    you don't lose shield block value though, as you gain more mastery past 72.4% you merely push more an dmore of your shield block into critical block %

    Also I hope you aren't talking about Chimaeron, a 5 second swing timer makes this fight appear scary from the damage, but not be scary because of the swing timer.

    Also: again, it's not about the tank, it's about the healers.
    Fair enough - I'm looking for parallels I understand, and ArP and multiple gear sets were two I understood.

    I don't think gearsets are going to be as important as trinket swapping.

    This fight has a mechanic that I can't avoid? okay toss on my stam trinkets with avoidance cooldowns. This fight requires me to just not be hit? Okay put on my mastery/avoidance trinkets.

    I imagine things such as electric bursts on Nefarion and deep breathes on Halfus are more his examples since Chimaeron damage isn't really supposed to be heal-able, just get the tank to 10k hp and your good. But in terms of basically all these mechanics they either 1. don't do enough damage to make you die without healer reaction or 2. don't happen often enough that you can't just cool-down these mechanics. No need for 210k hp for an electric burst when you can just pop last stand instead.

    I think it's fair to extend this to consumables as well, given some options there:

    steelskin flask when you need the pure health pool (big unavoidable bursts)

    armor elixir + mastery elixir (mostly melee/avoidable-physical attacks inc)

    ...there is also the resistance elixir, which *could* be useful in extreme magic-damage situations

    Also several good options for buff food now to help round out stats (mastery or parry for avoidance, hit for interrupt fights/off-tanking maybe, etc.).

    I'd say you could cover a lot of the situational-set ground by swapping trinkets + consumables in general.

    ...course the situations could get more extreme at the next tier *shrug*.

    I agree with that completely Berune.
