I'm not saying his was a good post, but you don't need to be an ass about it.
Ssoykesha...worst response to a DK thread I've seen in quite some time.
1) Crusader Aura does not affect anything except MOUNTED run speed. As such, if you see Crusader up in a fight, that Paladin is a moron.
2) Unholy Presence is something *EVERY* DK tank should have (obviously only if they are that deep into Unholy). Reasons?
A) You can enchant your boots with +22 Stamina instead of Tuskar's Vitality
Running out of the fire faster is good. Running into position as a tank is good. MUCH better than anything you suggested.
Frees up other DKs in the raid from the responsibility, so thats a DPS increase in some scenarios. This is why in the build I post below I do not get either CF or EP, so that if there are other Unholy DKs in the raid their disease bonuses don't get screwed with. This also allows me to put more points elsewhere for max survivability.
That being said, I use a slightly different tanking spec while tanking Sarth+3, but that one is pretty decent too, though I for the life of me don't understand why more tank DKs don't go 11 deep into Frost for Lichborne. Hell, during our first kill on Sarth +3 I got through all the super hardcore breaths, but he destroyed me at ~15% of his HP by landing 3 melee hits in a row. Additionally, with Death's Embrace minor glyph the self-healing from spamming DCs on yourself is useful at times in a pinch.
My Sarth +3 Spec
It's worth nothing that this is *NOT* designed for good TPS, instead maximizing survivability, self healing through all means available, etc.
