When monks start tanking, what will be the best setup for them, two one handed weapons, or a 2H weapon, or unarmed?

Same as a druid tank.

Everything is a hunter weapon, your statement is moot.

Most likely it will be a 2 hander, even though tanking with fist weapons will be cool but I don't see that happening if they followed the same model as blood death knights. Dual tanking is not optimal for rune generation.

--Monks aren't DKs. Energy generation comes just from Haste, and Chi from abilities, and Monk abilities don't use a % Weapon Damage. 1H vs 2H will only affect your white hits.

Totally want to make a dual-wield Monk tank then. I loved it when you could do Frost tanking with 2 1Hs back in Wrath.
