My warrior co-tank on 25s once commented on why I was using a Frost Giant's Cleaver and I felt a little bad since it wasn't a 'tank' weapon and hurt survivability. I really do like the extra tps from the dps weapons though and this thread has helped give me reasons to use them.


Just have a chat with your co-tank. There are a few fights where a huge discrepancy in threat is suboptimal. Saurfang comes to mind :D
Hence you might want a tank-weapon handy in order to be able to LOWER your threat without trashing your rotation.
Personally, I prefer to use a salvation on myself in those situations.

Yeah, Gormok was hilarious right after ToC opened. That was before our Righteous Fury was lowered. I used to just auto-attack sometimes to not pull off the warrior when Hand of Salvation was down. Things have evened out more but this new weapon idea might be fun. :twisted:
