Thread: Which warrior tanking weapon?

  1. #1

    Which warrior tanking weapon?

    Just got back into the game a week ago-- gear dated to naxx 25. On my way to gearing up for, my final goals, ICC & TotGC, I picked up a few different weapons.

    Peacekeeper Blade
    Rimefang's Claw
    Falric's Wrist-Chopper

    Currently I'm using Peacekeeper's Blade with +24sta and Blood Draining. If I decide to keep it, i'll toss a +30sta into it.

    Which weapon should I use and for which situation?

    If you have any suggestions on the weapon or enchant selection, let me know.

    Thank you ^_^

    This is an easy one!

    Mitigation/Avoidance - Rimefang's
    Threat - Peacekeeper
    Block set (Anub) - Falric's

    Veneretio just posted a great write up on tanking weapons over at tankingtips.com. It might be something worth checking out The World of Weapons - Warriors - TankingTips.com

    I´m not sure if Peacekeeper is really better in terms of threat than the other two. Sure, Peacekeeper is the only of those featuring expertise (or any threatstats at all) but I think 15 weapon-dps should be worth alot in terms of threat.

    I would suggest taking Rimefang´s, since it is the best package combined with higher dps.

    Thanks for the quick and informative replies!

    Perhaps then I'll toss a blood draining on 'The Claw' and use it as my primary weapon. Maybe, later down the road, I'll toss a hit gem with precision enchant onto Peacekeeper and use it for heroics.

    The reason I stated peacekeeper over Rime's is because even with it he is below the dodge cap. That combined with being overall a faster weapon.
