    If your looking to get some meaningful questing done your best bet is to forget about "parking" your character before logging out (whether for rest xp, dailies, AH, banking, etc). When you normally...

    As others have mentioned it's situational awareness and attention to detail that separate the good tanks from the merely adequate who show up with the right spec, gear, and threat rotation. You can...

    If you have players in your group who can't carry their weight, Heroics will be hard. You can't carry subpar performers unless you and others in your group overgear/overskill the instance. Healers...

    Based on the info you provided I'd go with poor CC selection combined with poor pull strategy. You want to avoid AOE tanking situations near CC targets, way too much of a pain as you are forced to...

    Quick and dirty answers: The stats you'll want to stack are Agility, Mastery, Crit, and Dodge. Hit and Expertise are nice threat stats but single target threat should be solid as is. Haste is the...

    Your base health (i.e. naked, talentless, and minus your bae stamina) skyrockets from 80-85. I believe most classes have base healths around 39k-44k at 85. So your health will rise both as you get...

    It's my understanding that Revealing Strike does not affect Slice and Dice. So if you know you need to use your current combo points to refresh SnD then you can skip Revealing Strike entirely.
