    For DPS you have to dump all of the tanking gear. You need stamina, strength and critical strike ratings. The tank gear is just for survival and thats not what you need for a dps. All that defense rating stuff is bad for DPS too, thats pure tanking gear. You must get rid of that if you want to have 2-3k DPS.

    Source(s): I have a LVL 80 paladin tank/dps. If I use the tanking gear my dps is only 1k, but with the dps spec and dps gear its easily 2-3k dps.

    I don't know a whole lot about DK's considering I'm a warlock but the obvious answer would be to go for strength and less stamnia, your DPS not a tank so don't worry to much about stamnia, get a lot of strength and don't use your sockets on stamnia.

    You can also go in a instance or H instance and tank and ask to roll on DPS gear
