I just started tanking on my DK, last tuesday and I can't really seem to get it right :S
It seems like I need alot of healing even through I'm def capped... I got 33,6k unbuffed and 28,5% dodge and 19,20'ish parry... I use 40 stamina and str food (Got agility, not sure if they give dodge to DK's) and Defense and hp flasks
Could someone experience tell me what to improve, talents, gear, gems, enchants and other stuff :)

I would like to know what rotations I should use for both multi and single targets :)

My single: Death n' Decay, Icy touch, Plague strike, Obliterate / Blood strike (Howling blast and Rune strike when they are ready / free)

My multi: Death n' Decay, Icy touch, Plague strike, Pestience (Blood tap and blood boil), Howling blast / Obliterate, blood boil (Rune strike and howling blast, when they are ready / free)

Tell me if anything needs an improvement and your opnion on what raids I should be able to handle ( MT and OT) :-)

I hope you guys will help me ;)

There is too much wrong with your spec, gear and glyphs for a quick answer. Luckily, DKs have a really good resource here on tankspot that explains everything you need to know to get started.

Read Satorri's guide. It will explain rotations, specs and glyphs. Come back if you have more questions.

Pretty much what he said. Way too much to put down on what needs to be fixed. You have several dps pieces of gear.

IF YOU CAN RETURN IT, Take the Key back and get the Cloak instead.

Agree on the cloak and you need another tank ring.

Actually, your spec is not really terrible. Just some tweaks. I wouldn't gem for dodge; I'd gem for hit or expertise; in your case your expertise is very low. Talent wise, I'd take the point out of Epidemic and a point from Killing Machine and put them into Merciless Combat. You may want to pull points from Morbidity and put 2 into Scent of Blood or Chill of the Grave (I like Morbidity, so I wouldn't); For glyphs, I'd change out DnD and IBF for Unbreakable Armor and Icy Touch (or Obliterate). Lastly, you might want a tanking Sigil. Other then that, I don't see what's so horrible.
