Total freaking noob needs help

Alright guys,

I'm new to the game and have to admit that while I consider myself a relatively astute individual, I find myself deeply confounded by the mechanics of both class and combat mechanics. Maybe I'm getting old, decrepitude grasping me firmly, the gentle smell of urine wafting up as I sit here trying to find my ass with both hands.

..or maybe its just overwhelming. Probably a little from column a, a little column b.

I have tried to read some of the player guides, however ever the starter portion assumes a general understanding beyond my comprehension (I JUST figured out that "VR" doesn't stand for "Very Rad", DOH)

Simply put, I need some very simple direct info to start with.

My goal is to play a Tank/DPS DK. I currently have a lvl 21 Redguard who has fought exclusively with a 1h weapon and shield, in heavy armor.

My skill choices are a complete dogs breakfast. I manage well enough to mash the keys and stay alive whilei kill things, however grouping with other players quickly reveals a significant skill/spec gap.

Can anyone start off by suggesting a strong utility build (doesn't have to be the absolute best) that I would NOT need to develop tourettes to be able to play...something i can level with. I'm not looking to group up too much now.

Thanks in advance to anyone who doesn't just link to a 30 minute similar to what i describe above.

    What platform and server are you on? I'd love to help and share knowledge but if I sit here and type we'd be writing books and going back and forth for days.

    Perfect. If you would like I would be more then happy to hook up with you and help you the best I can. I have a small guild of tight knit players that are on the higher skill tier. Not by any means saying we are the best but all of our core embers are very knowledgeable about the game and its mechanics. We mostly pvp but we do pve and have those that mainly pve as well. We'd be more than happy to help.

    Appreciate it.

    I like to figure things out myself if I can, but this is really a case of "you don't know what you don't know"

    Tried to add your gamer tag, tried messaging you here also, fail on both counts. Let me know whenever your free and we'll get to work.

    Thanks again!
