Threat issues and gear confusions.
Hello there. Just dinged 80 a couple nights ago. Been gearing up as hard as I can :P
My chars name is Coppu of kil jaeden US
Anyway, I have a few things I'd like help with :]
My primary question is on gems, enchants, and stat priorities. Generally my priorities are stamina > dodge/parry (doesnt matter too much at this gear level because every upgrade is a vastly superior upgrade) > hit/expertise. Is this correct?
Is my spec alright for tanking? How about my glyphs. I have been doing homework and trying to figure these out and yet I STILL find people saying otherwise. I am very confused on spec.
My threat is absolute TRASH. I have been CLAPPAN, CLEAVAN, WAVAN, and REVANGAN WHENEVER POSSIBLE and still can't hold AoE threat. I specced into BnT but so far have not been using it. In heroics DPS goes balls-to-the-wall the moment they see those mobs move. using that GCD has not been too great thus far and I have been option to clap at first, followed by a shockwave, and then followed by cleave/clap/revenge spam. There seems to be quite a bit of debate on this, so some numbers would be nice on this.
The same is for single target. Call me terrible, call me a scrub, whatever. My priorities are Shield Slam > Revenge > Concussive Blow > Shockwave > Devastate. even with all this I STILL have threat problems single target. If you care enough to check out my guild, I have HUGE problems with my warlock. She isn't even that well geared and I still have trouble with keeping her in check. I also can't keep threat on the frost DK (Platelet). His howling blasts are too tough for me.
What am I doing wrong? I will continue to work on my gear as best I can. Will this be a major part of it? Should I uninstall? QQ?
I have been considering wearing some DPS gear but right now (when I don't even have 40k unbuffed) it doesn't seem too wise.
---If you've made it here, and read the whole thing, thank you so much. Any constructive criticism would be helpful. This is my first experience into serious tanking (I tanked on my bear for a while but it was SUPER faceroll. It was pre-4.0 so I could 1 button aoe tank and single target was just a matter of keeping lacerates up). Please be gentle ><
THANKS! :D SORRY FOR WALL OF TEXT
TLDR: Gear/gems ok? Spec ok? Threat tips?
I will try to get some readings on my threat later on. I really want to work on this and get this down. My execution of fights is fine but threat is a huge problem.
I posted this in both the warrior and tanking forums on the official board. I figured I'd rather ask a more trusted source though! Anyway after the advice I got I replied:
