d-block elements

Do d block elements tend to gain or lose electrons to have the configuration of a noble gas?

The elements in the d block are the transition metals. Since they are metals, they are more likely to lose electrons and form cations. However, usually transition metals do not lose enough electrons to gain noble gas configurations.
