"Unleashed Weapon plus Flurry plus Bloodlust/Heroism will mean some seriously fast attacks"Actually, Unleashed Weapon getting the Flurry proc effect (+2 charges and removing the necessity to crit), while Mastery gets Melee Haste as one of its stats more likely means that Flurry is on a slow arc towards File 13. Hopefully this is being done to turn it from something that's essentially always on once you have sufficient crit, into something that hits in bursts and falls off; reducing baseline melee damage (at 39-40% for most Enhance now), by creating lulls based on how much of Flurry's current haste goes to Mastery and how much goes to the UW WF Proc. This would open up more room for our other abilities to hit harder. It also means that you will likely have the haste buff when opening up on a target instead of waiting on your first crit - which will be better when we're running back and forth between targets." I mean of course the use of Lava Burst with Maelstrom Weapon procs! This could have major implications. Could. With passive Nature damage bonus from Mastery I don't know how viable a Lava Burst will be,"I suspect the only time LvB MW5 becomes viable is if you can line up a FlS Dot + UW 20% Fire damage buff -> MW5 LvB combo so that it crits with the buff active.Otherwise, the Nature Damage baseline buff is probably going to keep LB ahead; especially if they go ahead with the suggested removal of Mental Quickness.
