It seems like almost every heroic has an equivalent 2H for my ret paladin, yet the only prot-friendly weapon in all of heroics is Ook's Hozen Handslicer.

Except Yan-Zhu's epic, but that doesn't actually exist, let's be real.

there really isn't any tank two handers. the only people who really tank with two handers are blood dk's. and in their case they just reforge dps weapons.

I should've been more specific - I was talking about one-handers. My main spec is prot with a ret OS and it's frustrating to have 50 options for my OS and one for MS.

I see tanks using this when I queue as dps:

I've heard a few tanks saying that in a lot of cases DPS weapons can very well be used as tank weapons now. Hell, any 2H with mastery for at least DKs, then of course agi polearms for bears and brews, not sure how good mastery is for both prots but the same rule may still apply.

Yeah, I know dodge and parry are actually the least useful tank stats for a prot paladin these days. Reaching the hit/hard expertise caps and then haste/mastery are more important, and since those are also in line with DPS weapons we can really use any 1H weapon with strength O_o
Please change your vector and move to a different coordinate because this quadrant is off limits.

Once a day you queue for the brewery, do the first boss, then drop group.
Doesn't help get tanks into dungeons all that much really.
One day dude, I'm just gonna get off the bus, and I'm gonna run in the woods and never come back, and when I come back I'm gonna be the knife master!

That would WORK, but crit is pointless.
