the solution would be to remove d/p entirely and make mastery/haste/crit for all plate tanks attractive in some way. then add just more items, and everything would be fine.
oh and lore confirmed that the GC change is made to make d/p more attractive, at least in the way that if you happen to have some on the gear, you don't feel like it's wasted.
doesn't change the fact that this still makes aoe tanking (5+ mobs) totally broken.
doesn't change the fact that I will continue to avoid d/p it like the plague, either.
I just got my cloak last night (curse you RNG!) and i'm sitting at roughly 16k haste now. At what point does it make sense to start shifting away from haste and into other secondary stats like crit/mastery?
I'm also at 15.01% expertise right now and I was thinking about reforging the mastery on the cloak to expertise so I can swap out the expertise/haste gems (I think I have about 2-3) to pure haste ones. Worth it? Should I reforge out of crit instead?
Got a Top 12 rank on H Horridon last night! Hoping to crack top 5 next week with my new cloak.
Depends on your socket bonuses. If they are red sockets with good socket bonus I will reforge the mastery to crit, otherwise I would reforge it to haste and swap out some exp/haste gems to pure haste.
I am so tired of seeing terrible people, being admired, for being terrible people.
Hey any advice for 10 man heroic tortos?
Been progressing on it a little bit and having some trouble, im solo tanking it but I seem to take crazy amounts of damage as well as having trouble keeping up the crystal shield (when i dont have it I seem to spike like crazy and die) so yeah any advice would be welcome
I try to time my SotR for the bite I end up pooling for like 5 HP just so i have it up for it but with trying to pick up bats and time them together and trying to not let the crystal shield drop it never seems to go well
Did most solo tank it on progress or did you 2 tank it?

2tanking it is laughably easy.
2tank for the kill, 1tank if you want to rank.
We got tired with random deaths on our offspec Brewmaster monk on that boss and decided to do it the "proper" way.
You have to recast it.
Here's weak auras strings I use to track them
I'm using G15 keyboard, it has a nice LCD where I can keep track of my attack power. Sure, it requires me to glance off my screen, but it has became a habit which doesn't hurt me in any way.
