Tanking in general

Satorri’s discourse on DK Tanking Detailed commentary on DK Tanking which intends to teach you about the mechanics and interactions between talents.
Tanking 101, overall guide Overall guide, covering everything a new tank needs to know, from specs, spells, rotation and threat. Start here.
Simple questions and answers If you have a short question which doesn’t deserve its own thread, this is the place to ask it.
DK Tank Spec If you just want a Blood tank spec recommendation, here it is.
Old players, but new to Blood If you’re coming back and adjusting to Blood’s new 4.x style, this discussion will help you orient.
Racials for tanks You can’t really minmax on racials anymore. Night Elves are the exception, whilst Taurens and Goblins look awesome.


Best PvE spec For levelling on a PvE server, choose Frost 2H.
Best PvP spec If you’re levelling on a PvP server, you’d want Chilblains.
Which starting zone? It looks like Vash’jir might be less populated.
