DK 3.2 - Defense Concern - ToCr 10/25
This post is about the 540 Defense and would it benefit in damage mitigation if I were to gem higher? Or should I be more concerned with my stamina and other stats. My goal overall is to prevent myself being too "squishy", as criticized by a member of the raid. Some haven't said that yet, but if I can just figure out what would be a good mitigation of receiving less damage, then let me know. I tanked ToCr successfully up to Faction Champions, but I'd like to make myself easier to heal..
So, I've been snooping around armories of various DKs on the realm, and seen a variety different stats. One DK is packing 569 Defense Rating, while one of the higher end guild DK has 549. My DK has 545 D.
Please check my Wowarmory.com if you can. Maybe there's another point that I missing, like low armor? missing talent? Or even the spec? I really enjoy Blood specialization! Maybe there's a great model Blood Tank to look at, then that would be helpful!
Thank you so much!
(I've only started tanking for almost 2 months, and learning what I can to be better at it!)
