• Due to the discovery that melee weapons do not scale properly with attack speed, these values are not accurate and cannot be used for calculating melee attack rates.*

As a number cruncher i grew tired of the arbitrary "attack rate" numbers given for each weapon and decided to do some testing on the actual hit rates of the various stances. To keep it uniform, i only did the combos which are easily repeateable over an extended period of time (namely the basic, forward, backward and block combos).

To get a mostly accurate number i repeated the combo for 60 seconds and counted the number of hits within that 60 seconds, then divided it by 60.

I then divided the value obtained by the attack rate of the weapon to get a value for a 1.0 attack speed weapon of that class.

here are the results: (missing a few stances, namely malicious raptor, stalking fan, the dual dagger stances and gemini cross, will have all but stalking fan done within a few days.)

alot of damage multipliers are not accounted for, should get round to that after all stances are completed.
