Is it worth buying Drygores if I have a Masterwork Spear of Annihilation and no DW setup? I've been trying to switch from using full revo but because I've used it for so long my gear is out of sync with the recommended upgrade order on the PVME github. I'm mostly doing mid tier bossing like Vindicta.

Is T90 DW > T92 2H for single target DPS?

Outside of BIS perks, mutated abilities and T99 prayer I have everything else recommended.

Thanks in advance. :)

It really depends on level I guess. You really want to be able to cleave + decimate a lot in your rotation and since one is dw and other is 2h you need to switch a lot.
So yeah having dw is still very worth it.9

Thanks for the advice, I'm still pretty new to using EOC properly but I've noticed a massive difference in kill times with only a few changes. From what you said it seems like thinking about which one does more DPS when you camp a style is the wrong way to go about it and raw stats mean less than I thought.

Is switching between DW and 2H with a proper rotation a more significant DPS increase than something like the difference between on zerk aura / off zerk aura or going up a tier or 2 of overloads?

Yes your ability rotation is way more important than your actual gear in terms of pure DPS.
But you always want to make sure to have 100% accuracy so if you don't have that you should get better gear. This is mostly for high end bosses though.

It's hard for me to answer cause that one also depends on accuracy and other stuff. But the difference between a proper rotation with dw + 2h for hurricane, cleave and earthquake will make a huge difference. But zerk aura and elder ovl is also a huge difference and so are perks.
Learning your zerk rotation (ultimate 20 sec 100% dmg boost) with mutated barge into a bled channeled ability (Assasult (prefered), destroy or greater flury) and still getting 3 thresholds off during the zerk and using your cleave/decimates (7s cooldown basic abilities).
There is so much and it can quickly become too much but if you want to learn I'd recommend putting in the effort it takes to understand and learn not just do what others tell you.

Thanks for the advice LovveL.

I ended up buying maces and perking them with P6AS1 and AS4R1 and my kill speed at Vindicta is about on par with what I was getting with 2H camp which is promising since I feel like I'm learning to walk again swapping weapons so much.

A feeling I get is that 2H DW swapping benefits a lot more from either limitless or greater barge than 2H camp for the zerk rotation. Hurricane, quake and assault seems easier to pull off than DW zerk rotations.

Seems worth it once you've learned how to use it.
