Being a DK is so much more than pushing one button. Pathetic.
I see no problem with mashing a single button versus the 5-6 you are required to do every 2 seconds to tank effectively. I have never seen another MMO that required you to hit something every 2 seconds to be effective -- such a retarded system. I routinely group with higher level rangers, monks, and sorcs -- if I am not hitting something whenever I can, they have a tendency to pull aggro.
I would recommend placing Ravaging Darkness above Vexing. I use something similar but I manually perform the mitigation and energy crit chains when I need them.
You don't have to use macros if you don't want to. I spent the first 40 levels without one but I find that it makes life easier for tanking.
