LFR Elegion vs Ook's Hozen Slicer

So I picked up LFR Elegion today, and am currently using the Hozen Slicer. I was wondering if the stats gained from Elegion make up for the lost 1% expertise from the Human racial?

It seems the Elegion's expertise is roughly 0.78% expertise, which is slightly less than Ook's Hozen Slicer. You also lose the mastery from Ook's Hozen Slicer (but can reforge either hit for 121 mastery (or other stat) or expertise (which would defeat your question, kind of?) for 107 mastery (or other stat)).

You'll gain more out of the DPS increase, strength bonus, slightly more survivability with more stamina, and gain a pretty good increase in hit, while not losing much expertise, and losing all of your Slicer's mastery. Which, since you now have hit on your sword, you can reforge something else away from hit (or not to hit, and to something else).

Hm, I guess I can just try it out and see how things go. I really like how Elegion looks as well, would have been rather sad to have it wasted.

It's a viable tank weapon until you get the one off of Ambershaper or Sha of Fear. Or the heroic version.

I could be wrong, but it's basically, from best to worst:

H. Kilrak, Jaws of Terror > H. Scimitar of Seven Stars > H. Elegion, the Fanged Crescent > Kilrak, Jaws of Terror > Scimitar of Seven Stars > Elegion, the Fanged Crescent > LFR Kilrak, Jaws of Terror > LFR Scimitar of Seven Stars > LFR Elegion, the Fanged Crescent > Inelava, Spirit of Inebriation > H. Ook's Hozen Slicer > Ook's Hozen Slicer.

Wow, that was longer than I thought... should've just popped in item #'s. >.>
