I'm looking to roll a DK to solo some old content and mainly play as a Blood DK. Which race has noticeable benefits to tank with? I know a lot of people say Orcs are for PvP, but what about tanking? Does Tauren +STA really add up? I was reading somewhere that once you get to 90 it is only 1% of your total health. Also, does Tauren AoE stun effect raid mobs in raids?

The tauren racial isn't a stamina increase, it's simply a BASE hp increase (Base means before stam and HP modifiers).

I feel undead could be a good choice, they have WotF (breaks Fear, Charm, and Sleep) as well as Touch of the Grave, which deals extra damage on occasion and heals you to boot.

Tanking go undead for the small heal, dps go Orc. He'll I'd just stay Orc. I forget how heals work for dk, but isn't it based on dmg dealt or am I wrong?

Every Man is great for PvP, and decent for tanking, but not essential.

On Horde, undead is probably the best tank choice, maybe trolls. On Alliance, night elves are amazing-- they have a slight bonus to evade every single attack. Draenei are also decent, with a self-heal and a passive bonus to hit that is also good for DPS.

You're wrong, it scales with damage taken.

Is being night elf still the best option racial wise for tank DKs(well, tanks in general)?
