Dual Wield (Paragon) vs Two Handed Weapon (Champion)Follow

So I have been some what torn in my classes. The biggest thing is if I want one of my two classes to be Paragon or Champion. I'm going for something of DPS, over all it seems like most people say to invest in either one of these classes. I usually am not one for two handed weapons since they are usually slower to hit, however from a DPS point does any one have any advice?

Or a reason to choose/why Paragon or Champion would be better then the other?

Please help meh

You could look over at my thread. It gives a break down of what you will be doing.

I'm almost certain Paragon will be doing more DPS end game. Although I think its close enough to be personal preference. If you like dual wielding go Paragon. If you like 2 handed weapons go Champion.

Personally, I enjoy Paragon way more than Champion. Although, I will be going whatever is higher DPS.

Anyways, look at my thread and maybe it will give you more insight.

DW vs 2H is really a battle between burst dmg and sustained dmg. 2H of course being burst is good for shorter battles but DW is good for longer fights. This from my experience of course

The other thing that I was thinking about also was the abilities you get for each job. Even though Champion has some high DMG skills at the start, Paragon does have alot to offer as far as keeping you going in longer fights (i.e. Bend Like the Reed).

The other thing is that I was looking at pairing one of these with Beastmaster. Since I really like Beastmaster from what I played I wanted it to go with either Paragon or Champion. I came across alot of Beastmater/champion people which at low levels seems good. However, in the longer run it seems like Beastmaster/Paragon would be a better combo.

Thoughts any one?
