@ Grubba:The change was in 3.2. And the only axe I see in the 5 mans has armor pen on it. And yea, I think spell plate is stupid as heck. Let's look at 3.3http://www.wowhead.com/?items=2&filter=ub=4;cr=82:123:42;crs=1:3:3;crv=0:0:0Rogue weapons. 32 of them. 9 are ranged. http://www.wowhead.com/?items=2&filter=ub=7;cr=82:123:42:36:36;crs=1:3:3:1:5;crv=0:0:0:2.4:3Getting rid of weapons that are too fast, and 2-handers, 9. Enhance Shaman got 2 in the ranged slot (using elemental as a possible, really only 1 in that slot)Shaman have as many total options in 3.3 as Rogues have stat sticks. 4 of those options have armor pen which only helps about 50% of their damage so it is a pretty low weight stat for Enhance. I'll still take the armor pen over nothing, but a rogue sees a ton more damage from it.So yea, I really don't think Axes going to rogues helped Shaman. Now they have to compete with the rogues on every weapon type they can use, while rogues still have no competition on daggers and only have to compete with DKs on swords.Really, how do you justify buffing one class by giving a completely different class access to their weapons and not lowering the amount of drops the other class saw?
