I recently picked up a mace to replace my sword expecting to see an all around improvement. Much to my surprise I found that my crit chance dropped ~2%, despite the fact that the mace has 5 more AGI on it. the two items in question are: http://www.wowhead.com/?compare=15249.683;15260.694.

Why is this? I asked a couple of guildys and they couldn't explain it.

Just in case it's relevant, here's my armory: http://www.wowhead.com/?profile=us.the-scryers.galidrel

your skill in swords is probably not maxed or is at least lower than your skill in maces, until you are maxed, the tooltip shows a decrease in crit.

Swapped the order, Agg. =)

5 agility will be a *very* small gain in crit, but weapon skill is a much larger contributor. Perhaps you've already noticed that you were low on skill when you went to use it? Check back once it has caught up and you'll find you gained some small measure of crit.
