View Full Version : What now? Need advice

So i ran toc too many times to look back on, ive tried my hardest to enchant/gem my gear to maximize capability.

Its hard to gear early on since nobody does naxx anymore so does anyone know things i could get so i could go straight into ulduar and from there into ToC

Heres my armory The World of Warcraft Armory (http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Archimonde&n=Mordana)

Any help on spec/gemming/gear is greatly appreciated :)

You should run 5man ToC a bit more at least, enough to get the epic tank ring from there. It's pretty nice and you probably wont replace it until you get one from 25man ToC or Heroic 10man ToC.

Just farm those emblems of conquest and buy more upgrades. Some of it maybe bit useless for you with the block rating and value itemization, but the rest should serve you nicely. Start doing daily heroics, run 10 and 25man VoA and try to your best to get into 10man ToC and Ony.

Get rid of the haste trinket. If you didn't get brewfest trinkets run Hc AN until you get Gossamer from there.

You're right on track so just keep on going. ;)

You'll have to buy every single piece of gear that is possible to purchase w/ Conquest Emblems first. That takes about 520 Conquest Emblems, although you already have a few pieces, so it will take less for you.

You can get roughly 50 Conquest Emblems per day if you run all 12 H dungeons per day, which means roughly two weeks worth best case scenario. Just farm the hell out of 5mans.

Go to the Horde Conquest Quartermaster in Dalaran, look at everything they have, and if it is an ilvl upgrade to your current gear (or takes it from blue to purple), add that to your shopping list. There are some slots the Conquest Quartermaster does not have, like a cloak iirc, that you'll need to buy from the Valor Quartermaster instead.

Add up the emblems cost for all of that, figure out a plan for farming all those emblems, and go do it.

Also do the H daily everyday to start collecting triumph emblems. It takes 15 days to get the Triumph T9 shoulders and 15 more to get the T9 hands, then another 25 days for the chest and 25 for the helm. Close to the 3months, unless you can get into a ToC10 group at some point during that grind.

Use WoW Heroes - World of Warcraft PvE character info & ratings (http://wow-heroes.com) to measure your progress, it will give you an idea of when and how ready you are to tank certain raid content.

Yes that's a lot of farming, and you'll be complete burnt out w/ 5mans by the time you're done, but getting as close as possible to BiS gear in every slot is the minimum expected of anyone who wants to tank ToC 10. Most guilds with any prospect of success will take nothing less, and even then the odds are against you, and you may find you'll have to go dps initially in order to get into one.

On the bright side, as a tank you'll have no problem putting together pugs for it all and chain farming them, and will probably even meet some skilled, chill players along the way, some of whose guilds might need a decent DK tank.

All the above info is great, and people don't do naxx any more because there's no reason to - all the gear is outdated.

Oh, stop slacking and level your professions. The stam bonus from mining and JC will do wonders for your HP.
