View Full Version : Human get more expertise from axe

In case this slipped by anyone, The Brutalizer now gives me more expertise than The Unbreakable Will. I ended up with 3 more expertise rating equipping the axe. Before the patch they were dead even. So I opted for the armor of the sword.

Human racial expertise from Swords and Maces was lowered from 5 to 3. Now you actually have to make a choice if you want the extra threat or extra armor. Before, sword was equal or better in all ways.

Yes, I use sword for miti, and axe for threat :)

Keep in mind that in terms of threat Mallet of the Tides (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=30058) remains superior to The Brutalizer (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=32254) for humans, although by a very small margin now.

The mallet is slower, has less expertise(even before the change from 5 to 3 it was still less), has less dps and less defense rating. How was it any superior for threat gen?

No...nevermind. Ratings can go die in a fire >.>
