    If a healer complains about a 5k+ tank being hard to heal, he's probably brain dead. There are a few people like this out there and they are probably another step in evolution of "ZOMG! Tank bad, he...

    Burnished Quel'Serrar is pretty nice, although it is hard to get your hands on.

    As for the talents, Morbidity, Unholy Command, and Merciless Combat are a no-no. Bladed Armor, Killing Machine,...

    My ST damage components are also Melee > Obliterate > Frost Strike. Although my dps gear isn't that spectacular, I still manage to tie with Fury warriors with around 300 more GS than me. Can't say...

    First, we aren't talking ICC raid bosses or any raid bosses for that matter. Second, I burn the appropriate CDs (and I believe it is only reasonable to do so) at all times. It includes those CDs that...

    Running with guildies might be a problem, especially if they get pissed and tend ro blame the tank for dps and heals problems. People should understand at some point that the tank never has too...

    Well, I can think of quite a few upgrades: Saronite Swordbreakers and Boots of Kingly Upheaval for gold, Scourgelord Handguards for badges, Ashen Band of Courage for Ashen Verdict rep, and...

    PUGing H HoR is a comedy rather than a horror.

    I once had a healer who got all nervous about me not picking up all the trash on the getaway phase. When he finally made a not very nice remark...

    You actually can include heals in max number of hits a tank can survive. All you need to do is calculate how much healing your healers do between two boss strikes on average and deduct that number...

    I'd be the first one to tell you that any DW Frost spec is more about fooling around with an awesome-looking, plate-wearing, rogue-like tank than about actual usefullness. All the DW talents, which...

    That's weird sometimes how people don't read what you've written, but read what they want to read instead, isn't it?

    For starters you really don't want Morbidity. You shouldn't be dropping down DnD other than at the pull, so reduced CD on it is pretty much pointless. Bladed Armor, on the other hand, is a must....
  12. Tanking Yeah, I really see no point in arguing if you...

    I'm sorry, but that shows a gross misunderstanding of what a binomial distribution is. Just because the odds aren't 50/50 doesn't mean it isn't binomial, binomial means either it happens or it...

    Well, it certainly isn't simple binomial distribution. It's like saying there's 50/50% chance to see a live dinasaur in a zoo, because you either see it or you don't.

    Mind you, you aren't just...

    Martie's model does not correspond to what you're trying to find here. I think it will be easier to make a simple counter example to show that the model isn't accurate. Suppose you get X+2 hits in a...

    I don't have much experience in Unholy dps, but from your spec it would be much easier to go Frost. Otherwise you'll really need to dump over 350 hit rating, which is compeletely useless for you at...

    Then you can go one more step and calculate this probability, using Poisson distribution. It would be: (1 - (m^0) * (e^(-m)) / 0!) = (1 - e^(-m))

    Which is equivalent to the chance that you will...
  17. Statements like "always willing to take advice"...

    Statements like "always willing to take advice" have to be taken with a grain of salt. Sometimes this grain is the size of human's head.

    From personal experience, if whoever for whatever reason...

    I thought about it for a while and I doubt there's an easy way to make up a probability formula for that one. All the approaches described above have serious caveats. I guess you should be looking at...

    As for the emblem part of the question, Blizzard really wants you to farm frosts for your gear up untill the day Cataclysm goes live, so you don't get bored and don't do something stupid like buying...

    Well, avoiding n hits in a row means you get exactly zero hits out of n. The probability of this happening (let's call it P(0)) is indeed low for any large n (basically, it's your fractional...

    They say you get 100% uptime from just one Last Word, so two of those seem to be redundant. I would suggest getting something slow for the main hand and check that the proc uptime in offhand is...

    I just found your example a little confusing, since tanks do not really rely on avoiding n hits in a row, but rather on not getting hit n times in a row. There is a significant difference between the...

    For Heroics, DKs have a specific threat generation pattern: DnD, IT, PS, Pestilence. Then dps comes in and does whatever it likes to. If they charge in before my DnD is down, they do get aggro and if...

    I suppose a better way of doing it would be calculating the chance of getting hit x times in a row, and substract that number from one to find out the chance of not getting hit x times in a row....

    I'm not sure there's any way to get Master of Ghouls (or in fact go any higher than BCB in Unholy) with the right point investment in Frost tree. So, while the short answer is you should go for BCB,...
