Yeah, it's always irked me that they call it "weapon speed," because it's not a rate in the traditional sense (i.e. units of 1/s). Something like "weapon swing time" would be more accurate.

Yup.

Noradin wrote:I never meant to imply that fast weapons might be better for ppm with or without reckoning. To be frank I did't look at that part of the post at all.
The discussion about the ideal weapon to make use of reckoning should still apply for procs on swings (which was a speed of 1 swing per 2.6s if I remember correctly).


Actually, there's no ideal weapon speed for Reckoning. Anything above a 2.0 hasted swing speed is identical as far as Reckoning is concerned. It's only when you start using fast weapons that Reckoning actually decreases in effectiveness (so fast tanking weapons are worse in that case as well).

I think I had the old SoC on the mind which had an ICD that made it useless with Reckoning.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

I think that one was a baindaid and an exception.
Later they fixed that kind of problem by not allowing those procs to work on specials (and reckoning is no special in that sense, it does "white hits" just like sword specialisation does).
