Oh, Wonderful. Now fury warriors might be rolling on my rogue weapons again. Cause shaman, Dual wield DKs, and Hunters looking for stat sticks weren't enough weapon competition.

Those are and have always been fury weapons. You're a rogue rolling on warrior loot.

To be fair, they are reintroducing strength-statted one handers in Cataclysm, so hopefully they'll be well enough itemized that one handed fury warriors and DW DKs will be rolling on those instead, and Rogues can stick with the Agility-statted one handers alongside Hunters and Enh Shamans.

I wouldn't imagine so. Considering the loss of attack power as a stat, Fury warriors and DK's will want strength on their weapons. Rogues, shaman, and hunters will want agility. So assumedly, it'll be better.

Easy as pie... Itemize Maces and Axes with Strength because from a lore perspective these would be more consistent with brute force and it wouldn't be to much of a stretch to offer Swords and Fist Weapons as more of a Finesse style and just let the rogues have their daggers. So Str on Axes/Maces and Agi on Swords/Fists and life should be good... and take away hunters choices in weapons.. 2h stat sticks they would share with feral druids should be enough to get them by... Not everything needs to be hunter loot... Remove DW from Hunters...

It may not have occurred to you, but warriors don't spend a whole lot of time worrying about the feelings of rogues.

You want to talk weapon competition, try a healer. Just as many specs/classes as you've named, and there are always at least one other in every sized raid, looking over your inventory saying "That's a nice mace you have there. But the upgrade to it is mine." I'm thankful blizz made us just different enough we didn't always go for the exact same stats, but by this point in the game we're coming together again.I for one am looking forward to playing my warrior again, in all her various weapon modes. Lunking around two giant maces never really felt awesome to me, at least not as much as having many, many white hits. I suppose I could have just rolled a rogue, but that's the easy way out.

@DjinnSince Shaman cant use swords making axes have str and swords have agi wouldn't be convenient.I think Dagger/Fist/Axes for Agi, Swords and Maces for str would work better. Unless I've missed something.

@DocpWarriors? Without axes? Seriously? The axe is pretty much THE weapon that represents the bloodthirsty maniac cackling as flesh and blood and god-know-what-else spatters on his face whilst he mutilates his victim beyond recognitrion, which is basically what fury is all about.
