Another Hydross post *sigh*
First of all, I'm "REALLY" sorry about making this thread, I know there's a lot of them like it out there, but I'm rather pressed for time so I was hoping to get some answers straight from the source rather than apply other people's situations to my own and hope to make a comparison.
First of all, here's my armory. I logged out in my Frost resist gear.
Please don't gawk at the unenchanted gear, it's not part of my usual set (KD included).
Here's my situation. I've just been dropped on a "be ready for hydross tomorrow", however I've been assigned as a frost resistance tank (but I kept my AQ40 NR gear and everything! /cry).
I've heard that I need to stay above 490 defense, I need 290 resistance, and over 11000 health. (Please confirm? It would be nice if I were overshooting it.)
As you can see, my health is there, my defense is teetering on the brink, and I'm still lacking a rather large portion of the frost resistance gear that I will be needing.
I've already determined that by using King's Defender rather than my usual Blazeguard, that I will be able to equip the crafted frost resistance necklace (I forgot the name, many apologies) without going below 490 defense.
I've also determined that If I can craft the Violet Eye ring, It will also boost my resistances by some 14 or so.
In addition to this, two frost resistance patches could be applied to my chestpiece and my pants.
While I FULLY expect that I'll only be able to get 1/4 of these tasks completed on time, I was wondering this, How can I squeeze (approximately) another 40 or so resistance out of my gear (if my math is correct).
Also, and this is imperative. "buffed" with paladin aura, fort, paws, kings, etc etc etc, Is it feasible for me to tank hydross in pure form? And if so, will it simply result in much more spiky damage? Or is this looking like an impossibility at this point.
I do NOT have... daibiri's enigma (however it was spelt) I was young and foolish, and thought something better would come along, these are the best +defense trinkets I have
I do NOT have a +defense cload higher than my devilshark. The need nor opportunity has never come up for it.
I do NOT have hundreds on hundreds of gold to spend at AH. Work has been eating up enough time to stop me from doing dailies. As such, the IF bank is threatening to reposses my bagslots.
These boss attempts will likely go down tomorrow if/when we down lurker, we'll be pulling a 180 and heading back to him.
So sorry for the urgency and the thread folks. I'm just in something of a bind here. :)
