Nov 17th 09: Please see my 3.3 Frost DK tank post for latest answers.
There is a DK simulator which I’ve been using to test the various DK tank specs. But it’s a DPS tool, so it has some limitations for my purposes.
Nevertheless it helps answer questions like, “how much does your rotation TPS drop if you use a single-disease with howling blast rather than two-disease with obliterate?” The answer is below.
Other tank classes’ simulation tools
My apologies to warrior/bear/paladin readers for whom this post is not relevant.
However, you do have some good tools at your disposal:
- Rawr for all classes, but particularly refined for druids
- Prot warriors had Taliafers but it hasn’t been updated since May
- Landsoul’s calculator could be adapted to prot.
If any readers know of some I missed, let me know.
Frost tank Death Knight simulation
Updated Nov 17th 2009:
Question: how much loss of TPS does the HB rotation lead to?
Answer: you do about 95% of the TPS of a two-disease Obliterate rotation.
For full details see my 3.3 Frost post.
