    Enhancement shaman and weapon damage

    How much is weapon damage worth compared to other stats? I've received a weapon that is 5 lvls higher, however I lose a socket which has my agility gem. The stats on the new weapon aren't any better for my talents, running primal primer. I can't actually find any info on this, any help would be good. Thank you.

    Sockets are worth roughly 10-15 I'll depending on the slot.

    I can't give you an exact value without knowing your toon, but in general weapon dps will be king for ENH over other stats. For example, here are stat weights for two of my ENH shaman that are at different gear levels, but both 120.

    Shaman A:
    Weapon DPS: 8.81
    Off Hand Weapon DPS: 3.12
    Haste: 2.83
    Mastery: 2.49
    Critical Strike: 2.37
    Versatility: 2.25
    Agility: 2.12

    Shaman B:
    Weapon DPS: 7.46
    Off Hand Weapon DPS: 2.61
    Agility: 1.80
    Haste: 1.54
    Mastery: 1.49
    Versatility: 1.42
    Critical Strike: 1.41

    Okay, I've simmed it and the weapon is a downgrade. Thanks all.
