    Charge is great, and TC will get the mob's attention. But do not use SW right away, because if the whole mob gets stunned, there goes your aggro. Also, Cleave will consume massive amounts of aggro....

    Cleave/Vigilance is a pretty debated topic. I would suggest vigilance first, as you will always be outgeared and may have threat issues. While improved cleave will help, I think vigilance is better...

    As a tank, you'll never have to wait for more than a few seconds while in queue. If you have the time (I made the time) you can literally do every random every night. You'll be able to horde Triumph...

    Absolutely! It started as a rotation response, but it was pretty obvious that his rotation was pretty good and only minor tweaking was needed. But melee dps comes primarily from your weapon, and when...

    This is funny. I have a warrior tank as my main and a holy priest as an alt, and I cringe when a dk is tanking because they are tougher to heal. Druids in bear form are pretty easy and pallys are...

    I definitely agree that +6stam isn't a big loss and +12stam is a big loss. But if you're a tank, what about the other important stats? 8% hit rating, 540 defense rating and (28?) expertise rating are...

    Stabum hits it on the head - the best tanks need to worry about everything, including dps. On long fights a small boost in any player's dps may mean the difference between wiping or collecting...

    Again, I agree with survivability more than dps, but considering he currently has no weapon enchant, it wouldn't be a loss for him to get it.

    He can keep all his current tanking gear (which has...

    I agree that this isn't the best tank enchant, but if you would have read Kaoscontrol's question, you would have known that he wants to increase dps, NOT survivability. Blood Draining and Bladeward...

    At the moment i don't have an enchant on my weapon, but i'll have a look at that shortly.


    You definitely need the +25hit/+25crit enchant on your weapon.

    Two things -
    1. Your hit rating seems kind of low, although your expertise is good.
    2. What enchant is on your weapon? Try the hit/crit enchant to increase dps.

    Also, while I didn't look at...

    Manginae's numbers are spot on - shoot for 8% hit and at least 26 expertise.

    I think vigilance can be a tank's best friend in regards to aggro, and I have it glyphed, as well. The glove enchant...

    In regards to Vigilance, I have to agree with Amar that it is better suited on a caster, usually a mage or demo lock. If a melee DK or Warrior takes a little aggro, they have plate and can take a few...

    The first thing I do is look for a mage, and slap vigilance on. I have the glyph and it's an immense help for threat. After a couple mobs I can see if there is a "showoff" in the group, and switch...

    I think the most important part of your question is the fact that you are not 80 yet. Like swelt points out, most groups massively outgear the instance, and therefore (as a new lvl 80) will massively...

    Yes, Defense Rating has diminishing returns, but how can any good tank not go way over 540?

    When I first hit 80, I was nowhere near 540. I got some better gear and put in some gems, and after a...

    This is an interesting time to be in your situation.

    Back in the day, heroic dungeons were pretty tough, and even "well geared" players could wipe. Now, with the new raids and the dungeon finder,...

    36k is pretty much minimum nowadays, and I agree that pugs typically look at that number more than gearscore. So at 34k, definitely expect the silent treatment.

    Deep Wounds? That would cost me 12 talent points just to get to, and 15 total. I don't think it's worth it, really. Also, I am 4/5 in Anticipation, so I'm not too worried.

    Cleave/Glyph of Cleaving

    I read a lot on attack rotation and glyphs. I see Cleave come up a lot, and I have to say, I really think it's the poorest part of any good warrior tank rotation. Hear me out, and please let me know...

    Tanking re: Ann Romney

    I have devastate (a must), vigilance and shockwave.

    No doubt you need devastate, so no discussion needed.

    The reason I love vigilance is for the threat it gives me without doing a thing. I'll...
