View Full Version : Some gear advice

Well any generic gear input would be welcome, but my main focus would be whether it would be worth it to change my helm or not.
Current helm and gear: The World of Warcraft Armory (http://eu.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Scarshield+Legion&n=Baervar)

Alternative: The World of Warcraft Armory (http://eu.wowarmory.com/item-info.xml?i=46166)

I've got the badges for it but i kept putting off getting because:

1. yellow gem sockets suck for tanks that are hit and def capped. Actually i'm way over the hit cap D:
2. i prefer pure avoidance over shield block generally
3. i have too much dodge atm so i figure i'm already running into a sort of soft cap where it grows much slowed, hence why i'd like raising parry now a bit more than dodge.

So what do you guys think?

1. The T 8,5 Helm would give you the 2pc bonus. The setbonus is AWESOME. As you said you allready got too much hit so it should be no problem to loose the +hit from your old helm.

2. Just because a socket ist yellow you don't have to use a green/yeloow gem! Especially when the socket bonus is not very attractive. I never go for socket bonus unless the bonus ist +6/+9/+12 stamina. Just go for pure stamina.

3. If you wan't so use green gems and got more than enough hit, I would reccomend to use deff/stam gems. NEVER, NEVER use crit/stam gems! You really gain nearly nothing from those crit gems as a tank!
