    Whatever one you would rather play.

    Although to be honest if you plan on getting into any sort of dedicated raiding, I wouldn't bother with DK until 5.0.

    Gear both up as tank, once you get a feel for both of them carry on with the one you prefer.

    Agree with Teng.

    I have to say that full Ruth doesn't mean much in pve and it would bode well to remember that. I have seen pvp geared dps rock the meters...and I saw two consecutive (we kicked the first) Ruthless rets in ZA who couldn't break 5k.

    Also, tanking tends to be a totally different mindset. Pvp gear really doesn't work as a filler for tanking. The pvp awareness should serve you well but group awareness and dungeon knowledge and tricks you pick up over time all come into play.

    Actually, as fear as feral tabling us concerned, ruthless gear is the best gear you can get outside of FL. Its 30 item levels higher than za/zg gear. For bears, agility armor and stamina are king, and they only come with higher item levels. Gemmed and reforged properly, a full ruthless feral is pretty well equipped.

    Pardon my oversite...ferals value agility enough that pvp gear does often do well enough for a filler. However, having half your secondary stats wasted does still have a significant impact.

    Also, comparing the play styles of (assumed) cat and unholy to bear and blood is like comparing apples to freight trains. Get a good feel for both, and run with the one you like better. I prefer my DK, but that's only because my bear's still a cub. At 85, things might be a ton more fun. Who knows?

    I'm having a blast on my druid teddy bear, there is something charming about charging at something and mauling its face off

    I always enjoy a lot with my bear. I used to play both of them and then figured out that bear is much better for me.
