After you have 55 CC, the dmg bonus becomes more important and contributes to more DPS than 10 CC does. We generally get very close to 10 CC on our shield, so the extra 10 CC from weapon masters is like pissing in the wind at a certain point. Also weps like swords/daggers give us approx .2 more aps than say a mace, and helps SnB out since we dont get the 15% AIS increase that DW gets.
