Hi fellow tanks,
I wanted to start a little discussion about the new tanking trinkets introduced in 5.2
As far as I know, the following trinkets are available for tanking:
http://www.wowhead.com/item=94516 (Mastery - MaxHP use)
http://www.wowhead.com/item=94527 (Expertise - Sub 35% HP heal proc)
http://www.wowhead.com/item=94518 (Dodge - Dodge proccs mastery)
http://www.wowhead.com/item=94528 (Stam - Absorb use)
http://www.wowhead.com/item=94507 (Mastery - Dodge use)
Another 2 trinkets could be used for tanking(, but were originally dps trinkets):
http://www.wowhead.com/item=94508 (Expertise - Strength proc)
http://www.wowhead.com/item=94515 (Hit - Strength proc)
As far as I know, a lot of tanks (like myself) used dual stam trinkets in 5.0/5.1 and socketed rating stats, because gems had better stat budget for ratings, where trinkets had more stam than ratings stats per slot.
This wonīt be possible in 5.2, because there is only one stam trinket available and the item level difference makes 5.2 avoidance trinkets probably more attractive then 5.0 stam ones.
Which trinkets will you be using and why do you think, it would serve your style best?
And yes, I know that good tanks switch trinkets by boss, but there is always a "default combo", you will wear until you know better ;)
I obviously aim for the stam trinket for one trinket slot, but the other slot gives me a headache (and I still try to figure out what to spend my valor on, but that would better be discussed in halp!...).
Letīs see your thoughts!
