Hi TS.

So doing lfr last night i landed myself one of theses


Now due to the fact it has no secondary stat bonuses are these really viable for fury as I would have to do some major reforging to get back expertise to 26 if i had 2 of these babies. Wanted to ask b4 i spend my hard earned on Landslides etc.

Currently using http://www.wowhead.com/item=71780 & http://www.wowhead.com/item=72844

I am Prott main spec but due to the faceroll 1st few bosses only needing 1 tank i do fury a fair bit as we are currently only on Ship fight at the mo.

The only thing better than Gurthalek is a better version of Gurthalek.

You THINK there's no dps stats, then you realize strength is best...

I've seen this thing tick for a good 11K every 2-3 seconds. o.O

TMG said in another thread here that if you want to use two of these they should be different item levels. Apparently, same item level=same spell id on the proc and doesn't work. Different item levels=different spell id and no conflict.

I recently got my second Gurthalak (we've had a few fellow TG Warriors in the guild) and started dual-wielding them. I haven't tested the performance statistically but was pretty underwhelmed when my raid dps dropped each of our past two nights. I reforged to the standard priorities. The only thing I can come up with is that the OH weapon doesn't proc (which provides quite a bit of the weapon's utility).

Has anyone experienced this dps loss or, in the alternative, confirmed both the MH and OH proc? I've seen inconsistent posts elsewhere and would appreciate a tankspot user's input. Thanks.
According to this post (http://www.tankspot.com/showthread.php?72537-The-Cataclysmic-fury-Warrior-Guide&p=478068#post478068), if you are using two Gurthalak with the same ilvl, only one of them will proc

Yup I'm now using a 403/390 combo and regularly get 3-4 tentacles up at the same time. On a long boss fight this can be 2mill+ damage from the ticks. Just transmog then so the colours match^^
