I am trying to gear a lvl 80 Enhance Shawman. I am using MaxDPS to give me an idea of the gear I should be working towards. I am looking at Triumph and 5-man stuff cause that is what I run. I have a couple of questions.1- There are several pieces of spellcaster gear listed. For example the Hammer of Purified Flame is listed as ~1.5 dps above Black Icicle. Now I know that we use an awful lot of spells for a melee, but is a caster weapon really going to be a dps increase?2- I always understood that hit was not that important for us. I am a draenei with dual wield spec. I thought that my hit cap was ~33, the soft cap since most of our dam is white or windfury. Why is MaxDPS posting weapons with high hit so prominent over things with crit and haste? Do I need to shoot for the spell hit cap as well?Thank you for any info you can provide.
