View Full Version : Tanking Heroic Sindragosa 25 gearing

This is what I have so far. The Frost Resist unbuffed is 380 and HP after Frost Presence is around 48.5ish. Other than actual upgrades, I don't think that I can get much better than this. Any ideas of where to tweak things, if any?

For heroic sind 25, it's less about frost resist and more about straight mitigation, her actual attacks are whats going to kill you on heroic mode.

As a DK, I personally just used the badge chest over the FrR one because her melees average 23-33k and can parry haste. The extra armor was welcome. Replace the 102 LWing stam enchant on wrists to the 70 FrR one - Recipe drops from some mobs in Icecrown. FrR enchant to both helm and cloak. If you happen to have the ToGC 25 Jarax cloak, that'd be almost perfect.

Frost Breaths start at around 60-70k unmitigated in heroic. You'd want to try and balance both FrR and other stats.

We found out quickly on heroic Sindra she hits like a truck.

Our tanks wear full mitigation gear. upwards 35k hits plus cleaves + breaths . Lots of insta gib if your not careful.

I would suggest using the onyxia25 ring if you have it, the crafted frost resist ring, the frost resist + stam helm enchatn, and the frost resist cape enchant. As I've stated in a few other threads already, you do NOT want to push frost resist to the max on this fight. She melees WAY harder than most other icc heroic bosses, and i'd say that's what kills tanks most of the time. The breaths are predictable and come with a warning (cast time), but you never know when you aren't going to avoid 2 physical hits in a row.

Oh..the OP is a DK. Sorry, armory wasn't working when I was here earlier. Yea, you definitely don't need more than the resist enchants and maybe a ring. You have AMS. And the trinket! :( wtb
