View Full Version : Tanking DW Frost Tank - Stam or exp/hit

So just mulling a few things over in my head.

Aside of my bracers and boots which will be replaced soon I'm around 50.5k HP raid-buffed.

I'm considering regemming to up my hit/expertise at a cost of some stam loss.

Looks like with 3 JC stam gems, switching out a couple pure stam gems to match gem bonuses I see difference of :

Losing ~80 stamina, but gaining 30 hit, 30 expertise.

Seem acceptable?

Your hit rating is fine. Your expertise is too low. Upgrading to the frost badge tank chest would be a huge improvement for you. In the mean time, swap the red gem slots in your shoulders and belt to expertise/stam. That should bring you up to a decent level until you can get the chest and regem all stam.

Don't forget to eat Expertise food (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=42994) as well. And yeah grab http://www.wowhead.com/?item=50968 for a huge boost once you have the badges.
