Am I spending to much effeort to maitain a balanced tank instead of just going for EH? I play with a casual group of friends doing 10man NON-hardmode content. I feel successful but, want to be all I can be... Any tips? What would you change?

Would you use the Faceguard of Wrath or Conqueror's Siegebreaker, provided you would lose the 2p bonus if wrath is used.

Peacekeeper blade or Gleaming Quel'Serrar?

Honestly, you'd be fine going with either piece in both cases. 34k unbuffed is plenty for Uld10 regular, or even starting hards, probably. The Wrath helm is a nice upgrade over the 8.5 tank hat, unless you really find yourself missing that 10% crit to Devastate, which you shouldn't. Similarly, as long as you don't drop under 540 def with it, Quel is the way to go, as it'll give you a nice avoidance and armor boost when it procs.

Unless you find you miss the 50-ish stam, you might try swapping in The Black Heart for the Brewfest trinket. Much like Quel, it's a really nice chunk of armor when it procs. For situational use in fights with mostly physical damage, it should win out over a bit of extra health easily.

While it's mostly a personal consideration for normal modes, you might look into talenting and glyphing shield wall and using it more proactively when you know certain boss attacks are coming.

Thanks for the advise. I am still working on BlackHeart, I think its a myth....!
