    If you've been tanking regularly for everything... 5 mans, slivers, t1 raids, etc.

    Then its much the same general tanking stuff, with some fight-specific nuances.

    If you're new to tanking, I'm going to let someone else explain it, because I don't want to write an essay.

    Keep a good book or a nice pillow on your desk, you'll need it.

    It's still a terrible PvP spec compared to Marksman, though.

    The best advice I can give you is to get used to click targetting. Practice in T2s and elsewhere all that you can. This is especially useful for akylios. Being able to click the add you need to taunt or teleport to can save you a couple of seconds compared to tab targetting to it, and on fights like akylios, an apostle roaming around for 2 seconds can be very bad. Being able to do this is the difference between a good tank and a great tank. Also, I advise you don't use your single target taunt unless absolutely necessary, when it's on cooldown if things go awry you'll be SoL. Biggest problem I've personally had in HK is remembering when to and when not to interrupt molinars shouts, that's probably just b/c my short term memory has gone up in smoke though *shrug*
    When reading this post, let it be known, it was meant to be heard in a non-threatening, non-demanding way. Thank you.
