Hi.

I'm usually A duel-wield tanker, but i want 2 change to 2h many people are annoying me with this.

So I was thinking what's goes better for alot of aggro and aoe aggro?

Blood or Frost?

If so can I have the rotations for single mob, and aoe mobs rotation?

Please.

Thank u very much.

Frost right now is the best tank spec for everything as a DK.
The spec goes something like this Talent Calculator - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#j0ghZhtx0AbI0c0iost0gh:kawmVM)
Single Target rotation: IT – PS – OB – BS – BS - Dump – OB – OB – PS – IT
Aoe Rotation: DnD – IT – PS – PT – BB - Dump – HB – BB

Once again Tooze you are making black and white statements without any evidence to back it up. Why exactly do you think Frost is the best tanking spec? Each tree has its strengths and weaknesses, just because you like one tree over others does not automatically qualify it as #1.

Please supply reasons, numbers, or even anecdotal evidence. Try to be constructive with your comments and share your insights so others might benefit.

Salolito, judging from your armory, looks like you're in Ulduar. Here's Ensidia's DK tank's writeup on DK tanking uld (http://www.ensidia.com/home/guides/tanking-death-knight/).

For lazy Frost tanks like me (at least till I get to Ulduar), I use Glyph of Howling Blast and skip PS and Pest on AoE pulls (since the only Frost ability that benefits from Blood Plague is Oblit). This build (http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#j0EGZhxx0NbI0f0iost0x:Tawm0M), this rotation:

AoE: HB -> BB -> DnD -> Dump -> OB/HB/BB/BS/Dump as necessary
Single: IT -> PS -> BS -> BS -> OB -> Dump -> repeat as necessary

3/3 Scent of Blood makes up for the lack of Glyph of Frost Strike. Every other talent maximizes dmg or avoidance. With Glyph of HB, don't need Epidemic, and HB + BB is enough that you don't need Morbidity either. Dunno how that's gonna work in Ulduar though.
