That's a lot of backstory just to say your DPS went down when you changed gear.
short time reader, first time poster here.
I use to play FFXI and didn't start to play WoW till this expansion. So that brings me to my question. I finally just got Cal Grasp and replaced my Silent Crusader. I have hailstorm for my offhand currently. So before i got CG i was doing like 4.5-5k dps on PW, then Tuesday my first time being able to use CG in a raid, i only did 3.9k... I also changed my neck to maly25 reward(prob going back to fools trial tho). I was already a little below the hit cap with food before so loosing the 31 hit from the sword +28 from neck, i figured would maybe make my dmg change but the added dmg from CG i thought would be enough to annul that and I would survive till i got either 2 drake legs or maly 25 hands. My hit at the time was about 240 and expertise was at 20. Now after doing some regeming, and getting some feet that have expertise im at 279 and 24 exp. Well I cant survive(now granted our maly25/OS run is tonight but who's to say it will drop finally?) I guess my ultimate question here is then does swordx2 really add that much dmg? I had been checking my dps chart to see how many procs i get from sword spec and its never really that insane that it jumps out at me.. not enough to cover an extra 5% crit i thought. Did i have one bad night or should i be worried?
