Yeah, at this point (mid 20s), I don't get too fretful about comparing 2 weapons to the 3rd decimal point. If I'm undecided, I'll get one of each and do some testing of my own.Even the simple average damage equation (((max-min)/2+min)/delay) is good enough as a rough idea of whether a given weapon is better then another. The trick is to have both weapons up in inspect/examine windows at the same time so that you're comparing apples-to-apples as much as possible. I usually compare using actual numbers (our green numbers) first, then also compare what the weapon tops out at.I think, that until you hit your late 20s, you will probably be replacing weapons every few levels anyway.
