May 18th 2010 1:30PM "Bone Shield gives you damage reduction the entire time it's active, not just on hits that remove bones. The bones are only about the duration of the shield."

i don't think so Tim (i mean tom). read the tooltip again.

May 18th 2010 1:26PM Pro Tip: Don't "stack" raw avoidance. When you say stack I'm assuming you mean gem. Only gem for avoidance stats if there is a socket bonus with greater than +9 stam. for example +10x rating/+15 stam can go in these for socket bonuses....other than completing your meta gem requirements this, frankly, is the only time to gem anything other than straight stamina.

Maybe some people may disagree because of their "personal preference to stack avoidance" but in reality your personal preference as a tank should be to remain alive and healthy the entire fight, cuz when you go down everyone else usually follows....this is why you should be maximizing your effective health by stacking stamina and armor. :p

May 18th 2010 10:05AM boneshield is another reason why healers hate healing DK's. with an ICD on the bones used you are just randomly taking 20% reduced hits during the duration, whereas blood and frost tank cooldowns can be used situationally...this tends to be the reason why people choose these trees over unholy.

Forgive me though I understand this isn't a DK tank tree comparison. So a few words on unholy:

Used to be(key word used to) the premiere tank tree in Naxx. This was when SS was straight shadow damage(so ignored boss armor, unlike today where it hits like a wet noodle as tank with no armpen) and unholy blight was actually an insect swarm surrounding your body meaning effortless aoe threat!(dont forget IBF was 1min CD :D). Bone shield had like 30 bones on it too.(jk more like 5).

the more avoidance you have the better boneshield is! But considering the Chill of the Throne Debuff in ICC(-20% dodge) this was a direct nerf to boneshield up time and you're best not to try and stack avoidance to try and make up for that because of diminished returns and the effectiveness of Stamina gemming.

so in conclusion: the change to unholy blight, scourge strike, and Chill of the Throne has lead to the downfall and obliteration of unholy tanking....also considering it has a lot of talents for PVP and Pet management(and is top dps spec) then its obviously hard to make room for awesome tank talents a swell....hence why blood tree will be loaded with goodies in Cata

Some of you may still swear by it, after all if you cast anti magic zone while jumping through mid air it looks like someone is blowing huge bubbles(only benefit of being unholy)
