I'm currently MS Blood, using Starshatter as my weapon.
The other day I looted raid finder Shin'Ka from Sha.
The Starshatter has been upgraded to ilvl 497, but since I looted Shin'ka after 5.1 it remains at ilvl 483.
My OS is also Frost.
These are the reforges etc for Starshatter -
- Upgraded twice to 497
- Swordshattering Enchant
- Crit reforged to Mastery
With these factors, I want to know what weapon suits what spec best.
I figured that Starshatter easily beats Shin'ka as a DPS weapon, but that would mean I'd lose my Swordshattering runeforge and I'd be losing the 362 mastery from the reforge if I were to reforge it as a Frost weapon.
Shin'ka would presumably be a better tank weapon because it has 723 mastery, but this is at a cost of a bit over 200 stamina and the 2000 weapon damage.
The weapon damage loss gives me the feeling that it's far worse of a DPS weapon.
If this were 5.1, I'd happily upgrade Shin'ka fully and run with that and have Starshatter as an OS weapon, but it remains at a rather low ilvl.
Currently I'm using Starshatter with tanking reforges, enchants etc as both a MS weapon and OS weapon. Once I have the time I'll see if I can test my DPS, but I'm not at my PC right now so I can't do that easily. So, for now, some input on the situation would be much appreciated
I'll also mention that I have my 500 strength gem handy. I won't be running ToES normal/HC again since I simply do not have the time to attend that raid as well as my guilds ToT raids, so saving it for normal/HC Shin'Ka just isn't an option.
