    Relatively new tank....For the most part, I've only got quest gear :/

    Well guys, what should I be running? And what are my priorities to upgrade(other than all of it)?


    Also, which is most important defense rating, critical strike, or attack power as a tank?

    And I should be dual weilding correct? Swords or axes?

    Thanks all,

    First off your Spec is a bit off for DW tanking. http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#j0EhZ...fuzAo0x:askmMV is pretty much the basics for a DW Tank Spec.
    Some enchants on your gear will help.
    As far as weapons go, I think Orcs get an Expertise bonus for using Axes, but that isn't Critical. Use the best weapons you can get, regardless if they are two 1H or a 2H weapon.
    If you have not done the http://www.wowhead.com/?quest=12974 quest line, you can get http://www.wowhead.com/?item=41816 as a reward or http://www.wowhead.com/?item=41824


    Oblit is a MUST for any Frost DK regardless of Tank or DPS. Oblit is the Bread and Butter of Frost.
    Icy Touch or Howling Blast
    Frost Strike or Rune Strike
    are your other two glyphs

    Death Grip is pointless, you have two taunts and several ranged attacks.
    Death & Decay is pointless, for Frost Spec, D&D is an opener and for spot threat, it is not part of any rotation.
