What do I fill in the joint where a sheet of drywall and Durock meet. Thinset or joint compound? Tape, fiberglass mesh tape or nothing? Note: I'm putting on the Durock.

What is going on top of the durock?

Durock and drywall joint is where the shower stall ends. Tile will be on the durock and part of the drywall (36" up from the floor all the way around the bathroom).

The Concrete Board/Drywall joint is ususally taped with drywall mesh and finished with joint compound.

I take that back...because it needs clarification.

IF the 'joint' is behind tile, then tile mesh and thinset can be used.

IF the joint is outside or above the tile, then drywall mesh with joint compound should be used....OR you can use tile mesh and thinset with a layers of joint compound above that...

You will not want to use regular joint compound on that joint as it will not take the moisture. You will want to use Durabond 45 setting compound for this application.
