Hola Folks, I started a Warrior Leveling thread the other day and was well into leveling when it was pointed out I should stop till after Cata came out. So I stopped, I headed back to my DK to try to finish out some things I wanted to do on him but I honestly don't even know where to start. I found what I think is a decent DW Frost build 3/31/2, and I started playing around with it. I retooled my glyphs and even jumped on reforging what I thought was the appropriate stats based off of a guide I found on Elitist Jerks.
Started setting up my hotbars with a really basic priority listing, but was unable to get the hang of it at all. I jumped in a few Heroics and was getting whomped, I never pulled aggro and I saw some decent numbers a few times but overall I sucked on DPS.
I am not sure where the issue came in at to be honest, and thats why I am coming to you guys.
I had been compiling the mats to PL myself into Blacksmithing to combo with JC, but haven't done it.
Also, I'd like to build into tanking again, Its what I did on this character from the point that he was first created, but if I can't get eh hang of DPS anymore, how can I expect to be able to tank. That being said I left my second Spec slot wide open.
Hang in there. You will get used to the changes pretty fast. I am pretty happy with frost right now. IN heroics, I am pulling 10K plus on trash (not that it matter much on trash) and between 5K and 6K on bosses. I have even tanked at frost DPS, cause we lost a tank, and the healer said go for it. I never lost aggro, and still hovered in the upper 3K range on bosses.
I think you will do great, just try not to fight the changes. Frost has not really changed much. Cannot speak for the other specs.

I tank as frost dps every now and then in case I have a decent healer and its one of the easier dungeons (for example DtK, UK, UP, CoS and a few others). Sure the damage is spiky but with about 40k hp some healers actually prefer it since they are so bored otherwise.
