    You need to be way more specific to get the responses youre looking for... PvE or PvP? Do you want to be a min/max type build or self sustaining? etc...

    Look at which moves use stamina vs. which use magicka. Stamina for damage, magicka for utility skills. Get a feel for how you like to play (essentially, what skills you like to use) and test everything out. Try to establish combinations with your skills and you'll be on your way to making your own unique build.

    As Grumpy has said: do some research, test skills out, look for synergies and rotations. That way, when changes do happen in the future, you'll be in a better position to adjust accordingly. You'll also likely get a much better build for your playstyle than an off-the-shelf one.

    I personally hate DW over 2hd.

    DW you will eventually end up in the spam steel tornado for the rest of your life mode. Plus, I really don't care for any of the other DW skills.

    2hd just seems more engaging to me. Plus you get Rally. But hey, do what you love, but I would suggest trying them both out. (2hd also seems to mesh better with NB skills, at least for me.)

    If you are looking at DW for meta purposes, just skill it up on the side then re-spec when you are at cap?

    There's ain interesting change to Blinding Fury in the DB PTS. A heal for 60% of the dmg done. Considering it is a DoT and also gets increase for mighty, and that 2 swords get mor dmg that 1 greatsword, and that silver leash (from FG) is going to be a gap closer and that there's a new buff called "lifesteal" (blood altar for the undaunted gives it), I'm guessing a lot of people is going to move from 2H to DW

    As a Stam DK, you can use stone giant and silver leash, then the lifesteal buff (that I suppose can be applied from poisons) and Blinding Fury FTW

    as a NB, all you need is ambush + SA + blinding fury
    The biggest problem within this game is the lack imagination on its player base and its developers...

    Hard to give up that Rally/Ambush/Cloak/Wrecking Blow ZOMG Maj Brutality + Empower + Auto Crit + WB combo though.

    I love the look of DW much better than stealthing around with a large 1hd wpn, I just cannot get immersed much with the DW skills.

    I am not looking at max/2% dps inc stuff here. I like to actually feel like I am doing something realistic, even in a video game. Steel Tornado just kills any immersion for me - like a Tasmanian devil with unlimited knives with a 40 ft radius...

    when the patch comes out, I'll give it a try. Some patches ago I made my stamknight work with DW in PvP using stone giant shrouded dagger and flurry. Now, with the changes to DKs, it seems it will be a very good option to retake that idea
