ive gone back and forth between 17/44 and 33/28 with similar weapon grade choices (S1 weapons) and because of my 5v5 team make up and my raid make up (mainly phys dps - rog, enhanc shammy, hunter, feral druid) I feel that the 33/28, while not bring my highest DPS, contributes overall more DPS (cause of the 4% increase to everyone else).
My question is this - what do you guys find to be a better spec DPS wise for PvE - Mace or Sword? My thoughts on it were this
Sword - extra attacks make for extra DPS, and thats nice, but swords have the lowest top dmg (since they are moderately fast, compared to maces), and therefore my MS and Deep Wounds Dmg is a lot lower then with a mace.
Mace - Super high MS and Deep Wounds dmg (esp on MS crit), and 7 extra rage is nice to help with rage gen when in fights - but mace stun almost useless in all raid situations (no use on bosses, and not gonna make that much of a difference on trash) - so is it really worth it?
Any help/ideas/thoughts/etc are greatly appreciated!
Sword spec is infinitely better than mace spec for PvE.
By the way, Deep Wounds are the same damage regardless of the size of the crit. A crit with Hamstring gives the same Deep Wounds damage as a crit with MS if you use the same weapon; it's a percentage of weapon damage.
