1) Get 2 slow 1hers when you can. 2x Nighttime
is perfect. Black Icicle
is good too.
The only thing I even moderately disagree with is this. Black Icicle isn't just "good too." It's notably better than Nighttime, especially given the OP's really low hit rating.
If you compare the two
, dual Nighttime nets you 26 Agility, 68 ArPen and 68 Haste, while dual Black Icicle nets you 50 AP, 76 Crit and 58 Hit.
ArPen is going to be fairly useless for you as a Frost Tank (both because several of your abilities ignore armor and also because without stacking ArPen you won't see a great benefit). So basically you're looking at a slight armor and crit increase from agility plus a threat increase from haste vs. a sizable amount of AP, Crit and Hit.

I might possibly suggesting getting rid of the Glyph of Death & Decay
. My personal experience - and I am by no means an expert - is that I don't use Death & Decay that much compared to Howling Blast, even when tanking. It's three runes, long cooldown...it just doesn't seem to mesh as well. If you are using Death & Decay frequently, then, sure, it's all good. I'm just saying that I don't really use it that much.
Glyphs for Obliterate
or Rune Strike
might be more useful. You might be able to move those two points in Unholy into Bladed Armor, then.
It probably wouldn't be a bad idea to use that one Nightime in your main hand until you get something else for the offhand.
(for Valor badges, I think) is a solid one, and should hold until you get whatever you're going for. Normal ToCh
and Forge of Souls
have better pants. I wouldn't recommend getting an epic leg enchantment for what you're wearing now.
Your hit is kind of low. Granted, most tanks don't stack for hit, but you're under 2%. For that reason, I might also mention looking at the belt
in normal ToCh, again.
Some of the armor changes will probably cause your defense to dip. This is another reason to get the shoulder and head enchantments. Which--
Wait, did you do the Sons of Hodir quest chain? I'm only asking because I don't see any Sons of Hodir rep on your armory profile. You should, both for the rewards and for the quest. Drakkensyrd, alone, is like, ten kinds of awesome.
But, yeah. Keep at it. Also, heroic Halls of Reflection is just not easy to tank. Don't take that as an indictment of your playing skills. It ain't no joke.
Another reason to get rid of that Abyssal Rune trinket? You will undoubtedly group, at some point, with a caster. They will see that trinket, look at your class, and then, their heads will explode.
