View Full Version : Tanking Weapon Comparison

12-14-2009, 10:56 AM
I have 4 weapons at my disposal.

Item Comparison Tool - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?compare=47899;45110;50268;50290)

I currently use Titanguard w/ Accuracy enchant (hit & crit).

I believe that, for non-threat related fights, I would use Rimefang's Claw.

Any suggestions on the enchant for the Claw?

Any suggestions/opinions that I should use the others for certain types of fights?

ardent guard would be best for EH fights with the added armor.

as far as threat goes i THINK (but do not know) that rimefang's claw would be best

It would be best on threat only if I was hit capped, which I am not w/o Titanguard:(

Hit is really not that important for threat (well not as important as expertise), I would any day use ardent guard, the only exception would be the axe if you are an orc and you need the racial expertise.

Ardent Guard - For EH fights. (Algalon, Anub, Icehowl)
Titanguard - For fights you don't want to miss an important taunt\interrupt. (Gormok, (H)Lord Jaraxx)

Rimefangs Claw - Avoidance. (Anub Adds, Gunship, Saurfang)

Faric's Wrist-Chopper - Block set. (Can't really see any use except for Anub adds or tanking heroics)

Edit: As for Enchants, I would enchant according to what you need when you have that specific item equipped. (i.e. If your way low on hit with Ardent Guard equipped, put Accuracy on it.)
