View Full Version : Gemming for DK tanking

12-27-2008, 08:29 PM
If someone's already asked this, then apologies, if you could direct me to the thread, it would be great. I'm looking for a list of optimal gems for DK tanks (frost if spec makes any difference). Can anyone help me out?

My Logic behind gem's is a priority list rather than optimization. This may vary depending on itemization.

1. Def (If not capped)
2. Hit / Exp (If DW tanking)
3. Stam / Avoidance (If socket bonus warrants)
4. Straight Stam (If 1 -3 are fulfilled)

Syuivil's list is pretty good, except I'd say expertise second (behind def), and that doesn't matter if you're DW or 2H.

I wouldn't gem for hit unless you're going for an extreme threat set of sorts, or dual wielding.
