It seems like the blues heard the outcries of shaman and gave us an alternative to RNG trash loot drops and Nefarian for weapons. While not necessarily as good, being 353 vs 359, it's still a welcome addition.

Hopefully before the patch even drops, hate it when they do that.

I was hoping if we all kept quiet about this, maybe it would go through.

Good thing they don't read these forums.

honestly if they knew about that they shouldn't have released it that way. I understand why they altered others later becuase they did not forsee the problem. But now that the cat is out of the bag and they release an item like that then its their bad not ours.

No...NO...NONONO.

We do not want this to go through. Enh should not be using Spellpower weapons. I hope this is fixed before patch goes live.

I've said it before - We have a retarded itemization team.

I hate using a spellpower MH myself, and for the longest was using agi/agi, but I saw so much talk about how much a SP MH did so much dps. I did the switch after the nuke occurred in 4.0.6 and noticed a huge DPS boost using WF/FT. Yea it sucks but if I can contribute better DPS and better off-heals when necessary. I'm going to do it.

I hope that blizzard just makes all of enhancement's abilities based off attack power instead of 95% of them being SP based. Which would wipe out the spellpower MH issue in one go. we know they can do it since they just did it with Flametongue.

Blizzard really doesn't learn their lesson it seems.

Wow... just... wow... At this rate, I would not be surprised if they make a super awesome caster 1H weapon with 2.80 speed in the next tier :|

I got the original Thekal's Blessing set on this hunter back in the day(and wear them now). I farmed zg before they closed it on my enhance shaman to get the set because I like them that much. I will definitely be farming the new ZG on my enhance shaman for the new set.

As for the claws of agony/claws of torment- the str on the offhand is fine- just look at it as if it has "AP" instead of "strength." In BC or wrath, you would never pass up an item with those stats- many pieces had AP + Crit instead of agi. I just think they are ugly and don't want to spend that much gold on a character I don't play as much as I used to.

OMG... I didn't even realize it wasn't a MH caster weapon... Since seeing it was a caster weapon I automatically though MH... Dual Wielding caster weapons... I know they are going to fix that... cause if they don't... just bad badness.

I won't say I like doing it, but I am competitive and I'll do whatever it takes to do as much DPS as possible.

Plus, like someone else has said, the spellpower does contribute nicely to the times when healing rain and healing stream totem contribute a lot.

If this is not fixed we would definitely have to sim it to see if its worth dual wielding or not. Considering that LL is based off weapon damage versus AP. If the lose in DPS from using LL is more then made up for by the boost in the damage of basically every other attack we have then dual wielding SP weapons here we come. Well at least we didn't have this weapon before the nerf to FT/FT otherwise that would have definitely been a HUGE boost to that enh set up.

Go to mmo-champion yourselves, there are two enh fist weps listed there. Besides ft doesnt scale from SP for us anymore


Just means that FT/FT won't be awesome.

However Nearly every other ability we have scales with spell power, to the point where using Torturer's Mercy with WF/FT is a viable option to Normal mode raiding.

These weapons (Napkin and off the top of my head Math) would make it a viable option to Heroic raiding weapons...Do. Not. Want. What would be even better is if Blizzard fixed it once and for awhile so we couldn't use SP weapons as viable dps options.
