Don’t get me wrong, Thassarian is one heavy dude. I have a lot of respect for a fellow Death Knight, especially one who faced up against Arthas. But Thassarian, you’re doing it wrong.
Dual wielding in Blood presence makes no sense, but I’ll forgive him; he’s only level 72 after all. He has a long way to go before getting to 90.
This is one for the original DKs. Found while leveling my lowbie Shaman through Wrath content.
Happy Killing, TyphoonAndrew.
interesting. during wrath i had a blast dpsing in blood presence, can’t remember if i was dual-wielding or not. i also tanked a good bit in unholy (mainly outland instances). then bliz hosed up my party by making blood “the” tanking tree.
looks like northrend thassarian didn’t get the memo.
I dunno, I recall being a DW Blood DK tank/dps (I really liked Blood spec) for a while back in Wrath when I got two 1H Str tanking weapons of significantly higher iLvl than any 2H weapon I’d been able to find. Perhaps Thassarian just has really crappy loot luck when it comes to weapon drops.
I remember that DW tanking was frowned upon because of the increased Parry rate resetting the raid bosses swing timer more frequently, but our guilds MT was a DW tank all the way through Ulduar. We had no problems at all, it just wasn’t optimal =).
