View Full Version : Tanking Dk tank looking for some advice.

12-21-2009, 03:08 PM
Hello everybody, I am new to Tankspot. I wish I found this forum earlier when I was starting tanking, but oh well. I'm here on the count of a few things I need some advice on.

I know my gear is decent for me. I OT 3/4 ICC 25-man and OT/MT 3/4ICC 10.
I haven't done ToGC10 or ToGC 25 yet, I'm looking to start them tho.
I have never touch Ulduar since I dinged 80 when ToC came out.

Armory Link:
The World of Warcraft Armory (http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Gorefiend&n=Ibetrollin)

Now on to my problems:
1. I need more hit! I'm currently at 4.33% to hit
2. I'm almost Exp capped but not there. 20/26 Expertise. Looking for a better way to get those
3.My spec, just need a few others to tell me if my spec is bad/good.
4. Are my trinket's viable for what i'm raiding? +170 stam is good but... Is there better?
5. I have way to much defense! 574 defense. Is there a way to lower this?

Thanks for anyone who helps me!

hola and welcome to tankspot

1,2,4 and somewhat 5 can all be answered in this thread




for a quick boost to hit try

Snapper Extreme - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=42996#created-by)
Worg Tartare - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=44953#created-by)

for your third question it looks ok.. your spec that is. I do wonder why as a blood tank you have opted not to get rune tap. personally I would take at least one point out of scent of blood to get rune tap. I would also encourage the usage of Mark of blood.

for more complete answers on your spec read



and to get a good idea of ho you as a blood tank fit with other dk tanks.. and a lot o info about all three read


and yes you need to balance your defense but I cringe when somebody says there is to much.... but in order to get your hit/exp you will lose some of that as you re-itemize your gear
