I'd like to add that T6 was pretty terrible for Enhancement since it had useless stats like MP5 on it! you were better off gathering offset hunter pieces which just sucked since you had far less chance to get a proper set of gear than others. also you mention hit and expertise but iirc expertise was introduced late into BC and was very rare on items and hit was useless since we were hitcapped anyway and spellhit was a seperate stat.And on Cataclysm, we still scale terribly as my guild progresses through 25 heroics I fall lower and lower on the DPS charts while I started out quite high, always in the top 5 during normal modes.I feel there's never been a time when we really worked perfectly, always having clunky mechanics, little reward for effort, poor scaling and plain silly itemizing though I still like playing this spec.

Hunter pieces had MP/5 too.During BT I was wearing the BADGE LEATHER PIECES and a shaman in the top raiding guild on our server mocked me openly for it. He had 5 pieces of T6. I asked him what his DPS was on a boss we both had on farm and laughed at him. "What, 1100 DPS is amazing in that fight for Enhance." "I do 1350 average. The Rogues and I compete for first on that boss." He called me a liar and my GM sent him a link to the logs along with a comment about me being nice enough to let the Rogues have the pieces first and waiting on any raid drops that are leather.Truth is, leather at 10 ilevels less beat mail almost every time in BC. At the same ilevel it wasn't even close.The sunwell pieces of Tier were best in slot though, beating even the leather. Getting a single good piece of tier and having the 4 pc bonus was worth it.BC was not the shining period of enhance. Hell, I recall trying to go to Magister's Terrace as a pug. That almost never happened.
