Windstalker's Disc

This replacement for Copsestalker's comes with a twist:

Copsestalker's Discipline Rk. III
Description
1: Increase Damage Bonus by 6380 with 1H Blunt
2: Increase Damage Bonus by 6380 with 1H Slashing
3: Increase Damage Bonus by 10335 with 2H Blunt
4: Increase Damage Bonus by 10335 with 2H Slashing
5: Increase Damage Bonus by 6380 with Piercing
6: Increase Damage Bonus by 10335 with 2H Piercing

Imbues your weapons with energy, increasing damage done by your melee attacks.

Wildstalker's Discipline Rk. II
Description
1: Increase Damage Bonus by 6605 with 1H Blunt
2: Increase Damage Bonus by 6605 with 1H Slashing
3: Increase Damage Bonus by 10699 with 2H Blunt
4: Increase Damage Bonus by 10699 with 2H Slashing
5: Increase Damage Bonus by 6605 with Piercing
6: Increase Damage Bonus by 10699 with 2H Piercing

Imbues your weapons with energy, adding 6605 damage to your one-handed melee attacks and 10699 damage to your two-handed melee attacks. The amount of damage will be lower for faster weapons.

The 1H increase is 3.5%
The 2H increase is 3.3%

This begs the question as to the degree of lowered damage for faster weapons. Offhand weapons of delay 10 or 12 are obtainable and outparse Hornscale Blades with Copsestalkers. Some rangers find old content 19 delay weapons that they prefer. This reduced damage function is going to make choosing weapons for Wildstalker's disc a challenge.

Wildstalker's Discipline damage is based purely on a formula by delay. The difference between minimum damage dealt between Copsestalker Rank 3 and Wildstalker Rank 2 is the same value based on delay. 2 Handers still receive a larger boost over 1 Handers.

Here's your handy list to compare which weaponry you need to use with which disc:

10 Delay 1Hand - Copsestalker = +3,101dmg (crazy fast = crazy good)
Wildstalker = the opposite (crazy fast = crazy bad)

14 Delay 1Hand- Copsestalker = +1,793dmg (really fast = really good)
Wildstalker = the opposite (really fast = really bad)

18 Delay 1Hand- Copsestalker = +485dmg (fast = good)
Wildstalker = the opposite (fast = bad) Clearly a woman made this disc...

19 Delay 1Hand- Copsestalker = +158dmg
Wildstalker = the opposite (Close but still no cigar)

-------------------------- This is where it changes --------------------------------------

20 Delay 1Hand- Wildstalker = +169dmg
Copsestalker = the opposite (Starting to flip, but it's not much better)

21 Delay 1Hand- Wildstalker = +496dmg
Copsestalker = the opposite (Here we go! There's an upgrade!)

22 Delay 1Hand - Wildstalker = +823dmg
Copsestalker = the opposite (Yeah, slow is good)

23 Delay 1Hand - Wildstalker = +1,150dmg
Copsestalker = the opposite (Yep, slow your roll yo)

You get the idea, right? Lower delays with a quality ratio has relevance with the Wildstalker disc. Speed has relevance with Copsestalker disc.

36 Delay 2HB - Wildstalker = +8,742dmg (Yeah that is not a typo)
Copsestalker = lol, no

40 Delay 1HS - Wildstalker = +6,309dmg

Now you may be wondering what that means for two handers. Yes, I parsed that too. You can now utilize either with Wildstalker in the mix. Actually I believe the best two hander (Jeweled Hoarded Worker Sledgemallet) will outperform the best 1 hander (Jeweled Hoarded Blood Orchid Katana) on basic auto attack dps.

Wildstalker Rank 2 using Hoarded Worker Sledgemallet (group version, 36dly/421dmg):
Combat Dummy Azia on 3/26/2018 in 1302sec -- Auto attack, buffed with auto kick running (did not have enchanter haste)

Arahgorn
--- DMG: 83630083 (100%) @ 64232 dps (64232 sdps)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wildstalker Rank 2 using Hornscale Blade (21dly/181dmg) and Spike, Emperor's End (21dly/183dmg):
Combat Dummy Azia on 3/26/2018 in 1300sec -- Auto attack, buffed with auto kick running (did not have enchanter haste)

Arahgorn
--- DMG: 83565440 (100%) @ 64281 dps (64281 sdps)

I can add some weapons/delays to your list from a set of parses I did back when I made the original post:
