Originally I dropped Shockwave and 2 points out of S&B for more cruelty but decided tanking without shockwave just isnt an option :-P

Thoughts ?

I like it!

Only thing I'm not sure about is vigilence. On beta I've been tanking at 80 without it and haven't had any trouble holding agro.

If you're looking for threat (this is completely unfounded btw) imp def stance might be a good choice. I don't know exactly how it measures up to cruelty or imp revenge, but in my experience w/ 2/2 imp def stance it's up nearly all the time with decent avoidance.

Other than that it's very similiar to what I plan to run with.

But anyone have any thoughts (or theorycrafting hopefully) on which would be better for threat out of:

1.) Imp def stance
2.) Cruelty
3.) Imp revenge
4.) Vigilence

No imp. revenge, imp. defensive stance and gag order?

Edit: I'd say

1) Imp. defensive stance
2) Imp. revenge
3) Gag order
4) Cruelty
5) Vigilance

good points.. i think i might drop cruelty all together for improved Def Stance.

i like vigilance, it's my "save the enchancement shaman" abiltiy and I run with one of them often.

Cruelty is nice, 5% crit, but i think I could get along fine without it, threat isnt going to the issue it once was.

i see gag order as useless until 80 with Heroic throw.

Imp revenge i have now, but see "immune" a lot with it.

imp defensive i think is worth more than 2% crit, so i will grab that.

Don't forget that gag order also increases shield slam damage.

Great for grinding and...well seeing bigger numbers makes me happy.

very good point, forgot that part.

Ok so I am completely rebuilding my UI tonight, I am completely redoing my key binds and so i figured hell lets completely redo the spec and how we gear.

i am going to shoot for more EH/Mit/Damage and less avoidance.

In that spirit I give you the "ouch, ouch, ouch, ouch" spec.

It has been tough choosing at this stage, I have a nice lvl 80 build but trying to decide which to take now and which to wait to level with has been flipping a coin for me it seems. Trying to boost damage at this point, but I was considering going an arms/prot spec to level with and back to the prot once I get 80. Shockwave is nice to have and I love the S&B proc.
