What's worse is that T6 tanks would be more likely to wear Unwavering to help reach passively uncrushable.
[+3 Stamina Socket Bonus]
Equip: Increases defense rating by +40 (16.9).
Equip: Increases your parry rating by 41 (1.7%).
Equip: Increases the block value of your shield by 42.lol?Unwavering Legguards
[+6 Stamina Socket Bonus]
Equip: Increases defense rating by 22.
Equip: Increases your shield block rating by 30.
Equip: Increases the block value of your shield by 59.
Perhaps this is Blizzard's way of making progression easier for the guilds who got started late in raiding?
I mean...it's not a nerf to the instance if you rediculously overgear everyone....right? lol
The badge legs are horrible for passive uncrushablility providing only 1.47% to passive Uncrushability versus Wyrnn's 3.35%. Onslaught provides 3.98%.
Those legs are SO GOOOOOOOOOOOD.
Other things that are unbelievably good are the expertise neck and bracers. Mostly becasue expertise is amazing for our aggro gen. when tanking.
T6 is still better though overall. Just not by a lot.
What's amusing is that to reach BT, even if you gear up in ZA, you still have to learn all the fights in SSC/TK.
No amount of +stam will save you if your raid can't get in the water. ^_-
Wow, my tankspot sig just updated for my primal grinding fury build. I feel squishy now next to all of your sigs.
This is my signature.
As someone who stands to benefit enormously from the addition of new items, I think they are too powerful. As was mentioned above, I can tell you it ain't gear holding my raid back. Its time and execution. We only have 2 nights for 25 mans and we have enough casual players that cannot click, jump in the water, whatever that learning a boss has a steep curve. This gear would help us but I am willing to bet its going to be the same people already geared up lining up in Shat when the patch goes live and the slackers will still be screwing around doing God knows what with thier time in game.
That being said, my arse is gonna be grinding heroics till the cows come home to have a stockpile of badges ready to spend.
And the avg wait on char copies to the PTR.....4 days...WTF?!?
your hat may be nice, but I have the little white tank top that says Legendary right across my boobs. I win. (or more correctly, H wins)
MMOChampion is reporting it for 75 badges. 15 runs of Heroic Mech? This is getting silly if it is for real.
But if you check out their screenshots, you can see that some of the items they list as badge loot they have dropping from Zul'Aman bosses, so I think something is mixed up.
The new items with weapon skill/expertise are my favorite:
Neck: Brooch of Deftness (48STA, 22hit, 21expertise)
Bracers of the Ancient Phalanx (703Armor, 45STA, 23Def, 22Expertise)
I could see those dropping from Zul'Aman. That would make much more sense than 75 badges.
ZA bosses are 2 per boss, or at least the hard ones are. I saw screenshots.
It is 75 badges, not a drop. I barely had the patience to grind for the autoblocker and that is only 44.
