View Full Version : Tanking DK Threat 25 man Heroic

So i need to know what is the best opener moves on raid bosses for threat. I have decent gear and my mitigation is good but i am behind on threat especially with the very high dps. I know in cata it'll be a different story but i feel a little stupid when the dps pulls off of me until i can get like 5 RS off.

what I do, is open with death strike, then 2 heart strikes, then a death strike ( with RS's in between of course). Also, I pop DRW before I do my first RS for the fight. This enables you to get a nice lead going.

I'd usually heart strike twice then death strike with RS inbetween if it is procc'd, or use death coil if it is not. Pretty much what Biscoin said, just a slightly different order. O.o

You can also use a taunt, just to guarantee that the boss starts stacking your vengeance.
