Is it better to roll 1d12 or 2d6?
Using this formula we see that our 2d6 weapon deals an average of 7 damage (3.5 * 2) per hit. On the other hand, the 1d12 weapon only deals 6.5 damage per hit. Since 7 is greater than 6.5 we can again confirm that the greatsword has a better chance of dealing more consistent damage each hit.
