View Full Version : Some Question Regarding Gear with Block

01-19-2009, 12:54 AM
I think i got a terrible opening post to my 1st thread at http://www.tankspot.com/forums/f97/43909-rate-my-target-tank-gear.html

i think most people ignored :( because of the gear i choose for my chardev

Couldn't get the answers i want so i wanna asked again :D
* All question is for Boss Situation

1. How much block value and rating is recommended(I.E Any min amount like 540 for defense). My research tells me rating is bad, value is OK threat and dps-wise.

2. Let say i have 20% dodge, 20% parry, 15% block rating. Is dropping 1% dodge/parry to increase 2% block rating + some block value worth it ?

Let's say Legplates of Inescapable Death (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=39258) vs Heroes' Dreadnught Legguards (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=39612)

In current content it really doesn't matter. 17, 17, 17 is what i tell my tanks to shoot for for naxx, and get upgrades as they drop.

you will find that your gear upgrades will also improve your overall stats.

I always tell our tanks to balance their stats. So aim for 20-20-20 but if you can for a warrior tank try (IMO) to push block value and dodge instead of parry.

Also dont neglect your hit/expertise and where you can squeeze in a couple of gems to lift these important stats.

If you have both, wear the T7 for bosses and the Inescapable for heroics, trash, and Loatheb.
