View Full Version : Paladin Paladin tank Tier peices

07-23-2011, 12:48 PM
I just wanted to ask my fellow pally tanks which tier 12 pieces they intend to get. Im getting rather close to winning a piece (im next in line when a pally token drops) and still havent figured out what will be optimal.
I planned at first to leave out the helm and get the tier shoulders, since the helm from baleroc had a nice itemization (mastery/parry if im not mistaken), and tier piece had double-avoid.
But ive already got CTC (fully raid buffed and with a mastery elixir, but still), and im starting to thing that maybe BIS would be to take rags shoulders and the tier helm, since i would be starting to lay off on mastery for dodge/parry while my ilvl gets higher (while keeping on ctc, of course).
What are your thoughts?

Don't go for 4 piece in the first place, get offchest, -shoulders AND helmet instead. This way you can move around at other slots and get higher avoidance values, more stamina or more offensive stats as it pleases you.

But dont you think 12% parry on a 1 min cd is something we should aim to have at some point?

That's up to you. I think it's hard to time if i'm really in need of additional 12% parry 10 seconds in the future. Or do you only want to see it as a regular damage reduction and then you'll have to put it up against using items with more mastery or better itemisation in general.

If I can get block capped with the 4P_T12 then I would go for it (non-tier helmet), otherwise offset chest, shoulders and helmet it is. Plus if you don't go for the tier chest you won't be running around in a dress!
