Avoidance vs. Threat
Here is my armory The World of Warcraft Armory
I am starting to run into mages and other AoE dps that are pushing my threat on multiple pulls. And, I'm wondering if I should start gearing for threat and give up some of my avoidance for it.
don't pay attention to the expertise ring. I got it in Gundrak tonight and was playing around with it. I have Essence of Gossamer that I usually wear, but I was below def cap so I slapped it on to see what the expertise ring did.
in three five mans tonight I did around 1200dps. and held aggro alright, but it was not the usual "cake-walk" it usually is.
Just looking for some advice as I know diminishing returns start to come into play, and maybe I would get more bang for my buck with more threat stats.
EDIT: sorry if this is a frequently asked thing, but I'm just wanting knowledgeable advice so I can make my guilds job easier.
Your Strength & block are very low. I’d start there if I were you.
Your strength looks fine to me. I'm assuming you have around 1k block, which is also fine.
I would try to get another weapon (you probably didn't need me to tell you this :p).
Keep the Hemorrhaging Circle, it's putting you well over the expertise soft cap (a good thing) and giving you some nice dps stats, plus 49 agility = 1+% dodge for some bonus avoidance.
If you wanted you could re-enchant your shoulders with an ap/crit one. Otherwise your gear/gems look fine.
In my experience, the single biggest area of improvement tanks need to up their dps is to really internalize the new priority system/rotation.
Slightly outdated but gives you the basics:
Thanks guys. On multi-mob pulls, I've started using no CC and just let them beat on me so I get plenty of rage, and I've worked in a few cleaves into my priorities list. That seems to keep them on my long enough to tab through and give each of them a good smack.
Thanks for the replies guys. Once again I bow to awesomeness that is Tankspot!
