Getting Uncrittable Dillema
So I am DK tank and I have more then enough gear to hit 540+ def. My problem however is that this requires I swap some of my more recently attained epic gear out for my old blues. One example is my Keystone ring. This ring is obviously very good for tanking with it's huge amount of dodge and +armor etc... However as a DK I do not get +def on my weapon (or shield that I cannot use) like other tanks get. This is making it very difficult for me to maintain 540+ def for raids while not having to revert back to subpar blue items.
Here is a link to my armory page.

My main question is what are peoples opinions on a DK tank using this weapon for tanking.

It is basically the only 2-hander in the game outside of the PvP one that requires 2050 team rating to get, that offers defense in the form of resilience. The downside is I lose ALOT of stamina and my DPS will get hurt also. Which is a big problem also since DK's rely on pure dmg for threat since we have no +threat abilities until patch with runic strike.
I guess the only thing I can think of to do is spend the gold to get my cloak enchanted with +def and keep soloing Slabs to get adamantine figureine drop and use it as my other trinket. Which also sucks too though since when I get one of the better Wrath trinkets like the +111stam one, I will not be able to use it since I will be required to keep on using the adamantine figureine.
I also thought that in the next patch blizzard was adding some +def craftable titansteel 2-handers, but more recently I haven't seen anything about it coming up in the patch.
Well I guess just wondering what peoples opinions are on what I should do and what other DK's are doing to circumvent the problem of not having a +def 1-hander and shield to use.
