When the computer calculates the DPS and attack speed of both swords it takes the average. The misconception here is that Dual Wielding adds to the DPS where it is a matter of chance, depending on how many points you have put into DW in the Warfare tree. So often times there is a drop in DPS, when, in reality, there is more damage.

It will add to DPS even without the dual wield skills going off if you stack weapon mods. That's the real benefit, the procs are just a nice bonus.
