View Full Version : Rebalancing Stats

Hey guys! I'm looking for some suggestions and input with regards to my gear currently. As you can see from my armory, I have access to several best-in-slot items, but my current combination of gear has me concerned.

The gear I have on right now is my default boss tanking gear. I switch out a ring and a trinket for the majority of earlier Naxx to boost threat/dps.

The problem:
I feel like my block is too low. A few weeks ago I switched from some block rating legs to the Malygos25 expertise ones I have on now and dropped from about 20% block to 17%. Currently, I'm considering picking up the T7.5 chest in place of the OS one just to bump my block up some. Another option is to start running Heroic VH again in hopes of getting the new Autoblocker, or simply re-equipping the Autoblocker. Or maybe I could stop passing on that trash-drop block value cloak?

What do you guys think? I know a lot of high-end tanks have the T7.5 chest in favor of the Dragonstorm (maybe because of bad RNG?), but I'm unsure if it's the right move for me. Any other feed back would be appreciated as well. Thanks!

Your gear looks pretty good.

If you want to up your BV, you could certainly get the cloak from 25 man Naxx. Also there are a few other epics that drop that have BV on them.

Inexorable Sabatons - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=39717), it's BoE, so if you got the gold to blow you might even be able to buy them in the AH.

I have these also from Naxx, Bindings of the Hapless Prey - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=39764)

Your def looks good, so you could certainly trade off a little for BV depending on what your tanking. I also have the badge shield that I use for trash tanking, I put the +40 BV enchant on it. If you can get the T7.5 chest I say go for it, can never have to much gear imho :)
