View Full Version : Tanking Warrior: Best Race/Profession Combination (Horde)

04-08-2010, 03:52 PM

I wanted to offer a quick ‘Thanks’ for the well of information you all have provided here as a resource to us who are newer at tanking. My question is one that is quite straightforward, but the only topic I could locate for it was in 2007.

From what I gather the base health of a warrior at 80 is 8121. With a Tauren’s racial Endurance of 5% increase to base that would be: 8121 * .05 = 406.05 HP??

So to maximize racial/profession combinations for tanking:

Endurance: 46 STA, or 406 HP(excluding .05 – not sure if it rounds up)
Toughness: 60 STA, or 600 HP.
J/C. SDE: 21 * 3 = 63 STA, or 630 HP

Total: 1636 HP.

Are these calculations correct? If so wouldn’t this then be the ‘best’ option for a horde warrior? That is one has the option of padding the additional HP ontop of gear, or gemming for avoidance while maintaining equivalent HP.

Thanks =)

or wait till the racials are reworked for cata and see how good it is then.

right now, tauren warrior with leatherworking and jewelcrafting is the best stam bonus combo atm, but again, racials are going to change for cata.

Leatherworking or blacksmithing?

JC and LWing. BS will give you 2 sockets for 60 stam while http://thottbot.com/s57690 gives 62 stam after subtracting the standard 40 stam enchant. A big 2 stam bonus.
