I think it’s important to note that 17/44 is the descendent of the venerable 17/34, one of the most popular raiding fury dps builds pre-BC.The other popular build was 12/39. I always favored 12/39 for a few reasons:1) Deep wounds breaks CC. WW/cleave on a sheep = loose mob that can no longer be CC’d. Bad news bears. It also would refresh on every crit, leaving relatively little time to tick (like blessed recovery for priests)2) Imp cleave was better than heroic strike for dps on raid bosses due to threat.3) About 55% of your damage came from white damage, not yellow, reducing the effectiveness of impale.With the move from Tactical Mastery to the Protection Tree, the second tier of arms is now pretty gimp, but recent changes to Whirlwind have made slow/slow weapon setups more favorable, perhaps making impale/deep wounds more attractive again.

"1) Deep wounds breaks CC. WW/cleave on a sheep = loose mob that can no longer be CC’d. Bad news bears."2.4 will ease the sting of this, if the change to Cleave goes through, since Cleave would no longer break CC.Also, what would (or do) you spec for Fury, post-BC? I'm thinking of respeccing my warrior from Hybrid Arms.
