    So I just finished leveling my 49 Enhance and was wondering about a few things, which I can and will most certainly test but wondering if other people have already done such or have any points that I'm missing.
    1. Thoughts about flurry axe for either MH/OH over ribsplitter? My initial assumption is it is too fast for the MH but then with the way that storm strike/lava lash works maybe its also just too fast for OH and not worth it at all.
    2. With lava lash being fairly mediocre damage wise is it better to just run double windfury, and if that's the case maybe just not spec'ing into lava lash at all, although I don't necessarily know where I would put the point where it would come out to be more through-put.
    3. I'm assuming the biggest difference between a dual-wield and 2h enhance shaman is mainly dual-wield is the more consistent and yet strong damage, where as 2h is just more for meme big windfury one-shots, is this correct?

    Hey Skodki! Think I saw you in bgs this evening. I am going to attempt to answer your questions to the best of my ability.

    1. Flurry axe is a solid off hand, but as enh you try to have two matching speed weapons for your wf internal cd. This also answeres your number 2. In that you are better off using double wf, but still talent into lava lash.
    3. 2h is for the massive hits, and is actually a decent option. It will net lower dps over all, but some massive hits vs clothies. I personally do prefer to dw since you get the inherited hit through the spec.

    Thank you! This was very helpful in figuring out kind of how to set things up as I was unaware of the important of having matching speed weapons. I'm very glad to hear that 2h is not as pure meme as I had initially thought as that gives me some variety in play every once in a while.
