View Full Version : s2 Weapons and Armorsmith or Weaponsmith and honor gear

21-05-2008, 04:10 PM
Ok this character used to be my main and got put into retirement quite a while back. I'm now thinking of bringing it back for use as dps in heroics and some random BG PvP. No plans on raiding but would like to get it up to a decent standard.

I'm currently swordsmith with crappy Fireguard in use, I'm thinking of respecing to Armorsmith to get the chest and probably picking up the s2 weapons when they come to honor. This is my first option the other being upgrading my smithing weapons and getting two decent ones and picking up some newer armor upgrades.

Any thoughts or advice on which anyone thinks would be best, I have the gold to fully upgrade whatever I craft so thats not a problem

now all weaponsmith weps can be dual weilded, so go macesmith and dualweild the haste-crazy hammers of doom?
Then use honor for S2 armor.

Thats my oppinion

Yeah thats what I was considering at the moment, sounds like a decent option

Get lolherald and s2 armor.

And think about Netherforce Chestplate, for pure pve dps it might (imo) be better than S2 chest.

The onion in the ointment reagarding 2xDragonstrike is that the Hasteproc doesn't stack.

Still, nice uptime on the proc with two of those, though...

I got a double dragon strike - put some exe and mong on them -

the look OWNS. the dps is correct, and you get the buff 1.5x more about. I had it about one time out of 3 mobs doing dailies in QD

Thanks for the replies, going with the Dragonstrikes and honor gear.

Its a nice look and the dps isn't bad either specially for what I'm planning on doing so can't complain
