Let's see...so if you're a swordsmith, you get 2 1.6 speed weapons which is pretty much good for...nothing.If you're a rogue and picked up macecrafting, you're going to be going slow/slow, which is...bad. Slow/slow for a warrior isn't great either since it's so hard to hit cap you're best off using a fast offhand for more consistent rage generation.The only class this really works for is shaman, who can dual wield the slow axes or slow maces. Otherwise, meh.They need to remove the specialization too in order for this to be useful. I mean, crafted 1h mace + crafted 1h sword offhand would be awesome.

you're misinformed about warriors. slow/fast is better for rage generation, true, which is why it's ideal when the mob is in execute range, but if you have over 29-30% crit, you can keep flurry up without a problem, and slow/slow clearly will put out more damage. the hit cap is not important for warriors. well, not AS important, compared to other stats. once you reach 95 hit, your yellow attacks won't miss. and since your white damage only consists of around 40% of your total damage, AP and Crit are so much more essential, as it affects 100% of your damage. i wouldn't recommend only having 95 hit as a fury warrior, you'll never have any rage, it won't matter if you're slow/slow or slow/fast.

PvE warriors = epic fail. Given the choice of pretty much ANY other DPS class, I'll take...any other dps class. Poor group utility. Pretty much the only class I'd bump for a moonkin.PvP yeah, you might have a point. But I think that dual wielding vs a 2 hander might make the point moot.

really shows just how little you know. dps warrirors just scale right into the stratosphere the further along their gear progresses. a T6+ dps warr can and will rock any and all comers in terms of melee dps output.it takes them a while to get good in terms of gear, but when they do, they are simply awesome. if i had a 5 man group with a non-warrior tank, i'd go out of my way to get a dps warr in. shouts, fears, badass dps and the ability to OT in a pinch hardly constitutes bad group utility.
