People go 2h because they offspec blood or unholy. If you do neither, there is no reason to not go DW.

Dw is the way to go if you want to PVP in frost. Your survivability is not all that great, and exspect to get trained alot because of said survivability issues.

DW Frost Spec/unholy pres in mostly Cata gear, you will run between 3.9kdps to 10k dps depending on your luck(KM Procs) and if you get trained or massed CCed.

I found that if you stack Mastery for DW Frost PVP build, your FS will hit in between 9k to 18k when KMed. Howling blast between 8k to 15k on primary target. Oblit only on low health/low armor people or undergeared people.

Best rotation for frost that I have found is 2x howling/2 necronic strikes/3 frost stikes, use your free HB when up, use your other abilitie as needed, remember to switch to 2 Death strike or 2 Oblit/2 frost/2 necronic strike rotation for Fallen crusader proc.

I play Frost for PVP ATM, but Unholy is the spec of choice for most arena, but it too has the survivability Issues just not as bad as frost.

The biggest factors between the two from an rbg perspective:

-do you ever flag carry? If yes, buy the 2h.

-do you ever arena? If yes, buy the 2h do you can go unholy (typically the better spec for most comps)

-Are you willing to pay a ludicrous amount of conquest points in order to be DW? (4900 for both main hand and offhand, since we don't get a "true" offhand like rogues)

-can you handle dual weild's different pace? (try it out with a ruthless honor weapon)

Personally I prefer dw on my dk, but I don't arena, don't fc, and basically ONLY play in bgs where the priority is spamming howling to aoe cleave which favors dw ever so slightly gearwise.
