View Full Version : Tanking Gear question

12-26-2009, 05:46 PM

At the moment I am wearing 4/5 tier 9 as a warrior, and therefore get the set bonus that decreases the cooldown on my shield block ability by 10 secs. Now I have the option to switch the head & shoulders for the ilvl 245 parts from triumph vendor in dalaran, should I do this and give up the nice set bonus, or should I stay with the bonus?

Atm im at:
26.7% dodge
21% parry
16.7% block

Thanks in advance,

If you break the bonus, switching out those items isn't really optimal. The helm you should only replace if you decide to go with the 245 helm of wrath. The BP and the Legs are the ones you can easily lose due to other gear besides that, I'd recommend (for ilevel 245 stuff) hauberk of towering monstrosity and leggings of feverish dedication.

The 4 pc isn't really that nice, but the shoulders and helm really aren't an upgrade. The helm is arguably better, but I hold them on equal footing.
