CATA : Blood DeathKnight Tank Talent Build

Jan 13, 2011 2:04 am
The best spec for raid tanking, which has a survival bias is 31/6/2 +2 .




Two spare points: put them in Abomination's Might, BCB, Virulence or Crimson Scourge. Most raid tanks think Crimson Scourge is a waste of points.

The 31 points in Blood are pretty straight forward; you pick anything that adds survivability. You get a minor choice between 3/3 Bladed Armor or 3/3 Scent of Blood but due to diminishing returns on SoB with a slow weapon the gains between 2/3 and 3/3 are negligible which means 3/3 Bladed Armor trumps that (and it adds more healing to Death Coil, too).

Frost is also obvious, there are no choices.
Essentially, Lichborne is a survival talent. After you have picked up the mandatory 31-pts for Blood tree, there aren't many discretionary points that remain, and the only additional talent to assist progression is Lichborne. A tank's first job is to survive, second to have threat, and the third factor is utility.

The discussion on the use of Lichborne as a tanking cooldown (with self-targetted death coils) is over a few pages.

From here on it's trickier. You have 4 points to play around with, 2 which should be in Epidemic so you only need to refresh Frost Fever every 30 seconds (makes it align nicely with Outbreak and Scarlet Fever innately lasts 30 seconds anyway).

This is a final talent build (33/6/2)

    this could be outdated i'd check elitistjerks for current information. although just roughly looking it seems about right still.
