My DPS-specced Death Knight would take the "tank" ring over the "melee dps" ring any day. They have the same amount of crit rating. The expertise isn't ideal, but I'd take it over haste. A good deal of stamina for when I need extra hit points. And strength. Lots of strength. Probably more strength than I'd be able to find on most so-called "dps" rings out there. The tanking ring strength gives me the same amount of attack power as the dps ring, more once you factor in strength boosting talents. As for the loss of agility for taking the tank ring, it's a second-tier stat at best for Death Knights. Like haste and expertise. It provides some benefit, but it's item points that would be better spent elsewhere (like in more strength or crit).It's probably a bit of a misnomer to call a ring like Band of the Kirin Tor the dps ring. It's really more of a rogue/hunter dps ring. Us strength-loving dps get some benefit out of it, but really only if there isn't anything else available.
