I don't understand how people are saying that a Heroic Starshatter is better than a normal Shin'ka, Execution of Dominion. The stats of the Crystallized Terror way exceed the Starshatter that doesn't have a socket. Expertise at the high end gear is really not needed rendering the expertise on the Starshatter useless, especially if you are an Orc. The mastery is much more beneficial even though it is one of our lower stats. Valor upgrades don't really make much difference seeing how the scaling doesn't change. +500 strength is still invaluable. Not only this but when you get the second Legendary gem, Refined Crystallized Terror you will then just have wasted 1500 valor upgrading your Starshatter.
You come here to open a new thread about something that have been discussed in a lot of others threads, and still lack on understand what have been discussed before?
It's not based on the primary or even secondary stats that makes the sword better than the axe, it's only the weapon dmg, where Starshatter have higher value, and on stats weight weapon dmg is better than strenght, or even if you consider all the others stats, the sword will be higher than the axe.
Depends on what you get. In depth math use Italiandk post, or just do a quick math depending on your stat. I did with mine and just accounting for strength and weapon DPS for my current gear, Starshatter (hc) comes about 1350 DPS better, but since I already have the axe and I am orc I get to save that 340 expertise into haste and I already upgraded it using VP.
So if you have both use Starshatter (hc) and try to upgrade it as soon as possible to 2/2 or if you have the axe just upgrade it as it is now, since your dps boost will matter until you get the Starshatter.
Hold on a Tik. I just got the H star shatter tonight and so i googled this very subject only to find this thread and one oddly similar to it on batnet. unfortuantly i am unable to post a link to it.

Wouldn't be you would it? started the exact same thread? question is which one is the Copy Pasta? and which the original? Seems you got a similar response tho on both forums. LuLZ!!!
How QuEEr??? is this guy fer serious here. sorry just felt that needed to be pointed out.
Starshatter HC upgraded has ALOT more Weapon dmg and dps which is more value then stre.
I loled and you made my day.
Don't post just to be mean. He made one of the best points in this thread. Upgrading is linear. An upgraded starshatter will have the same jump from normal -> upgraded as an upgraded shinka would have normal -> upgraded because its an increase in iLvl, which is just an increase in available stat budget. It just so happens that starshatter was better in the first place, as thoroughly discussed.
