I can't win... It's either threat or surviving?
Okay, firstly I'll start off with I've only played a DK for 7 days played total and I powerleveled this DK on request of the guild. Anyway at first I tried tanking as unholy, albeit the spec was a bit messed up *and my current spec is messed up as well*.
In short I had the threat to tank the content I'm expected to tank but I died rather quickly and even blowing cooldowns I usually dropped fairly fast.
So after some thinking I found a recommended spec for frost and I had a go. Now first impressions where good. I wasn't dying however I noticed my threat was fairly lack luster. Now there is a lesson to be learnt, bringing in your best and most powerful DPS into a heroic for a test isn't a good idea but none the less, threat was an issue. Now my gear says I should be having very little problems tanking if none at all.
So I'm thinking it's a matter of rotation or maybe in my gear I can start optimizing for TPS.
My rotation is,
IT-PS-BS-BS-HB-(OB once I've altered my spec)
Now my reasoning *false as it may be*
IT for initial aggro,
PS to allow extra damage done for
BS, getting blade barrier up asap is so far my goal as a tank and an avoidance tank at that,
HB for a bit of extra threat and a 3.5k crit never goes astray
I also use RS when ever available as with DC as an energy dump
D&D-IT-P-HB *Deathchill when up*-PS-HS
Now reasoning like above is as followed,
D&D Just to give some inital aggro ground settled before the pull.
IT as above
P to spread frost fever
HB for a boost on threat on all the targets
PS as above
and HS to get get BB going,
So I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, I think it's a matter of rotation but I really need some help.
