New to tanking...

Post  abiel on Tue Jan 26, 2010 12:34 pm

I just started tanking on my DK, and am just using the gear I had to reach d-cap. I'm currently using a frost spec and a fairly simple rotation. Anyone have suggestions on spec/rotation or just tips in general to help keep aggro, etc? Any help would be appreciated!

Use a RuneStrike macro for every ability, for example here's a macro for IT:

#showtooltip
/cast Icy Touch
/cast !Rune Strike

The '!' modifier on the Rune Strike makes sure that it won't toggle off RS.

im not sure about Frost pres, but in Blood and Unholy DK what you need to do is, macro your PS, IT, HS/BS, DS/SS, And DC(if unholy) to do Runestrike. You can even go as far as to macro ur D&D and Pestilence too. what i do is.

#showtooltip
/cast Icy Touch
!cast Runic Strike

Hope this helps u as much as it helped me Very Happy

Respecced to blood and set those macros, and I'm not quite sure how I was tanking before Smile Really helps a lot, thanks!

Just out of curiosity, would these macros generate too much threat for dps?

there's a good possibility, as rune strike is a "generates high threat" attack. you might be better off leaving it out of dps rotations.
