OK, assume you have 2 statistically identicle rogues and 2 mainhand weapons that are identicle in every way except 1 is a sword, and 1 is a fist:

Do Sword Spec (5% chance to double swing) & Fist Spec (5% extra crit) equal out over time? If not, which one ends up being better, and how so?

I must have missed him mentioning Patchwerk. It may be a better idea to put this into one of the other 5 rogue threads on the first page, though.

The short answer is that it depends. Fist spec will be a bit higher if you have no proc-on-hit abilities, since the extra swings from sword spec will sometimes come from instants and get less than the full benefit (as discussed in many threads), but the extra swings from sword spec mean extra poison applications and extra chances for hit procs to go off.

I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt on this one, that this is an attempt at a troll, if not, do you have warning labels on everything in your home?

I place my faith in Darwinism.
