Coming from Druid/Hunter/Warrior...not at all. I have a lot more free bar space on this guy so far.


coming from a priest/rogue/mage (yes I have played all aspects of RPM at 70 :P) I have no room

Guess I just had a lot more macros on my other toons, heh. My bars were all completely full on those 3 toons. I at least have a few free spots atm on my DK. I'm sure I'll end up with more binds when I start arenaing, but right now, not so much.

I don't think any class is as cluttered as a hunter :(

I have 12 keys on my keyboard and 5 on my mouse that I use. Of those, all of them have Shift modifiers. But only about 6 of them have Control modifiers for me.

This makes for about 40 keybinds per character for myself.

How hard is it to find tank gear as a leveling DK? Is it needed?

That's really been the only standout thing when healing DKs is they take shittons more damage than every other tank, but I figured it was mostly a gear thing and everyone

It's really easy to get and most of the time you aren't going to have to lose a piece of DPS gear to pick it up (via quest rewards).

EDIT: In each instance there really aren't too many drops per boss (usually 3 or so) and in each instance there are 2-3 items you may want for DPS and tanking. I usually ran each instance till I got all the gear I wanted (which only took a few times). I would suggest getting tank gear because it makes finding groups easier and thus gets you through the dungeons faster.

Can anybody who has done heroics say what kind of gear level you need to tank heroics? Can this gear be easily and quickly attained right when you hit 80? And any other tank gearing tips for DK's at 80. Thanks!

You should have mostly blue tanking stuff and be near or at the def cap (540).

There's also a massive shortage of tanking trinkets outside of Naxx, and I was short of the def cap till I got Seal of the Pantheon. I'd suggest running Halls of Lightning for this.

Tanking is a joke now since holding aggro is easier than it's ever been for any tanking class. It's just hard to stay alive sometimes in hard hitting heroics and raids.
