Short summary - fights vary.Start on normals, not heroics. Even if you are geared for heroics.For multiple mobs in general - Drop Death and Decay on top of yourself and Death Grip the caster to you (or ranged - in fact if there is a hunter type mob in the enemy group, its better to death grip him and strangulate the caster). The rest of them will run to you through your death and decay and by that time you should have diseases up on the one you death gripped and can now spread to the rest with pestilence. After that it's what others have said. Try to keep blood shield up with Death Strike, Rune strike when its available, Heart Strike in between those. Keep bone shield up whenever its off cooldown. Blood boil when its a free one or if you need help gathering aggro at beginning.Opinions vary of course between tanks but this is a general strategy and will get you started until you find your own groove. Tanking is fun and we need more of them. Sometimes you are the hero, sometimes its thankless. Good Luck!
