Another note specifically for DK DPS.TAKE ARMY OF THE UNDEAD OFF YOUR BARS. IT SCREWS UP MY VENGEANCE AND AGRO.

While I think removing it from the action bar is probably the best idea, at least don't use it while I'm tanking a dragon. Please.

There are three times when you should use Army in a 5-man:a. Tank is dead, wipe is going to happen if you don't. (Preferably, battle rez while the Army is going nuts.)b. Healer is dead or OOM, tank is going to die without help.c. Tank asks you to/it's part of the accepted tactics for a boss battle.It is, however, worth keeping on your bars for that one run in 20 where it stops a wipe. :)

Also for DK DPS, Blood is your TANK SPEC, not your DPS spec. No I don't care it's low content, I don't care if you do more because you didn't learn frost or unholy, and for the love of god, blood presence does nothing for your dps either just stop it.

As a DK, I can't upvote Amanda's rules enough. Generally even on boss fights where Army is often used, I will ask before the fight starts if the tank wants army or not and go by what they say. It saves so much hassle for everyone involved if you do that. Also a DK battle rez note for non DK's. We can't do it unless we have enough runic power. It doesn't work as easily as a druid's. Runic power is like a blue rage bar...so sometimes we are at empty and yelling at us to "rez X now!" is not going to make it fill faster.

@ravyncatI don't "really" have a DK (who doesn't have at least one eh? eh? show me an account without one, I'll do something crazy and insane like eat a live bat. Or something. Maybe a sandwich...), but does Horn of Winter have a runic power thing like Battle Shout for warriors? It gives me a fair amount of rage just from using it. Would a macro that set HoW to go off before your b-rez work?

@Mrjak: Horn of Winter gives you 10 Runic power, while Raise Ally needs 50. So no, it doesn't work, though it helps getting it a bit faster.Sometimes while dpsing you are all out of runic power and runes, so you are waiting for some rune to regenerate and spend it to gain the needed runic power to Raise Ally.

@MrJakI don't have a DK anywhere on my account. I've never managed to get one out of the starting zone, something about them just doesn't gel very well with me (beyond the fact that my main is a Hunter and therefore fighting in melee range makes me feel icky).

@mrjack no DK here either, other than the one holding the name LiuKang for my Panda Monk (can't believe it wasn't taken!)
