One that people don't consider about titan's grip is that using 2 slow weapons mean that, although you generate flurries slower from white damage, you also use them slower. Here's what makes titan's grip solid... you still generate the same number of flurry charges with 2 insanely slow weapons, as you would with 2 faster weapons. So the ratio of charges used to charges generated increases, causing titan's grip to produce more white damage in addition to more damage from specials. I think the main problem is that warriors are going from warglaives to blue 2-hders and then wondering where their damage is going.

By warglaives, are you referring to the Warglaives of Azzinoth? I don't know what warriors you're hanging out with, but I have yet to see any warrior on any of the three servers I frequent have even one equipped, nevermind the fact that the warglaives are still a very uncommon piece of equipment. However, more and more rogues are appearing with them. I don't think the beta testers are so ignorant as to overlook the fact that they are no longer using epic/legendary weapons when they complain about Titan's Grip not being nearly as awesome as expected.

"I don't think the beta testers are so ignorant as to overlook the fact that they are no longer using epic/legendary weapons when they complain about Titan's Grip not being nearly as awesome as expected."I do. My number one rule is "Always assume that other people are stupid". People could be getting titan's grip and switching to inferior weapons, or perhaps their damage isn't actually lower, but they're so used to seeing a steady stream of numbers that without it, they think they're doing less damage.

And if you have matched weapons the extra free flurry means all the more love.

Wow, you clearly have no clue what you're talking about, Mediator. It's not the raw white damage they're having issues with, as the article clearly states. It's the rage generation that is the problem, which is based almost entirely on weapon speed and not weapon quality.No rage = no specials = overall DPS increase no matter the weapons. Warriors with Titan's Grip are getting lower DPS on equal quality weapons because of the low speed. They fix the rage problems (and thus the DPS problem) by switching to fast 1H weapons, regardless of quality.Maybe take a class in reading comprehension before you stick your foot in it next time.

Heh, that's a good way to go about it, but in the past, most of them have shown they know remedial mathematics to divide the damage by the time to swing.
