View Full Version : starting out in heroics and further

08-14-2009, 04:55 AM
Hi tankspot,

i've been a successful raiding protection warrior during Tbc times, but in wotlk i fell behind for RL reasons. and now i'm catching up again. I've done most heroics, but most heroic partys seem to run away when they see my low hp (24.5k unbuffed).

I'm sitting pretty above the 540 defense minimum. i'm also heavily using foodbuffs and armor and hp potions from my alchemist priest to make up for my lacking stats.

Can you spare any tips on how to better my spec/gear ?

here's my armory link : The World of Warcraft Armory (http://eu.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Lightbringer&n=Sajaki)

Your gear seems fairly normal for someone starting off heroics. The next part of your gearing of course will be accumulating conquest emblems to buy T8.5 level gear, so you'll be seeing some huge improvements soon as you start getting those pieces.

Off the top of my head, I'd recommend the following.

* Gather the materials and get the Armor Plated Combat Shotgun (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=41168) made, and put a +30 stam gem in there. This upgrade should last you a very long time.

* Run Normal ToC repeatedly and pick up some key iLvl 200 tanking pieces such as The Black Heart (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47216), Mercy's Hold (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47212), Legguards of Abandoned Fealty (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47171), Boots of Heartfelt Repentance (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47201), and Girdle of the Pallid Knight (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47227).

* Once you can start running the easier Heroics, just keep saving those conquest emblems and get ready to make huge jumps in gear!
