off-hand weapon?

Does the off-hand weapon only do a fraction of the damage of the main? I have a pair of matching sabers and my character sheet shows primary and secondary attack listings. Is this because my off-hand weapon is both main and off-hand? Would I get better results going back to the lvl 10 class weapon?

nah its nothing to do with the fact that ure using a mh+oh weapon.

whats happening is that your offhand has a multiplier. this means that the damage it deals is modified by a certain amount (30% base iirc).

there is a talent called dual wield mastery at the base of the carnage tree that increases this multiplier up to 66%.

so untalented, your offhand will deal 30% of its listed weapon damage. when talented, it will do 66% of that amount.

also note, that your mainhand damage factors in bonus damage, whereas your offhand doesnt. this is why you see such a big difference between damage on mh + oh.
