View Full Version : Duel Wield PvP

11-15-2007, 10:09 AM
Any thoughts on duel wielding during battlegrounds. I'm fairly new to PvP and have changed my spec about 10 times in the last few days trying to find one that I like. I have found that I utterly hate using 2-Handers as I find them slow and boring. I dont do area's, just BG's. I'm curretly using a 27/31/3 build using 2 daggers. I'm planning on getting a slow main hand and a fast offhand.

its a tough route, you need burstability and 2handers provide this better than dw will, however I did do some arenas at the beginning of season 2, with some decent 1 handers. Although not ideal, if you can chain crit some attacks, you can REALLY destroy players fast, the biggest problem though is lack of MS = unkillable healers.

How about using a build such as

I know its not ideal, I would lack some survivability, having to stack more +hit than I would normally. I just want to be viable, not necessarily the best. I dont have any real interest in arena's, so I'm not worried about finding a team.

I've toyed around with builds like that, and it's not terrible, but dw without flurry makes for a big hit to your dw burstability.

Good point, I think I'll go with


and see how it goes. Thanks for the advice.

that is actually probably gonna be your best bet, and since you don't have to get deathwish/imp intercept in fury anymore you can get 5/5 flurry. didn't think of that.

Let us know how it goes. It's very viable if you can chain crit a lot.

1 crit for 2k is nice, but 2 crits for 1k is just as good. ;P
