For awhile, my threat has been enough for everyone to deal with, but lately a hunter and affliciton warlock have to hold back on their dps or misdirect to me in order for me to keep the boss and I can't figure out why I can't do more tps.
Normally I do about 3k-4k unless DnD is down and it goes up to 6k, but I don't think I should be needing to have DnD out all the time to stay ahead.
That's my Armory link, feel free to go through it. I think I might not have enough hit rating or my talents might be a little askew. Maybe I need to switch some gems. Any suggestions on how to gain threat would be much appreciated, thank you.
I assume you're talking about single target threat? Can you give us an idea of your rotation?
I'd say pull the points out of Merciless Combat and/or Hungering Cold and grab 2-Handed Weapon Spec in the Blood tree, it will up all your damage and therefore threat.
You seem to be gemming a lot for pure expertise when as Frost +hit is a little more valuable due to so many attacks being spells. Could you post a WoL parse for us to look over, I'd like to see how many misses you are getting.
Maybe drop the UBA and D&D glyphs and pick up Rune Strike and Frost Strike. Rune Strike is a DK's primary threat tool and should be macrod to everything like so:
Yea, single target. My rotation is IT>PS>BS>BS>OB>FS dump>OBx3>FS dump, then I repeat from the beginning, unless my diseases have some time left on them...then I do the OBx3 again and start over next time. Rune strike is already macro'd into all of those.
And if I should be gemming hit instead, then I'll change. I was just always told that as a tank, expertise is more important.
