    Tanking with a DPS weapon?

    Lately, I've been seeing a lot of high-end Prot Warriors using a DPS weapon with their tanking gear and shield. I was curious on the viability of this setup and if there was some good reason for this. What do you think?

    Often it's because the defense rating on the tanking items is no longer an issue, and a dps weapon allows for better threat gen and dps output, particularly in Heroics. I know I'll use the Bone Warden's Splitter - Item - World of Warcraft over my Rimefang's Claw - Item - World of Warcraft sometimes, since it's more threat/dps and the survivability isn't even all that much less, because of the stamina and Agility on it.
