  1. Swordshattering > Stoneskin Gargoyle

    Death Strike and Blood Shield will only be affected by Stoneskin Gargoyle if you are NOT taking enough damage to lift them above the bare minimum (which is based on your health), which probably means...
  2. Mastery vs. Avoidance

    I have read so many threads and mind-froze my own brain trying to decypher pages of complex mathematics, but there does not seem to be any clear consensus on this debate. I have gotten the impression...
  3. Even if you aren't having threat issues overall,...

    Even if you aren't having threat issues overall, there are still times when the extra burst is important: aggro resets, backpulls, etc. Most DKs do not find a lot of competition among the major...
  4. Is DRW important?

    Short answer: YES!

    You should have DRW glyphed, of course. It then becomes both a great defensive CD and threat generator. Most of the time you won't need the extra threat, but occasionally it...
  5. Tauntmaster

    I like tauntmaster. It not only shows threat, but allows you to taunt-off by clicking the persons name even if you can not find them in the fray (as long as they are in range and line-of-sight). ...

    [QUOTE=Lamneth;493669]@Nullset
    It is the responsibility of all players in the group/raid to keep track of their threat and manage it. QUOTE]

    As one mentor told me, "If the healer dies, it's the...

    Continuing to favor Dodge over Mastery

    ...for the moment. It occurs to me that absorbing damage from a blow does not avoid the debuff applied by an attack (poisons, slows, stuns, etc.). Dodging...

    Army of the Dead (FTW!) vs. Army of the Fail

    In WotLK, about the only time I used Army was for a dps boost (or maybe for distractions during WG).
    Since the Cataclysm, I am finding Army of the...

    Trinkets

    Which tanking trinkets are you using?

    At Item-level 355 now, I have most of the tanking trinkets available without raiding. I find myself using the Darkmoon Earthquake (crafted) and...
  10. Bloodworms and Abomination's Might

    I guess the makeup of your raid team says a lot about whether you should spec Abomination's Might. On my team I am the one providing this buff and it is always active. Doing without it would cost...
  11. I am still using the Armsman enchant (+2% Threat...

    I am still using the Armsman enchant (+2% Threat should scale just fine through Cata), and I use the new version of Tuskar ("Earthen Vitality" now) on my boots. I am mostly stacking avoidance with...
  12. I am not trying to fine-tune my stat balancing...

    I am not trying to fine-tune my stat balancing just yet; my gear is still changing every day. At this point in the expansion, I am leaning a bit towards avoidance over mastery because I get to use...
  13. Does expertise generate threat just by being...

    Does expertise generate threat just by being there? or only when it allows you to land a blow that otherwise would have been dodged? I have not been expertise capped since "expanding" out of my old...

    Anyone else noticed an escalation of nerd-rage lately? I blame it on two factors:
    1) Players frustrated with having to learn CC and wiping until they do.
    2) Players binging on WoW since the...
  15. Bloodworms Revisited: Been playing with my...

    Bloodworms Revisited:

    Been playing with my spec some more, and found a way to spec both Bloodworms and Abomination's Might at level 85. I am still seeing the Abomb buff active in most of my...
  16. Early Cata Observations: 1) Tanks need to...

    Early Cata Observations:

    1) Tanks need to glance at healer mana bars before pulling. At marginal gear levels, at least, healers need to replenish after every serious fight. This does have an...
  17. Now that the Cataclysm has occurred, I have some...

    Now that the Cataclysm has occurred, I have some more thoughts on
    Bloodworms vs. Abomination's Might:

    The case for Bloodworms: We are definitely not getting healed to 100% as often, so the...
  18. RE: Bloodworms I gave up on bloodworms for...

    RE: Bloodworms

    I gave up on bloodworms for two reasons:

    1) The total healing I was getting from them was extremely low (according to Recount and my combat log)

    2) What healing I got was...
  19. RE: Sindragosa slows: Hunters can buy you 4...

    RE: Sindragosa slows: Hunters can buy you 4 seconds of normal speed by using "Master's Call"; the hunter on our team would save that for when I called for it (usually when I was racing to drop...

    Loving this thread and returning to it often. To update and comment on some of the questions here:

    1) There is now an addon available through Curse ("Bloodshield Tracker") that not only tracks...

    My priority won't be racing to 85 but rather in maximizing the fun I have getting there. I enjoy uncovering back story and seeing new content, so I will level one toon in Vah'jir (probably my Night...
