    Solid piece of work, my only major complaint about it is that I kind of wish you'd laid out more explicitly up top what assumptions the body of the text is working with, in particular what a...

    The earlier posters have covered most of the important bits. The only thing I'd add is that there a small collection basic tanking maneuvers/gimmicks and most fights are made up of combinations of...

    So YMMV with this advice, since it's admittedly been a fair while since I've been undergeared as a tank so it's possible that I may be riding on gs (but I've been playing roughly the same way since...

    Wow, the folks saying resto shams provide low HPS just boggle my mind, to the extent that I wonder if we're talking about the same class. On fights that don't conflict significantly with shaman...

    With which statement? That a Last Stand-like temporary health boost is a baseline tank ability? No, that was hyperbole to demonstrate how thin the basis for declaring an AP debuff a baseline tank...

    Death Knight Sorry, but that's a pretty subjective statement. ...

    Sorry, but that's a pretty subjective statement. You've, as far as I can tell, just arbitrarily declared some abilities as a 'baseline tanking ability' and some not, and in a way that leads to all...
  7. Healing Pally/Druid/Holy Priest high hps tank heal rotations

    This is a bit of a weird request, but I'm hoping a few folks could take a couple seconds to lend a hand.

    I'm building a small simulator to do some Monte Carlo simulations of tank health to...

    I think this is overstating things. Even as a 2h frost tank (with all the lower threat that implies) I've never had any threat issues without epidemic. Perhaps it's necessary for dps without threat...
  9. Death Knight Last time my frost dps guildie looked for me...

    Last time my frost dps guildie looked for me (month or two ago) he reported that IIT was refreshed by Pestilence while running GoD. Though I've just taken his word and haven't doublechecked myself...

    If you're going to drop one, definitely make it Scent of Blood. Bladed Armor is an excellent talent that scales, whereas Scent of Blood is only a decent one (and you're already getting decent RP gen...

    I don't believe Hungering Cold has a threat component (as far as I know), in practice it's mostly a way of spreading frost fever to a group, as generally there's enough random aoe that the cc...

    I was going to say here that more hit/expertise would be nice for him, but it's not going to cripple him, and short of getting different gear the only way he can get more is to regem/enchant for...

    You look pretty solid. I'd personally be inclined to swap a few things (I've never found hungering cold useful for tanking, and I'd swap the rune strike or howling blast glyph for frost strike) but...

    Tank toolkits are never going to be completely uniform, since it's boring game design to have every tank class have identical tools for all situations. Blizz has been pretty clear that they think...
