30% parry/dodge (maybe a few %'s higher)
For pally, i'd venture to say the same stats apply. Uncrittable is a near-must as there are some very thin margins for error if you're group is undergeared as a crit can make a big difference. I've never thought of being uncrittable as completely vital to a raids success, but with timed HP bombs that border you on death and having to rotate oh-shit abilities, you can't have spike damage.
If you're running with mins, make sure that you get yourself 3 high-quality healers and over 1500DPS DPS'ers. You'll need em.
Started Naxx this week and tonight we only have Kel'Thuzad left, no FR gear was required for Sapphiron. Patchwerk was giving us little trouble since I took tons of damage as MT and healers were running little dry, but otherwise it doesn't seem to be very gear dependant. Fights like Four Horseman are all about the strategy and on Heigan we were even able to 3-man him down from ~70% to 0% as rest of the raid died early on flames. It took 18mins tho....
My stats as prot warrior:
25k hp unbuffed
18.4% dodge / 17.6% parry / 15.9% block
yes.... defense is arguably the best avoidance stat right now because of DRs. But there is a point at which it may not be... but for now, it's very easily a great stat to get above the cap, annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd it gives higher SBR which is no joke now that our SBV is so high =]
I hit 80 Sunday and was tanking Naxx Monday on a toon that hit 70 less than 2 weeks before the xpac. For the 10 man the requirement is the bring the best gear you have and be remotely competant. Its no where near starting Kara at 70.
Yeah, when starting out naxx 10 just make sure you are at 540 def, the damage you take is a joke. I basically started stacking dps stats right from the beginning. A little different on hard mode, though... Patchwerk packs a PUNCH in the 25man version.
Yes, I keep hearing that Patchwerk is the "gear check" boss. Did any of you have issues with this boss in entry gear? And if a bit better gear is required, what do you suggest?
My guild did Heroic Naxx last night and downed Patchwerk. We shuffled the tanks around a bit, but in the end I MT'd for the kill. I have basically run zero heroics, did a couple 10-man Naxx bosses and just picked up a new weapon from the other 25-man Naxx bosses we did that night.
So I essentially had no heroic gear, no badge gear and only a few epic pieces. I haven't even bothered gemming and enchanting most of my gear yet. And Patchwerk went down.
Borak, you realize the OT is the one that takes most of the damage against patchwerk right?
Indeed. I guess my point is directed more at the fact that my guild only just started raiding again, and Patchwerk wasn't much of an issue. So the answer to Grifendor's question is that gear assembled over the course of a few heroics should be fine for proceeding to Patchwerk.
OTed Spider wing, Abomination Wing, and Plague Wing last night. Came in with 23k hp, 20k armor and just barely def capped. MT was significantly better geared but didn't seem to have many problems with the bosses we cleared (aside from technicaly "don't stand in this spot" issues).
