let me first say that I'm amature theorycrafter at best (if at all) and math is ot myu strongest point, so what I'm presenting here is anecdotal evidence at best. but it still makes me wonder.I had an opportunity to test out to different pairs of pants - crafted and drop. one had about 60 armor penetration and one had about that much crit. both were enchanted with epic ap/crit leg kit. with crafted pant (giantmaim leggins) I gained about 6% armor penetration. with the drop (leggins of stone halls) I gained about 1.5% crit (which brough me up to 27%) our tank was a warrior though I've yet to see any of our tanks have an opportunity to stack all 5 sunders on anything other then tank and spank raid bosses - things die too quickly. I've noticed that my overall dps was higher with pen then it was with crit. I would need to test it again probably on a boss like patchwerk (otherwse known as "stand back and unleash" boss), but how do you explain my experience so far?
