View Full Version : Need help in gear check - def + ress

10-25-2009, 01:54 AM
Ok i need help, i want to start tanking in Heroics for the moment. My Gear so far is:
Armory (http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Exodar&n=Vamppanzer)

Now here comes my questions:

After reading the tankspot Q/A for tanks (http://www.tankspot.com/forums/f200/41907-frequently-asked-questions.html) I found that i can combine res with def.

so in my humble maths i got.

Defense 468
Resillience 230 = 345 defense rating = 70 Defense

Hence Defense is 468+70 = 538.

Am I doing this correctly guys? or am I totally off? I just can't find purples with Defense on them, and runing with blues gives me only 20k life, while this scheme gives me over 23.5 unbuffed

Still low on health, since most DPS ppl will have the same amount.
But on HC's this should indeed be enough ^^

You are indeed PvE uncrittable. Using that much DPS gear to tank with though.. that sounds quite frightening, and tbh, even lower stamina blues would probably be a better choice overall.

Aside: Don't forget shoulder/cloak enchants with defense, they'll help you out quite a bit. Get on them sons of hodir dailies!

Thanks, first i become uncrittable, now i work on my stamina... and H will do the rest equipment wise...

Bear in mind I haven't done any H yet.

Tks for your answer.
