Context: (I'd normally link to armory, but since 3.3 the gear will have changed by the end of the week, and may no longer reflect correct context) -------- ENH spec. Current gearing is T8 chest/helm & T9 gloves/shoulders with Trimph ring/trinket/ToQE. MH is http://www.wowhead.com/?item=50315
with Black Magic and OH is http://www.wowhead.com/?item=50191
I'm hit and expertise capped with 10.59% static melee haste. This makes my effective weapon speed about 2.3.
So, I took the risk and enchanted my MH with Black magic as opposed to my typical (second) berserking enchant. If my math is correct, when BM procs, my effective speed becomes 2.1 (still safely out of the "dip" at 1.5).
In the new heroic content and in ULD 10/25, my observation is that this enchant procs REGULARLY, as in, shorly after each internal CD (45 sec or so is my understanding). When it does, my Maelstrom Weapon comes up every 3 seconds or so, and I am finding myself able to hit LB or CL whenever the CD is up. My Overall DPS is coming out consistently higher than before(note: comparing to 2x Tankard o' Terror with 2x Berserking), much more so than would be expected with the relatively small increase in weapon stats with the new weapons.
The other thing I've noticed is that I seem to have a much more consistent WF uptime during the BM procs.
Because BM procs off of damaging spells, I am now *always* opening with Flame Shock as I run into a fight, to get an additional chance for a proc.
I need to do some parsing and some enhSim stuff to really look at the numbers, but my initial impression is WOW.
I will post more as I regear and/or get some sim results (though the theorycrafters at EJ seem to think it is a wash as you get into BiS gear).
Color me extremely happy for now.
