Another WoW tank spec thread :( (in Off-topic)

Okay so since the dual spec came out I figured "Hey, might as well try to get back into tanking" and spent a while staring at the DK talent tree figuring out which one would be best for what and that's what I came up with. Think it'll work?

Ah DK Tanks. ;)


As for your Tree, drop Morbidity (with HB you won't be using DnD) and grab Scent of Blood.

You don't need Runic Power Mastery, that only necessary for Death Strike, Gargoyle and Dancing Rune Weapon.

Get Glacial Rot.

Chillblains and Hungering Cold are PvP Talents, you can drop those.

And get 5/5 Tundra Stalker.

Aside from that pretty decent tho?

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] May 7 2009 6:07 AM EDT


You've got Blade Barrier, Deflection, and the stuff in Frost (Firgid Death Plate, Improved IT and Toughness). And skipped the now rubbish Lichbourne, so it's all good.

Oh and Killing Machine is a muct keep! ;)

The next thing is to decide which rotation you want to use.

HB - Ob - Bs - Bs (with the HB glyph)


PS - IT - Ob - Bs - Bs

Sweet. Thanks for the advice ^ ^

NP! ;)

Bitterness was a Frost Tank from the release of Wrath. ;)

I'm going DPS now though (when I can get back on, stupid computers. :( )

Agotho still hasn't got that "</a>" thing figured out yet.

Lol if there's one thing that's driving me crazy tho is trying to get my gear back up again... Dumb me and selling some of it when I said I gave up on tanking lol.

SimplyNic May 7 2009 6:33 AM EDT

the <a href="website URL">Lol text here for quick link</ a> thing? Or I don't get what you mean Marl lol

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 7 2009 6:37 AM EDT

Indeed. But perhaps "<a href="link">Here!</a> [Bulk of text]" is easier on the eyes? ;)

really? I thought all dk tank specs use DnD? Its great aggro in an aoe, like a pally consecrate..

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] May 7 2009 10:32 AM EDT

Howling Blast is superior to DnD. Especially if Glyphed, as it applies Frost Fever (And is effected by Killing Machine and the other Frost Damage increasing Talents).

Frost Tanks don't need DnD any more. Not with HB and the new BB.
