    Not sure which one to use.

    Greetings,

    Recently I got a new 2 hander (ilvl 516) which is the one I currently have. You can look at my armory on my sig to look at it.

    Now, this sword has more Weapon Damage than an LFR Council Sword which is the one I was using BUT has 2 less slots (cant socket it with the legendary gem slot afaik) which I had socketed with 320's haste gem. My haste went from 28.20~ to a 26.01%. Tonight I will be raiding and hoping for a reg or TF sword but in the meantime, which one should I use?

    Thanks a lot for the help!

    The 516. If you get unlucky with weapons, drop the 500 valor to upgrade it. Weapon damage is always the most important.

    I'd say go with Zerat if you can somehow utilize that hit.


    Actually 516 is quite better and you can make it 524 for extra goodness.

    Should look more into these things before typing out possibly wrong info out of laziness.

    Oh, does the 516 have shit weapon speed? Figured it was 3.6 like 95% of weapons. That's lame.

    I've seen Zerat drop like 5 times. It just isn't my god damn luck. Like I said, if I don't get one reg or TF tonight, I'm dropping it.

    It was hearsay crap, it's 3.5, checking it out it ain't bad and should be cleanly ahead of Zerat.

    Just an update for ya'll: Zerat TF dropped and I won it. Upgraded it and socketed it ASAP and that upped my DPS beyond belief!

    Went from 5-6th dps to #2 on tortos RIGHT below or bats pally tank.
