Prot Warrior - Need help holding Mob Threat
Ok, my first official posting in TankSpot (not counting the contest threads... :D ). Thank you, TankSpot, for having such an awesome website to help us tanks out! :) I really appreciate it!
Now to the question...
I am a Protection Warrior with 15/5/51 in my talents.
Defense Rating: 541
Hit Rating: 276 (for a 8.42% melee chance to hit)
Expertise Rating: 17
Majors; Blocking, Heroic Strike, Revenge (thinking about changing either HS or Revenge back to Sunder Armor)
Minors; Battle, Thunder Clap, Charge
Character Profile on the armory:
The World of Warcraft Armory
*I am aware that I do need to update my trinkets* I wanted to focus on getting the armor upgrades first since before 3.3 went live I had lvl 200 shoulders and boots.
*Still waiting on a better shield to drop somewhere*
Be advised though, my new sword is not showing up on the Armory for some odd reason... Link to it is here...
Quel'Delar, Cunning of the Shadows:
Quel'Delar, Cunning of the Shadows - Item - World of Warcraft
Now even with some of the upgrades that I have recieved (upgraded my shoulders and weapon last night, haven't raided with them just yet), I still seem to be having problems getting spread out mobs to focus on me and not the squishies in my party (thank God that my guild is a forgiving one... lol). This is especially a problem in Heroic Halls of Reflection. When it comes down to bosses, or even 1 to 3 elites at a time, there's no problem (especially if they're melee), they won't give my party a second glance. It's when the number goes up to about 5 or more and its a decent mix of casters and melee (again, Heroic Halls of Reflection...).
I typically stay in Defensive Stance when tanking. My usual Rotation is Shield Slam, Devastate, Revenge, Concussion Blow, Heroic Strike, Shockwave with me going back to SS whenever Sword and Board produces. Toss in a mix of Sheild Bash, Spell Reflection, Shield Wall, etc etc... as the situation calls for.
Almost forgot... I use the character auditor on be.imba.hu to see what I need in terms of proper enchants for my armor and to see where I'm lacking in stats and where I stand gear-wise.
I think that is about it. Any comments/constructive criticism would be most welcomed, especially if it helps me be a better tank for my guild. :)
Thank you in advance,
