Sep 22nd 2007 11:23AM Mech. It was the Tempest Keep instance of choice to get revered, and then it was the heroic of choice after that. Also, Shadow Labs. I ran that place over 70 times for the Leggings of Assassination to drop, but they never did. That was the one piece that I needed to complete the set.
Sep 4th 2007 2:42PM My rogue used to be fist specced. I had the Stormreaver Warblades and Reflex Blades from Tempest Keep. They have the advantage of a sword specced rogue with higher Damage ranges than daggers, yet they have the benefit of dagger combat spec with the 5% crit chance. There are a number of talents in the combat tree that increase crit damage. When I had my fist weapons I was on the top of the damage meters... until raiding really got in full force. Kara only has one fist drop from the BBW and the other Epic fist that is somewhat achievable is from Heroic SH. After that there is little to nothing available.
I think that Blizz needs to give Fist weapons more endgame love. I'm not too concerned about the leveling game. I'd love to see an epic Fist weapon in the blacksmithing tree similar to the Dragonmaw mace and Fireguard sword. Or even something like that in the JC tree. Fist weapons are viable end game weapons, if Blizz puts them out there.
