Help me figure out this gear set.
This is Grafarion, a tank from <vodka>. I fully understand that sometimes tanks will assemble a specific set of gear to tackle a very specific progression problem. Block sets for the adds in H: Anub two years ago, for example. But this set puzzles me.
--The trinkets are obviously there to increase DPS
--The 2-piece t12 is preserved for damage, apparently
--However, there are mastery pieces that have a direct and better upgrade... why the t11.5 gloves and chest? Why the 359 shield?
You can get similar survivability numbers out of totally average gear. Is tank DPS on H Madness or H Spine that crucial? Or am I missing the point of this set entirely?
