Back story, I typically play 2s and 3s.

So, I am having a bit of an issue deciding on where to go with respect to my DK. Please understand I am presently playing casually, but I do intend to start working on my rating moving forward.

Here's the deal: Dual wield or 2H?

The reason I ask, is presently I am without a PVP weapon. As a result, I use my PVE weapons. I presently have 2 510 Elgions, or a 496 Starshatter.

Being of the classic train of thought I originally didn't even consider DW, as the obvious issues with Necrotic Strike. However, with there being such a large disparity in the ilvl, I gave my DW a shot. I noticed an immediate improvement in output (masterfrost 2/ BT vs 2H OB centric rotations).

However, with the swap to PVP weapons I'll take a rather large ilvl hit, and I am not sure if the increased scaling from mastery with DW +razorice would outbalance the reported scaling of PVP power with 2H nectoric strike absorbs

Perhaps a pro/con list? Anyone who has any insight on the matter care to chime in?

Thank you in advance.

Get the 2h weapon so you can try out unholy, it is much more effective in Arena as Frost. Also i would love to try out dw with t2 arena weapons, just for fun. I remember playing dw pre patch of mop. I enjoyed it.
