View Full Version : Death Knight Blood Tanks BS weapon?

How do you guys feel about this weapon when it comes out? Should we just keep worm-breaker? It's kind of lame we don't have many weapons to choose from.

Is haste really that bad even when we'll reforge out of it?

I think the important things is that it has Mastery on it, from there you have the choice to add Dodge or Parry. Having Mastery is about all we can ask for since we will prolly never see a true 2 handed tanking weapon, which is sad but I understand their motives behind it because it would limit the weapon to one class/purpose only.

haste is a neutral stat, meaning Warriors and Ret Pally's can reforge into Hit or Expertise, and we can go to Dodge or Parry.

Don't forget that it's 3.8 speed instead of 3.6, which I would presume adds a lot more damage/threat than some measly expertise (yes I know exp has some defensive value for a DK).

Problem is that it will be BiS for pretty much every arms, fury, retry, unholy and blood, and all the alternatives have haste. Expect serious discussion in every raid that manages to down Ragnaros.
