First and foremost, Parry haste was a problem in the past, due to CRUSHING BLOWS.
For those who haven't noticed...
THERE IS NO MORE CRUSHING BLOWS!
If your at the min. on def, then the hit taken from the parry haste will be one of 4 things for a DK:
Can someone explain to me... why it's ok for warriors to use fast weapons, when they are getting parried just as often, have lower AVOIDANCE(made up by block+armor), ALL their attacks are physical and therefore CAN be parried, whereas DK's rotations are considered spell, and you people want to justify that DW tanking "sucks" and "will kill you".
Without even looking at numbers, or WWS reports, it's clearly obvious that DWing is 100% viable, and in the right gear situations, potentially better? The 2hander rune for def is giving ONLY to 2 handers, BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF TANK STATS ON THEM.
All 3 tree's can tank. Frost is ideally designed to use DW, due to:
The DW Talents.
People need to use their brains, and quit listening to blizzard, just because they have intentions for a class to be played, doesn't mean it is the ONLY way it can be. This is why there is specs like shockadins, smite priests, etc. 100% efficiency? NO. Viable? Yes.
Quit the damn QQing, and I'm sorry for ranting. I've just seen 348390489834 people who "DW tanking sucks, get a 2hander!", without having any information, without using their brain, and with no proof that one is better than the other.
