The enchant question is pretty easy for me to be honest:
What are you gemming in your gear? I am pretty sure its avoidance and not strength, I see no reason to change that for your enchant also. As a tank you are urged to reduce your damage intake as much as possible while keeping your damage dealt as high as possible, Rivers Song gives you the best of both worlds (It is also stronger the more vengeance you have, whereas Dancing Steel is not).
What Clampy said is true. If River Song is poop then all your avoidance gemming should be poop aswell. That assumes that you do not profit from Riposte much which either means you are low on avoidance or not tanking a target long enough.
When you are consistently playing with at LEAST 300k, even taking into account the downtime you have said rivers song is VASTLY superior
In my current gear I have around 55% Dodge + Parry, that puts riposte going up roughly, just over, once every 3.5 seconds on average. So realistically the whole thing about rivers song needing to be up with riposte refreshed is fairly negligible
hi there. i'm going from alliance to horde. what race is "the best" for a tank class. at first i thought tauren, but maybe there is another cool race i do not see right now. orc? panda?
Hi, someone has probably done this by now but could anyone possibly post the latest Best in Slot Gear list for a Protection Warrior for Patch 5.4? Please be an updated list as I'm sure people's preference on what gear is Best in Slot may change from time to time. It will be very appreciated. Thanks!
I've been using the Safeguard macro alot lately. There are alot of dual tank encounters in the current tier, especially the last two bosses come to my mind.
@targettarget can fuck you up though if you are targeted.Code:/cast [@targettarget,help,nodead][@mouseover,help,nodead][@target,help,nodead][@focus,help,nodead] Safeguard
Block (barrier uses the same)
BurstCode:#show Shield Block /cast Demoralizing Shout /cast Stoneform /cast Shield Block
ChargeCode:#show Dragon Roar /cast Berserker Rage /cast [mod:shift] Skull Banner /cast Bloodbath /cast Dragon Roar
TauntCode:#show Charge /cast Heroic Throw /cast Berserker Rage /cast Charge
Do you have any favorite macros?Code:#show Taunt /cast Heroic Throw /cast Berserker Rage /cast Taunt
I got lucky and got the cooldown reduce macro. Where do you put in recklessness? According to my calculation it is on 2min 29sec cooldown now (21%). Currently I have it macroed to SS and Devastate so I use it as soon as possible.
So we got Iron Juggernaut hc down on the 2nd attempt last night..
Had 17 pulls on Dark Shamans, best attempt being 16%. I was tanking Wavebinder or w/e she's called, with a Disc Priest, Elemental Shaman, Demo Lock (affli offspec), and Survival hunter.
The blobs didn't seem to be a problem, one 60+rage barrier and I could leap/thunderclap them without taking much/if any damage.
Just wanted to know what talents people were taking for this fight, if tanking Wavebinder? I was using shockwave, but can't help thinking bladestorm would have been better to just blitz every other wave of adds.
We have a Guardian Druid and Frost DK (who went blood spec for the 3 tank strat) on Haromm. DK started on Wavebinder, but I was barely taking any damage on Haromm, so we switched. Would either of those be better at tanking Wavebinder?
I was thinking a glyphed death and decay for the 50% slow on blobs, coupled with a frost trap, could be beneficial. However our Guardian Druid is running round with 79% crit when raid buffed, so she could cleave them down as they spawn?
Thanks in advance,
I would honestly suggest Dragon Roar for tanking Wavebinder, I'm not really a fan of bladestorm at all
Take mass Spell Reflect for the extra reflect on her frost strike as its around 600k per hit
For tanking Wavebinder warrior does it pretty excellently, better than most other classes
Just run in circles around her when shes spawning blobs and let the ranged cleave them down, they will die in seconds
I do agree with eddy here. I decided to switch to BS this week for the farm kill, and yeah, my DPS went up significantly but I won't call it a good decision. Ranged melt the blobs anyways as long as you stack them correctly, and Bladestorm can end in you taking unnecesary damage to basically pad the damage meter. I would go with DR for the 1st kill for damage on the Shaman. Also, the whole double reflect makes you the perfect one to tank the Wavebinder. It's a good 10 million damage reflect back to her at the end of the combat. No spikes on you, good free damage on her.
Yeah I figured the stacking of adds was key, and the circle running was the easiest method Think we just sucked with positioning the Toxic Storms.
Should get her down tonight, thanks for the replies!
