I was wondering with the addition of malestrom weapon for enhancement will our weapon selection change from using a slow off-hand to a fast one?

Nope.Much as people keep trying to force justifying it, it won't unless they completely redo WF, Flurry, and Stormstrike.Fast weapons use up flurry charges giving you less bang for your buck from them, WF often has a lesser damage proc because that fast weapon got to attack first, and Stormstrike hits for less due to it being a fast weapon.Spell damage will have higher threat, and even with more MW procs you have an 8 second CD for LaB so unless you can somehow build 10 stacks in 8 seconds to pump 2 instant spells you will lose ED uptime. Losing 9% crit for a spell that hits fairly hard is probably not going to be worth it.Slow/slow has not been changed. Love it and use it.

Angus is correct. I am using slow/slow and it's still the way to go for shamans.
