In the end it was school and an IRL friend not being compatible with the guild that led to him leaving rather than disagreements with me. We disagreed on a lot of tank stuff but we still got on very well. Strong tanking teams don't necessarily have to be an equal partnership or even a sensible one if the 2 people can get on as human beings rather than as tanks.
On topic, since I think Harsh Words was changed to consume Bastion stacks, how is the 4pc looking since there was a trick that can't be used anymore to spam WoGs as attacks or whatever it was. From a purely 10-man perspective is the 4pc going to be worth looking at this time around?
You can still use the 4p to cast free EF's on yourself every 30 seconds.
Two ways it can't be used to benefit yourself Noble;
- Free EF cast every 30seconds at 5 Bastion of Glory stacks for increased HPS over SS with no cost to your SotR uptime, in 10man you can probably tell your healers to ignore you if you go this route to get maximum effectiveness of the HoT from EF.
- Stick with Sacred Shield and glyph word of glory damage increase on WoG/EF cast, use WoG on yourself at 3 stacks of Bastion of Glory for the damage increase, 4pc means you'll be getting uptime from this glyph for a 9% damage increase for no cost.
