That sounds about right yes.
Basicly it's calculated as
weapon base damage * 50% * 125% = resulting damage
I'm trying to figure out how damage from the off hand is calculated.
From what I understand when dual wielding, damage done by the weapon in your off hand is reduced by 50%. After spending 3 points in Nerves of Cold Steel (NoCS) you increase damage done by your offhand weapon by 25%. Nerves of Cold Steel comes in to play after the 50% reduction. So taking all that into account I'm trying to figure out if I'm correct in saying the following:
Damage done by your main hand weapon = 100%
Damage done by your off hand weapon (before NoCS) = 50%
Damage done by your off hand weapon (after 3 points in NoCS is applied) = 62.5%
Is that right or have I missed something?
So if I'm dual wielding 2 Nighttimes for example and they both hit for their max. damage (605), then:
main hand damage = 605
off hand damage = 378
I was actually re-reading you guide here:
At one point it says:
Which would mean the off hand does 62.5% damage. But then in a paragraph that follows shortly after it says:When dual wielding, your off-hand weapon receives a 50% damage reduction penalty. The talent Nerves of Cold Steel (NoCS) will increase the damage done by your off-hand by 8/16/25% and that value is applied after the baseline reduction, so functionally the net penalty will only be 37.5% for 3 points invested.
Since I'd seen 57.5% posted elsewhere I started doubting my interpretation of the 62.5% figure.Remember the off-hand weapon will do only 57.5% damage.
the 57.5% was proberly before the buff to Nerves of cold steel in patch 3.3.3
No worries. Just glad to know I'm not going crazy.
