Hi guys i am currently leveling a Dk and once i hit 80 i am going to make him a frost tank.
I have looked up different specs and advice but here is the build i was thinking of rolling with

The World of Warcraft Armory (http://www.wowarmory.com/talent-calc.xml?cid=6&tal=0050320000000000000000000000305050003520330023 012031013510052210000000000000000000000000)

Give me any advice as to what points i should take out or if im missing anything

Thanks for the advice

The spec you've posted looks "ok" it's been a long time since i was tanking hcs withough raid gear so I can't really say if the spec needs to be different for that (although i can see why you put 2/3 points in imp. DnD as it's nice AoE threat) although i would move the 1 point in imp. DG to either DnD or Blade Armor as well as the 2 points in imp. 2H to BA aswell

If you are going to move on to raiding i suggest a spec more like: Talent Calculator - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#j0EhZhgx0AbIoc0buzAo0g)

2) your spec is not an ideal one but for heroics it wil work more than sufficiently.
Bladed armor should be added as a tank you have a lot of armor and thus this is a key threat ability.
hungering cold is mainly a pvp ability.
epidemic, morbidity and unholy command i consider icing talents, they are nice but often you can find better use for the points.
Other than that rock on!

As a side note Dk2 handed tanks while still more than viable, fall behind other 2 handed tanks (blood, unholy) if you want to run as frost I recomend trying dual wielding. not a demand mind you 2 handed frost still works in 5 man and raid settings. I just find its not as good as the other three options.
