    Tank abilities vs multitanking

    Guys I have question: which abilities and in what order do U use to keep aggro on 4-5 and more mobs? I am using shockwave and Thunder clap as often as CD allows and mostly devastate, sometimes mocking blow, cleave and heroic strike.

    Plz look at my build and stats too, what should I change? Do I need more parry \ block, less dodge?

    Stats unbuffed: 37111hp, 24621 armor, 7,96%HR, 7,83%crit, expertise 17, Defense 552, Dodge 26,12%, parry 20.41%, block 19,74%


    Here is my build\glyphs
    The World of Warcraft Armory

    Thanks!

    Hmmm
    Id recomend changing your spec to a more traditional spec.
    Missing out on Deep wounds is a fairly big DPS loss and Thus TPS.
    Dont forget shouts, even demo shout will cause some amount of threat.

    Change glyph of shockwave for Devestate and have fun.
    Maybe change your meta gem to 32 sta and 2% more armor.
    Change 10 stats to 275 health too perhaps.

    The abilities you are using are fine except the lack of shield slam in your list.

    Esssentially you either tab-devastate/shield slam, or you use your nameplates and mouse to change target and devastate/shield slam. Glyphed devastate and shield slam are your two highest threat abilities.

    Yes 15pts to get to deep wounds and whats your hit? You want thunderclap to hit to proc deep wounds I find anything below 200 gets a bit sketchy.

    Your Spec still needs work. Perhaps try this.

    Your expertise is low, the first place you need to look when you have threat problems. Change all your parry/stam gems to EPIC Expertise/stam, and the pants 20 parry to 10 expertise/15 stam.

    Get a new shield. This is hard, I know, but you need it. Once you do, swap out your helm green gem for 10 hit/15 stam, and also your bracers as well.

    You should also try going with titanium plating on your shield instead of 18 stamina.

    Thx Insahnity, I will try it tonight.

    BTW guys are there any nice macros\addons that can help with tanking many mobs at once or switching between them or anything that could help^^?

    How much expertise should I have?

    Healing is the only big one where add ons makes a huge difference. Make sure you have omen running if you don't like the in-game threat notifications (red borders). If you raid, make sure you have DeadlyBoss Mods (and keep it updated too).

    The only macros you need to consider are:
    -Binding !heroic strike to mousewheel up, and !cleave to mousewheel down (or some variant).
    If you glyph revenge
    #Show Tooltip
    /Cast Revenge
    /cast !Heroic Strike

    How much expertise should I have?
    As much as you can get without gemming for it, but don't go past 26 to hit the soft cap if you are gemming/enchanting for it. Also, if going for expertise affects your survival, that is obviously bad.
