I feel like this was a halfass attempt at an article, or else written by someone that has never leveled blacksmithing. I know that halfway thru the article she said that it was part one of a 2 part discussion, but I was under the impression that she would at least cover the weapons, or more than one piece of the armorcrafting set."This week I will begin comparing the various armorsmith and weaponsmith pieces to the first non-crafted upgrades in order to illustrate the value of each item and help each class and spec come to an informed decision when it comes time to choose blacksmithing specialties." I also feel like she gave some subpar advice on how to gem the Bulwark. IMHO, if you are not hit capped, hit gems, if you are hit capped, then use w/e stat is going to give you the most bang for your buck: agi, str, crit, ap. I personally never bother to look at socket bonuses when I am gemming any of my toons cause i am either gemming to hit a meta or gemming to reach a certain stat. @JDT - Amanada has a valid point that its not going to be all that lucrative at the moment to swap specs, but if you have a replacement for your crafted pieces that req you to be an armorsmith, and you have the mats lying around to make your weapons, then by all means go swap professions. Armorsmithing was for the most part a joke in BC, and tbh, it still isnt all that great in the expansion yet, mostly cause there isn't that much info.The thing to ask yourself is this: what is going to make wrath more fun? Many of us choose weapons cause they are so visible and powerful for alot of content, and most people recognize the weapons and recognize the amount of effort invested into getting them.
