"My take on it is yes, it's worth crafting -- it's just not better than Firelands drops for some players anymore."It's not better than 359 weapons anymore.Reposting this handy chart posted in the discussion thread by a Goblin DK named Kakh:"Secondly, this is not true when comparing the TOOLTIP to current counter-parts...∙ 359 - 1795-2693 3.6s Akirus the Worm-Breaker∙ 359 - 1795-2693 3.6s Shalug'doom, the Axe of Unmaking∙ 359 - 1795-2693 3.6s Vicious Gladiator's Greatsword∙ 365 - 1845-2769 3.5s (REALITY) Masterwork Elementium Deathblade∙ 359 - 1894-2843 3.8s Reclaimed Ashkandi, Greatsword of the Brotherhood∙ 359 - 1894-2843 3.8s Zin'rokh, Destroyer of Worlds∙ 365 - 2003-3006 3.8s (TOOLTIP)

Comment fail, though most of my point got through. The original tooltip placed it between the 359 tier 11 weapons and the 378 tier 12 weapons. After the hotfix, it's mixed in with the 359 weapons, and for some specs it is barely an upgrade over last season's PvP sword.This isn't the case with the other blacksmithing weapons. They are still a stepping stone between tier 11 and tier 12, but for some unknown reason this is unacceptable for the 2H strength DPS weapon. Considering the amount of money and effort that has to go into getting one, it is not worth crafting. Frost DKs and Fury Warriors that don't raid should probably consider saving up to buy a pair of the 378 axes and use 1H weapons to tide them over until next patch, but that leaves Ret and Arms SOL since there is no 2H 378 BoE that drops from Firelands trash.On another note, my condolences to Enhancement Shaman for not even having a 365 blacksmithing weapon. My Shaman is Elemental, but I feel your pain.
