    Dual wield question

    I haven't dual wielded in a long time I've been 2hand since I came back and had a quick question. Do you want the stronger weapon in your off hand or main hand? .. Sorry newb question

    Stronger avg damage ((min+max)/2) in the main hand since the off hand deals reduced damage.
    Armories:
    Pally: Chiaki
    Dk: Telare
    Warrior: Irlida

    Just as a small point to note though. 5.2 buffed 2h so DW is now the weakest of the 3 DPS builds.

    I know 2H frost was buffed a lot, but I really like the feel of the Dual wield play style over 2H

    You forget DW got buffed as well, 10% more frost damage to ToT (now 50%), so DW deals 40% more damage then 2h with Frost Strike (ToT + Razorice + even more with mastery // Motfw bonus taken into consideration)

    Wasn't after turning you away just spotted the low post count and wasn't sure if you were perhaps riding a few older posts about DW's damage levels. If you prefer it, all power to you

    they both sim very close, 2h and dual wield.

    2h Simms slightly higher with the legendary meta due to slightly higher proc rate.

    if you read around and test it yourself, but tbh play what your most comfortable with, or alternatively run both specs and use depending on the fight type.
