View Full Version : Hit for threat?

08-26-2008, 09:21 AM
I'm a T4 geared tank, Khargar (http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=The+Scryers&n=Khargar) , with a good amount of badge gear. I've successfully tanked Gruul and Mag, but as we look at moving into SSC I'd like to work on getting my threat up a bit more. Right now, my hit is fairly low in my boss tanking set (don't mind the hat, I have Tankatronic Goggles (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=32473)). I was wondering, should I regem some more hit? I think I'm at 88 hit in my boss set. I do have a seperate "threat" set which raises my hit much closer to cap but drops a lot of other stats. Any gear recommendations or stuff I could change out?

I have the gear listed below in the bank or in my bags.. wondering if it's worth it to switch out some into my set.

Brooch of Deftness (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=33296)
Nightstrike (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=34783)

I know the normal rotations and generally have that down, just wondering if changing out gear would up my threat any.

Don't bother gearing for hit, expertise is better in every way and at your level you should be stacking stam in every slot available. All of your T6 quality gear (Legs, Belt, Chest) should have 15 stam gems as you won't be replacing them for a while.

Since you're on your way to SSC/TK you should just wait for VR shoulders instead of regemming your current ones.. brooch of deftness is an amazing neck, one that I used until I got my neck from Brutallus since RoS hates me.

I still believe however that you should focus on survival gear since your guilds DPS shouldn't be all that amazing.
