My 60 rogue is duel-weilding with life stealing and I love it. This week I'll test gouge to make certain that lifestealing does not break it. Since there is a constant debate between this and crusader I want to add a section about that and discuss some of the pros and cons.

- Lifesteal = 6 PPM
- Crusader = 1 PPM
- PPM = white attacks.
- Yellow attacks gain the % of the PPM, which wil be higher for crusader.
- Slower weapons gain a higher Yellow attack % modifier, thus slower weapons have more benefit from PPM attacks compared to faster weapons.
- Yellow attacks are Mainhand only.
Personally, i use LS mainhand, and 15 agi offhand. User:CrazyJack/Sig 09:18, 14 November 2006 (EST)
Actually yellow attacks are based on proc per swing (PPS) which is PPM/60*(Weapon Speed). This accounts for why yellow attacks benifit more from slower weapon procs. But since crusader has less PPM than lifestealing, it will also have a lower PPS. Lifestealing should have 0.1*(Weapon Speed) while Crusader would have 0.016*(Weapon Speed).
