View Full Version : Warrior Tank Gearing Questions

12-11-2009, 01:00 PM
Well first off I'd like to preface this by saying that I got this toon to 80 about 3 weeks ago. Basically our 10 man tanks have been a rather fickle lot and its now fallen to me to take over tanking duties for ICC. If you think I'm geared enough or not let me know. Mostly I'd just like to improve my gear in the best way possible, and you all know what you're doing so I figured might as well ask.

The World of Warcraft Armory (http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Blood+Furnace&n=Test)

When I originally was gearing this toon up I gemmed for expertise since I was lacking threat. I've picked up a few pieces with expertise on them since then. So its probably time for a regem. EH ftw. Any guidance on the regemming would be the bees knees. Also I have a few other pieces of gear that I can swap in and out. I'll leave it to you all to tell me if i'm retarded for even having to debate on these switches. The pieces I have now that aren't equipped are The Leviathan's Coil - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=45112) and http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47711. I also have Eitrigg's Oath, The ony trink, and Titanguard. Although I'm pretty sure these should just stay hidden away in my bank. I switched to the axe because I'm an orc for the extra expertise.

I know you all have been assaulted with a wall of text. One last thing, I do have a trophy that I can use. I was leaning towards just getting the 9.5 gloves and snagging up the 232 pants with easy triumph. Let me know if I should spend the trophy elsewhere. Thanks again for bearing with me.

Yes, keep Eitrigg's oath hidden plz. Although it might actually be good for some hardmodes that will probably favor avoidance.

Yes replace legs asap

Don't use any hybrid gems that don't have stamina. Re-gem for more EHP that way.

Also... dude... Mind amplification disk but you DON'T use the 885 armor to glove enchant? PUT THAT ON NOW! imo.

Things look decent otherwise though, I'm actually kind of impressed if you just hit 80 3 weeks ago. I'd say you're ready for ICC10, idk about 25, but I also haven't tanked 25 yet. Once you re-gear and gem you will have more EHP and probably get close to that line. Also get the 30 stam/15 resil to shoulder enchant
