    Default Weapon rune for MM

    Hi,

    Since we already have +HIT from weapon I am considering re place +HIT rune with something else. What are the best rune for main hand, off hand, and range weapon for MM?

    I use dex runes myself.

    Edit: I should be more clear, I use a hit ring so my hit remains at 150 or greater and use dex runes for pvp. For raiding unless you are at the recommended amount for the tier your working on you should stick with hit and switch to Blazing rage runeshards (+9ap) when you obtain enough hit related gear for the tier your in. If you do not have a hit ring you may want to stick with hit for your weapons since 150 is generally the amount pvpers favor to negate passive defenses. I favor dex runes for pvp since crit on our pvp gear sucks.

    Edit2: Corrected part of my post about raiding due to Galibiers advice. I still recommend dex for pvp though since our crit can be rather difficult to get in nothing but pvp gear.

    One additional thing though. Once you are at the crit softcap for a raid, which is 1043-(Dex*.05), you should use Blazing rage rune shard from a pure min/max position. The Dex rune isn't helping you with Crit any more and the Rage runeshard provides 4 more AP. On it's own doesn't seem like much but when you factor in the one handers as well that provides 12 additional AP over Dex runes. Right now with my Stats it's around 1000 crit that I need to be at the soft cap with raid buffs.

    Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorius triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

    True and good advice, My post was more in reference to pvp and I edited it to reflect such. I dont raid with my rogue since I normally do that on my Cleric so I forgot about those runes /shame on me!

    Yeah I kinda am the opposite now. Got my Cleric just about ID ready and then went to a new guild that was like..."you have a rogue too..GOODY!" Now I am so rusty on all but the senticar variants since people only call on him when they need a healer.

    Don't listen to Xillean. For PvE, use +9 AP unless you are in blue dungeon gear. For PvP, use +hit runes with full PvP gear, so you still make the 150 hit mark.
