BiS wep? 2/2 hc sha staff vs 2/2 hc sha sword + 0/2 hc OH
So, I just did some soft calculations with my personal stat values, and I came to the conclusion that the upgraded staff is slightly above the sword (barely 50 dps, but still) and the OH, as long as the OH is not upgraded. Is this an oversight by the top raiders or am I missing something? The OH shouldn't be upgraded anyway if you got other BiS items to upgrade cause of it's low stats and pretty crappy excessive crit. I might've missed something here, and yes I calculated in the OH enchant and the full hit from OH as haste/mastery ( as you reforge away all excessive hit obv.).
They are about the same, I did some napkin math a while ago about this. It's a small amount of intel vs small amount of secondary stats. The fact that you can upgrade the offhand (or get a 522 offhand next tier) is what makes the sword better.
Unless you're a human or gnome, then the sword is waaaaay better than the staff, possibly even with a crafted offhand (haven't calculated, just guessing)
Kinda unnecessary necro, and how does that make any sense? Humans get benefit from swords so, how come the staff would be more viable for them? It's most likely the only ones that the sword would be better for. And I'm talking BiS now, not crafted offhands/normal/LFR/whatever.
Yes even with the 509 offhand the staff is stronger, just wanted to confirm it.
