    WOULD love some advice on gear / enchantments

    Think I posted my question in the wrong section before !opps so here it is: also here is my amory link
    The World of Warcraft Armory

    Hi there I have been playing wow for some time as a NELF warrior and love the role of tank but with ICC was wondering if there is anything i may need to change? (esp with the chill of the throne etc..) I have always worked hard to get the best gear I can and enchant and gem it up but after chatting to some tanks was wondering if there was something I may need to change to my current set up.. I notice loads of tanks go stam gem mental eg soild blues all round ....Where I have always gone for stam but also dodge/ parry hit and exp...to get a good balance ...I get 47k hp on 25 icc when full buffed etc...but should I change my current outlook...eg are stam gems all round the way to go.... or best to get more stam less exp etc.. also I have ench and bs which are great for the ring and sockets but do you think that JC would serve me better than ench?(ench does make me nice gold as well!)....So any help and advice would be great

    cheers in advance Dizz

    HALP Forum -------> That way.

    That said, your spec is somewhat whack, check some of the guides around here for a good one, or even mimic mine. Cruelty is useless, imp spell reflect is good for gimick fights but not good enough to keep in your regular spec. Keeping both shield spec and focused rage maxed out is not optimal in most situations, I'd take 2/5 SS and 3/3 FR, or just 5/5 SS. You may want to finish imp disciplines off, imp charge, impale and deep wounds for threat, or drop that one point from imp charge, and put more into defensive or shout talents to max survivability.

    Your gemming is somewhat whack too, you went for every socket bonus which is not optimal. Drop all your hit gems, not needed. Any bonuses that are for less than 9 stamina or no stamina at all should be foregone for a blue stam gem. 9 or more stam warrants either def/stam, dodge/stam or expertise stam. After 26 expertise skill, go for dodge/stam.

    Also, get some trinkets with stamina or armor on them, static. Those two don't do much benefit for you. All of these changes will make your stats much more optimal to tank ICC.

    You can look at mine if you want. I currently have my max HP gear on though, sometimes I'll switch out band of the traitor king for clutch of fortification and/or the second jug's vit for glyph of indominability depending on the fight.

    The talents are SS = Shield Specialization, FR = Focused Rage.
