"You have to remember why it is there. It is there as a substitute to the lower swing damage from caster items."Not exactly. It's there to make weapons an upgrade for casters the way it is for physical classes. And while it's not as big of a boost to get the next tier weapon for a mage vs. warrior, it's still a larger boost than any other piece of gear.It IS true that Blizzard replaces weapon DPS with spell power, but your statement has cause and effect (mostly) backwards. Mostly, because sure as anything there were some folks who snagged caster weapons despite otherwise-useless stats; it's also why caster weapons have wonky swing speeds, too.
