Dual Wield?

Death Knight
Has anybody tested DW vs 2H for PVP yet?
Yeah just tried out 2H with Runic Empowerment, was fun topping the charts no real problems.
Then I tried DW with Runic Corruption and it was even better, I think Runic Corruption may be bugged, on a target dummy I was able to spam 12 Howling Blasts in a row just because I had proc after proc of 100% rune regeneration. Going to try it out with 2H in a little bit.
Just realized I never forged my hit out when I went from 2H to DW, woops, so as of right now I'd say DW is pretty awesome if Runic Corruption stays the way it is.
Are we using Obliterate now as DW?
nope
for 2H you pick Obliterate now over Frost Strike for KM procs.

RC is crazy good now that the buff stacks

perma 4.43 sec rune regen... (when lucky with procs)
I have been playing with this and RC seems to work well with very little down time.

My question is now that the changes are made how much hit should i be aiming for for DW? I think i have too much at 8.5%
So as DW frost its FS > Ob? Or what am i missing..

Wrong, thats only if your playing as masterfrost. Obliterate hits harder than both frost strike and howling blast.
Obliterate costs 2 runes, one howling blast plus one frost strike together is more than obliterate at the cost of only one rune.

You have no idea what you're talking about. Thanks.
WHY isn't there a dual wield talent available to DK's? Blizzard MUST know that so many people love dual wielding. The hit penalties for dual wielding are so high that most people will never carry on with it once they reach end game. It's basically just a way to "look cool" as you level, but it's deeply frustrating when you know that your hit chance is so low. I want a DUAL WIELD tank - who the hell wouldn't? You want to please your gamers Blizzard? Either remove the option for dual wielding entirely and stop getting our hopes up, or make DW viable (especially for tanks)!

In PvP, DW has stacked mastery like mad all of cata and with the levels of mastery it reaches HB/FS hit's harder than Obliterate on it's own. Especially with the new ToT.
