DK tanks are fine. We take a little more skill than Druids and Pallies to be competent tanks. Overgeared block tanks are OP in heroics. That doesn't mean we can't do them or are bad tanks.

Stat caps are the same for dps as tanks: 8% hit and 26 Expertise. Strength is your primary DPS stat for all specs. The other stat rankings depend on your spec. Find you favorite DPS site (even the WoW forums) and do some research.

Yes strength is the thing to stacks. Dont stack AP since is doesnt scale as well.

People come here for help, as that is what this section is for. I see no need to be a jerk. Most people don't like DK tanks because there are a lot of DKs that don't know how to play the class. If you know what you are doing DKs make good tanks.
