Is this at all plausible in end-game tanking.

I was frost for Naxx and most of Ulduar and really miss the play style.

I'll link armory for gear and such.

I wonder if I have missed something lately, but why wouldnt frost still be viable to tank end game content in?

Sure I have yet to visit ICC but I have tanked ToC as frost and didnt notice me having a harder time than other tanks.

Your gear and the frost spec is just fine. Usually its recommended to take at-least 1 point in Scent of Blood but if you can do fine without it, its cool.

Frost is actually my favorite tree to tank with a DK as it gives extra mitigation and snap aoe threat. THe only drawback is UA only works as a CD for physical dmg bosses.

Well, I'll change my spec and not get Threat/Imp DW, since I will be using a two-hander.

Just wondering if you had to DW to go frost at this point.

Many Frost Tanks still use a 2H weapon.
Especially since the hit cap requirement is much lower.
