    Which DK tanking spec to use.....

    I am wondering as to which of the tree tanking specs I should use for my DK. I have tried DW, and it was seemingly successful. Though, people who had worse gear than I, had better stam... Which I never figured out why. ;p I have heard ideas of Blood tanking being nice since healers are so lazy these days... though when I look up the top guild on my realm, I find that all the tanks are Two-Hander frost.

    Any opinions are generously welcomed, yet I do hope that when you express your opinion you give reasoning for it.

    I am going to comment your gear first, since this will get your up there for your gear.
    Okay first off.
    For a helm, especially with a +12 Stam socket bonus, match the socket. Gem a Hit/Stam or a Def/Stam gem there. You will gain 10 hit or 10 def for the cost of only 3 stamina.
    Change ALL your gems to Epic Gems.

    Get http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47735 and farm for http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47216

    If you want to DW Frost Tank. Farm for http://www.wowhead.com/?item=50191 (H Forge of Souls) or http://www.wowhead.com/?item=50303 (H Halls of Reflection) or http://www.wowhead.com/?item=50268 (H Pit of Saron).

    Not sure what 2H weapons you have for 2H tanking. But http://www.wowhead.com/?item=50267 (H Pit of Saron) or http://www.wowhead.com/?item=50296 (H Halls of Reflection) or http://www.wowhead.com/?item=49839 (Reg Halls of Reflection) are your best bets outside of a Raid.


    Truthfully all 3 Specs are Viable for Tanking.
    Though most of the High End Tanks are Blood, 2H Frost or DW Frost Tanks.

    Best thing to do is give them them all a try, and find which one you like most or fits you best.
