3D Whelp or Drake Tanking - Gear Level?
I'm typically fury, and my guild's been working on 3D for the past week or so. However, we are losing our Pally tank due to RL issues, and so either myself or a holy pally who's been working a bit on his tank set, are going to switch in for him.
However, the question has come up as to how much gear we need to be able to pull this off. Assume we have the skill to pull off the strat and it just comes down to gear. Which is more gear-intensive, drakes or whelps? (note that I know that whelps are block-set, drakes are EH).
Also, how much gear would you say is necessary to survive this as a tank (for each)? Is it enough to go in with heroic/10man Naxx gear, or should we take the first night and spend it clearing Naxx and giving the plate drops to this new tank?
