Did you want to go to that spec because you like it, or because you noticed that you can wield 2h, and so make your GS higher? I mean, with people asking for ridiculous high GS now to run a 10m ICC, I'm thinking about going fury as a dps offspec too

Well, when it comes to the fact that my work hours are random, and so I can't stick to a specific schedule for guild runs, I have no choice, if I want to raid, but to go to PuG. What do PuG generally ask? Ridiculously high GS

btw, hate to raid on your parade here but I'm pretty sure GS calculates a 2hander twice if you're only wielding 1 2hander. i.e. your GS as arms and fury in the identical gear setup would be the same both times.

With the current gear available fury is out performing arms for DPS, especially in ICC.

It does do some sort of calculation along this line. /thread

GS averages out the score for each 2 handed weapon. So if you have a 264 main hand and a 245 off hand, you'd get a GS equivalent of having a 251 weapon overall. I believe wow-heroes also works under a similar premise.

This is correct on both counts.

The thread started complaining about dual 2h counting as their full value for GS. Discussing the mechanics of how gear score is calculated to disprove the inaccurate assumption of the OP is in line with the thread, even if it is by proving the OP's assumption inaccurate.
