30-12-2008, 09:44 AM
Was bored yet again at work, and started to browse through the web. I first saw two new 2H weapons from BS, for tanking. And I wasnt sure which would be better. When would you stack parry over def as a DK? Imo the +def one is better, but maybe I got it wrong?

Anyways, here's some pics :p Can't wait! Also saw epic plate from wintergrasp marks, changes in titansteel BS items(added sockets) and +75 stamina weapon enchant from enchanters (DKs get a +def runeforge enchant aswell)

Blacksmith 2H tanking weapons
one with parry
and one with def

Changed to crit (from haste)
