spear of xuen compared to any 440-450 ilvl strength 2hander is godlike ... but less powerful than it's strength counterparts that drop from the heroics . Good luck with the drops !
when ill hit 3500 Cp im going to get the PVP epic Sword and Use it as i always do , since blizzard changed the concept of the PVP weapon and make it viable for raiding and questing some how what i see ill lose Expertise for PVP resillience and mastery for Crit even though i have the 463 heroic swords but the pvp epic sword will give me STR and Dmg ( and look nice ) and i still have the Agility trinket , when it proc MY Cs is down to 3,60 sec and Exco to 12,70 , and judgment to 4,20 thats Really something good , but i still have it coz the other trinkets didnt drop yet

So, I found one of these before I'd hit 90 and looked at it, said "What the hell?", and equipped; my damage actually dropped. Lack of strength is a big deal, since you're losing a ton of attack power - and remember, folks, even Exorcism is affected by AP. So just mail it over to your monks or druids and move on.
Considering that secondary stats are now worth more than they were, I don't see the BoA polearm being that bad until you can get the 450 2h from AoA or even a 463. I'm actually gonna use it on my Warrior now you've made me think about it ;p

sigh , the bad thing Archeology aint good for leveling it right now , missed the zynrokh
At 90, you never want to be using the Spear. For leveling from 85-90, however, enchant that bad boy with a Windsong or Fallen Crusader on your DK alt and enjoy the two-shotting.
