Tanking: Where to go next for me gear wise, and thoughts on my current spec?
Ok first off my armory link
Ok so a little background first. This is technically my alt although it is my favorite character of mine but my guild doesnt have any room for tanks currently so im a bit limited in what gear i can get. I have access to ICC10, ICC25 (first 4 + fester and rot only) ICC10 Heroic (We are only about 8 in so far) and anything below that (probably not toc25 heroic)
i had a general idea of what i want to upgrade but i just wanted some thoughts on my pieces since i dont have many chances for gear since its technically an alt, so i want to make them count.
Helm, Neck, Wrist, Weapon, Libram and 2nd trinket are the next few things im looking to upgrade.
Helm i was thinking either t10 helm and then hope for a trinket (this would also give me a 2 piece bonus and i wasnt sure how good that is) Other possibilty is broken ram skull from deathwhisper 25 (no 2 piece bonus this way) This would drop me to 147hit but from what i read on another thread i shouldnt worry about that? I read elswhere that our threat stats are expertise to soft cap, then hit, then strength?
Neck i was thinking heroic version of what i have or if i get lucky on a 25man run the bile-encrusted medallion would be best
Wrist - heroic version of mine
Weapon - Heroic version of mine
Libram - badge one, but it doesnt seem like a big upgrade so im in no rush
2nd trinket - i want 2 on hand. i want the toc25 one and the one from professor putricide 10man (maybe even heroic version)
Of course a token for my shoulders would be nice and replacing my 1st ring with the one from dreamwalker 25 would also be nice but those are hard for me to get.
And my talent build is a little different then normal so i was wondering what u think? i wanted to pick as many talents for max tps without sacrificing any important tank talents. Our dps far out gears me since this is an alt so i need all the help i can get lol.
I did a little comparision recently (my math might be wrong so feel free to correct it) on trying to decide if i want Seals of the pure from the holy tree or dig into the ret tree for cursade. i ran toc25 with my current spec and had the following numbers from recount on Jarraxxus
Holy Vengance: 66583
Now if i didnt have Seals of the pure thats 15% less on SoV, the dot and the judgement for
Holy Vengance: 58156
Now with crusade thats an extra 6% accross the board against undead so it would be
Holy Vengance: 61645.36
So it seems to be about a wash? And is it just me or does reckoning always seem to be debated back and forth?
