I've been looking around at some of the top ferals and noticed that they all seem to be using the Cata Staff rather than the Cata Pike. It makes me wonder, since the staff is faster (2.0 speed) and a lower top-end damage but slightly (very) more DPS, wouldn't you want the pike (3.6 speed & much higher top-end damage) for harder Mangles for instance? Or am I missing something here?

Side Note: This is my druid atm: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte...C3%A8ar/simple, I'm using the LFR Kiril, would the normal Cata weapon be THAT big of an upgrade? I know it has slightly better static stats and you can reforge the Crit into Mastery, but the Kiril effect is pretty handy.
