Is the problem with getting aggro on everything, or more like you have the aggro and just die. Check your combat logs. What fights are you specifically talking about?

Not going to comment on the Blood spec, since I have never tanked as Blood and currently have no interest to do so.

Your Frost spec is all wonky, you have points in places you shouldn't.
is how you should spec as a 2H Frost Tank.

Also Frost DKs do not use Glyph of Death Strike, you use Glyph of Oblit, this is the core of Frost DKs, regardless of being a Tank or DPS.
For your other two glyphs:
use Icy Touch or Howling Blast
use Frost Strike or Rune Strike

Don't gem for Parry, if you are going to gem for Avoidance, gem for Defense or Dodge.

Your blood spec is alittle strange as well. It looks like your more concerned with doing DPS as a tank over survivability. Take a look at this:

This is a variation of the cookie cutter blood. I've mad a few changes to grab all of the CDs I can for the Festergut encounter however, I have no problem with aggro in blood. My DPS are smart and give me the 3 seconds I need to snap and lock in aggro. I do keep a frost 2hander spec around for heroics, but I rarely dust it off. I know I don't have some of the dps talents you do, but I stick to my rotation and avg around 3.4 dps on boss encounters without losing any survivability.

I've said it before, Satorri is a master and has all the information that you will ever need. There are many replies to this as well. Lots of knowledge in this link but I warn you...Grab some coffee and make sure your well rested. You will be there a while.

Wow it's awesome to hear another tank say that. I've unfortunately often heard tanks say Dodge sucks because it's already nerfed for ICC. The thing they don't realise is that it's 20%, so if you have more dodge than that you're actually avoiding some of the hits. I still think it's good to have avoidance as well as stamina and not really stack just Stam.

Anyway it was refreshing to see your comment.
