Above is a build focusing on generating as much TPS (Threat per second) as we can. If you find yourself as the off-tank or having to tank AoE pulls more often, you can take the three points from Improved Heroic Strike and place them in Improved Thunder Clap for the extra threat against four mobs. This build doesn’t sacrifice much in terms of survivability with the exception of not grabbing Improved Shield Wall, which most tanks agree is a waste of two talent points, since it’s used in preparation for heavy incoming damage and isn’t expected to last very long.
Above is a build meant to accommodate tanks that find themselves as the off-tank or for running dungeons/heroics while having to tank multiple mobs at once. This build utilizes Improved Thunder Clap for the added threat. It also encourages “stance-dancing” with Tactical Mastery which will allow for more utilization and faster pulls.
