@13My point is that not everyone plays the game the same way. I probably will agree with you that Arms is superior to Fury initially, as I was initially Arms before I tried Fury, and eventually fell into Protection. My problem with this quest is that it only validates that one playstyle for your entire 40's essentially, lacking other gear.Myself, I have the Sword of Omen and the Aegis of the Scarlet Commander giving me simliar stats to the quest reward weapons, with 10 less dps, but a ton more armor. It may be playstyles, but I found my survivability soloing has improved considerably as a protection spec warrior in my 40's rather than other specs, particularly fury. As Prot spec I have very little downtime and it takes alot to kill me. Whereas a swarm of 3-4 mobs would spell fairly certain death as an arms/fury warrior, I'm not worried as a prot spec. Sure it takes a little longer to kill things as the dps is a full 10 lower than those weapons, but I make up for it in survivability.Plus people I run instances with love that I'm actually Protection spec and not a fury or arms spec pretending to use a shield.Each to their own. If you like playing Arms or Fury then a player should by all means do so. I can see the arguments for Arms being superior to Fury in the 40's but Protection I think is very valid. Maybe I'm in the minority, but I don't see why an option of the class should be ignored by supposedly so important a quest line.
