View Full Version : Death Knight Take the tanking plunge?

12-22-2010, 10:06 AM
So I've been DPS in the expansion so far and kind of hesitant to take the tanking plunge so far.

With the gear in the armory below, would it be worth it to tank normals, or wait to get more gear?



P.S. The enchanting and gemming will be taken care of tonight, I was too tired to do more than dailies.

Your gear is more than sufficent for tanking normals, infact its better than what i started tanking heroics in. You're 4% shy of the hit cap and 4 shy of the expertise softcap so make those a priority.

good start. Hit and expertise are not nearly as important as stamina and mastery are considering threat for dk's atm is a roflstomp. I'd say the stat priority right now would be stamina/armor/mastery>dodge/parry>hit/expertise. I've found reforging off some hit and exp to mastery or dodge has done a lot more for me than a little bit extra threat/dps.
Changing those trinkets to stam trinkets would be a great boost in survivability too allowing for more self healing and bigger bone shields
