View Full Version : Tanking Need help choosing between two trinkets!

04-22-2010, 11:11 AM

I'm not raiding, usually, but I enjoy the occasional Onyxia raid, since it's so short and sweet.

Anyway, this is me:

And I just got the Head of Onyxia, and I wondered if anyone could fill me in on wether I should choose Purified Onyxia Blood Talisman (http://www.wowhead.com/item=49487) or keep my old The Black Heart (http://www.wowhead.com/item=47216). At first glance I think the choice is fairly obvious, but do I really wanna lose 1260 HP?

Also, if you have anything else to comment on my gear/enchants/gems, pretty please do!
Things to consider:
I just got my new shield, will enchant it, but dunno if I should chose +def or level 70-+stamina.
Thinking about getting 30 stamina gem in hands instead of defence, as I'm way beyond 540 Def.

Thank you for your time!

You should gem solid stam except where the socket bonus is 9 stam per multi-color gem. Black Heart > Onyxia Blood Talisman. For trinkets you should probably run the Black Heart and glyph of indom, or if you have it Jugg's Vit/Satrina's and the glyph of Indom.

Gear for EH.

Honestly, unless your not d capped or you are obsessed with avoidance, the onyxia trinkets really suck.

I have already said this today Onxyias adds roughly 4% avoidance pre diminishing returns and is an excellent trinket when building a Gimmick Block Set for a warrior (or pally). you are better off keeping the black heart but, if you are in a magic only fight swap to the onxyias because armor=/= magical damage reduction and avoidance would be better on that sort of fight (pure stam would be best but if all you have is black heart, glyph and , onyxias then use heart and onxyias for those magical fights)

Parry doesn't work on spells... neither does dodge to my knowledge. O.o

chance to miss def rating(i didnt say it was great for the fight just better than glyph)
