So I am a fairly geared Prot warrior, and I am pondering whether to keep my Titanguard (lvl 232 -Ulduar), or get the new Falric's Wrist-Chopper from Halls of Reflection. The axe gives me -10 health, -0.88% hit, -0.04% less dodge, and -0.21% less parry. The rest of the losses were things I did not need anyways.

With the axe I get 1.83% block, and +10.3 block Value, and some more attack power for threat and added damage.

I have my current weapon enchanted with Blade ward, and want to have others comment on which I should pick before I make the switch.

Post Armory please. If you are an orc, you also get expertise with an axe.

Not trying to spam posts, but did you see my armory profile and are you able to answer the question?

Go with Titanguard.

Go with Titanguard.

Any specific reason why? From what I see, block can help a tank out a lot, and there seems to be more block all together then the missing stats I lose.

Block sucks, unless you need it for an anub add tanking set, get extra HP and avoidance is going to help you more, I might even wager the hit would end up being more threat than the small dps increase from the weapon.

Alright, seems reasonable. Thanks!
