    Quel Delar Lens of the Mind

    With 22 agility or Mongoose or even blade ward would it be viable to utilize as a tanking weapon. The curiosity stems from the huge crit strike and spell power bonus as well as the slower swing time. Quel Delar Lens of the Mind Equipped my dps actually goes up and on the test dummy auto attack with seal and with full rotation I'm seeing about a 350-500 boost in dps. I'm not certain as to this is in the increase of crits or if the spell power is in effect boosting certain spells adding to the holy damage. Just a thought and I figured I'd ask the pro's for their thoughts and speculations.
    Thanks in advance.

    That's odd, since the weapon dps is so much lower than any comparable tanking sword (even a few tiers back).

    At a guess I'd say it's because Lens of the Mind roughly doubles your spell power. And if SP didn't matter for dps then pallies wouldn't have those talents to get it in Prot/Ret.

    But I'll also let the pros show the math here =p.

    To further clarify and for some help on the math hopefully:
    Peacekeeper Blade 163 DPS/ Quel Delar 118 DPS
    31 Str/ 59 Int
    69 Stam/ 59 Stam
    Enchant BladeWard/ Enchant +63 Spellpower
    Dodge 29/ Spell Power 657
    Parry 23/ Crit 54
    Expertise 21 & +4 Expertise Socket Bonus/ Haste 49

    Paperdoll Melee Stats

    Dam 577-744 Speed 1.5/ Dam 614-909 Speed 2.06
    Power 3158 Hit 215/ Power 2820 Hit 195
    Crit 16.99 Expertise 27/ Crit 18.17 Expertise 24

    Auto Attack with seal & BoS on Dummy/ Auto Attack with Seal & BoS on Dummy
    510 on a 10 minute set/ 590 on a 10 minute set
    Full Rotation 1.5 minutes/ Full Rotation 1.5 Minutes
    1930 Dps/ 2490 Dps

    Rotation on Grandmaster Test Dummy for both
    Started both with Hand of reckoning (no crit on either) and straight into 969 rotation with consecrate and HS

    Sorry bout the wall o text but I'm intrigued due to at first being totally disgusted and frustrated that Quel Delar wasn't a viable tank sword for pali's or warriors but sweet for Drooids and Dk's. They even have a mace version for drooid tanks.

    Thanks again
