In case people are unsure about what I mean regarding why spell power is on caster weapons, take the DPS value of a two hander and multiple it by 3 (the base cast speed a spell has to have in order to gain 100% spell power co-efficient) and then compare it to the spell power value on a staff.One handers make it harder to work out because you can't dual-wield caster items, and the disparity of the off-hand damage reduction, but if you take the DPS of a one hander and multiple it by 1.5 (the total DPS, at base value, when dual-wielding), then multiple that by 3, then you get...well, very similar, but slightly higher values. I assume at that point they take into account the intellect spell power of a caster off-hand, but I am guess at that point. It might have more to do with very few special attacks being affected by off-hand swings, so DW-melee get a slight buff.Either that or I defuncted myself.
