Warrior: Best Race/Profession Combination (Horde)
I wanted to offer a quick ‘Thanks’ for the well of information you all have provided here as a resource to us who are newer at tanking. My question is one that is quite straightforward, but the only topic I could locate for it was in 2007.
From what I gather the base health of a warrior at 80 is 8121. With a Tauren’s racial Endurance of 5% increase to base that would be: 8121 * .05 = 406.05 HP??
So to maximize racial/profession combinations for tanking:
Endurance: 46 STA, or 406 HP(excluding .05 – not sure if it rounds up)
Toughness: 60 STA, or 600 HP.
J/C. SDE: 21 * 3 = 63 STA, or 630 HP
Total: 1636 HP.
Are these calculations correct? If so wouldn’t this then be the ‘best’ option for a horde warrior? That is one has the option of padding the additional HP ontop of gear, or gemming for avoidance while maintaining equivalent HP.
