Dual wield tank taking spike
For a while now, I've been searching many different forums to find a solution to my problem, but I can't find any information on this.
I am a dual-wielding death knight tank. I recently adjusted my talent spec a little to match a recommended build I found, and as far as I know my gear is pretty ok. I'm not really a big-time raider, but I do run a lot of heroics and I would like to try out a few raids, just to see them.
With my current spec and gear, I don't have any threat problems whatsoever. I can tank any heroic without much trouble, given that I have a decent healer with me.
My problem is that, especially when facing groups of mobs, I take very high spike damage. In boss fights I don't have any problems, and also in fights against one or a few mobs I do ok. But when I have a group of 4 or more mobs, my spike is really very high. This is the main reason I haven't started raiding yet, since I don't think the healer will be able to keep up with it.
Can anyone give me some advice on how to reduce my spike damage?
T(h)anks in advance!
