With Rune Strike, your best strategy is to litterly macro it onto every one of your rune based attacks (Bloodstrike, Obliterate, Icy Touch, Plaguestrike, Bloodboil). This way you never miss a proc. I DW Frost Tank, having tanked all but the end wing bosses in ICC 25/10 (alt, so pug alt groups). What I've seen is that as a DW tank, you have the most flexability when it comes to defensive stats. And while yes, slow dps weapons will give you the most threat, having a tank weapon in your OH can help a lot depending on the fight. Saurfang? Take a OH tank weapon with 2% parry (or even both, since threat dosn't matter much on the fight), Blood Princes and you're the caster tank? take a high HP weapon with the spellbreaker enchant for reduced spell damage (awesome if you took points in Acclimation). If you do Arenas, the dps weapons available are technically our BiS, since they're high stam and high damage.On Acclimation: 1/3 points will still make a difference, especially if there is constant damage. 2/3 is awesome if you can spare the points, but 3/3 is a waste of a point, and undoable unless you are 2H Frost. Check your fight, as most auras won't proc it, but direct damage will.
