i have the dodge sigil and i know im under hit and exp cap any sugestions are more then welcome thank you

change your dodge stamina gem into expertise stamina, use sigil of awareness (DS, OB and SS damage). You are at hit cap with 8% won't ever reach spell hitcap with any defspecc / equip. Use expertise Food for more exp. You should be able to do some decent threat already. What's your rotation?

IT-PS-BS-BS-OB-FS-FS then if something has proced i use it

and would i want to use Sigil of the Vengeful Heart - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=45254) over the sigil of awareness

swiched rings and 2 gems and i got myself to exp cap

Awareness seems to be better than Vengeful, at least EJ says that. The thing about frost strike is, that it only makes decent TPS when it crits (afaik). So Runestrike > FS (but I think you know that). Your rotation looks fine, you'll continue with OB OB and start over again, don't you?

yea depending on runes being up

In what situations are you having trouble keeping aggro? Single target or AOE? Against relatively equivalent geared folks or people under your gear score or people over your gear score? Is it situational or every pull? What dungeon(s)?

umm equally geared peeps and its usually when i was missing cause i was under exp cap and i think it was on both boss and aoe pulls

FYI: If you are missing hits it is hit rating you need, if you are being dodged/parried it is expertise.


Your gear is REALLY good. Yet you are still using a Frost 2h spec. Any specific reasons you are still clinging to it?

Frost does not scale as well with gear...you would probably notice a massive increase in your threat if you switched to Blood, at least on single/dual targets. You could keep that Frost spec for AoE, or you could learn to tank like a warrior and switch targets to hold aggro in Blood. If you want a great Blood spec which is carrying myself and our main DK Tank through Uld in style, check out my Armory from my character tab.
