I had posted this on Hymn's forums and decided to put a copy on here as well. Please forgive the formatting as I had the numbers and data color-coded on his forum, but Wowhead didn't like it. So for this copy the formatting is :
-Value below hit cap (Value at or above hit cap)
This is strictly for DW death knights using a fast/fast friendly build, i.e. 0/32/39, tri-spec, etc.
Someone in my guild was asking me last night about possible upgrades for her 1h weapons, which got me thinking about it. So I have been trying to put together a good list, from best of the 25man raids to the lowly crafted blues, of the acceptable one-handers for DW DKs. I used the stat weighting from EJ with slight modifications to accomidate the non-2H build.
Format:Stats (Point Value)DPS
(0.386) (Thanks and credit to Eriskhaos for the Agi value)
So here's the list for PvE DPS:Note: I got tired of typing out all the math so here is the general formula used:
(stat#1*stat value)+(stat#2*stat value)+...etc etc.
Ex.//Last Laugh: (24 hit*2.40)+(37 str*2.365)+(171.6 dps*10.36) = 1923.066 total value
Malygos (Eye of Eternity)
Grand Widow Faerlina (Naxx25)
#5:Deadly Gladiator's Bonecracker
#6:Deadly Gladiator's Hacker
#7:Deadly Gladiator's Quickblade
#9:Avool's Sword of Jin
Random World Drop
Emblem Of Heroism Vendor
#12:Red Sword of Courage
King Ymiron (Heroic Utgarde Pinnacle)
#13:Slayer of the Lifeless
Gothik the Harvester (Naxx10)
Drakos the Interrogator (Heoric The Oculus)
#15:Fang of Truth
The Wyrmrest Accord Quartermaster
Meathook (The Culling of Stratholme)
#17:Eternally Folded Blade
Volkhan (Halls of Lightning)
#18:Furious Saronite Beatstick
#19:Hammer of Quiet Mourning
Quest Reward (Wanted:Ragemane's Flipper, Zone: Zul'Drak)
It should be noted that with the exception of Last Laugh, all of the weapons listed, from Naxx, will also drop off Gluth, as he draws his loot table from everything except Sapphiron and Kel'Thuzad.
Suggestions, requests, and corrections are all welcome!
