At 487 iLvl at the moment, but progressing slowly in normal mode HoF. My guild wont be downing normal Sha in a while, so the normal axe is out of the question. I tried to go back like 20 pages to find an answer, but seems that the weapons have only been discussed for DPS and not tanking.
That said, for a DK tank is it better to have Normal Starshatter or LFR Shin Ka? Shinka comes with shedloads of mastery and with gem it's str rating is good also. The DPS shouldn't matter that much right? I have the normal starshatter atm. and thinking about should I upgrade it, or wait for Shin ka to drop, cause it has to drop some day right?
There's also two schools on the subject I know, but vampiric blood usage is still a mystery to me somewhat. I use it glyphed and on CD on most fights to help healers, but I was wondering if I could get more use of it without glyphing? Atleast now, when my guild is having trouble with normal Wind Lord (the tornado alley phase is just not going weel) the unglyphed VB might actually be better? Also conversion feels like the right way to go as a self heal, since I can stack 100 RP and just pop conversion when I have to dodge the whirlwinds. And when I get to boss, again stack 100 RP to pop it when he moves to the other end?
Long time lurker, almost the first time poster so bare with me! Still learning this class!
