View Full Version : Warrior Wanna be warrior (tank)

12-27-2009, 01:19 PM
Hi Folks

I hope this is the place to get serious help, cause I need it badly, I am totally confused as to which way to turn or what to do about getting the proper gear and training to be a decent tank for heroics. I am fairly new to MMOs and the answers I have gotten so far are smug to say the least, some down right hateful. That being said.

Could you folks please take a look at my gear and specs and give some guidance to a wary soul. All constructive crit will be received gracefully.

All of you that just want to rant please take it else where.


Thanks in advance

Your prot spec is a little weird. Look at some other specs.

Talent Calculator - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#LAM00fZhbZMItrx0zidIzsGo) - Threat
Talent Calculator - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#LVZGV00xZVItMx0didczsGo) - Survivability
Talent Calculator - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#LAM00fZhZVItrx0zidfzsGo) - Block

You have no prot glyphs. There are numerous glyphs that may work for you, although glyph of blocking is almost a necessity. I have been a healer for numerous years and tanking took a little practice to pick up. Do some heroics and things will likely get easier for you.

But can I attempt tanking with being DEf capped as they say.

I actually prefer the Talent Calculator - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?talent#LAM00fZhZMItrx0didIzsGo) spec.

Also, you may find the guide in my signature a very helpful resource.
