I play an arms warrior, I generally only PvP, but in doing so I have also developed at Protection spec for flag carrying during RBGs. I have no intentions on going back to PvE any time soon so I decided it's time to find a fix for warriors loosing dual wield in other specs than fury.
I will agree, arms does not need to dual wield, arms should always be the big slow precise smashing blows for a single 2h. Therefore, in my eyes ruling arms out of the race to regain dual wield. Why not protection, there was a time when dual wielding and spamming devastate as protection was viable dps, thus removing the ability from protection warriors.
There is a simple fix for that matter, give protection warriors a damage cut of 50% when not equipping a shield. Making it a non issue, dual wielding would not be viable in any way other then astetics.
No need to buff or change fury or arms, just adjust prot to have the abilities to dual wield again. I know I am one of millions of warriors, but I can't help but wonder if their are any other warriors out there with a couple of 1hs they want to display but they do not play fury.
Is there anyone else out there that has other solutions or ideas or just out right agrees with me? Could we see it make a return so I can stand proud in from out shrine with my warglaives, or a thunderfury in the future?
