View Full Version : Warrior Tank looking for some advice

12-22-2009, 05:46 AM
Hi there folks
Im a new member to the site but have been reading the forums here for a good while.

Im looking for some advice on my current spec/gear .

Im a dps who also tanks 10 mans alot. The main thrust of my gearing up has been dps but i have snagged a good few tank items along the way.

The biggest weakness i can see myself is that im lacking tanking trinkets, bought the badge one last night but need a good viable second one.

Chest is new, need to finish gemming it , will probably go with a -30 sta gem and a 275 health chant on the chest too.

Armory link
The World of Warcraft Armory (http://eu.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Argent+Dawn&n=Taureen)

I have gathered up orbs for
Saronite Swordbreakers (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=67092)
and for
Indestructible Plate Girdle (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=45551) as well.

Any thoughts/Advice gladly recieved.

Your Gear looks pretty solid as well as most of your enchanting/gem choices.

My only recomendations is to drop the two +16 gems you have and shoot for pure +30 stamina. I don't think the gem bonus is worth it in either piece. Also the Titanium Shield Spike seems a bit.... Off. I'd get (me myself) +18 stamina to shield for the hp boost or maybe the +20 Defense rating if you need it after dropping the two yellows.

The shield spike i put on as an experiment for aoe tanking, my achiles heel.
Will drop it and stick on the 20 def chant so.
Think i will also change the shoulder chant to the 30 sta /15 resiliance chant as well. More HP cant go wrong.

Yeah, I did that recently once I was able to clear the defense cap without gem/enchants. And with today's progressive raiding environment, HP seems to be the king for a majority of the fights.

Would you say the belt and wrists are worth the cost to create?
Have the orbs handy just short of titansteel, nothing some time and cash wont solve.

I'd say they're worth it to create especially if you are short on Frost Badges. I'm working on mine now :(
