View Full Version : Quick Heroic and Badge Question

03-08-2008, 04:37 AM
What gear is notable in heroics for tanks?

And lastly what badge gear has the greatest gap between getting it with badges and the next upgrade in PvE content? For instance, I don't want to drop badges on something that Moroes would drop a comparable item or upgrade.

Also, it would be nice to have a sticky guide to patch gear. :D

Check Berginyon's guide on this site, has a list of all good tank gear, where it drops, and how it compares to others.

Yes, I'm aware of Berg's list. I'm looking for a just heroic list.

I can't think of any notable Heroic drops off the top of my head (other than The Sun Eater, how could I forget that!), or any lists specifically for them. As for the Badge gear, Veneretio wrote up a nice list comparing each piece with its raid drop counterparts, and ranking them in order of overall importance. The list was made before the 2.4 badge gear was known, so if you're looking for a list that includes those, you're out of luck, but for the current badge gear I doubt theres a better list out there. His website is TankingTips.com - A guide to tanking as a Warrior in World of Warcraft (http://www.tankingtips.com), and the blog I'm referring to is located at: Badge of Justice Tanking Pick Order - Warrior - TankingTips.com (http://www.tankingtips.com/2007/12/30/23-update-the-new-badge-of-justice-pick-order/)

and don't follow gearing guides word for word. They are often bias towards stam and block gear, which will turn you into druid with a shield who cant beat prince or tide walker.

Funny you should ask, I made a list of Heroic/Crafted/Exalted gear a while back, but people didnt really get the point of it


Just beware, it doesnt have any new stuff in it from badge rewards

For heroics, there are boots from Blood Furnace, Shoulders from Sethekk, Belt from Ramparts, Bracers from Steamvaults, Gloves from Botanica, and The Sun Eater from ramparts. Those are the only warrior plate tanking epics that I'm aware of.
