This is unfortunately not related to Arms but I had this realization too late to comment on a more appropriate post.I rolled a Warrior with the full intent of using a Single-Minded Fury spec for PvP. I was heartened to hear that it and Titan's Grip were getting slightly closer in terms of damage potential, but recently it hit me that there is a pretty big disparity between the stats for one-handed weapons versus two-handed weapons.Especially in terms of PvP combat, where you have to compete with everyone's numbers, that 400-ish strength and stamina I'd be losing from using Single-Minded Fury instead of Titan's Grip seems like a big handicap.I'm sorry if I am overreacting. Does anybody else that knows more about these things than I do have any input they'd be willing to share?

Single-minded Fury is currently slightly outperforming Titan's Grip, so you're in luck.

Well, SMF has a 20% damage buff while wielding 1-handers to make up for lower stats on the weapons.

I recently switched from TG to SMF and am finding it to be great fun. The damage output is comparable, and the rage generation seems smoother. The biggest downside is the loss of about 10k health because of lower stats on the weapons. Normally, the health pool of a DPSer would not be an issue, but with Cata being downright hostile to melee, every little bit matters. Still, SMF is well worth a try.
