Currently BOP, hopefully it's and error and they make it BOE.

wouldn't be too surprised if they remain BoP to prevent TG warrs from getting 2 nice weapons for the price of gold with 0 effort...i doubt the stats are overly beneficial for TG warrs (why would dps need parry?) but they are good dmg weapons to go with the destroyer...

That would force all DK's to go blacksmithing, and blizz has stated they don't want to pigeon hole people for a single item, *cough* skill herald *cough*.

With the new rune enchant "Rune of the Stoneskin Gargoyle", I'm thinking of going for the 2handed mace instead for more threat.

From the perspective of a warrior, were I to go TG the sword from the Ebon Blade quartermaster (the blue one) actually adds more dps due to the massive attack power, crit, etc. The raw dps increase here really doesn't appeal that much.


I'm glad they are doing this though, and not just so that I can get more business: I genuinely want DKs to have an easier time tanking so we see more DK tanks.
