View Full Version : Prot Tanking Spec

05-27-2009, 05:23 AM
With WotLK and all, after getting my rogue to 80 I decided to level a warrior. Just shy of 70, I'm looking to gear up and get tanking heroics and raids for my guild, but I'd like to know - is the spec I'm going for suited to it? Having a look around the forums and around my server at other tanks it doesn't look too bad, but I would appreciate more experienced thoughts on the matter :)

My biggest concerns are the talents in my sub specs (Arms & Fury) - Arms is to get Impale, and Fury is for the 5% crit chance on all abilities, though I'm not sure if I should have put 3 of those into Incite for the 15% extra crit chance on Cleave, Heroic Strike and Thunder Clap. This (I hope) was designed as an all-rounder tank, with some DPS capability within the role. Impale is mostly for Revenge and Shield Slam crits where a lot of my damage seems to stem from.

Anyway I'll stop waffling and hope to hear your thoughts on the matter!

Just use default spec 15/5/51 plx

You will have more then enough base crit (22%) on
TC, HS, Cleave (from incite)
Devastate (from SnB)
Shield Slam (from Critical Block)

In raids/group
With fury war or feral druid you will have 5% more crit
With muti rogue, retri pala or elemental shamy you will have 3% crit on target
That comes to arround 30% crit which is more then enough to have deep wounds all time up
