You want a DPS 2her.

Wondered about weapons recently myself and compiled the following list for our guild forums based on the follow premise:

Methodology
The damage range figures were generated using CTprofiles.net, based off a nekid Gada (my Dorf pally) which has the following (relevant) stats:

Strength: 107
Agility: 61
Melee: 300
Power: 374

Weapon proc's have been ignored as they cannot be described as reliable damage.

Damage Ranges:

1__[Dark Edge of Insanity]______________________353 - 475
2__[Sulfuras, Hand of Ragnaros]_________________328 - 478
3__[Grand Marshal's Glaive]_____________________350 - 469
4__[Grand Marshal's Battle Hammer]______________350 - 469
5__[Grand Marshal's Sunderer]__________________350 - 469
6__[Grand Marshal's Claymore]__________________350 - 469
7__[Ashkandi, Greatsword of the Brotherhood]______344 - 459
8__[Barb of the Sand Reaver]____________________323 - 437
9__[Zin'rokh, Destroyer of Worlds]________________317 - 417
10_[Neretzek, The Blood Drinker]_________________311 - 413
11_[Kalimdor's Revenge]________________________305 - 412
12_[Herald of Woe]_____________________________304 - 406
13_[Spinal Reaper]_____________________________302 - 405
14_[The Unstoppable Force]______________________286 - 404
15_[Drake Talon Cleaver]_______________________300 - 402
16_[Bonereaver's Edge]_________________________296 - 401
17_[Hammer of Ji'zhi]___________________________299 - 399
18_[Draconic Maul]_____________________________294 - 389
19_[Manslayer of the Qiraji]______________________294 - 385
20_[The Untamed Blade]_________________________282 - 380
21_[Obsidian Edged Blade]_______________________287 - 376
22_[Earthshaker]_______________________________274 - 362
23_[Draconic Avenger]__________________________269 - 358
24_[Halberd of Smiting]__________________________268 - 357
25_[Runeblade of Baron Rivendare]________________267 - 354
26_[Jeklik's Crusher]____________________________255 - 345
27_[Nightfall]__________________________________256 - 344

Averages (per swing, not DPS):

[Dark Edge of Insanity]____________________________414
[Grand Marshal's Glaive]__________________________409.5
[Grand Marshal's Battle Hammer]___________________409.5
[Grand Marshal's Sunderer]________________________409.5
[Grand Marshal's Claymore]________________________409.5
[Sulfuras, Hand of Ragnaros]_______________________403
[Ashkandi, Greatsword of the Brotherhood]___________401.5
[Barb of the Sand Reaver]__________________________380
[Zin'rokh, Destroyer of Worlds]______________________367
[Neretzek, The Blood Drinker]_______________________362
[Kalimdor's Revenge]_____________________________358.5
[Herald of Woe]__________________________________355
[Spinal Reaper]__________________________________353.5
[Drake Talon Cleaver]_____________________________351
[Hammer of Ji'zhi]________________________________349
[Bonereaver's Edge]______________________________348.5
[The Unstoppable Force]___________________________345
[Draconic Maul]__________________________________341.5
[Manslayer of the Qiraji]___________________________339.5
[Obsidian Edged Blade]____________________________331.5
[The Untamed Blade]______________________________331
[Earthshaker]____________________________________318
[Draconic Avenger]_______________________________313.5
[Halberd of Smiting]______________________________312.5
[Runeblade of Baron Rivendare]____________________310.5
[Jeklik's Crusher]_________________________________300
[Nightfall]________________________________________300

As you may have noticed DEoI is above HoR on the first list, despite HoR having a slightly higher top end in damage. I changed the placements for 1st and 2nd myself because the DEoI has a higher overall range while having a slightly lower top end figure.

Credits; Boggle.

However, after you include the proc, and - unless you are a dwarf paladin, +5 maces, sulfuras is and will remain to be, the best Paladin DPS 2h in the game until Naxxramas comes out, and even then, only replaced by Might of Menethil.

If you want to pick up a 2h DPS weapon I really would recommend only these;

[Dark Edge of Insanity]____________________________414 - C'Thun
[Sulfuras, Hand of Ragnaros]_______________________403 - Ragnaros
[Ashkandi, Greatsword of the Brotherhood]___________401.5 - Nefarion
[Zin'rokh, Destroyer of Worlds]______________________367 - Hakkar
[Herald of Woe]__________________________________355 - 3Drakes
[The Unstoppable Force]___________________________345 - Alterac Valley Reputation Reward.

The rest either falls below the level of which to be concerned with (since TUF is casually attainable), or isn't worth the DKP/Hassle of wrestling it out of the hands of the warriors or hunters.

So if you're gonna aim for anything, aim for those ;)
