    Death Knight Tanking in MoP

    So, after clearing TOES, HOF and Vaults with my warlock when MoP was fresh with my Warlock, I decided this wasnt very fun anymore and I wanted a break.

    Now I want to get back again, but I want to play my DK as a tank. Ive thought about becoming a tank for the next big raid (not ToT) and I was wondering how are DK tanks in MoP compared to Dragon Soul patch in Cata? (Played my DK tank during that). I had a blast with it, and thought it was really fun in Cata. So I was wondering if it is anything like that? And are they strong tanks or would I get picked over by a druid,warrior, paladin, monk?

    Thanks in advance. Havent touched my DK since Cata so, hehe
    My dad once told me that aslong as religion existed, even I could make my own fantasy buddys

    DK Tanking survival is about the same or greater as the other tanks, but their raid utility is next to non-existent, and anything that they bring DK DPS can also bring.

    Personally i played a DK untill after our first Heroic Ji Kun kill i swapped to my 40 less ilvl Paladin and the difference was staggering how much raid utility there was in comparison to my DK.

    So for a heroic progression yes you might get picked up over a Pally or Monk but just for casual tanking a DK is still a fantastic tank for ability for survival and damage output.

    We're squishy as hell, stack mastery.

    Plays like Cata, hence my lack of motivation. Changes are only in the frequent talent switches for specific cooldowns.
