A simple passive that adds Crit Damage and AS to 2-handers might work.
Don't think that's a good idea for a replacement.
See, the zerker through his Frenzy charge can already ignore Dex, and with a passive like this, he'd be able to skip Str as well.
Best/Easiest replacement skill would be a Bleed of some sort, unless a future class has something like it already of course.
"Skip" Strength is a bit extreme, but you're probably right.
Eviscerate already has a Bleed built into it. I guess it wouldn't be too bad as a passive, but it might make Eviscerate redundant when that passive is paired with, say, Ravage.
One of my early Death Knight specs had a whole tree based around a Bleed mechanic, but I scrapped that idea after a while.
Yeah coupled with Ravage would render Evis obsolete.
I was thinking for along the lines of a Bleed Mastery, passively improving Eviscerate, Savage Rush and Chain's Snares (Snare really should have a Bleed IMO) Bleed damage.
Bleed would only be added to normal attacks, not skills.
Provided that's even possible...
As far replacement skill, I'm having a dry spell ATM.
Yet I can't see that a simple buff towards BH in any way could fix it; it'll probably stay a 1ptWonder unless combined with something, and if buffed too high could be OP.
BH also doesn't trigger with ranged attacks, even half or 1/3 the % would cool.
