Beginning with the Wrath of the Lich King expansion, the Death Knight class has become quite an important tanking class in World of Warcraft. Not specially because their defenses, but due to the fact that they have a very nice AoE control. Anyway, if you have DK tank, or you’re planning to roll one, here’s a brief WoW key binding guide that will allow you to tank every instance like a pro.
However, before I tell you how to bind your main abilities, it’s important for you to know the rotation. Needless to say, you must have Blood spec and the Blood Presence on. So, for an excellent AoE threat or even single target threat, it’s best to start with Death and Decay, apply diseases, spread them with Pestilence, use Hearth Strike or Blood Boil to spend the second Blood Rune, then hit Death Strike a few times to deal some damage and heal yourself.
So, here’s a brief WoW key binding guide for your main bar:
Button 1: Sequence macro containing Icy Touch, Plague Strike and Pestilence. Hitting this macro 3 times, you’ll have diseases spread on all mobs.
Button 2: Heart Strike – a super powerful Blood combat style which hits 3 targets, excellent to build threat if you need to tank 2-3 mobs.
Button 3: Blood Boil – in case you need to tank more than 3-4 mobs, this ability should replace Heart Strike in your rotation.
Button 4: Death Strike – main damaging style that also heals yourself.
These are the 1-4 keybinds that I’ve been using since I play my DK. Anyway, if you want a complete WoW key binding guide for your character, no matter if it’s a DK or not, or even better, if you want to work with the complete keybindings and macros of the pros, I strongly recommend you this automatic WoW Key Binding Guide.
Works for any class!
