    Lots and lots and lots of DK's are already doing, and several of them have been doing for longer still than it was readily designed for in talents?


    Also, dual wield tanning sounds like fun. Fat chance in Icecrown though.

    I am deffinatelly going to do it on the next patch, not worth it now though (would miss some expertise in exchange for defence when losing Rune of SSG.) But there are pleny of DW tanking dks out there already, and there were a few also before - I remember when I was only a DPSer before dual talents were out in begining of wotlk, our naxx 25 tank was already dual wielding by then, and wasnt bad.

    I have this MS paint picture in my head of a ripped DK dual wielding tanning beds.

    I'd do it better if a damn Quel serrar or a weapon from ToC 10 dropped!

    p.s. to Tronk: you use DPS weapons to DW tank, not tank weapons.

    Dang it, too slow for a "be sure to use at least 30 SPF" crack.

    I hear that. I've been running it every week on 2 different toons and i have yet to even see it drop, in the 10 or 25.

    not necessarily true. I still use BP in my main-hand so it's not a huge deal, but you can DW fast/fast when threat is not a concern. you just have to bump up your expertise slightly, to 30 from 26.

    I wasn't going to DW, but yesterday was an embarresment of riches,Quel Serrar dropped for me as did Peacekeeping Blade. Guess the gods of tanking made the decision for me.
