4.0.1 Weapon Choice

Paladin
Well now that AP has been removed from AGI for Paladins, does that mean that Heroic Bloodfall is pretty useless in comparison to other weapons? I am trying to decide if it is worth using regular Glorenzelg since it has a nice chunk of str on it.

Any opinions?
Well, here's a list of what I can offer: Shadowmourne > Heroic Glorenzelg > Heroic Crypt Maker > Heroic Byntroll

I mean, if anything, Grab Crypt maker, the thing is an amazing weapon to deck out.
use it if you have it. it looks great and and if it's the only thing available you might as well use it over any polearm.

i think that heroic bryntroll is still better than glorenzelg, though. i've not bothered looking at elitist jerks recently since until the beta settles down their theorycraft is useless.
Even non-heroic Glorenzelg seems to be a better DPS weapon over Heroic Bryntroll IMO. Bryntroll's proc seems almost non-existent now.

(I still PvP with H-Bryntroll due to when the proc does happen, it is nice)

AGI never gave us AP, but to be fair to you I believe you just misspoke and meant that "AP has been removed from AGI based weapons".

It can still provide ~3% of your total damage done, despite any changes to proc mechanics.
You're not looking at the top end damage of normal glorenzelg vs a Heroic. Item level still comes into effect. Heroic byntroll offers 1 extra socket, at a 325.5 DPS increase. As appose to Glorenzelg which is a 311.5 and is slower. Yes, slow weapons are better, but the DPS given from a normal VS a heroic is still there.
to answer the OP's question: yes, heroic bloodfall is useless. use your sword, it's better.

And yes, heroic cryptmaker is awesome now that you can reforge away all that hit. Take it and make fury warriors cry :)
