0/32/39 used Gargoyle as well, so the nerf to that really hits all DKs except for those who were using Dancing Rune Weapon, but they didn't need a nerf.It seems to me that Blizzard doesn't want to nerf dual wielding very much at all. The prominence of 32/39 hasn't escaped them. Rather, it seems like they want to nip the spec in the bud before Ulduar-level weaponry makes it scale out of control. With the current crit-based Killing Machine proc, tier 8 gear and a no-cooldown Howling Blast could have serious balance implications. I still expect 32/39 to be right at the top of dps specs for DKs in the world of 3.08 live. Blizzard wants to somehow balance multiple dps specs to be viable. They've done a pretty good job so far with Death Knights (at least compared to other classes - hunters come to mind) so far. Nerfing a popular dps spec below the threshold of other current specs would just make the class more static, and that's not their intention.
