    Stop running heroics. You need to run regular mode until you feel less overwhelmed by tanking. There is more room for error in the regular modes and you can familiarize yourself with the dungeons...

    Rune Strike: Use it always. Macro it to every ability and use it. It is your number 1 threat ability and should consume as much RP as possible.

    Rotation: IT-PS-DS-HS-HS / DS-HSx4. Repeat. Use...

    It sounds like you miss being OP more than you miss UH tanking. Being overpowered is a bad place for any class. It attracts the marginal players (deathtards) and causes Blizzard to break out the...

    Bryntoll is OK, but there are better 2H weapons in ICC. The proc isn't that good for tanks and the lack of hit or expertise makes it a subpar tanking weapon, especially in current content. ...

    This is mostly correct. The only problem is the advice to pestilence before PS. There is no point in not putting out both diseases. PS uses an Unholy Rune. BB and Pestilence use Blood Runes. For...

    No. It's a nice weapon, but the lack of top end damage is a problem in ICC. That 15% buff is increasing DPS threat much faster than tank threat. He should get Tyrannical Beheader from H-POS.

    It depends on how young of an 80 and what content. Overall, Unholy lags behind the other specs due to low threat generation(too much DPS in the ghoul). Frost is superior for heroics. Cutting edge...

    If Blizz holds true to their stated desire regarding the relationship between health, healing and incoming damage, then timing your DS in Cata will be unnecessary. The massive reduction in...

    Blood DPS is an extremely tight rotation. The basic rotation is very simple: DS-IT-PS-HS-HS for the first rotation. Every FU pair should be DS. Every blood and death runes should be HS. Use a...

    Don't switch to Blood because it will be the tanking tree in Cataclysm. There is a good possibility that DK tanking in Cataclysm will be substantially different than Blood tanking now. Looking for...

    The gloves are probably the best next T10 for you from an EH perspective. However, if you run VOA religiously, the chest, helm or shoulder slots are a better investment of your badges. All levels...

    Your hit rating is too high. You should be at 264. Conversely, your expertise is too low. You need to be at 26, especially with the lack of spare GCDs in Blood. You can stay around 20 expertise...

    The warrior set bonuses are really nice. Get the 2-piece as soon as possible.

    I agree that the crafted boots are a much bigger upgrade than the crafted legs right now. You won't replace the...

    Yes, you need to maintain 540 defense for any raid. By ICC, every tank is swimming in defense gear.

    Reaching the hit cap(8% with buffs) and expertise soft cap (26) are nice goals, but not worth...

    Your rotation is good, but will be outdated in 3.3.3 (more on this later). The boots are a big upgrade for you. So are the crafted pants.

    If you want FrR, get the epic boots crafted. Fill it with +30 stam to get some HP back.

    Assuming you have the badge/T10 chest and belt, the FrR items for those slots would cost you too much armor.

    200 hit rating is fine. The Harbinger's Bone Band is better than the Abom Blood Ring. The hit rating difference is insignificant over the course of a fight.

    You logged out in DPS gear, so I can't help you with that.

    Your frost spec needs work. Take those three points from subversion and stick them in Blade Barrier (5/5 is required for tanking)....

    The 4pc bonus is only necessary on certain fights. In normal mode, solo tanking LK is the only fight where it is a huge benefit. In heroic, there may be a few more fights where the survivability is...

    The armor from Glyph is superior to the stamina from BH for EH. The on use function for Glyph is the same in ICC as in ToC. It's 10% more dodge. I prefer the on demand nature of on use cooldowns...

    Except for the helm, your gemming is fine. The badge belt and cloak will be good upgrades. You need to replace the neck too. Other than that, normal gear progression will improve your stam.

    No. The easiest expertise is swapping T10 chest to badge chest. 2H Frost would probably work better for threat since you'll have more open GCDs for dodged and parried attacks.

    Blood AoE threat isn't as good as the others. Pick off casters or harder hitting mobs and let your other tanks handle AoE packs in 25s-man. Dreamwalker is a bitch for every tank, but that fight is...
