It still annoys me that the Horeman's Horrific Helm is plate. Such an incredibly awesome toy and 7/10 classes can't even use it.

As opposed to the sword which is for.. 1 spec of 1 class?My dk should be able to dual wield the swords while wearing the helm!

Paladins, Warriors, Rogues, Mages, DK's, Hunters and Warlocks can all use 1H swords. The stats are only useful for 1 spec of one class, but 7 classes can at least use it for the fun of summoning a pumpkin army. Stats come and go. Pumpkin armies are forever.

Meanwhile, Druids are entirely incapable of using either. I weep.

You should have rolled one of the classes that can use it. They should make a wand that has the same effects. How cool would that be?

Actually SMF warriors and frost DKs may find the sword useful if they don't have access to 359 raid weapons or the 365 crafted one. See Ratshag's post on NeedMoreRage http://needmorerage.blogspot.com/2011/10/is-where-ratters-mathifies.html where he compares the Tankard from Brewfest

That's not a new concept, Bins. Hunters have been makin the same arguments about Tank guns for some time, most notably the Crossfire Carbine in T11 and Rowan's Rifle in ICC. WDPS is such a strong stat for physical DPS classes that Ilvl (which is directly tied to WDPS) often trumps any stats on the item. I've seen Rogues using Obsidium Cleavers, Hunters using tank guns and DK's using Maimgors Bite. It's never ideal, but an upgrade is an upgrade so they're not wrong in doing so.

Exactly Revynn. As someone who's "main alt" (that always sounds strange to me) is a marks hunter I've been watching WDPS over "agility weapons" for a while now
