Hello

I have to start tanking normal Raids (starting BWD) and was wondering what food and drinks to get for buffs. Everyone keeps saying that stam isnt important In cata, but is this also true in raids?

And uf anyone have some advice regarding my gear then please let me know

for some magic heavy dmg fights, you may be better off going with the resist/ mastery elixirs. depending how often you wipe, they can sometimes work out cheaper.

It isn't that stam isn't important, it's that 'you have enough' so that you don't gem/gear for it for normal modes.

As far as food, I think all food gives 90 stam, but as a DK, I don't know if you'd want the dodge/parry/or mastery food. Just get the 90 rating/90 stam food and you're good.

As for flasks/exliers - probably whichever is cheaper. Cutting edge progression raiders are going to 2 run with 2 elixers, but if you're just starting raiding at this point, you're probably well geared so the flasks, if cheaper, might be the better way to go.

There isn't anything wrong with the 300 sta flask, but if your entire raid is min-maxing, going with the 2 best elixers for DKs would be better.

I tend to use Elixir of Deep Earth and Elixir of the Master, they just happen to be cheaper to make - I do have some Steelskin also, but save that for special occasions.

Your guild have the achievements for the fish feast and flask cauldrons. Talk to them about whether that's a more efficient way of buffing the raid. They have pros (guarantee raid wide consumable usage without pressure, cost effective) and cons (effort to prepare, may not be optimal buffs for all classes). In my opinion, the pros outweigh the cons, but it's up to your guild to decide.

I use the mastery elixir and the 900 armor unless we are trying something new and i plan on dying alot then I use the flask of steelskin since it stays thru death

This, especially after my priest is making these for my DK now.

heh based on prices on my server,its only if your wipe rate is more than 10 an hour that steelskin works out cheaper.

Even cheaper is no flask and no food.

BiS is master and prismatic for most encounters, master and deep earth for a few others.

Lava scale minestrone for food. Earthen/tol vir pots in battle. Golemblood prepot. Swiftness and accuracy elixir can be handy too.

ps This is for warriors, no idea what DK's use.
