Yes. Yes it is.

Unholy don't have Threat of Thassarian which makes it complete and utter !@#$ as DW.

As the above said, you do not play DW Unholy at all.

It does not have a 'Threat of Thassarian' type of buff (i.e. making your OH hit too). Not only that, but the only thing which made it viable was Sudden Doom proccing from your OH as well, and that was removed.

Last I checked you needed a weapon difference of 2H 450 to 1hx2 of 545 to even think of using it. So unless that's your weapon choices I wouldn't bother.

Why not just add Threat of Thassarian as a passive for all 3 specs?

Would the mechanics of blood and unholy still favor the 2h weapon build or could one start considering taking the 2 X 1H approach?

Although I stated in my reply up there that it's pretty !@#$, you actually get some pretty nasty white damage from Dw. It's still pretty bad but with a Threat of Thassarian variant Dw would probably take over because of the white damage and faster procs.

whatever you say, Unholy is b far the most entertaining to level up. (couldn't care less about a little more dps for half the fun)

Dual wield scales inherently better than 2-hander. The mechanic that does that dates back to vanilla and it is obvious that blizzard is not interested in changing that. This is why historically when a spec had the ability to use a 2 hander or dual wield, dual wield was always the choice.
This is the reason why they needed to make frost use different skills based on weapon to be able to balance the two..and is the ONLY spec ever that actually has a choice between dual-wield and 2 hander and can use two handers because it was thrown as a boon to people that wanted to use 2handers without having to manage a pet after blood became a pure tanking tree.

The moment threat of thassarian is introduced for the other two specs dual wield becomes the norm for both unholy and blood unless they go and radically redesign the specs to make it a choice.

I'm afraid you'll need 1 free hand to cast your death coils.

And a very strong arm to wield your 2-hander :p
