    Always put a stronger weapon in the main hand.

    It's NEVER been better, where do people get this bullshit information and believe it's fact? Main hand is ALWAYS more damage, regardless of Lava Lash, Higher Stormstrikes, Windfury damage and Auto attacks is always superior.

    I remember seeing just about every Enhancement Shaman putting their better weapon in their OH during Cataclysm. I was confused as to why, but they all said it was better due to Lava Lash. Probably not the case now, but was it true back then?

    No they were just bad.

    ...or they were using a Spell Power Weapon.

    Yeah, what was going on back then was this: they werent placing their "better" weapon on their off hand, they were placing a slow caster main hand with tons of spell power on their main hand and the "norma" agility weapon we were supposed to weild on off hand.

    Those were the days of SP main hands and hard casting lava burst. I never did that though, the gain was just a few hundred dps higher and I´ve never been a progression raider plus Blizzard pretty much said it was going to nerf it some where down the line.

    So thats the reason some shamans placed the "better" weapon on off hand. Now, if you were going for 2 slow agility weapons then it has always been: weapon with highest dmg on main hand regardless of stats. Case in point, if you have a LFR sha touched weapon with legendary gem and a MSV normal mode, place the LFR one on off hand regardless of the fact that it has more stats.

    That's how I remembered it as well. If you we're doing a SP main hand, you'd put your highest damage weapon in your off. Otherwise, main hand is always the priority.

    I think going back, regardless of using a caster weapon, the MH/OH questions arose with having weapons of different speeds. In some situations you had to balance out weapon speed and damage to figure out which went in what slot potentially putting a higher dps weapon in the OH.

    and all those caster weapon users were doing it wrong. It's not how Blizzard wanted the class to play, so don't play like it.

    Superior Weapon goes in the Main hand. Simple as that.

    Case Closed.
