To make it short My main in a Holy Priest that I have been raiding with him since I first rolled him some 3+ years ago. I have been Holy since my first talent point (Brother is a Prot Paladin). Since I started 25 man content with priest I have been playing around with a DK as a tank on the side. Things are not going to bad but I always feel confused with all the tanking numbers.
Please take a look at my gear and spec. Yes, I am Blood but I like to try out specs people do not look hard at. In 5 mans being blood has saved my run when the healer is way under geared. In 10 mans I am an OT and sometimes MT depending on the boss and who we got to fill the MT. Tonight I noticed my Prot warrior MT (who is one of our MT/OTs for 25 mans and was a tank back when BWL was fresh) was using vigilance ( spelling?) on me. even with that I stayed right behind him on threat with out using Rune Strikes.
I have used Parry gems simply due to the lack of information on what to use as a Blood Tank. I am aware I need to replace some gear still but as this is an alt he takes a back seat to my Priest in rep farming, gems/enchanting mats and Heroic runs.
Skinner and Miner so I get the additional 32 crit rating and 50 stam bonuses (not sure if these are reflected in the numbers on the character sheet).
I use Anvil of Titans mainly for the 1.02% reduction chance to be critically hit since I have not gotten any better trinkets yet.
According to a macro i found my overall avoidance is 50.48. of course I am not even sure this macro works with DKs.
Thanks for your feed back.
