I need advice on gems for my Guardian Tank
I was at Noxxic, looking for the best gems to help my tank. He is just starting heroics and I think they are harder than they used to be. Could be many other factor (DPS ability and healing) but my greatest problem seems to be holding threat. I have few problems mitigating damage, but keeping the mobs on me seems to be, even though I hit growl Thrash and Swipe whenever they lite up. I also make sure to spam the tab key to get a shot at everything in melee range. I just respec'ed to vortex, even though they recommend slam, because the slam only hits one target. the one target usually isn't the problem, it's holding the adds.
Any suggestions for my problem just stated are welcome.
I always use the charge, as it separates me from my group faster and allows me to generate threat before another player hits it.
Now for my basic question. The gems recommended have 60% pvp points and the rest agility. I don't pvp at all. I really need more threat (more damage would be nice too). Is this a proper gem priority for my situation?
