    What's the difference between DW and 1H/Totem? Are we talking cosmetically?

    I prefer 1H/OH (usually two swords cosmetically) so that when I switch between tank and not-tank, my weapons don't move around in my bags. But if the 2H is a tier up, I'll use it.

    I prefer the 2H cosmetically but seem to experience ability lag so have been using Main Hand - Off Hand.

    Wish i knew for sure if there is a dps loss with a 2H.

    My exact thoughts, this is what i was specifically checking for to see if it was just me or if its universal.

    it's because of the 2h animations, but, you can actually make it play to your favor because some abilities "hit" before the animation finishes, while others don't. Abilities like combined effort hit before the animation plays out, while abilities like massive blow won't hit until the animation is over.

    Knowing this, you can make 2 attacks hit at the same time. For instance MB + punishing strike (65 mastery) will hit @ same time, and jolt + combined effort can also hit @ same time.

    The only bad part is this isn't like a 100% for sure thing, most of the time it happens, but sometimes it doesn't, but this was for sure how most shamans got 4 abilities inside deep freeze 3sec block way back when.
    Internet 101 : If anyone disagrees with you, they must be angry that you're right.
