You can call it a design flaw. That's fine, and I believe that's the best way to put it. However, Blizz has already addressed the early xpack issues to some degree with the implementation of a static 30% crit rating to BT (and I've mentioned in another thread why I think it should be higher). And yes, fury currently feels all of the things you mentioned if badly geared, which is why everyone on these forums suggest people to go arms until they're better geared. That might not be the most appealing or elegant solution, but that's what we're stuck with. But then again, there are several specs that are pretty horrible to play at lower ilvls, like boomkin (no crit and low haste, 2+ seconds starfire casts + no starsurge procs.. yay) or any rogue spec (shitty energy regen).
