I've had the same question before. Spent 200g trying to find the perfect spec and eventually, tundra stalk+death coil comes out on top. Might do less than 5 points in impurity, but when everything else is also doing 10% more dmg, its more dps overall. Anyways, here is my armory, you can check my build there,http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Maelstrom&n=Blzestalker
So the fact that you respecced 4 times for Dual Wielding makes you an expert?
I've respecced over 40 times, 30 of which were on trying out a various Dual Wield specs.
Frost Strike hits and crits harder than Death Coil if you have a slow weapon. FS Damage = (((AP/14)*2.2)+150+Weap Damage)*1.3). Yes, it will eat some KM procs, but the fact is HB alone will not eat all your KM procs and FS will not eat so many KM procs that it will gimp your spec.
The rotation for 3.0.8 will be PS IT BS BS HB Rune Dump HBx3. This rotation generates 10 25 10 10 20x4 RP, a total of 135 RP. This gives you 4 Frost Strikes at 32 RP (128 RP) with 7 RP left over, meaning every 5 rotations you will be able to an additional Frost Strike. Or this gives 3 Death Coils at 40 RP (120 RP) with 15 RP left over, giving a 4th Death Coil every 3 rotations. Roughly 4.2 FS per rotation vs 3.333 DC per rotation. Even with a fast weapon, 1.6 or faster, FS will hit as hard and crit harder than Death Coil, so it does much more damage per RP.
To figure out how many KM procs you will lose by using FS over DC simply figure out the number of white attacks between each KM eating ability. IT HB and FS.
In my opinion, 0/44/27, 11/50/10, 10/31/30, and 0/50/21 will be better specs than 0/32/39 next patch. Blood/Frost may be viable. 21/50 or 23/48.
One last thing, the only reason to get Tundra Stalker is if you're going to use FS. Impurity benefits HB and DC more than TS does.http://www.wowarmory.com/character-talents.xml?r=Staghelm&n=Erismar
