Alright, about your spec, it seems like you built it to pick up Vet of the 3rd War and the rest in frost. I do wish I could have that talent as well in my frost tanking build, but it doesn't really seem to work. Look at how deep you are in the Blood Tree. Picking up Mark of Blood will have more impact on your tanking than 1 more point into that +dodge talent in Unholy.
This is a build I came up with to get Vet in blood(24/42/5):http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=j0Ezq0ccoZGgxzGed0hR0ooZ0x
The major weakness with this type of build is that you miss out on bonus critical strike damage, your diseases do not last very long, and you don't have Hungering Cold to apply Frost Fever to everything for you to nail it with Howling Blast. You can switch vendetta to improved blood tap if you want, and that might be more useful in a group/solo environment than vendetta.
Personally, I use a 10/51/10 Frost Tanking build:http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=j0EZGtxzhed0hoVostcg
I feel that Hungering Cold will become more valuable when HB can be cast without a cooldown. That will be serious aoe threat on demand. I was tanking w/o bladed armor and killing machine for a while, but when I specced back into them, I found that I could use the crit on howling blast and boost up my threat by a wide margin. Bladed Armor adds around 600 ap when you're all in tanking gear, huge impact for the talent points.
I'm not sure how UH tanks work, but it seems like they would build up runic power to dump on their 51 pt, making it impossible to get vet of the 3rd with it. Another alternative might be speccing for bone armor in unholy, getting toughness, and dumping the rest in Blood, but that first build is what I could come up with within what you were trying to do.
nice. ive been tooling around with trying to work vet of the 3rd but as you said i think its way too deep into the blood tree.
that spec does lack the crit. but i was trying to aim it towards more pure tank and not just half and half which seems to be the norm. imma mess with these builds more and see what it turns up. prolly nothing.
Someone needs to learn to play a DK.
you burned me. now im gonna go masturbate with my own tears as lubricant. moron. how bout contribute instead of just flaming.
