With 4.1 offering new weapon choices, my hunter has equipped a 353 dagger and a 353 fist weapon over his 346 two handed, but my dilemma is there only seems to be an enchant choice of 26 agi available (Exceptional Agility) for each weapon which is way lower than the 130 agi enchant for the two handed. I've tried a search on enchants for weapon enchants for weapons not used in melee and am just doing a reality check to see if I've missed something. If, in the coming days, I can pick up a 353 two handed weapon, this will be remedied but in the mean time, is there something better than the Exceptional Agility enchants that I've missed?
Getting archangel without atonement means to keep your stack up and use Archangel on CD you will have to smite/HF 6 times per 30s (5 to get the stack 1 to refresh the duration). So 6x1.5s => 9s per 30s where you won't be healing which doesn't seem to warrant the 15% increase during 18s of those 30 frame.
If we assume there are fights that allow to not heal during 9s without losing any hps at all every 30s then it might work but even in normal modes i hardly find myself without someone to heal for a GCD or 2 so i doubt i would find the way to just linger for 7.5-9s
Evangelism stacks last for a long time (20 seconds) so I'm confused by the assertion that it's necessary to refresh that duration. You could literally Holy Fire only 3 times on cooldown and those stacks of evangelism would be up by the time your Archangel came off cooldown. If you time appropriately you need 4 holy fire and 1 smite every 30 seconds, or 5 holy fires every 40 seconds. That's a little over 5 GCDs or ~7-8 seconds depending on your haste.
Granted that either way, using Archangel without Atonement is at the very least a very situational thing to be doing.
Does anyone else feel like the the upcoming nurf to frost in 4.2 seem half baked? I put together a graph of overall DPS, removing frost mages/sub rogues for obvious reasons, and Frost DK's seem to be in a good spot. We're right in the middle of Overall DPS parses as seen here: DPS Bot - Overall DPS 25H - RaidBots - Web Tools for WoW Nerds
It reminds me of the kneejerk Unholy Might nurf that Blizz is finally going to correct in 4.2. I really hope the GMs reconsider this frost nurf before pushing it live.
It seems pretty balanced that warriors deal ~5k more dps than we do. If no Dk buff hits, every Dk in a top guild has to reroll a warlock/hunter/warrior or spend the time sitting next to the instance portal.
I really cant figure out why protection and dps warriors got a raid cd, while our rez can also be done by warlocks/druids (not to mention the battlerez glyph), and is still caped to three rezes per fight.
There has a lot of work to be done till the release of 4.2.

I have a question about applying rupture as an assassination rogue. In the beginning I open up with a garrote and use the 1 CP I get from it into a rupture and if I get another one I spend that into SnD, if not I get the 2-3 CP with one mutilate and use it on SnD. However, I've been applying rupture as either 1CP or 2-3 CP instead of a full 5 CP rupture. I'm kind of confused whether I am doing it right, or am I supposed to use a 5CP rupture at all times after the opening?
I'd also appreciate if someone could list how they open on a fight and how they would continue from there.
To be honest I cant see it going throu, and I mean the holy Shield change, if it does make it to live, blizzard has no idea what they're doing. Back in beta i think Holy Shield was changed from 15% block chance to 10% value and mastery nerfed to make up for this dmg blocked buff (that was blue post from Ghostcrawler i think, however i dont know how to find it), now they nerfed Holy Shield to what it was back on beta just 10% less and leaving weakened mastery? Seriously? If this goes live we're getting hit by nerf hammer hard.
