    Default Question about melee gameplay

    hi,

    Im new to cleric and i wanna try shaman, but i wonder what weapon to use ? Are melee DPS important ?

    2h hammers featuring wisdom as a primary Stat are the weapons you'll be wanting.

    You use the same weapon for range/melee attacks, which will have high wisdom & spell power.


    For Shaman if you use a 2hander you can have sight lag for Massive Blow, which can hurt you dps when trying to min/max at level 60.

    Actually with Cleric melee DPS you definitely want a 2h weapon 1h/oh animations skew our rotation. You can find several posts about it in these forums. Also all the best weapons for us are 2h anyway.

    Any calling using 2h weapon gets 0.5 sec ability lag every once in a while, never happens with mh\of, even better when u transmorf them to swords from mace\book. Tested by a lot of guildies, confirmed 100%, a lot credits spent on transmorf.

    Obviously we should be able to transmog the primal beacon to a 1h sword.
