    I guess drawf is the min/max choice. If you are in a hard core guild, which may not be your case, no rep gear is mandatory, as all the gear can be obtained from raid. And you still need the valor...

    Good information! We successfully defeated the first 2, but Garajal was too much a dps check for us. Also when we tried 2-healer composition, if a healer got voodoo-dolls 3 times in a serie, he will...

    Maybe you should just invest more time in adjustment to the new style. I mean, in this patch tankadins get almost everything we wanted, like mobility, survivability, a movable consecration, etc., so...

    Unless a combat log can be presented, no one can know the exact problem of the tank deaths the OP mentioned. IMO, there are mechanisms much more important than trying to avoid one or two adds...

    The augument only stands when you use DS mindlessly on CD, which every veteran DK tank won't do. Remember, avoidance only means you can avoid an attack, and the damage will still be the same once it...

    The strategy totally depends the ability of your kiter. If you were wiping at 45%, then obviously your kiter were not fully resetting the adds more than once. But it's good training and you will need...

    I'm afraid this post in wowhead is not entirely true. Even with IDS, the minimum heal is still 7%, not 7%*1.45. The healing boost only works for the "20% of the damage one takes in last 5 seconds"...

    I know the spell reflect trick, however I didn't know the grounding totem trick. So an unglyphed grounding totem will only absorb 1 hit while an glyphed one will deflect all the Flaming Destruction...

    It's possible to reset the adds indefinitely. Just turn on the stopwatch when the first fire is coming down. The next fire should be 30 seconds later, and then 25 seconds later, then 20 seconds...

    I guess the strategy somewhat depends on your raid setup. Generally we have a dps as the regular tank, and two tanks swapping in the feud phase. Generally tank A eats the DA for the entire fight, and...

    @Couladin
    I agree that being hit/expertise capped is unnecessary. Actually in the current gear level to get hit/expertise capped you will be severely gimping your survivability. For tanks the first...

    First your gearing goal depends much on your expected role.

    For single target tanking, I would prefer mastery over avoidance as it's more steady. And you need to reach a reasonable level of...

    I disagree with you. LDW was unfriendly for melee. However, Saufang is OK for melee, as long as you set up a stun chain for the beasts or let hunters taunt the beasts. For Sindy, infact it's easier...

    I strongly doubt that gemming/reforging for hit/expertise is optimal for any serious raiding tank. Even if your DS doesn't land on the boss, you still have your runes and you just need to use DS...

    In WotLK raiding, the sustained threat is generally not a problem for an experienced and properly geared tank. What tanks usually worry about is the initial threat, as it's generally necessary for...

    I don't think savage defense has a cd. It used to, but it no longer has a cd now. It's just a 50% proc on crits. And it's normal for a bear to go with more than 40% crit in raid.

    Thorns is a 20sec-duration powerful AoE threat tool now with a 45 sec (25 sec if glyphed) cooldown. Remember to use that and you should have much less trouble in AoE threat.

    Rune Tap is very useful in my experience. It's an off GCD instant 20% hp heal available every 30s, which double dips on the ICC buff. I generally bind this with a death strike in a macro. When I know...

    Yeah I believe so. All those tricks that could avoid a mark does not work now (like get into the cannon, Divine Intervention, vanish). You have to heal through the marks.
