I think this may have been a case of that specific sword simply having wildly inflated secondaries. If I recall correctly, when I played during Wrath, +STR and +Hit were the stat kings for plate DPS classes (I remember all the guides recommending +STR gems in every slot and +STR enchants on everything) and secondary stats were, well, secondary, and inflated secondaries on a weapon weren't that big a deal. But now that secondary stats have so much more importance, I suspect that an "outlier" weapon like that just wreaks havoc with modern calculations, so that all the addon sees is that this particular sword offers +15 more Haste and Crit than everything else that drops.
But now, the Gear Advisor starts popping up, trying to get me to put the old 360 version Ring #1 into Ring #2's slot, since iLvl 360 is better than 350. Except I can't do that, because of the "Unique-equipped" modifier. So I click "Cancel". And then the window continues to pop up after every action my character takes, over and over and over, until I get rid of the old ring by vendoring, scrapping, or destroying it.
