Get your good buffs. Parse. Compare fights. Evolve.

Iíve seen people top parses with an IFS and the ďpunch trickĒ and suck with the best gear. Just get in there and get it done [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]
Theres few mobs with enough ac to justify 1h, but 2h wins on most mobs. like aary for instance 2h will parse higher, KT itll parse lower. Pretty known for most what has ac at this point.

This sadly is true.
Peacebringer if no Tstaff.
Tstaff till Strongman. Facesmasher more or less interchangable with bo staff.
Strongman until tunare fist+priceless or better.

Abashi more dps than bo staff but less than tunare fist+15/20 or better.
Weird combos like wurmscale and essence and shit are generally all around the same or less than bo staff on 90% of mobs.

Cycling out any of the 2h's for offhand 9dmg hits is worth about 3-5dps. Hardly worth not being alt tabbed watching youtube for. You can afk for 2.5mins of most fights and collect dkp for watching squirrels figure mazes out. Or be ultra dpsmonk flykicking for a further 5.5 top 7.8dps depending on the mob., and not watch squirrels.

TLDR buy a 3k plat peacebringer until you join vanq or riot, sow people outside ToV on a level 40 druid and pick the highest dkp/hr race to mostly AFK like dain/sev/KT until you have DKP to buy a tunare fist and gharns+primal+abashi.

Or get Primal + Sap Encrusted Branch + Wurmscale Fistwraps and move on to your next character.

Or just 2 primal fist wraps. 15 dmg is the cutoff for a higher min hit. This and the stats offset the ratio more or less.

1-29 = Wu's Quivering Staff
30+ = Imbued Fighter's Staff (Until you can afford Tstaff)

Level up your hand to hand and 1hb whenever you can, buy something cheap like a Jade mace.

Use Tstaff till you raid and get an upgrade. Also it is nice to have a SoS on hand for that buff when soloing. Don't bother spending time getting a Blam stick, shit's terrible

Blam stick is hard/annoying to get. And the chest is pretty much permacamped so you rarely will find the halflings up more than 5 minutes at a time. Definitely go with the IFS > TStaff route instead.

The blam was better before the triple attack for monks and scaling 2h damage bonus. These days the annoying reality is a Peacebringer or IFS is tough to beat for the effort.
