I am assuming you mean the Brann escort event. Here's how I do it.

1) Fight at the top of the stairs. Healer can be at the bottom, if they like.
2) Don't stand in the big fire beam. That's about the only thing that can kill your group.
2.5) Seal of Command or Righteousness if you don't have Command.
3) The group of 3 dwarves spawns on the left about every 15 seconds. This goes well with Death and Decay, but is long enough that you often will lose Divine Plea. Hit them with a HotR and then let holy shield keep them; most DPS kill them too fast to matter. Aggressive mages and warlocks often end up tanking these, as do ret paladins.
4) In later waves, you get two casters that spawn on the right. Hit them with something to stop them running for Brann. I judge one and ShoR the other, or let seal of cleave do something.
5) Even later comes a big robot that spawns on the right. I save my taunt for that, often, or use HotR on it while I let Consecration pick up the triple-dwarf group. This thing hits relatively harder, but not by much, than the others. It may threaten cloth, which is why I dump threat on it when it spawns.
6) Keep a mana potion handy for emergencies, but avoiding use of Consecrate should be enough.

As a death knight, I just drop D&D every 15 seconds when the three dwarves spawn, and then hit the right side spawns with Something as they come. The big killer is avoiding fires and not spending your mana too fast. Consecration is pretty useless on the three dwarves, as they die too fast for its threat to matter, I only use it near the end (if at all). Once I stopped using Cons, and stopped worrying about Divine Plea being up at all, the fight got much less stressful.

Actually, he is. He quoted a post made by yappo in Feb '09. bretmichal necro'd the thread, but that wasn't my comment.

It's a fair cop! I didn't notice that the question I was answering was a year old, but in general my thought process went like this:

1) WTF, a thread necro? I wonder what someone was asking?
2) Hm, it looks like someone actually has a question which isn't answered.
3) This is something that I know several people claim to wipe on, and which I find super-easy now.
4) I should share what I do! :D Maybe it'll help someone who is a new tank in Halls of Stone so that they can have a smooth and unfrustrating run.

So yeah .. normally I wouldn't respond to a thread necro, but I figured I was adding potentially useful information, even if the majority of tanks here have already graduated past the point where that was troublesome. We surely get lots of new people who look at How To Tank Stuff.
