They aren't killing DW, the problem theyre having right now is how can they fix the scaling of 2h without inflating DW
Short of splitting talents to do different things when dual wielding versus using a two hander, I can't see a solution to 2h dps (short of buffing the strikes, which is a bad road to go down for pvp for obvious reasons) that doesn't inflate dw dps equally if not substantially more.
KM on a PPM won't kill the spec. It will just put the disparity between DW and 2h to rest. If anything, 2h will proc KM a bit more frequently as a result. Assuming it works like most ppms and occurs off of instant attacks too, deep frost 2h may literally start drowning in KC procs. We're talking 28.333% chance to proc KC on any given strike or auto attack, which emulates a crit chance of greater than 56.666% with current KC (because current doesn't proc on autos). Of course, I haven't done the PTR yet, so my word isn't 100% reliable. Any confirmation if PTR KM procs on specials?
of course they can fix it easily just add another rune carving for 2h, this will negate teh scaling problem.
