Polearms for DKs
Return to board index
Howdy there, I havent seen a whole lot of DKs using polearms, and I was wondering if there was a reason?
good for DKs?
It's more of a feral druid stat stick. The crit and haste rating are nice as well as the 200 AP but thats about it.
You want to look for weapons with str/sta on them.
Its not a feral druid stat stick, many items have those stats, but are hidden for non-druids. This could also be considered a hunter melee weap. It could work for a DK, but it would be more prefered to get your AP from strength if possible. Now honestly, if its giving you more AP than your weapon is (strength x2), take it. The agility is more armor and crit, it has crit on its own, and it does fairly solid damage.
So yes, it can be a DK weapon, but I would check other weapons of other kinds of its level to compare how the stats and damage compare.
Most polearms are itemised better for hunters or druids, as they tend to feature agility and AP. We prefer str and crit, though we can use the polearms if they're better than what we have at the time.
is an example of a decent polearm for a DK, though it's a tanking weapon more than a DPS one.
and I was wondering if there was a reason?
Yes, there is a reason - most of polearms are not designed for DKs. Can you use it if you want? Yes, sure, but there will be a better sword for you and there might not be a better weapon for hunter.
I'm using saliva corroded pike as my tanking weapon right now, havent been able to get jack from naxx yet >.<
Lol Visas, I'm the exact opposite been running H VH almost Daily for the pike and nothing, but everything drops in naxx, sitting with a
right now. Waiting for
I have the saliva corroded pike right now for tanking, and titansteel destroyer for whatever else. I intend to grab a polearm after my guild hunters have theirs to upgrade my tanking weapon. There aren't really tanking stat 2handers, but polearms tend to be closer because of the AGI.
Thanks for the responses guys (or girls!)
Would you pick
or vice versa?
A little off topic: Which DW rep reward items are the best for a DW spec? Thanks for the help :)
