Yes you have read the title correct. I am asking about using a non tank stat weapon to tank.
FIRST! Let me explain I have been tanking since I started playing this game over 5 years now. I have NEVER used any weapon that did not have tank stats. However due to my luck with weapon drops in wrath I have found myself in a tough bind. My guild is a core raiding guild and I am a OT we just downed the first 2 of 3 new bosses in ICC 25 and starting Professor Putricide Tonight. We had a few hick-ups as most guilds did but we adjusted and we killed bosses. Now I really dont think I will use this weapon to tank progression raids but the idea interests me so I thought I would get some feedback
Weapon in Question
Now according to my math Using the 264 axe vs the weapon I have now witch is the piece of shit one from new heroics I would be out .81% avoidance and thats not really that bad of course we really dont wanna lose any avoidance and my threat is not a issue so there is no real reason to adjust my normal game play and use this weapon.
So I guess my question.....
What do people think of using non tank weapons to fill a spot till a real weapon comes along?
