View Full Version : Tanking Frost DW Tank Spec?

01-27-2010, 02:58 PM
I've just hit 80 on my Frost DK and would like to tank heroics with her when I have the gear. (I'm already Def capped but want a bit more stamina.)

I don't really need to hear "Oh, you should use a 2H for tanking" etc. etc. because I don't really expect to be tanking ICC, this is just for heroics and whatnot. (Fifth 80, third tank, don't really feel like raiding on all three. :P)

I'm just worried that I may not have the ideal spec. Is there any great guides y'all know about DW tanking?

Can't comment on your gear.
Your spec is missing Rime, Blood of the North.
Dump Merciless Combat.

This might be a better spec for you. http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#j0EhZhxe0A0I0c0fuzAo0x:ksaVmM the unused point can go almost anywhere.
I would recommend Frost Strike, Oblit, Icy Touch/Howling Blast for your majors, though others say Rune Strike, Oblit, Icy Touch/Howling Blast.

Oblit is a Must for ANY Frost DK regardless if they are DPS or Tanking.
