Hi wdm, if you're referring to my Frost tanking suggestions, it can solo regular quests just fine, but not the various group quests and elite mobs in Northrend. For the latter you need a Blood tank build.Frost 5man guide: http://epicadvice.com/questions/3099/death-knight-dual-spec-which-tree-to-tank-heroics/3109#3109Blood soloing build: http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#jcEMqI0IsbMbssxhxZ0g:GipM0mThe Frost spec/playstyle depends on having a healer, but gives you more snap AoE threat than any other build, making it perfect for 5mans or leveling with a healer buddy. The Blood spec provides the best possible self-healing, which is required for soloing hard group quests and elites, but the threat ramp up is not nearly as fast as Frost, making it more challenging to tank 5mans with trigger-happy AoE-spamming DPS.Once you get >5000 gearscore, then even the Frost spec can solo most world mobs and group quests, though. Just use Death Strike in place of Obliterate when you need to heal, and use your cd's.
