I had a discussion about the 2H tanking weapons last night.
It's a good thing that they're out. They were lackluster in threat (especially if you already had something like a Titansteel Destroyer or better), and some DK tanks were going to keep those weapons no matter what. Technically, even though they're the only 2H tanking weapons in the game, they become "best in slot" for avoidance, because they're pretty much the only ones for that slot. Rather, they want you to use your weapon for threat, and gear elsewhere for avoidance.
With the Sigil, the Runeforge and a decent amount of gear, you should have no reason to need a weapon with any +def on it.
