According to several individuals on the EJ forums, Main Gauche is actually a normalized special (yellow) attack. While your concern is valid for the main hand speed being counter-intuitive, the off-hand speed being matched to main gauche is considerably less important- so fast will win the day. As is my understanding, Combat now favors a 1.4 speed dagger in the off-hand, according to their preliminary testing.

Is it normalized as in it's based off weapon DPS, or normalized in that it has its attack power coefficient normalized like Sinister Strike or another instant attack? Even though SS's AP coefficient is normalized, a slower weapon still wins, but not by as much.

"Main Gauche is actually a normalized special (yellow) attack."This would further my theory that Combat mastery is intended to work in a way that is similar to Windfury Weapon. Chase brings up an important question, about how it's normalized... if it's normalized in the way that windfury is, then you'd want a slow offhand.

A sword/axe/mace would be preferable over a dagger. When normalized, daggers have a lower coefficient (1.7 vs 2.4 I believe).
