Gearing For Current Content Or Future Content?
This is really a question of how high end tanks are gearing vs a tank like me. Im pretty realistic in the content I can run, which is 5 man heroics and 10 man raids. I just wanted to understand the thought process of how tanks gear, are tanks gearing for future content, future content being new raids, Vs gearing for content that you are running right now.
I personally am gearing for the content Im running right now, what I mean by this is the first thing I was focused on is survivability, and now I'm honestly happy with that for 5 man heroics and 10 man raiding. If Im happy with my survivability the next stats for me to look for is threat, hit and expertise, expertise being my main focus. So thats how I've been gearing which is basically gearing for the content I run, and the way I think is best for me.
My real question is, what is the thought process on how the top guilded tanks are gearing, and how does the thought of new raids change the way they gear today? The reason I ask is because most of the successful guilds I see stack stamina on there tanks above all other things. Are they doing this because they need to for the content they run, or are they doing something completely different and gearing for future, harder content that will be coming later?
Any response is welcome, and thanks.
