View Full Version : Greater TPS

04-02-2009, 11:32 AM
The following link is my armory: The World of Warcraft Armory (http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Mug%27thol&n=%C3%8Ather)

Now, I find myself having trouble with maintaining threat on some 25 man heroics and unfortunately finding myself spamming "taunt" which is not a good sign especially on some instances I maintank. I understand that at minimum expertise should be at 22 (or 26 if I recall correctly off memory). Now I would like some constructive criticism (if any) on what I should do whether its enchanting or changing gems to increase my TPS....Thanks

Get the Armor Plated Combat Shotgun, put at least a Titanium Weapon Chain on your sword, get the reputation with the sons of hodir for the shoulder's enchant, get the rep with argent crusade for the head enchant, put an enchant on your shield .... pretty much read this threads:

First and foremost look at your talent spec, there have been many threads with math and people smarter then myself that have noted time and time again that deep wounds is more then worth it and will improve both your dps and tps. Go with the 15/5/51 spec:
Talent Calculator - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=LAM00fZhbZMItrx0zidIzsGo)

Next on the priority list - get your skills maxed. BS is a HUGE help allowing you to get those extra sockets that allow more expertise/stam/etc and mining gives you a health bonus I believe

Enchants - If you are rich get Accuracy on your weapon if not get the Weapon Chain but either way get both it and your shield enchanted. Also invest in getting 40 stam on ur wrists, it is a great addition.

Gems - don't pass up socket bonuses, switch the gem in your hands to be an expertise/stam or straight expertise and take advantage of the extra 6 stam bonus. You don't want to gem for defense you lose too much potential expertise and other stats that help your TPS. If you have issues with the defense cap you could replace that +8 all stats on your chest with the defense enchant.

Other HUGE upgrade that you need to get is the ranged weapon - Armor Plated Combat Shotgun - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=41168) it is by far best in slot and is basically REQUIRED for a prot warrior. It will also help with your defense was ell as letting you get another blue gem in there for stam.

Once all that is taken care of re-evaluate your rotation

and you should be good to go other then waiting for BiS drops such as Legplates of Sovereignty - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=40589) and Sabatons of Endurance - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=40297) as well as the obvious Last Laugh - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=40402)

EDIT: I agree with Arklay didn't notice your shoulder enchant, it is definitely worth it to run dailys for the Sons of Hodir to get the rep for Greater Inscription of the Pinnacle - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=44136)
