View Full Version : Tanking Protowar - Talonguard or Elementium Moebius ring. Advice needed

Good afternoon, everyone.

I really could use an advice. Here is my armory http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/%D0%B2%D0%B5%D1%87%D0%BD%D0%B0%D1%8F-%D0%BF%D0%B5%D1%81%D0%BD%D1%8F/%D0%9A%D1%80%D0%B0%D0%BA%D0%BE%D0%B7%D1%8E%D0%B1%D 1%80%D0%B8%D1%89%D0%B5/simple.

Breaking my head in attempt to figure out if t's wise to replace http://www.wowhead.com/item=52320 Moebius with http://www.wowhead.com/item=69553 Talonguard.

Expertise could certainly use a boost, but on the other hand - it's an exchange of 27 stamina+21 mastery for 32 str+67 expertise after reforge. Hate losing mastery.. do you think it's worth it in this particular case?

Thanks :)

Keep both, use Moebius for regular tanking and Talonguard if you're in need of extra threat.

IMO probably not a good upgrade. I don't like losing mastery either. Unless you are having threat issues, I guess...

Moebius is far superiour compared to Talonguard. So sharding Talonguard would have been the better option ;)

Elementium Moebius Ring hands down. You don't need to worry about items that give +hit or expertise. tDPS will increase as your Vengeance increases. Avoidance/Mastery stats come first.

On content where Tank death is still a consideration mobieus band, on content where Tank Death isn't remotely likey Talonguard.

The differences are obvious: Mastery + a gem slot vs. slightly more stam, some Str, and Expertise. Remember that the colour of the item doesn't denote the quality of it. Shard that 'purple' and stick with the 'blue'.
