    No plate tanking legs in LFR?

    Besides the set piece. Why no regular plate tanking legs in LFR? I looked through all the LFR loot for tanking spec and nothing...Dude like can I get some legs ya'know?

    Warriors. I mean all plate tanks share the same loot right?

    Not really, good example would be http://www.wowhead.com/item=104311

    They might look like dps legs to you, but Paladins like me would disagree

    Haste is useless for all other tanking classes.

    Well, then no, there's not a single offpiece pair of legs dropping for tanks using the LFR style loot system

    As a warrior though, it is possible to swap your loot to a dps spec whilst killing of Malkorok for the Crit/mastery legs, which aint that bad for you Warriors.

    The crafted legs are nice, if you or someone you know has 28 days.

    I did, the generic drops arent as good for other classes and I was responding directly to "haste being useless"

    Some Blood DK gearing strategies in 5.4 also favor a bit of Haste, if I'm not mistaken.

    On that site they say only dps specs even get a shot at rolling on those so it'd be wise to select a dps spec in the loot option if those legs are what you're after as a tank

    they do, if you're going for a more damage-dealing oriented build as opposed to survivability.

    Haste does offer a mild amount of survivability, faster rune regen, more possible blood shield uptime.

    I remember back in firelands, when the only 1h strength DPS weapon was a trash drop (which I never saw, by the way,) while there were THREE 2h strength DPS weapons from bosses.


    Gear distribution can be a bitch.

    If you're going to complain about a Tank gear distribution issue at least bring up weapons, shared by so many classes and specs yet never enough of them drop.
