Deep wounds would likely fall off the mob more often with a slower weapon as there would be less hits that might crit and refresh it.
Heroic Strike will still be spammed almost all the time in 3.2 (More in truth given the rage on dodge/parry/block) so a faster weapon is still of alot of value here.
The devastate change has two parts the base damage it does is increased to 60% of weapon damage insted of 50%, also the added damage each rank of devastate does per sunder has been increased by 100%. At rank 5 the added damage per sunder was 101 so now it'll be 202.
Well this is a nice buff only the extra 10% weapon damage would favor a slower weapon and that does not outweigh the extra Heroic Stike's from a fast weapon.
The change I can see the Devastate buff having is in the priority of Devastate against Conc Blow or Shockwave against bosses I am not sure how Devastate will now stack up against those two. (Given the 5 sunders are up already)
