PvP gear is the perfect OT gear?
While gearing up my tank I have started to wonder...
The Merciless gladiators shield wall is THE best shield to get before Gruul (according to Berghs gear guide). The MG shoulders are up there just below mantle of Abrahmis.
The gear is stacked with sta, crit and resilience. Res is "the new def" in the way that 490def dont need to be the goal for a tank then. Sta is always good, and crit is superb for an OT to dps when needed and generate aggro when needed.
I know that its said that any gears points put in Sta is a waste for a dps warrior since he is supposed to not get hit. But most raids I have been in OT'ing, some mob needs to be held for next CC to be available or to be OT since cc'er got killed.
The arena gear will make it possible to switch between dps and OT without the need to change gear. To be dps/OT in one make up.
With this gear we can also be an 'extra insurance'. Since threat is usually the cap for dps warriors we can try position us just below the MT, so if some unforseen event happens - like him gettin squashed :D - we can pick up the boss and let the dps to work a little bit longer.
If we are in dps gear we die at once - in full tank gear we will have produced too little threat to be second on threat list.
What do you say? Is this an interesting view? Or is it just rubbish and missinformed?
(The only critisism I dont want is that the tank shall never die or the like - because we all know that is only the case in farm status places) :);)
