I... really can't say anything about how it felt. Raided 2h30, killed 8 bosses, nothing was really doing any damage, so it was... strange. Can't really evaluate anything.
Garrosh seems tough enough since he's holding his ground, if not it will be needed to wait until heroics to really know what's with the avoidance build. On top of that, worldoflogs is not up to speed yet.
I dropped unending rage a long time ago. The increased rage generation is actually a point in favor of dropping the glyph imo. The only upside to unending rage was that you could simultaneously stack a shield block and full shield barrier and the increased generation allows you to maintain both even more efficiently without having the extra rage bank. I personally like incite. Allows me to throw several extra HS into the BB buff.
So what do you guys recommend for a tank that just returned to this game with around 499 ilvl? Avoidance or crit?
I haven't touched any ToT normal (quit a week or so after it came out). I'll be doing LFR to catch up with my ilvl and willing to try out flexible SoO until I start seriously raiding again next xpac.
I was going to ask this question myself, sort of. I'm in a guild that doesn't do Normals or Heroics, and have contented myself with running LFR, but I still want to be the best that I can be, even when running "sub-standard" content. I've looked at the gearing suggestions from AMR about which way to go, but haven't been able to convince myself which route to take.
After reading this thread, from the looks of it, the prevailing opinion appears to be Avoidance? Would that extend to LFR as well?
Thanks for any input. And thanks for everyone who has contributed to this thread. (had to remove links, wouldn't let me post with them in)
