I understand this is here for completeness, but do everyone a favor and don't tank Unholy. It deals the worst with damage (no stam scaler or damage reduction), has the worst threat (AoE isn't really a concern even as blood if you have two brain cells to rub together), and the worst cooldown.Don't get me wrong. I once loved Unholy tanking but it's just a liability now.

Seconded. As a very understanding DK tank in an extremely casual guild, even I have to admit that this article should have come with the huge disclaimer "only here for the sake of completeness, please do not take this article as a validation to current day unholy tanking", because there is none. Unholy is the PVP tree, that is its greatest strength, and any other support in other directions is "token", halfassed, and only still there as a shadow of the flexible matrix attempted and failed with the deathknight.There is a sound argument for unholy DPS, but unholy tanking isn't "fading", at the time of this post it is long dead. Tanking is not a role you can afford to mess around with, for there is no one to do your job for you if you slack or fail.
