View Full Version : In Need of Tank Advice

07-17-2009, 12:06 AM
I have been tanking for a long while, but have mostly been in a bank guild with my other toons and have not been able to get much advice from others.

I really am cluelss to what I am able to tank with my gear.
here is my armory link: The World of Warcraft Armory (http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Eitrigg&n=Sallypally)

Should I be able to tank all heroics with my gear? Can i do VOA yet?
Do I need more stamina and less defense since i am above the cap?

I have never tanked in a raid, but am eager to try. If there is any advice that anybody can give me, I would really appreciate it.

Your spec is horrible well that may be too harsh but its not good and your glyphs need changing

probably start with the cookie cutter build

Talent Calculator - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#sZA0xA0uMusIufdts0x0c)

Gearwise you should be easily able to tank any heroic instance and could start on naxx 10 although your chanting and gemming is a bit AC/DC. Try reading

in regard to your enchants, i would suggest switching the agi on cloak and stats on bracers for defense - this will then allow u to switch the jc gems from def to sta if thats what ur inclined to do

for the blue slots i prefer i go for the enduring green gem - def + sta - i preferred to go more balanced then focusing on one stat over another

in regard to red slots, for now its preferable to go for the purple (regal?) dodge + sta gem, although this will change in 3.2 - due to the DR changes to the various avoidance stats

finally SP on ur weapon?? we havent had to use spellpower in a looooong time, our talents take care of that. i would suggest either a titanium chain or a str/ap enchant

in regard to spec, i preferred to get divine guardian over divinity - u get more mitigation with sacred shield up compared to the 3% increase in healing taken but thats a personal preference

i would also suggest that u switch out glyph of hammer of justice for glyph of seal of vengeance, the 10 more expertise should help out with threat especially considering u didnt go with imp HoJ - improving its range doesnt really do anything for u...

also if u have threat issues, i would suggest switching out the righteous defense glyph for the glyph of judgement but thats up to u

in regard to minor glyphs, i would say go with glyph of lay on hands over glyph of BoW - y have both wisdom and might durations extended when u can only have one on urself at any given point in time. lower loh cd would be much preferable

actually i retract this statement, swithc out righteous defense glyph for divine plea glyph - u have it up 100% of the time (or should!!) = 3% more dmg reduction is nothing to laugh at

I suggest you to switch one JC gem in youre leg to gain the socket bonus.
and youre red jc figurine i suggest you to put 2x24stam orver parry stam gem.(with that this trinket give 2.2khp)

Keep in mind to do AN heroic each day for gettin the 2 drop in there trinket and belt if my memory was good.

You in good shape for doing any heroic now after 2-3 drop you ready for 10naxx.
If youre not lucky in UP heroic i suggest doing you daily tournament for gettin the tank weapon there.
