at 60 its 11.

for damage calculations its more complicated than simply taking ( weapon damage + damage bonus ) / delay.

if you want a simple formula to compare weapons potential dps, consider ( weapon damage x 2 + damage bonus) / delay to compare the benefit of 1h weapons in the primary slot.... for the secondary you don't get the damage bonus.

in reality, it also depends on your attack rating, strength, level, combat skill levels, and the targets AC/level/etc and is really convoluted.

I leveled my bard through melee only up to 48 so far. It has been fun. Still don't know how to swarm and don't really care too. I use Di'zok Wristsnapper (10/18) MH and Guardians Mace (12/24) OH at the moment. Given the handicap us bards have in the melee game I can put out some decent dmg. I'm able to twist 5 songs, 2 being dots, a str/atk/atk buff, a decrease atk/movement speed and fear/whatever.
Bards have so much utility it's unreal. Definitely one of my favorite toons to play.

I believe the best two weapons for bard you can get without raiding are:
https://wiki.project1999.com/Blade_of_Carnage
https://wiki.project1999.com/Swiftblade_of_Zek

But they are obviously pretty expensive.
And both would be a waste on a bard ... our dps is comparative rubbish even with the best.

Its (blam stick) is pretty good. Especially on lower lvl mobs

Smashing something for 178 feels pretty good.

Bard dps sucks no matter what you put on, just swarm.
