Enhammy - MH or OH

3 posts in this topic

I just saw a fellow Enhammy running around with his higher DPS weapon in his OH and whispered him that his weapons had gottens swapped. I mean I learned years ago that you put the higher DPS weapon in the MH, right? Then I started to think how many things have changed over the years and maybe he knows something I don't. So I started to think about it. Why do we do this? SS uses both equally, LL charges the OH and works from OH DPS. Is it because of Windfury procs? I'm not finding information on our white melee damage and mabye that's it?

Is it still true that we want our higher DPS weapon in our MH?

The miss chance for your offhand weapon is much higher, so you should have your best weapon in your MH slot as a matter of course.

AFAIK from my limited experience, white damage still does a large proportion of our DPS as Enhancement. Since the miss chance is high for OH, it's a pretty big DPS boost to put the highest DPS onto the MH.

Makes sense :)

      Maximum Effort is a new guild on Cenarion circle (A). I was the raid leader for my guild for a long time and we built up a strong raid team. Due to do some dis-agreements between me and the guild leader I was forced to leave. But luckly enough a lot of my team followed me! We're working to build a guild focused around team work and group progression. We love doing mythics, raids, talking and theory crafting about the game!
      We have a very strong-core raid group, capable of clearing heroic and doing some mythic but we're just missing a few people to round it out!
      Raid nights.. Tue/wed 6-830pm server (9:30-11:30 est) Off night Monday 6-830pm server (9-11:30 est)
      Looking for.. -Any and all dps specs
      - Non pally or holy priest healer!
      All raid mats and needs are covered by guild, we run personal look just for the ease of it.
      My btag is Hethrus#1504 if you have questions or wish to try out!

      I have recently started a new Resto Shaman so that I can learn the healing function from the beginning.  My character is only lvl 37 at the moment but am trying to figure out what healing weapons would work for this spec.  
      Because the static group I am in has chosen to forego the use of heirlooms, I am using only a few items to gain the 3 levels I need to catch up with them.  However, when I searched for information on what weapons would be best for this spec at my level, most of the sites I find are talking about the artifact weapons, which doesn't help me.
      Can anyone provide feedback for this topic?   I really would appreciate any pointers.
