To expand on Angus' point, the core DPS abilities of the following specs are all very concerned with top end weapon damage (regardless of the weapon type) - Arms Warrior, Frost DK, Ret Paladin, and Enhancement Shaman. I believe Fury Warriors and Unholy DKs are also interested it, but perhaps not to the same extent that the previous specs are. Essentially, the less important white damage is to your total damage output the more important top end weapon damage is to you. For example, three main attacks of an Arms warrior (Mortal Strike, Overpower, and Colossus Smash) are all based on 150%, 125%, and 150% weapon damage, respectively. For Ret paladins it's even more exaggerated - their basic Holy Power generator, Crusader Strike, is based on 135% weapon damage and their finisher, Templar's Verdict, does 235% weapon damage with 3 Holy Power. That's before additional modifiers such as glyphs, set bonuses, and mastery.
