Apparently upgrading from Bladespire Warbands to Lightbringer Bands will increase my white DPS and Seal of Blood DPS by a small degree, but will actually hurt my Crusader Strike and Judgement of Blood DPS by a greater amount, causing a net DPS loss. The relevant stat changes are: +11 crit rating, +16 expertise rating, and +17 haste rating for the Lightbringer. Strength is equivalent with equal gemmings. The only thing that should change Judgement of Blood's damage is +dmg, as it doesn't scale with anything else. Crusader Strike doesn't scale with haste like white damage does, but it SHOULD benefit from the expertise (I have none without the bracers) and the crit rating. Let me know if you need any more info from me, and definitely let me know if I'm missing something.

You'll need to post the character file (in an issue here), for us to take a look. First guess is that switching to Lightbringer Bands causes you to lose your metagem bonus.
