But i ran the sims for you, Atraxis is worse EVEN with the extra gem socketed to the max, not socketing it, or socketing with a worse gem is only going to push your DPS with it further behind your DPS with LFR gurth as your offhand instead. LFR gurth is just a plain better off hand than any normal mode weapon.
The thing is Atraxis isn't necessarily worse. I've done multiple Sims on toons with out changing gear and gotten a 100 dps swing. One thing to consider is situationally when you'd prefer to be at the mercy of RNG (as was previously mentioned). In multitarget situations (such as skittles) when WW will give an additional chance to proc gurth has a definite advantage. Single target though, I still prefer steady damage over RNG.
And I appreciate that man, other than that we were just having a discussion. Thank you very much for taking the time to do that.
