Hello all,

I have been tanking since the release of WoTLK on a DK and lately I have been seeing everyone using blood to tank. Well I have been the guy that has stayed 2handed frost and am looking for some thoughts about the results I have been getting.

According to the link from tankspot: http://www.tankspot.com/showthread.p...-threat-values

It shows these values as threat generators:

Icy Touch - 1 frost rune - damage X7

Plague Strike - 1 unholy rune - damage

Obliterate - 1 unholy & 1 frost - damage

Now lets talk about some math of this. My icy touch usually hits for 2500 therefore the math tells me I will receive 17500 threat from one frost rune. If I use Obliterate then I will use 2 runes and do damage of the strike (usually about 7500 with glyph). That is a huge loss.

Everywhere you go tells you to use this standard rotation: Icy > PS > BS > BS > OB > OB

This doesnt make much sense to me. Today I tanked ICC 10 and wanted to just test it out by taking OB off my bar. I used 3 things on single targets from my glyphs IT > PS > BS then just rinse and repeat every time they refreshed (of course I used frost strike, rune strike etc, but I am referring to just glyphs). I was holding about 18500TPS according to omen which was about 4500 more than I usually hold with using Oblit in my rotations. Has anyone else seen this? Surely someone else has been seeing this? The obliterate is of course tasty due to the big number scrolling through but did I miss something?

Just looking to see who else has seen this.
