Okay, gang, I have a dilemma.
Right now, as you’ve probably noticed, my background is entirely in DPSing - warlock, hunter, (shadow) priest, and two enhancement shamans. And as anyone who’s hung around on the Blog Azeroth chat can attest to, I am absolutely enamored with Death Knights. And, last but not least, our guild needs tanks. Like, badly.
You can probably see where this is going.
I don’t want to be that idiot Death Knight that gives DKs the same kind of name that huntards give to hunters. (Deathtard?) I want to be able to tank, and I want to be at least good enough to tank a 5 man, and that involves me not being completely unprepared: I need to learn to tank.
Obviously there’s not anything I can be directly pointed to that explains how to tank as a Death Knight, since they’re not widely available yet (or maybe I’m wrong and someone’s got a lot of this info down based on the beta, which is fine as a starting point). But what I need are some of the following - what you, my readers (all 16 of you), would consider good general tanking resources on these subjects:
Gearing a tank
Keeping people alive
Taking it in the face and living
Death Knight-specific resources, if they exist
