I was in a similar situation post-3.0. I have been 70 a while, but went Prot at 44 and stayed that way. I decided to analyze the coolness factor of TG, and was badly disappointed. With my minimal hit rating of about 170, 20ish % crit, and AP around 1600 unbuffed, it was dismal. I fooled around with it running dailies and doing HH runs for a couple days then gave it up. I respecced to Ciderhelm's 53/8/0 Arms spec and ran with it. Currently, using Legionfoe as well, I am hitting around 800-900 DPS on garbage mobs and target dummies. Axe spec of course increased my crit rate to around 25% and some gear changes pushed it up to 28% currently. I plan ot hit some target dummies tonight, smooth out some hotkey positions and try to get SCT working for SD and OP notifications to be more apparent. Should break 1000 dps easily, which is more than I ever did with Blazefury and S1 mace in my brief sting of DW fury. In addition, this Arms spec is FUN! Not spamming 1 key constantly, not ducking my head, looking around ot see if anyone notices I am acting like a rogue, just busting balls and having fun!
