Dec 28th 2011 12:06PM It's pretty commonly known that DW is way ahead of 2H frost. (See EJ, yesterdays Lichborne column). I personally gained about 3k dps switching from 2h to DW in Firelands ( and that was going from a 378 2h down to the 368 one hand crafted axes). I thought my DPS was pretty good as 2h until I saw DW dks with Troll gear doing almost as much DPS as I was in almost full FL gear which lead me to make the switch. The couple of 2h frost DKs I've run across in LFR with similar gear as myself have been about 10 to 15% behind me. I don't know what your definition of competitive might be.
Dec 28th 2011 11:26AM Will Blizzard ever fix 2h Frost's DPS to be closer in line with DW frost and Unholy?
Dec 27th 2011 6:30PM I eventually caved and went back to DW midway through Firelands, but the downtime it is still prone to is irritating. I have yet to fully understand why Blizz didn't reverse the MotFW nerf when it appeared 2h was lagging so far behind. It's doubtful it would put 2H above DW but it would at least close the gap between the specs. I don't understand what possible reason there could be not to make the change unless there is just some reason to artificially make most players choose DW because of weapon drop distribution. Even then, it doesn't make much sense to offer the choice within the tree in the first place.

Dec 25th 2011 6:32PM Yes please
Dec 21st 2011 6:42PM I could put that use.
Dec 19th 2011 8:42PM This would be amazing as a gift to my daughter.
Dec 15th 2011 6:37PM I'll give the little guy a good home
Dec 15th 2011 11:35AM Questions for the queue:
What happens to the LFR version of Dragon Soul when we've moved on to MoP. Sure, once we hit MoP we'll be geared enough to go back and kill regular and heroic fairly easily, but I ask for grabbing items for transmogrification purposes. The weapons from DS have very different looks on each difficulty and the LFR versions may match future gear sets better than others. In the same vein, will the class restrictions be lifted at some point so transmogrification can be used by other classes (No'Kaled on other axes for example.)
What do you think are the most popular items are for transmogrification? Maybe someone will create an API that will read that for each class and what not.
Dec 13th 2011 9:59PM Yeah Kylenne, re read what I said. Of course it probably wont happen like that for a lot of people but in a few weeks people will stop getting stuff from LFR as upgrades and will likely start grabbing stuff on greed roles. The amount of good players that will be running LFR will drop if they start running out of reasons to go. I would never take an upgrade from someone just for looks.
