    Which enchant for boots and cloak?

    Hi folks.

    Looking for the best tanking enchant for both boots and cloak, taking into account I'm one of the MTs on a MH/BT-going guild.

    Currently have minor speed and +9 sta on boots, but am toying with the surefooted (+10 hit rating) or +12 sta enchant.

    Currently have +12 agi on cloak, but am looking at the +70 armor one as well.

    Any suggestions and comments gratefully received.

    Am I a troll? Nope gnome.

    Are you a troll? Probably, since you're posting, but not helping

    If, on the other hand, you're wondering why I'm asking such basic questions, that's because I'm getting conflicting answers from various sites and from other tanks and wondered if there was a clear answer from the good folks here in either of the 2 areas, and some rationale behind the answer.

    If this question isn't sensible enough to be answered, then move on.

    I'd enchant to each item's strength - so i'd enchant dodge on an avoidance cloak (think dodge is better pure mit than ag, tho ag does help other things) and armour (+120 isn't it?) if it's an EH cloak.

    As far as feet, umm +hit rating on an agro set and I'm not sure about pure stam or the hybrid one.

    Just my 2 cents

    @Tmbrland, hbombs: The WoW forums are >>>> that way. No need to be jerks here.

    Hey Gyre,

    Your best bet to boots is definitely going to be sticking with 9 stamina + run speed. Your cloak enchant options should likely be 12 dodge or 120 armor. (they've updated the armor enchant with TBC) Personally, I like to use 120 armor all the time, but Shorty makes a good point that it's a good tactic to enchant to your cloak's strengths so 12 dodge is certainly a fantastic option too.

    Thanks for the question. Don't let the bullys deter you from asking again in the future.

    last time i checked these were not the wow warrior foums so keep the rediculas flame posts there. I believe that on tankspot elietistm is to be left at the door.

    I woudl go with the agil to cloak and just leave the 9 stam run speed on your boods

    There's an opinion with some tanks that 120 armor is negligible, and thus it is better to go with the +agi enchant.

    I haven't made a conclusion whether the agi enchant is better than the +dodge enchant. I might crunch some numbers later.

    For the boot enchant it has been answered already.

    120 armor is not negligible. This is not really something you can have an opinion about; it has a measurable, calculable effect.

    why +9 & run speed versus +12 stam?

    Because when you're chasing that damned mage while your intervene is on cooldown, you're moving slightly faster and you have a chance to get there in time to save the priest once the mage dies.

    All in all, if you have to be moving around the 8% run speed is a bigger advantage then 30hps.
    I'm so tanky I get up at 5:40 in the morning.

    YouTube - Thoryana - Run to the Tank

    Run to the Tank

    I remember long ago when I was 20
    To Wailing Caverns we set off with a team
    The hunter pulled, the priest got all the aggro
    Terrified he turned around to flee

    Run to the Tank
    Run to the Tank
    I can't get back the aggro
    when your're that far away
    Run to the Tank
    Run to the Tank
    But he just kept on kiting
    that mob away from me

    Another time when I was a bit older
    In a pick-up group to farm some FR gear
    In Blackrock Depths the mage didn't wait for sunders
    He blinked away with Incendius on his heel

    Run to the Tank
    Run to the Tank
    I can't get back the aggro
    when your're that far away
    Run to the Tank
    Run to the Tank
    But he just kept on kiting
    that mob away from me

    Last night we raided Upper Blackrock Spire
    The succubus, she perished with a scream
    Panic struck the warlock, now defenceless
    He fell down to the ogres far below

    Run to the Tank
    Run to the Tank
    I can't get back the aggro
    when your're that far away
    Run to the Tank
    Run to the Tank
    But he just kept on kiting
    that mob away from me

    Hi folks.

    Thanks for the answers.

    As to the 2nd poster... I didn't say I didn't know what I was doing... I just wanted to know YOUR opinions... but primarily on enchants, and not on me

    I already had reasonable enchants for my stuff. I wanted to know if I was missing a trick or two. It never hurts to ask your peers.

    Thanks!

    I used to be in the guild Band of Exiles and the guy that wrote the song was actually amazing.

    He's wrote 3 more songs which can be found at

    Learn2Heal is my favourite
