Frost DK- Oblit with 2H, swap DW for RP dump?

Death Knight
we know that obliterate hits much harder as 2H and froststrike much harder with DW, swapping weapons in combat costs 1 gcd and doesnt reset your rp. even with a lost GCD and swingtimer reset this seems like a dps increase, or at least more burst in pvp. Has any1 tried using macro to swap back n forth between 2h and dw to see if this is more dps?

you also have the option to not swap if u are gcd capped for example.

just did some testing, swapping also doesn't take away your FC proc.
Do you really think if this were viable no one would have thought of it yet?

You lose the bonus of Threat of Thassarian and Might of the Frozen Wastes for 30 seconds after switching weapons in combat. So no, this doesn't work as well as you want it to.

If you have a weapon with Fallen Crusader and a weapon with the disarm time reducer (two 2h's for example) does that make you lose Might of the Frozen Wastes? I remember hearing one season you should have the FC for burst and the disarm time reducer for everyday use.

Don't know if it holds true now or not.
you forget that frost strike hits hard because of the masterfrost build, which isnt as viable with a 2h

2h and dw have different statweights and weapon swapping in combat puts the buffs for weapon specializations on a 30 second cd

Just want to knip this in the bud and clarify..

Swapping weapons will put a cooldown on Threat of Thessarian and Might of the Frozen Wastes, something like 30 seconds.

If you swap weapons, you will have NO bonus to either Obliterate, Frost Strike or anything else the tooltip says.

Depends on the justification of setting said kittens on fire.

Dual-weild Blood tanking.

And that is very much acceptable reasoning, however, the context in which you flipped that table was not.

What would happen if I were to say "Dual-weild Blood tanking." in the mirror three times in a mirror with the lights off?
