Death Knight Tanking Spec and Spell Rotation
Return to board index
Assume that I've done nothing but tank my whole time playing World of Warcraft. Primarily as a warrior.
I want to roll a deathknight to have another tanking toon at my disposal. I want to gear it pretty much the same as I'd gear a warrior tank (because I know what to look for), minus, of course, the shield and anything with SBV.
I don't really care if I go 2H or Dual-wield. I want maximum survivability, mitigation, threat, all that good stuff - DPS is only something I care about as it pertains to threat gen. If I can stay ahead of the idiot mage tossing a pyroblast early in the pull, nothing else matters. I want to be uncrittable and easy to heal more than anything.
I would love to see a solid spec that meets these needs. I don't care about extra dps while leveling, or how much I might be buffing my party members. I'm skeptical enough about trying to tank any raid boss without a shield, so anyone who has done this with success at level 80 on raids and heroics, please let me know what spec and spell rotation you are using.
Color me stupid. I overlooked the sticky at the top of the page that has a pretty solid variety of specs and spell rotations.
If anyone has anything to add to this, I'd still like to hear it. Thanks.
