which is all the more reason to have a strong base stat enchant on only 2hd weapons
you can balance the 2 tanks and 1 melee around it
just like you balance DK tanking around a 2hd weapon and shield tanks around a 1hd

basically which would be easier
add an enchant that is a must have for druids and monks or try to balance tanks around dual procs?
(knowing blizzard they will stick with dw tanking and screw with tank balance, making monks with a must have or dont touch class)

Please, correct me if I'm wrong (with sources if possible), but I was under the impression the reason we no longer have a DW DK tank is because they decided Blood was the optimal tank spec (which was primarily designed as a 2h spec.) I don't recall reading anything about having issues balancing a DW tank (and enchants are somewhat moot anyway, since DKs use Runeweapon enchants.)

Also, for proc enchants, having a shared internal cd would prevent double stacking with DW weaps. Though this hasn't been an issue for rogues/shaman/wars (to my knowledge) when dpsing, so I can't imagine it would change too much for tanks (unless it's a seriously OP proc anyway.)

Oh god void shift makes me seriously consider going back to my priest. The opportunities for griefing are so delicious, even with the heal on it. Also Druid leap of faith hilarity. Now there's TWICE the opportunity to piss off raid members!

With all the hunter changes, and the way the new talents and glyphs will be working, I'm likely going to spec BM/BM, with one dugeon/raid spec, and another the soloing/farming spec. There are now enough nice choices with glyphs and such that it seems a good way to go.

If Blizz kicks BM to the bottom of the pile again, I just won't care anymore.

And for you hunters out there, the new porcupines, cranes, tigers, and turtles are tameable now. Doesn't look like the other beasts will be tameable (no diets).

The procupines are the coolest of the new pets, cranes a close second.

You called?

Seriously, I can't wait for a spectral crane or something like that.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

There are already "god" versions of the tiger, yak, crane and I think turtle in the game files, all for npcs. No word yet on spirit-beast versions of any of them.

I'll be purging a lot. Mainly because since you can pick a spec for your pets now, it really all comes down to the buffs they bring, and what models you like.

I'm dropping by just to say I'm completely disappointed in the huge dumbing down process the Shadow priest has suffered from MoP so far.
