But yes, do tell me more about this "magical thing called reforging" ;-)

Either way you look at it we will always have to reforge to the hit/exp cap no matter if it is reforging into or out of it, there is no real markable difference as long as you hit the cap and have the stats reforged so what really, is the complaint there?
That's why reforging is so good, you dont need to worry about what is on gear because we will almost always be overly accommodated for stats
As a warrior if you had certain gear combinations in t14 you would be stuck over expertise cap even when reforging completely out of expertise, so having a massive chunk of expertise on a trinket is not necessarily going to all be useable. The problem only really affected TG warriors using at least one starshatter heroic and vizier heroic belt, but bigger item budgets means other classes may land in the same situation in t15.
It's easy to reforge to the hit or expertise cap if you're under.
Right now a lot of us are reforging out of hit and still over the cap, there is no solution to this.
I'm using the garalon neck instead of the protectors one just to drop hit, I'm still over 8%.
and to Mael, I beg to say you are reforging wrong if you are constantly sitting that high up on it, maybe in 5.2 we might hit this problem but with current gear sorry but I havn't seen this problem on my toon or any of our other melee plate dps.
Dw frost dks are over the hit cap in bis gear.
Reforging will not fix this as our bis gear has too much hit to be able to reforge back down to the cap.
T15 normal gear has a higher item level than double upgraded t14 heroic gear.
You can literally get all of the hit you need from two pieces of normal mode gear in t15 if one of them is a trinket.

I noticed all the exp and hit on the tier pieces. That's why as an orc, I will not mind at all if this sword drop for me in the first couple of weeks.
And stupid happy if the upgraded version dropped, what are they called again, thunderforged?
That sword is a trash drop so the hc version certainly won't exist and so therefore has no chance of it being thundeforged, also come to think of it almost every 2h since cata has gotten crit on it and only 1 spec uses it. Guess 2h's are mostly designed for warrs. On the bright side at least our bis wep is not from the final boss

yeah, 2Hs all having crit on it is honestly getting old.
Akirus and the Shannox axe were the only exceptions, and weren't the best weapons in their tier anyhow (Sulfuras had a better ilvl, Ashkandi was 3.8 while Akirus was 3.6). Ashkandi, Sulfuras, Zoid, Yor'sahj axe and Warmaster mace, Starshatter, Shin'ka, and now all the 5.2 weapons. All of them have fucking crit, and those who don't are not boss drops and thus won't have any heroic version..
It's just like in T13, when they initially designed our supposedly "best" set they just copy pasted from warriors and gave us crit everywhere, and we had to QQ to get proper stats.
I just hope one day they'll fix this bias =x
