Death Knights have many options when it comes to gear. This is due to the fact that they can choose to play as a damage dealer or as a tank. Even knowing their role, depending on their talent spec the priorities for gear can shift subtlety. Which gear is best, which stats are best, how about glyphs and enchants?

Tank – Tanking Death Knights need to worry primarily about Defense until they reach the relevant cap, which is 540 for level 80 raids. Beyond that they also need to focus on Hit, Expertise, Dodge and Parry. While many Tanks are tempted to only focus on Stamina to give them as big a health pool as possible, the better method is to balance Stamina with a good bit of avoidance, granted from your Dodge and Parry.

Byron “Messiah” Mudry brings all this information together in one place as he explains in detail all about Death Knight equipment.
