I'm currently a DW Frost Tank and I've been trying to make a 3.1 spec that still uses DW ( I know its inferior, one reason I want to try tbh).Scent of Blood
was apparently / will be buffed to 10rp per hit and no CD, hence SoB in there (though I could have miss-seen/misread it).
Here are my specs:Frost:http://ptr.wowhead.com/?talent=j0xhZGxex0bIkczbsstcg
Something along those lines. Decent AoE threat and avoidance. This would be a basic Frost DW tanking spec. Lichborne
is not included as its just a longer CD version of Berserker Rage
no extra RP generation. Not worth the talent point IMO.
This spec doesn't rely on weapon speed as much and would not be hindered by the faster tanking weapons. If it lacks TPS at all, you could easilly shuffle some points to take Killing Machine
and use the procs from that to boost your TPS.
((Example KS build: http://ptr.wowhead.com/?talent=j0xhZhxexVbIkczbsst0g
Note I removed Runic Power Mastery
to max out KS. You could take out SoB
instead of Virulence as Frost generates alot of RP anyway.))Unholy/Blood:http://ptr.wowhead.com/?talent=jbxhachcoZ0xcZcghhtczxh0obo
This spec utilizes Passive Abilities (Necrosis
) for 1Target Threat and UBlight
for AoE. Magic Suppression
reduces magic damage, along with Spell Deflection
making this spec a decent (IMO anyway) Magic tank. I'm still undecided about AMZ though.
From the talents, this spec would utilize the Broken Promise
very well due to how Necrosis and BCB work (weapon damage) so slower would = better here. And no Internal CD afaik.
I'm still wandering whether to take 1 point from Spell Deflection and stick it into Crypt Fever
for 1 more disease for higher BB/BCB, but thats at the discretion of the spec I guess.
If anyone has anything to say / comment about the spec's, would be nice to get any info or opinions :)
Now, I do understand that 2h is superior in many ways. I, like many others, would prefer some constructive replies as to why certain things may not work within the specs, rather then the usual "N00b L2P" comments that get posted.
Thank you for reading :)
