View Full Version : Needing some advises on gear :(

06-15-2009, 09:19 AM
So, yesterday I was doing 10man naxx with some guildies.
Long story short. I only do 10man naxx and heroics (and ocassionally... on a very rare basis OT things in Ulduar) but the thing is, although I'm full epic'd and I'm MTing the raid... I do feel I'm falling behind on stats.
I have gemed/enchanted some of my gear pieces for expertise/hit rating 'cause if I don't then my expertise would fall down to like 16 and my hit rating to 180 or less.

Yesterday I got Gauntlets of the Master - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=39197) and I also have the T7 gloves but I do not use them 'cause it kills my expertise yet the guildies say "you should rise your avoidance a bit more", right now I'm around the 45% pure avoidance

My question is: Is it advisable to sacrifice my gems/enchants/exp_gear to get more stamina and avoidance?

This is me: The World of Warcraft Armory (http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Agamaggan&n=Compa)

Thanx for the help.

It's common for guildies to advise that a warrior gets as much avoidance/stamina as they can...they see big hp numbers and think that is what makes a succesful tank. Your hp is fine for naxx 10. I would change the hit gems for stamina though. You could reach your hit cap with a food buff. Also, Kyzoc's Ground Stompers would be nice for ya.

On a side note...I don't know if you remember me, but we got drunk together during Brewfest on Agamaggen once. LOL. If this is the same Compa. You also were the reason I stayed fury for so long during tbc. lol.

Compa at the end of the day what makes the difference between a good tank and a bad one is whether or not the raid is alive, you are alive..ish and the boss is dead.
Its hard finding a good balance between avoidance and threat if you pug a lot of your raids. My advice is find a good raiding guild and adjust your play style to meet the raids. If they are hard hitting peeps, go for more threat, might help if ya start the pulls with a mocking blow or something or other then build your threat. If the dps is a bit low, adjust you're avoidance to meet the healers mana pool. Basically a tank needs to have a solid group of raiders to develop and progress. But thats just my two cents.
Hope I helped ya out a bit:)

Also, replace your meta with Austere Earthsiege Diamond - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=41380) and enchant your new gloves with expertise if you're concerned about it. Your current hit and expertise levels are more than adequate for naxx10. Unless you're having threat issues, I would focus on effective health and avoidance and use either Rhinolicious Wormsteak - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=42994) or Snapper Extreme - Spell - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=57437) to supplement your threat generation. Also, you might consider using Elixir of Expertise - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=44329) with a guardian elixir if you're doing content you have on farm.

There are more sources of threat generation than just your gear. Use everything available to you.

Thanx a lot guys :)
Teslin, I DO remember you!!! :D Thanx for the advises n_n it's been a long time!
You know, my best friend used that display for a long time. That caught my eye, then your name was familiar and then getting drunk haha.

I will do my best to get those boots. also I think I'll use the T7 gloves and replace the gems, then compensate the loss of expertise and hit rating with the elixir and the food. Thanx a lot :)
