Can someone do some math for me?

Paladin
just got LFR axe. I had MV normal mode sword.

Shin'ka, Execution of Dominion
2/2 upgrade
500 str gem

vs

Starshatter
2/2 upgrade
Starshatter is better. The boost you get from the 500 str gem is only worth an extra 70 points of damage per second. The Starshatter has 227.7 more to start.
Math's been done; nStarshatter.

I think your math is a tad off sir.
The math is accurate - 500 Str is indeed ~70 weapon DPS (not to be confused with the total DPS you actually deal). But it's incomplete: the Strength also boosts our spells, while actual weapon DPS does not.

The two weapons are closer together than one might think, but Starshatter does indeed win. It doesn't help that Shin'ka has the worst possible pair of secondary stats for Ret.
