Atox,

Weapons of a given level are all approximately the same, damage (dps) wise. Different skins (appearamce) do use defferent resources, but the results seem to be about the same. The only real reason to go for a different skin is what suits your fancy for looks.

A select few skins offer a damage bonus. For pistols, the Lamprey comes to mind...and all the Mustafar weapons generally have a bonus.

Heroic schematic have 2% bonus. The others are either .5% or 1%.

For instance, the Paragon polearm can get to 1215+ dps. The average polearm falls in between 1190-1200 max.
