I've been playing a feral druid for about 3+ years now as my main, bear in BC, cat in Wrath. So with that I ask: How is this BiS for a cat druid?! Theres ZERO agility on that mace, possibly the most important stat for a cat. Str is essentially a wasted stat on us as anything it offers us is offered better with agility. Honestly if I saw a cat bid on this I may in fact slap them. Whatever lists you saw this as the BiS for kitties needs to stop making webpages or at the very least BiS lists for Feral druids.It is possible that they meant this to be BiS for bears, but even then I'm not so sure about that. Once again whatever str has to offer us Ferals, agility does it ten times better. For cats we get increased crit (one of our main stats) and attack power, for bears we get increased attack power and dodge (another main stat for bear tanking). But this mace is definetly for warriors or DK's, possibly even BiS, definetly not a good mace for Ferals though.

With ferals approaching the white hit cap and the huge lack of hit on things, this becomes better than it would back in t8 times. Str starts beating agi at higher levels of arpen too. Mostly it's the high value of arpen plus the devaluation of crit that makes this good. It isn't bis like coldbear said, but it is well up there and is great if you're looking to cap arpen

Bloodfall (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=50178) is what I'm currently hoping for on my cat druid.

Actually, Strength is never that far behind Agility (until 3.1, every feral socketed Str) so until Cataclysm, when we will most likely be brought in line with rogues and enhancers and receive only 1 AP per point of Str, those 2H Maces will still be interesting to us, not just because of the raw DPS, of course a tad less so that Agi 2Hs.

Good geared kitties are reaching the crit cap for white hits with ICC gear, and agility on items starts to get partially wasted."Str is essentially a wasted stat on us as anything it offers us is offered better with agility."Incorrect, Str actually gives more Ap than Agi. Kitties were actually gemming it before the Ulduar patch, how can you forget that?Cryptmaker has both Arp and Hit, dps ferals will be aiming for the Arp hardcap so that's pretty sweet, and our T10 has zero hit and that makes this weapon even more desirable.For a feral of 3 years, you certainly seem to have some holes in your class knowledge.

Feel free to pass on it to arms/fury warriors then. We'll happily give it a home.

Also, currently, Agility does nothing to affect AP for bears. Only strength and AP on the weapon will do thisMy 2c

I have 3 years as feral too, and I'm a kitty since wrath started. Since wrath, kitties began to shine. What I mean is, things have changed for us, you can't keep thinking as a feral from 3 years ago.About 400 - 500 ArPen, AGI becomes a wasted stat, only getting better if you can reach the ArPen hard cap wich is about 1400 ArPen. STR give us 2.3 AP for each point, AGI gives us 1.3 AP if I'm not mistaken. About 75% Crit we start to get more and more near the crit cap for white damage from gear only, wich also makes AGI a wasted stat.With all that said, ICC gear easily gives us those numbers, and If you really have the opportunity to get to roll (or spend dkp) for this weapon, wich means that you are a raider, you probably have some pieces of ICC gear already (or are aiming to have).Long story short, STR and ArPen are better than AGI when you are near your caps with high level gear.
