Staff vs. Polearm

"For pvp weapons, get the polearm. We have ONE ability that scales based off our weapons damage, and that is fury swipes, which is a 15% chance per auto to deal 310% weapon damage. That means you want a weapon with the highest damage, not dps. The polearm does ~3.5k top end damage, staff ~1.8k. They do the same dps, but the polearm will cause your fury swipes to hit much harder. They also both have the same stats, so yeah. Get the polearm."

can anyone confirm this info? i found a comment in the official german forum, that says fury swipes are calculated by the dps while in catform... which would be the same then!
