It would seem that this is the appropriate thread for my question. So my DK hit 80 like 5 days ago (I leveled it due to our lack of a good DK tank... it was originally made as a profession bitch) so it is by no means best in slot, but it's doing okay. I have what I consider to be a good tanking spec and am just wondering what I could add or do differently to get him Sarth 3D ready.

- Armory is failing me right now, but the toon's name is Faligard.
- Yes, I know I need a new cloak. It was the first thing I could get my hands on that had def.
- Yes, I know it's a troll.

Side note: as a DK tank should I gem/enchant for +hit? I'm pretty far undercap and it's a bear to hold threat against geared dps when I'm missing. Or do I just wait because my next upgrades will likely have +hit on them?

Unholy with AMZ will probably do it the easiest.

Rotate cooldowns - AMZ, IBF, AMS (as an example) and by the end of that (if you start from just after the last drake lands) you should be in the clear. I usually kept BS (and rune tap) for when I had to dodge to the side to avoid a flame wave, and a healer ended up just out of range.

In that spec, 4 pc T7 worked fine. I didn't end up needing to regem stamina in everything, so most gems that weren't in a blue socket were for hit or expertise. You don't need particularly special gear, just make sure you're not wearing stuff with lots of armour or avoidance at the expense of stam.

Blood can work, but you're basically stacking stam and relying on VB/WotN to boost your HP to eat the spikes, rather than mitigate most of the damage.
