Infraction: 6. Do not post unless you have something new and worthwhile to say.
Message to User:
No, you'll "lay it out" now or you'll be banned permanently. Right now, all you're doing is shitting out hot air and cluttering up the thread with baseless dissent.
You're only getting a warning this time because a full infraction would result in a 24-hr ban, and I want to see some numbers out of you today.
Not that I'm saying Unholy is the best tank spec, nor Frost the worst; I'd rate it Blood, then Frost, and Unholy a very distant third. However, you really do need to apply factually correct arguments if you want to win people over to your point of view.
I will get to comparing the mitigation from both trees later, as you haven't actually laid out your math, and assuming that you've actually done the math is just as bad as not doing it myself, which I have been doing. In the end, I'm not trying to make an argument for the "best" tanking tree, to me that's worthless considering that Blizzard seems to wish every tree that DKs have available to them to be viable tanking trees, and best would almost always be "marginal" in difference. But these forums are about min/maxing, right? So I suppose some people will look for the best, I won't, not yet anyways. The main purpose of my original post in this thread was this:
As far as I'm concerned the only thing I would want a frost spec for is trash, and it's not neccesary, if you've got smart DPS, to have that instant snap agro control.
That kind of thinking is bad, and the close-mindedness of it is what infuriates many people trying to get into raids who are perfectly acceptable tanks. "Oh, you're a Frost tank? Don't need you then."
Mind you, if someone says that to me, I definitely don't want to be in their raid in the first place. But I'd rather not have such comments made uncontested on these forums where people come for advice. I'll admit I don't know everything and that I'm here for help myself, but I cannot possibly see this sort of comment as being the normal view of Frost tanking at the moment.
