Threat build

With 3.1 coming this week it's dual spec time and I'll be taking two tank builds. I've analysed the various survival options in previous posts.

Now it's time to look at threat. I suspect that this may become my default tanking spec since already I'm having some problems keeping aggro.

After looking at Tankspot's excellent DK threat summary I decided I'd like to do an Unholy threat spec. Scourge Strike has added threat, Unholy Blight is great AOE threat.

The build is 23/0/48

Single target rotation is Icy Touch, Plague Strike, Scourge Strike, Blood strike, Blood strike, Scourge strike, Scourge strike, Scourge strike
RP dumps are Rune Strike and Death Coil

Multi-target rotation is Death and Decay, Icy Touch, Plague Strike, Pestilence, Unholy Blight, Blood Tap, Blood Boil


  1. How'd your unholy tank build end up working for you? I've been considering such a thing myself, despite the general nerfing unholy took in 3.1. You generating enough threat? Mitigating enough damage? Are you still using that build?


  2. It rocked, I'll post about my specs shortly
