Frost DW with Blood Tap is doing as much, if not more dps than 2H, and the rotation is way more consistent with less waiting on procs. Recent Simcraft runs have DW + BT as top DK dps followed by 2H and then Unholy. I played 2H until DW+BT was suggested on EJ's forums (Frost DPS 5.0.4 - The Cold Hand of Death, go to page 4 and look for a post from Haakon on 10/16, he refers to Magdalena on Acherus, the string of posts starts there and progresses over the next several pages) and the difference in the rotation is huge and imho much less frustrating due to long waits (> 2 secs) for procs. The drawback is that it's bad enough waiting to get a single 2H weapon drop nevermind waiting on getting 2 good DW weapons. Another bonus was that my aoe rotation differs very little from my single target rotation due to the heavy use of Howling Blast. DW+BT does not play exactly like Masterfrost and is really easy to reforge for since Mastery and Haste are essentially equally rated after Strength/Hit/Expertise or course. By stacking my Blood charges and using Lich/Epi I have no periods of waiting (read as "never") on runes, runic power or procs even in longer fights like in Terrace.
This seems very interesting. I've been checking out Frost DKs in top guilds, though, and this seems to have not really caught on yet - http://us.battle.net...ruciel/advanced
are the only two I've found out of the ~30 or so that I looked at. Why do you think this is? Just the extra loot requirement?
Anyway, keeping an eye on it and I'll be sure to add it to the guide if it turns out to truly be viable.
