    Post I don't think 2H is dead: Actually blizz seems okay with it

    I think if blizz really wanted us to not have 2h, they could have easily just made us unable to equip 2h weapons. This is not the case.
    Secondly alot of you seem to be thinking that the stormstrike restriction means they mean to kill 2h for good, but I don't think this is true either:

    To me it seems like more of a balance change so that 2h doesn't actually become stronger than dw, especially in burst situations (pvp) where you now have the possibility, with echo of elements, for some insane 2h burst from an ehancement shaman. I don't know if anyone's tested it yet but I have a suspicion that 2h, even with the complete loss of stormstrike, may be pretty viable as far as not being completely damageless as to be unusable even for fun. Besides, don't forget we have primal strike

    maybe they left 2h available so we can use INT Staffs and Maces as ele/resto

    and we dont have primal strike. it becomes stormstrike after choosing the enhancement spec

    Well, there are classes with different weapon rules for different specs.
    For example, blood dks can't possibly dualwield, while for frost it is both possible and viable.

    I can equip a bow on my warrior but it doesn't mean I can use the damn thing effectively...

    yes they changed that back then, but they still want enhancement shamans to use 1hander :/ i dont even care about the fact i "cant" use 2hand weapons

    Knowing Blizzard, the best possible solution you could ask for would be http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/forum/to...7314816?page=1.

    If Blizzard ever balance enhancement around being able to dual wield and use a 2 hander, I will do something drastic.

    They probably should have removed that option when they removed throwing items from warriors.

    Primary spells should be bound to your mouse; all the others to your keyboard.
    A default UI is a useless UI.

    They didnt remove it because we have legendaries that wouldnt be wearable anymore. Just the same reason why warriors can still use bows.

    There is no sign that 2h enhance will ever be viable again. It's simply dead.

    Druids can use fistweapon. One... they can't use them in the second hand and there is no agility offhand. Since 10 years. Beat this stupidity. So doesen't mean anything that shamans can still use 2H weapons.

    There was the one intel/spirit fist in ToT off of the Council that Druids could use.

    spellpower fists.... serious dont flame if its that stupid

    I've seen about 3 spell power fists in game so far xD

    Would love shamans to get a 2H spec back, but the problem is 2H is awesome because of triple windfury crits and if you nerf that for pvp reasons it'll feel like a wet noodle...

    Could we just have a pure PvE 2H spec? xD

    They should just make a glyph or something that makes your attacks look like you're using a 2-hander (like warlocks have for their pet and I think also warriors have something like that?). It would solve 99% of we-want-2h-enhancement threads that show up on every WoW-related forum on a daily basis.
