In general the damage output of typical 2-h weapons is considerably higher on a per-level-you-can-aquire/equip-at basis than it is for 1-handers. This breaks down a little at the extreme high end...but still the unmodified Epic Legendary God Hammer is something like 1600 DPS, vs about 1350 for the highest 1-handers.
Also a small but occasionally significant factor if you learn to use it (it takes a little practice, and doesn't apply to every situation) is the extra range of 2-handers vs melee 1-handers and melee monsters. range on 2-handers is 1.5 'meters'. Range on in-your-face melee is 1 'meter'. If you get good at it, and are fast, and have some knockback, you can often beat back a single or primary attacker so that you are hitting him on each approach and he is rarely getting close enough to strike.

Best native Dex is 406. Not wearing best gear now, optimized for fishing. Best gear is all 'muled out', but I think the peak 'come'n'die, as*****s', fully geared Dex was about 720 (with enhanced Oonor's Band), or 650 (with 'next best', non-penalized ring).
