Blood was better because of DS's heal for the burst magic damage, and having VB as an extra all around cooldown.

Acclimation beat out the DS heal (which wasn't great) on aura fights. Yeah, not many people spec'd for it because you gave up Killing Machine to get it, but tank damage was junk anyway and Icy Slam meant you made more threat than you ever needed.

You could also get it fairly easily if you went with 2H frost, since that freed up NoCS and ToT. The damage was worse than DW, but hey, you could Shadowmourne.

Prot Warriors used to be able to dual wield and many would wear two weapons around town for looks. If you're going to be an !@#, at least be correct.


dual wield prot with 2 of the slow swords from nax was ridiculous dps on Loatheb, I remember doing like, 8-9k (Which, was insane for tanks)

I really don't know why they took it away from prot.

They've changed all of our main abilities to require a shield anyway

This is actually the build I used - to be fair, it was Shadow's Edge, not Shadowmourne, but the idea was the same.

I'm going to get some one hand tank weapons and DW tank in dungeons just to make you guys mad.

See you in the 5mans! :D

Well, to be fair, in dungeons most of your damage comes from diseases and blood boil anyway, so... go nuts, I guess?

(I find that between autoattacks, BB, D&D, BP, and FF I only have about 30% of my damage coming from weapon strikes.)
