My Warrior is sad...I don't see any tanking weapon in here.=(I'll just have to make due with giving him a DPS sword, I guess.

Indeed, it makes me sad too. Moreso sad because there isn't a DPS axe version. Which means I will not be able to use Quel'Delar for either my Prot Mainspec, or my Arms offspec.At least Ret Pallies, Tanking DKs, and Tanking Druids will be happy with their options.

@KarilynIt has 267.2 dps at a good healthy slow speed of 3.6.Is sword spec optimal for arms? Hell no. But unless you have something close to those numbers up there, this is an upgrade, and a damn good one at that.

You tanks already have Quel'Serrar.

My druid is going to rip his hair out just trying to decide between the 2-handed mace for tanking or the one-handed spell power mace for healing.Can we do the quest twice? PLEASE!?

An axe with decent stats one tier lower will beat out this sword for arms, maybe even 2 tiers. Sword spec is that sub-par, even after the "buff". Still awesome for non-raiders and alts.

At least the lack of a tank weapon is consistent... the caster dps weapons are really unfair to some classes. Boomkins, elemental shammies, and shadow priests are all getting the shaft, since none of them can wear swords. As if the 'hybrid tax' wasn't bad enough without denying them good gear as well.DPS caster items should really always be daggers or staves, since those are the only item types that all DPS casters can wear. As it is, hybrid DPS casters will have top settle for the less-than-optimal MP5 maces. Healer gear is already done like that, nearly all MP5 weapons now are 1-H maces, which can be worn by all classes of healer.

actually, i see a decent tanking 2h maces for the druids. anyone else notice though that the best tanking wepons for bears seems to be the gladiator stuff? correct me if i'm wrong, but i always look at the +agi and +stam first and i never see any other weapons come close to those guys. always thought that seemed a little off that my best tanking wep was only available through hardcore pvp

I was also sad to see no warrior/pally tank weapon. maybe it'll be an axe, since this only lists the sword and mace options, maybe they'll add the axe and staff options in a later build. and why is it ilvl251 when it's "heroic", i suppose the number could be changed around for when it's on live.Benj,that was the problem Prot pallies had back in BC during arena season 3, the best prot pally weapon was the S3 mace.
