    Am I the only one even slightly annoyed by the myopic focus on effective health and tanks completely ignoring anything that doesn't qualify as EH? Someone just said that because block isn't...

    With Druids getting 40% damage reduction for 6 sec as their 60 rage "spammable" tank ability, I just don't see other tanks competing with that. At beast, average mitigation will be equal, but Druids...

    There's no way in hell this makes it past the beta without some kind of stupid arbitrary restriction that just flat out disallows Warlocks from tanking in raids. Let's go down the list here:

    I'm just reading off the official and wowhead talent calculators, I'm not aware of any other change. Both descriptions have the line "and blocking the next melee attack against you." SHoR increases...

    SB and SHoR have two effects. The one you mentioned, (SHoR is actually +25% block amount not block chance) and an additional effect where after using it, the next attack against you is automatically...

    What really, really bothers me about the new block system is SHoR and Shield Slam only block the "next" attack. This means that if you're tanking one mob, Mastery is the worst stat, (because it can't...

    I just did run their armories through Rawr, and I got somewhat different results. Are you using the latest version? I have 2.3.12.

    First, I'm going to assume you didn't check Stoneskin Totem for...

    Armor is most certainly not "about the same" increase for all four tanks. For starters, a Druid with a 13,000 HP advantage over a Paladin will have substantially less armor than that Paladin.

    You can't find EH by just dividing HP by percentage of damage taken after armor. You also have to factor in damage reduction from talents, which is different for every tank. Paladins and DKs (in...

    4k armor increases EH by 7.125%. So if you have 70,000 HP or more in your armor gear, the armor is more EH. I doubt you have that much, so the "5k HP" is more EH. However, it doesn't win out by much,...

    One thing I think is seriously being overlooked is the huge value of Icy Touch doing damage * 7 as threat. This is insane. It means that threat no longer matters in the slightest, you can gear/spec...

    STA vs. armor can easily come into play on lots of gear pieces, depending on where you are on progression and your loot system. Say you don't have access to heroic modes because you can't beat Lich...

    Shaman can get very high HPS numbers because Ancestral Awakening remultiplies the portal buff. Paladin Glyph of Holy Light also does this but it has an 8-yard range so you won't get the stupid...

    WotN does work if you take a hit below 35% health. It has always worked that way.

    20% off any hit that takes you below 35%? Or a 25% EHP increase compared to an 8.75% one? You realize that this would leave Warriors with literally 66% of your EHP or less, right? With worse...

    Uhm, no. The new WotN is a +17.6% EHP boost to DKs. No permutations of size or number of hits will cause it to be any more or less. Ardent Defender is a +8.75% EHP boost for Paladins, WotN is MUCH...

    The breastplates having no defense is already going to force you to skip out on one or two bonus armor pieces to remain def capped.

    I don't get why people are so mad about "wasting" emblems. Remember, the old bonus armor gear is a wash against the new bonus armor gear until you get four pieces of the new gear to enable the 4-pc...
