View Full Version : starting SSC/TK - what gear should I look for

02-21-2008, 04:48 AM
My guild recently started on 25 mans we have downed gruul and mag with me as MT.
We have managed to kill voidreaver as well.

I would like some input on upgrades I need to tank successfully in SSC and TK.
Stats I need to improve, other enchants, drops I should look out for?

As a sidenote I would like to say that Prince has never been kind to me to give me a T4 headpiece, despite many months of killling him.

Apart from needing the resist NR/FrR stuff for hydross, if you could take mag you can handle most bosses in SSC/TK already apart from vashj/kael and the shaman from fathom-lord encounter.

If there's a headpiece you'd want to go for, then I'd suggest Thottbot World of Warcraft: Battleworn Tuskguard (http://thottbot.com/i33421) from Hex Lord Malacross in ZA. It's comparable to T5
Currently your armory shows your dps gear.

If there's a wishlist you'd wanna go by I'd suggest taking a look at Warrior Berg's Tank Gear Rankings (02/10/2008 - wow 2.4) - TheorySpot (http://www.tankspot.com/forums/gear-lists-rankings/32083-berg-s-tank-gear-rankings-02-10-2008-wow-2-4-a.html)
Helped me out with researching my upgrades

I feel like an idiot asking for tips when in dps gear :D

Since you're wearing the Zul'jin chest, I'll echo the comment about getting the helm off Hex Lord. Since you can kill VR, get the T5 Shoulders right away. S2 < T5. 'Nuff said about that. I would also suggest getting the belt and cloak from badges.
