Sep 15th 2010 3:10AM To be honest, I don't get it why Death Knights even should be dual wielding. Sure, it's a great alternative, because all plate dps want slow 2-handed weapons (except for fury warriors in cata maybe), but I personnaly don't get it. I mean if you read something about Death Knights, it's always about this evil force, wielding huge runeblades etc., not two small maces and deliviring quick small blows to the enemy.
I mean, look at the Lich King, wielding a huge runeblade. Now that's always how I saw Death Knights. Can you immagine someone him using little weapons, quick hitting and dancing around the target like a rogue?
That's just my opinion, I don't think one handed weapons fit the Death Knight class, lorewise. But I guess that's not really important, it's more about gameplay, in which it brings some desired change for some players.
