View Full Version : Improve current gear

Hi Guys

my first post here, just wondering if the fellow DK tankers out there could cast their eye over my current gear and stats, with the view to improving on what i have so far.

Currently I have just switched to frost to give it a wirl, mainly tanked in unholy, and have manage to do 8 bosses in uld 10 so far with out issuses.

My armory link is as follows, just like to add I think i logged out in blood presence, thats why health and armor are low, armor around 27k and health around 32k unbuffed

The World of Warcraft Armory (http://eu.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Thunderhorn&n=Deathdaddy)

I thank you all in advance

Gear wise, everything looks perfect. Gemming for stamina is about the best we can do for gems. Your spec looks solid for 10 mans. The only thing you have to worry about now is whether that next piece is an upgrade or not. And it looks like your pretty geared from ulduar 10 already minus the tier pieces.

Hopefully Iron Soul or another will drop for you soon. That's one of your biggest needs at the moment.

So I'd prioritize a new weapon -> Tier pieces -> Any gear where you won't lose any of your current stats (except maybe parry), but will gain defense, expertise, dodge, and hit.

I just read some of the math theory on parry and death knights and we are already overstacked with parry and it will continue to be the case in patch 3.2. So definitely replace all items with parry with an equal item that has dodge instead.

Actually parry is getting changed next patch, so it might not be a bad idea to hold onto those too.
It will still have a steeper curve on diminishing returns, so dodge will remain better if you have very high avoidance.
