Without evidence to support your claims this reads a lot like a waterfall of tears.

Right, in a BIG way. I've had 2 reg Gurth's for weeks now and have been trying hours on dummies and even a full raid night... all to no avail. I've seen 3 tent's proc with Gurth MH and the Mace OH. So, I can't see how this is even debatable. The stat loss is too much imo.
@Landsoul I do have one question about your BiS TG list though; the Creche, after initial proc will NEVER "line up" for a fury warrior. Having seen Maw's (Bone-Link) doing double what my tent's are on sigle tgt fights, is it just that you can't calc the potential? Is it just that the proc from the Creche even outside of stacked procs/abilities is just that good? I have the hero Creche and have seen stars align with bursts over 100K but its just bad imo on Ultrax type fights where its basically a test dummy with buffs and the occasional extra annoyance.
When we're pushing prog I still find myself having to go arms for the 5-10K extra, but oh how I'd love to get back to our real DPS spec.
