DK Tanking Spec:
I need a DW Tanking spec, I would love it if someone came along and gave me one.
Thanks for readin. [:
every tree can tank. frost has decent damage decreasing talents and later even magic dm reduction. its up to you what tree you chose i even saw DPS + Tank builds in one wich just needed to change equip
oh no, I know that. But I mean decent builds.
hmm i like this spec The World of Warcraft Armory
it has + toughness, dodge, and parry...it has a lowered cd on dnd...and it has a ghoul for added dps...anti magic zone...added damage to diseases...etc
keeps threat easily
lol tank with ghoul
ok here my experience ...
tanked every boss in WOTLK no matter 10 or 25 as a DK
i tried several speccs
to summ up:
> if you are going for tanking in non heros / easy heros, a unholy specc is probably the best choise, because you can switch over to your dmg gear and go for good solo farming
> if you are going for tanking difficult heros / naxx 10,25 / maly 10,25 ice should be your choicse, because ice is the specc which keeps you alive and doesn't go for things like "good damage", you don't need this as a high end content tank (means, making dmg is not your role, your role is to survive and hold aggro)
(sorry can't provide you a real talent calculator because they are all blocked in my company )
well to my specc ...
if you want, you can leave away hungering cold and go for 3 points in runic power mastery.
have to admit, you won't have the chance to use hungering cold that often because in general you are going through instances together with some AOE classes and dmg breakes the ice blocks hungering cold is causing
y ice and not unholy for high end content?
because of the frost aura and howling blast
how to pull?
run over to a mob group, use death and declay, icy touch one of them, plague strike the same one, pestilence, blood tap, howling blast and blood boil
needs some traning, but will do just fine
when tanking single targets (maly 4 example) go for blood strike to keep your blood runes down and use obliterate and rune strike to keep the aggro
just my 2 cents
