If you're going with a BG focus, Blood can be one of the best specs for PvP depending on the battleground you are doing. In Eye of the Storm, Twin Peaks, and Warsong Gulch, Blood DKs make one of the best flag carriers in the game right now specifically because of how bloody hard to kill they are! If you enjoy Isle of Conquest and Alterac Valley, Blood DKs make one hell of an effective tank for the end boss in either BG. For Strand of the Ancients, Arathi Basin, and Battle for Gilneas, you're probably better off going Frost or Unholy though, simply because those BGs aren't so much about tanking anything (be it NPCs or other players) as they are about doing Damage or Crowd Control.Just my two copper, and if anybody has any disagreements/counter-points, I'm always happy to have debates and discussions (so long as they are intelligent discussions).

Well I find that in Arathi Basin that a tank can be quite useful. In RBGs we usually stick our tank on Stables, I play Ally, and keep him as a look out there. This way it frees up the rest of the group to go after different bases and if the Horde tries to attack Stables, he can usually hold his own until teammates can come to his aid.I general, however, I agree that tanks are least useful in the node capture BGs but are awesome in tanking the end bosses or flag carrying.
