I've got a quick gear/DPS question pertaining to my Ret. Paladin. Until now she's been using the De-Raged Waraxe. I recently decided to upgrade her to a Titansteel Destroyer, hoping that it would increase my DPS. Instead I saw a substantial drop in DPS while testing each weapon against an Ironforge practice dummy. The Waraxe did around 1400 DPS, but the Destroyer was barely scraping 900. I imagine the crit rating I'm losing has a lot to do with it, but I thought the Waraxe's hit rating and strength would substantially make up for it. My armory is here: The World of Warcraft Armory
I imagine the problem could be I was using a training dummy and not actually in an instance, but I wanted to double-check before possibly damning my party to low-DPS (and inevitable humiliation).
