"Weapon DPS" elemental damage
Does Strength increase the total weapon dps of a given weapon, even if part or all of that dps is elemental? I'm thinking of trying a Staff Engineer, Strength/Focus. That way I would get the improved overall weapon DPS from Str, and that would stack (via focus) with whatever portion of weapon DPS is elemental damage. Would they stack in this way? Ideally I'm thinking a Flame Hammer or Ember Quake engy using 2H Fire staff. IF it works the way I'm suggesting. Not sure if it's worth sacrificing Heavy Lifting but it seems like it should be titanic damage if I can find a Staff with comparable DPS to other 2H'ers.
