View Full Version : + weapon dmg vs. AP

11-03-2007, 11:42 AM
I have http://www.wowhead.com/?item=24114 and http://www.wowhead.com/?item=32654 which give me a toaal of +12 weapon dmg.

I know that + weapon dmg is best when using fast weapons.

For weapons i have http://www.wowhead.com/?item=28768 + http://www.wowhead.com/?item=29346 which is 1.8 and 1.4 speed respectively.

However i was wondering if it is better with my current gear to use those + dmg items or to use the neck and trinket I have been using?

worgen claw necklace http://www.wowhead.com/?item=28509 and hourglass of the unraveller http://www.wowhead.com/?item=28034

If 14 AP is 1 dps then wouldn't +12 weapon dmg on a my weapons be approximately equal to something like + 15 dps or 210 equivalent AP? However the equivalent AP would not have any effect on bloodthirst. At which ratio does equivalent AP surpass AP? Does it all scale the same with haste? What buffs would tip this ratio to make weapon dmg more or less valuable?

Use the worgen claw and Unraveller and get a new mainhand. Should never main hand a dagger.

/agree with Meeks. Unless your just spamming Bloodthrist and Heroic Strike (which for me would be way too much aggro) A slower MH weapon is perferred (mainly cause of Flurry mech.)

I tried a build like this way back when pre-BC. Fast weapons (Same speed 1.6-Ilbis and a dagger from Naxx I can't remember the name to :P) tons of +weapon dam (enchants, ring, etc). And the aggro was way to much to even measure its potential in raids. All I did was spam BT/HS in a /cast BT, /cast HS macro. It was mindless and silly :P, but I try everything that comes to my mind in the fury realm, just to see where it goes :)
