Hi, first of all. hello to all tankspotters. I am a first time poster here, but a long time reader/supporter.

So here goes my post:

Here is my armory link: The World of Warcraft Armory (http://eu.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Lightbringer&cn=Delioncourt&gn=Lords+of+Azeroth)

I have just been a part of a guild merger, and as a result of this merger, my guild has only started being successful in Naxx runs. I am the guild OT for most of the runs. We have only done until Sapphiron, somehow we kept on wiping on the KT fight.

Anyway, as our guild continue to improve I want to improve as well. So my question is:

1) I have the EoH to purchase Waistguard of the Living Iron + Heroes Dreadnaught Breastplate + Heroes Dreadnaught Handguard should I go ahead with this purchase and replace my current gear? Am I losing too much stamina and expertise by switching? You can refer to a quick comparison in WOWhead here: Item Comparison Tool - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?compare=43587:37645:44198;40689:39622:39611&focus=0)

2) I wanted to suggest to our guild if I can MT some of the bosses since I get rage-starved by OTing (huhuh not getting hit), do you think I have the right to MT some encounters, here is the armory link of our MT: The World of Warcraft Armory (http://eu.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Lightbringer&cn=Ranves&gn=Lords+of+Azeroth) (I have already MT some of our boss encounters but I feel I am not carrying my weight as OT in single tanking situations.)


3) I have a question in the KT fight but I believe this is not the place to ask it. I'll post on the appropriate thread then.

4)hmmm, I was thinking I had tonnes of questions but that seems to be it. Any other suggestions are welcome.


Thanks in advance to your suggestions.

My main concern would be your cloak. Is this what you regularly use for tanking ? is it left over in a switch from your arms build ?

I will say that if you are in a single tank fight (Loetheb/Malygos/ect) you should not be in Prot spec. It means you have to pay for crafted DPS gear but you could be doing a few thousand DPS instead of 800. 1 tank fights don't need an OT and you'll be better off learning the Fury ropes rather than always asking the other tanks to swap to their dual spec.

I have Durable Nerubhide Cape - Item - World of Warcraft (http://wotlk.wowhead.com/?item=43565) for my cloak and this for my other ring Keystone Great-Ring - Item - World of Warcraft. (http://wotlk.wowhead.com/?item=37784)

I am currently sneaking this post from work so I can't logon to WOW at the moment.

Thanks for that I will sure to switch to my ARMS spec...but you did mention FURY. hmmmmm
