View Full Version : Tanking Gear viability (Warrior)

12-26-2009, 12:45 AM
Hello, im new to the whole tanking scene, been tanking at my warrior now for 3 weeks, getting my gear up and such.

Atm im at 31847 health, 23766 armor, 17.10% dodge, 19.64% parry and 21.04% block - unbuffed.

and now im curious, got all these randomfags at my server who is like "YOU DONT GOT 50k HP?! :eek: then you cant tank!" but, havent run into any threat problems yet nor anything like that, so now i wonder, what is my gear viable for? not what i as a player are viable to, but what is my gear good for so far? :)

No point gemming for hit if you aren't having threat problems, gem all stamina unless the socket bonus is 9 stamina or higher. Change your shoulder enchant to the pvp one, cloak enchant to 225 armor, and glove enchant to 18 stamina. Your best options in terms of gear is to do the random dungeon daily and pug Onyxia. Focus on EH when you gear, use this page Maintankadin • View topic - "New" EH - incorporating different damage types into EH (http://maintankadin.failsafedesign.com/forum/index.php?f=6&t=26831&rb_v=viewtopic).

I would say you are viable for everything but ToC 25, ICC 10 and ICC 25. You should be fine in ToC 10 as long as you use your cooldowns smartly particularly on Gormok's Impales and make sure you don't stand in the poison/fire.
