Atm I'm wondering about the BiS list. It always said Scimitar and Sha HC weapon for weapons ofc because of the extra socket provided by the Scimitar. Now there's the possibility of buying another prismatic socket for Sha weapons and you're able to use two of them while dual wielding two Sha weapons.
So what do you guys think? Is this intended or not?
I'm currently using one Scimitar and got my Kilrak just 2 days ago and now i saw that I'm able to use two prismatic sockets on two different Kilraks at the same time. That'd mean that 2x Kilrak> 1x Scimitar/1x Kilrak. I haven't found anything on the official forums and i can't post there, dunno why, but is this intended?
Just upgraded the Scimitar for the 2nd time before i got the Kilrak just to realize that it's no longer BiS and i've wasted almost like two weeks for "nothing"? ( especially with Ghostcrawler saying that the NPC will be removed with 5.2)
I forget which thread I saw it in, but another thing to note is that the Sha weapon's stats are optimized as if there is no socket, so when you upgrade the weapons you will actually get more str from the ilevel upgrade than Scimitar gets.
But in the end, if you already have Kilrak heroic and Scimitar heroic both upgraded, it's possible you'll get more of a DPS gain by keeping your current weapon setup and upgrading a different piece of gear +8 ilevels rather than upgrading another kilrak heroic weapon to replace the Scimitar heroic. It would require math or sims to verify that though.
