I have a question for you rossi... it's a little off topic, but nobody replies to days old posts, so I'm going to ask you here.I have a question about TITAN'S GRIP... What I keep reading is that this talent is great for early level grinding, but not so much for instancing. What's been said is that overall DPS output isn't quite what some had thought. So having 2xslow2H overall isn't as good as 2x1H. My question comes from the fact that I've seen alot of the new gear from the Beta contains Haste Rate increases. It seems that it would be significantly easy to stack alot of haste, almost negating the 20% slowdown thats inherent in the talent. I wonder if you could even over-stack haste, so that you swing that heavy TROLL BUTCHERER even faster than the advertised 3.1 secs. Couple that with flurry, and it seems DPS would go way up. How come nobody is talking about the abundance of +haste gear and its effect on TITAN'S GRIP?edit:someone also mentioned WF totems in raids, but i was thinking of the more common 5mans. I want to see my toon carrying two weapons each as big as he is, but i also want to see my name at the top of the DPS meter...

Haste works on normal weapons too though, so there's no net difference there (save haste from the weapons themselves, which won't be that big a difference overall).

good point, mistermoose. I guess that means if I can stack enough haste to make my 2h weapons speed

good point, mistermoose. I guess that means if I can stack enough haste to make my 2h weapons speed less than 3secs, then my 1h weapons would probably less than 2secs, and then DPS would probably scale relatively. I just would like to hear from a beta tester about this, because all they've said so far is TG is a little disappointing.ps sorry for the double post. "less than" sign seem to break up the text.

I'm wondering myself if fast 2h weapons are going to make a comeback of sorts... a 2.2 speed polearm in the offhand could be more rage than a 3.5 or slower weapon.

Sorry to further derail, but don't you also need to consider:- Bigger Whirlwind hits- Extra stats from 2x 2handers- Dual wielding with SlamI'm no theorycrafter, but it just sounds badass.
