I am currently dpsing as a Champ/BM and have found myself scratching my head a few times on the optimum choices for rotation and buffs.

Slayer's Bearing is obviously higher up the tree and thus I assume should provide more raw dps. However, although maths is not my forte it is clear that there must be crit levels where it is not an increase. For argument's sake, if your crit chance was 0% Soldier's Bearing is obviously better value.

I don't have way of the river or any other direct crit boosts and I wondered if at T1 gear levels (and thus not astronomical crit rates) whether my initial assumptions might be incorrect.

Similarly, using Bladefury vs Feral Sweep in your average AoE situation. Feral Sweep has better absolute numbers but if you are using it continuously, the bleed will be overwritten resulting in a dps loss.

Any number crunchers able to shed any light?
