So I have a 489 Starshatter and a 483 Shin'ka, Execution of Dominion. I just got my legendary +500 strength gem. What is better for Frost DPS. The Starshatter cause it has more weapon damage or the LFR weapon with the legendary gem?
Stick with the Starshatter for now and save the gem for when you get the normal version of the axe.
Starshatter rules out as better for a few reasons -
- Better overall stats (inc weapon damage)
- Better itemization (Axe has Mastery on it, SS Crit/Exp)
- Its a yellow space banana, it wins by default.
Even with the gem on it you lose more valuable stats in lue of a more avoidable one.
Red space banana > normal shin'ka for 2h.
