    Might as well try to keep this forum alive with several threads :p

    This one is mostly for ranzogaga as he had one:

    I've been told that warriors should have one slow MH and one fast OH for more rage, been told that weapon speeds do not matter, and been told that the best is the slowest you can get.

    In all honestly, of all the arguments I've heard, I think the third's the best option, because rage has been normalized, thus weapon speed is irrelevant, and when WWing you hit for way more than with fast weapons (since damage is bigger).

    Aand, how much hit rating does a warrior need?

    Answer me you australian squid.

    Hah, using my weapons against myself you silly bear?

    Allright, I'll gve it a look, cheers.

    We should make a sticky with a guide for each class, even though it's easy enough to google hem.

    --Edit--


    I don't get it. I thought if you attack from behind they won't dodge or parry anyway. Isn't expertise a tanking stat?

    Attacking from behind removes parries from the attack table. So regardless of your class, if you're melee, always attack from behind..

    I don't know much about expertise since they added it in a patch when i wasn't playing. They removed the addition of weapon skill to gear and replaced it with expertise. And as you can see it lowers the enemies chance to dodge & parry by .25% per point of expertise.

    Attacking from behind only removes parry? Not dodge?

    Because if it does removes dodge then expertise is completly useless for DPS melee.

    Attacking from behind only removes parry.

    Personally I go with two slow weapons when I'm fury, because of the new whirlwind hitting with both weapons.

    If warriors have matching weapon speeds, they get a free flurry proc.
