DK Tank - White DMG is it realy mathers
Hi, i played a shamy for a 3 years, then i rolled DK Frost tank,
I read and read all the guidelines about mechanics DW vs 2H wielding etc.
My main concern is about DK stats guides made by theory-crafters is wrong,
for example ,minimum 9% hit,
if you wana DW , more then 12% hit, slow / slow weapons etc,
if you don't have those stats quit tanking etc.
I had a pretty much hard time fallowing those guidelines, until
I came in doubt of all this when i first time tanked Naxx:
Was still on 3~4 blue gear items, and i just replaced De-Raged Waraxe which serves me well since 74lvl, with Sword of Justice from HoS.
I didnt even gem the sword , when i saw "LF Tank "Patchwerk must die",
wth i tought i /w the man.
Went in naxx, and started tanking Patch.
Locked my eyes on Omen , other tank Pally which was a little bit beter geared then me, pulled out around 40% TPS then me, which is ok i tought.
All other DPS was around 30~50% TPS less then me, except Rogue who was doing around 6k dps, he over aggroed me and died.
Except Rogue who died all went well, Patch was down.
And then i realized one thing, i equipped Sword moment before run, and i DIDN'T even leveled 2H Sword skill.
I have been MISS, DODGE and PARRYED on every singe hit.
All my threat came from spell dmg and (Macroed) Rune Strike.
After that i did some Recount inspecting, my white dmg is around 14% of all dmg, so even if i dodge miss and parry for lets say 30~40% off all white dmg, that would still decrese my dps/tps by barly 5~6%.
So is it posible that white dmg to DK Tanks is exaggerated, is there really point to sacrifice other stat, to get Slow/Slow wep, to get insane hit etc?
