Unless the attack is one which is normalized (which most 2-handed attacks are not) top end matters. The slower a weapon, the better it is. Thi is in a LOT of ways. 1: damage on most attacks is based on a single swing. The slower the weapon, the bigger the top AND bottom end of damage. A 1.5 speed dagger getting an extra attack does 50% the damage of a 3.0 weapon on that attack on average. 2: enchant procs on PPM care, a lot. Instant attacks use the percentage set by the base speed. If a weapon only swings 15 times and it is supposed to proc 3 times in a minute, there is a 20% chance per swing. Instants get to use that 20% chance too. Now if the weapon is swining 21 tikes in a minute it goes from 1/5 to 1/7. The instant attack take the same hit. Okay so maybe 2 is a couple and not a lot. But they are big ways. I have often refused to take a "better" but faster weapon because it ends up not being much of an upgrade. I won't replace a 359 with this thing, just not worth the cost.
