Boo haste! This makes my DK sad.

Unholy FTW. I can't wait to get my hands on it.

I said the same thing. Why do all of the 2H swords with tons of stam also have a ton of haste?

I'll see your 'stupid haste' and raise it a 'what, no axe?' for my arms warrior. Seriously though, haste? Do paladins like it or something?

Isn't Sword Spec for Warriors pretty decent with 10% proc chance? At least for PvE; I can see why you'd want Axe Spec for more crits during Bladestorm for PvP.

Haste makes you swing faster. Melee dmg is one of most dk's top dmg sources. We also benefit more from haste than other classes.-I forget what patch they gave us better contribution from haste.

No, the votes are in. Sword spec still sucks. It's a 10% chance at an extra white hit every 6 secs(internal cd). Axe spec isn't just +5% crit, it's +5% crit bonus dmg as well. Take a look at your dps and what meta they're using. I'm willing to bet it's one variation or another of the +3% crit dmg meta. Basically, axe spec will beat out an equally statted mace every time (if you believe the maths of various Elitist Jerks posters, which I do), no matter what the stats of the warrior in question. Sword spec doesn't even come close. As I said in a post below, even if your axe is a tier below, being an axe makes it better. To make matters worse, it has haste on it which is a terrible stat for arms due to slam.
