    BoA iLvl 450 Pandaria weapons - No agi?

    So, I can't help but notice that there was a 1h str dps weapon in Townlong (to me it's a dps weapon, it doesn't have tank stats on it), then for some ungoshly reason Blizzard added ANOTHER 450 str dps weapon in the Mantid archaology...

    Yet there is still no 1h (not including daggers) agi weapons for shamans, monks, or Combat rogues.

    >.>

    Am I just being a whinging bugger, or is this annoying anyone else?

    Also, Rogue's and Shaman's can't make much use out of a 2h...

    I have one of all of the "treasures" weapons and several of most of them except for the two new Arch rares.

    If you have Archaeology, the staff should be pretty quick to solve. It's a "rare" in color only. It's not in the least like farming Zinrokh or Vial. However, arch pre-flying in Pandaria is just ultra painful (I thought it was anyway). The staff can be upgraded (well, again some day) and then becomes a stupidly OP 471 weapon that a level 85 melee can use and is BiS for all level 85 melee that can wield it except for that BMAH epic. It really doesn't matter whether it has tank stats or DPS stats or whatever on it. The reason you would use it is the huge weapon damage.

    "Healing staff"? The Dissector's Staff is just fine thank you.

    Most people here should know that if you are leveling a physical DPS or tank, the most important weapon stat is damage/DPS. You can ignore everything else unless you are comparing two weapons with the same DPS. If, for example, you are a level 86 rogue it doesn't matter in the slightest whether your one hander has agility or strength on it unless you are choosing between two weapons with the same DPS.

    You can't get enough tank stats on a weapon to make a real difference when leveling, and they aren't necessary anyway.

    Well, it's not a weapon but at least you can get a 450 agi trinket. I might be wrong, but I don't think there's any other BoA trinket with this ilvl.

    It's weird. Two of the trinkets are BoP, while the +Int necklace is bind to account and the pet trinket is also bind to account.

    Not really sure what the reasoning there was. But then again I have two of the purple strength maces that drop from the rare in Jade Forest, one on my rogue and one on my warlock. Not sure why those are BoP while some of the other purple gear that drops from rares is BoE.

    There are several BoE melee trinkets suitable for leveling 85-90 although they will cost a few k.

    There is a 1h 450 dagger in Dread Wastes; it's called Wind-Reaver's Dagger of Quick Strikes.

    It's a rare in the zone but my rogue does have it.

    As the previous poster said, there IS an AGI dagger, it's in Dread Wastes.

    I have two of them on my rogue, and they made leveling a complete joke.

    Just take the townlong weapon, it's double itemized on str and that is still 1AP for agi classes, if you're enhance that fire proc even scales with mastery.
    It's only levelling btw, not min max raiding. Weapon damage is most important anyway. Monks can use the poleaxe from archy btw.

    I have two of them. Took a long time to get them even on my medium-pop server. They worked great for my rogue and ... well ... I guess that's it until I can mail them to another realm.

    The Arch sword would be the best option, at 463 and usable at 85. It doesn't take long to get (I dug it up along with the gun in about 2 hours tonight). In fact, with the respawn time on the Klaxxi weapons being days and people still farming them, the Arch sword would be the way to go if you're in a hurry. It could take weeks to get two 450 swords if people are camping them.

    The Klaxxi Arch sword is also a strength weapon, but the primary stat really isn't important where a melee weapon is concerned, not during leveling.

    He asked for non daggers.

    But honestly, there's a 1h mace that's ilvl420 something that drops quite often and is usually the cheapest Pandaria blue weapon on the AH.
