    Ahh I should be a bit more specific. I thought speed for off hand weapon doesnt matter and thought this would be a good opportunity to boost your ilvl. Just got this on my Pally and the stats in BG is way worse than Arcanite or Recruit Axe. It would make sense that Furious Slash having damage based on off head weapon speed stats. However, I don't have an Alliance Warrior to test out for a definitive answer

    Ohhh you meant fury warrior? I think it's a suitable OH weapon but I'm not 100% sure on that.

    Finally geared up a warrior and now its stats time lol.

    So Emil's Brand gives good strength boost but at a cost of stamina and crits. Its ilvl is 32, higher than Bloodied Arcanite Reaper for lvl 20s, but its speed gives a big disadvantage. It tested the damage showed in game by equipping it on both main and off hand and here is the stats:
    [​IMG]

    So in any circumstance, holding Emil's Brand on main hand doesn't seems like a good idea at all. Holding it on off-hand gives a slight damage increase in wild, except for your main skill Furious Slash (oh well). Plus you also lose crits and stamina (~150hp for me). So that's likely a no go.
    In BGs, holding Emil's Brand in offhand didn't give any stats boost but all your damage is boosted by a whooping 0.6-0.9% lol! Holding it in main hand decreases all damage by about 40% so it is definitely a no.

    In conclusion, i'd say duel wielding Arcanite Reaper in general is the best option. Holding Emil's Brand offhand in Battlegrounds is better but barely. Luckily it only takes about 15 mins to get once you get your Sign of Argas and its a unique appearance. So why not?

    Here is the toon I used to test out: https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/character/aerie-peak/sylvandancer

    Great study!!! I can definitely see two BAR being easy but since the quest for Emil's is also very easy why not get it :)

    Sweet. Hopefully that is the case. I only have my LFHs on non cloth wearers :( so I can't use the mog.

    So with the recent changes to weapon speed, is Emil's Blade now BiS for 2H weapons?

    Yes sir.

    And now horde mail users can finally complete their full set with the last boss in SFK for f2p. Pure horde f2p leather wearer's are still screwed sadly

    This does not apply to pure f2ps but I can confirm Replica Staff of Gul'dan is BiS for melee.

    As survival it increases damage on all abilities except for Throwing Axes for some reason. I lost 3 stam but i think it is still completely worth it

    Yes I am aware of the bis pieces but this is up to date. All of the Replica items are bis, even the shield for ally.

    I'd update the weapons section seeing as weapon speed has been normalized to 3.6 for 2H weapons (BAR isn't BiS now).
