Just got the paragraph below from WoWInsider.... will this be the official passing of the torch from Bergs to the new folks with regards to this gear list rating?
In a surprise move that's incredibly welcome (well, in my eyes) Blizzard has gone back and changed Paladin and Warrior tanking tier 4 to 6 gear as well as non set plate drops, shield and badge gear to take advantage of the new mechanics. As I primarily am a tank (and expect to remain so) I went online to check out how my tanking gear will change when patch 3.0 drops. A gallery of some select pieces and how they're changing when patch 3.0 goes live has been provided for all your browsing needs. I have to say that for the most part the changes are very welcome, they maintain old block value for threat while adding the strength we'll need for increased AP to scale our new threat abilities like Shockwave.
The 1 reason I wanted to register is so I could confirm that "Berg's Tank Gear Rankings" have indeed stopped working. I use this page VERY frequently. pretty much every day, and would love for it to be up and working again. On the first page, Instead of hovering over a name and you get the item to show, it has the brackets showing [item] and [/item].
Also, I see he's taking a break from the game. I looked around for an email or something to contact him, but couldn't find one. I was kinda hoping to talk to him and see if there was a way i could coax him to coming back for WOTLK and do a follow up. If necessary, possibly with some monetary reinforcement.
