    Archaeology 463 weapon(s) and a blood DK

    First of all I'm perfectly aware that 2 hand weapons in general are better than two 1 hand weapons. My question right now is if this stays true when the 1 hand weapon is several dozens ilevel higher than the 2 hand weapon. I'm talking about 2x http://www.wowhead.com/item=95391/mantid-sky-reaver compared to most level swords which are of an far lower ilevel here.

    And does anyone know if you can "rune forge" them or if I would have to go a normal enchant?

    Seeing how you don't benefit from extra dmg for survivability,it would be better.

    I know its a genuine question, but is getting quite frustrating that people still think you can DW tank in Blood and DW DPS as Unholy.

    I mean its been what 3 years since DW was viable for any other spec besides Frost and you still get threads like these pop up nearly everyday.

    So let me explain it to you.

    DW Frost works cause of the Passive Talent "Threat of Thassarian" - where your Frost Strike is buffed by 40% and you hit with your off hand weapon for all your special attacks.

    The other 2 specs don't have that talent and therefore all special attacks are base on "Main-Hand" weapon damage.

    Therefore even if you had 2 of those swords, it still wouldn't be better since most of the MoP greens and blues 2-Handers have around 9K+ Weapon Damage.

    The only way 2 1-Handers would work was if there was more than 75+ ilevel disparity between the weapons. But the best way to look at it is the "pure" damage on the weapons. If a 2-H weapon has more damage than any of the 1-H regardless of their respective ilevels, then the 2-H is always better since all attacks for Blood and Unholy is base of main hand weapon damage.

    DKs can runeforge all their weapons.

    Use the Agility one, I used it for my Dk, the sheer weapon damage makes up the difference.

    Get one of the blue ilvl 450 BoE 2h maces. They trump the 463 1h weapons.

    For Blood you get alot of free AP from vengeance so you don't need strength weapons - just use the agility polearm from panda archaeology

    This is technically a dw blood thread which we lock

    As others have suggested, there are plenty of equivalent ilvl 2h that offer just as much.
