I Love you guides polar. I thought you might want to add the quest rewards from Wanted: Ragemane's Flipper (sorry not sure how to link) The mace is what I am using and it looks comparable to the items you have listed.
This is a pretty obvious question but wanted to ask it just in case I am thinking too much with my warrior and not enough with my DK. Do the same tanking principles apply to the DK as the other tank classes. Meaning do I need to be stacking Def, Sta, and Expertice as I had always done with my warrior. Since a DK can not use a shield, I plan to stick to the 2h weapons so as to reduce the ammount of parry chances boss mobs have against me.
Basically, do I still look for the same old tanking gear for my DK that we have always looked for as tanks or do stats affect us differently?
I have those a bit better. Yes Guys there is a Gun out there the mats are easy enough to get if your guild loves you they are 10 titanium bars 15 eternal airs 15 eternal waters and a frost orb can not remember the name of it but an engineer can make it found one on my sever just tring to get the airs now. look on wowhead or ask an engineer, and it looks like a f@#$ing tank.
This list is great, and frankly, the list everyone turns to. Excellent work!
A couple of little things:
For legs, you say:
Recommended Enchant: Frosthide Leg Armor (+55 stamina, +22 agility)
These are Epic leg enchants and are likely to be prohibitively expensive for blue gear you will replace ASAP. The equivalent Blue item would be Jormungar Leg Armor (45 Stam, 15 Agi). The mats for this look reasonable.
Also, you do not mention the Daunting Handguards. These use the same family of attainable mats as the Daunting Legplates, are an equivalent iLevel to the Gauntlets of Vigilance, and yet have tonnes more defence - which is quite important as some of us need some high-defence options to juggle gear to hit the magic 540.
Needless to say, as a Blacksmith I am all about promoting the crafted stuff, so the Eternal Belt Buckle should at least be mentioned, even if it might be slightly pricey for what it does.
Slightly offtopic... Blizzard finally gives us a set of recipes from the trainer that are usable, class focussed, and have reasonable mats (no farming primals for hours to make a useless resist item solely for the skillups)... Yes, feeling the Blacksmith love after many years in the wilderness...
PS: Any Trinket updates? I am just about out of quests everywhere and haven't found a single one. Never really got into BC Endgame so am still rolling with the Regal Protectorate - Remember that?!
