LK10 Heroic - Trinket Combo
Hey there, I'm about to help out a guildgroup do Bane of the Fallen King on my alt blood knight.
I'm very familiar with the encounter since I have five kills under my belt (including the hundreds of wipes during progression), both as a shadowpriest and a retpaladin, so I'm fairly confident with both the cooldowns and movement.
However I'm new to tanking it, so I was what exactly I could do to maximize my chances of survival, particularly what trinket combos to use.
Here's what I have availible
264 Corroded Skeleton Key
This is the one I usually always run with for icc25 heroic modes. The absorb is decent for cd-rotations on soulreaper if combined with something else. Fairly certain I should use this in one slot.
264 Unidentifiable Organ
I just picked this up last night, so I haven't had a chance to test it properly yet. I can imagine it can be extremely good on fights where you could stack it up, but I don't believe lich king hits particularly fast to make it worthwhile. I will be add-tanking in P1 so theres a good opportunity for it to stack, so maybe its great for not dying to angry shamblers? idk. The armor is sweet, I love armor.
271 Petrified Twilight Scale
This is the other trinket I run with regularly for icc25hc. I'm a total sucker for armor and this one provides it! I don't really know how useful the proc is, I mean if I get taken below 35%, relying on an odd 10% chance to avoid the next swing doesn't seem fantastic. I guess somewhat OK in combination with Will of the necropolis?
277 Corpse Tongue Coin
Oh yes, the trinket that always goes for minimum bid in your avg trade chat GDKP. Everyone seems to stay away from it, and it's always mocked as the redheaded stepchild of endgame tanking trinkets. I'm not really a fan of the dodge, but I could see the proc on it being extremely good for Lich King heroic. With a short 30 second cooldown, you are almost guaranteed for it to proc on every soul reaper. Sweet sweet armor boost also in combination with WotN, making you very sturdy at lower health, but is the lack of good passive stats worth it over the other trinkets?
Any suggestions? I'm a bit torn on what to wear, right now I'm thinking Key+UO maybe, but looking for input on experienced Lich King heroic killers (Light of Dawners and Baners only please! I don't really value the input of you armchair-tanks with 5/12 heroic experience)
