DPS Calculation

Blade Flurry's tooltip is not too helpful, because it shows Average Damage and doesn't account for stage bonus. Here is how you can find out your actual DPS:

Base*1.6*2*(1+0.75*Stage)

where Base is the base damage given by gem level, and Stage ranges from 0.2 to 1.2 depending on which stage level you usually reach before releasing. This formula also assumes your return strike(s) can hit an enemy; remove the 2 in the middle if you want to know what happens when your return strikes don't hit an enemy.

For example, at gem level 20, with "perfect channeling," as of patch 2.6:

.564*1.6*2*(1+0.75*1.2) = 3.42912, or 343% weapon damage per second. Note that your DPS will be slightly lower in game because you cannot reach perfect channeling, only get very close.
