    Death Knight Tanking

    I know it's common for Death Knights to use a 2H while tanking but I don't see why they shouldn't use two 1H. No 2H in the game has parry or dodge so why don't they just use two 1H with dodge or parry?

    Death Knights have a good avoidance without the "real" tanking weapons. I don't go that much into WoW maths and everything, but I think we put a lower TPS because our abilities will hit only with the main hand, but I may also be wrong.

    It's not optimal, but it's within the realm of possibility. I haven't tried it since Blood became the dedicated tanking tree, but honestly I don't think the loss of threat would be all that bad; currently, after the first couple gcds I have an insurmountable threat lead over the dps.

    If you want to continue the discussion with new info, please do so in the thread I linked above.

    Currently there's no reason whatsoever to DW tank.
