons tooltip – you need to calculate its DPS. While you can do this calculation by hand, many kind members of the community have created calculators to do all the work for you. You can find many of them online, but you can use one of our favorites – linked above – to get started! More poe news please keep eyes on U4gm which would devote to offer amounts of poe items online.
