I'm really frustrated...
As a prot warrior who tanked all the encounters in TBC, including Illidan P2 (which whoever knows was hard as hell to tank those elementals) - I feel like I'm being mocked by that proving grounds thingy as a tank.
with my gear scaled down to 463 I'm not only expected to move accordingly and protect my idiotic panda who doesn't really heal me and I have to take care of myself - I'm also expected to do enormous amount of DPS from wave to wave.
I need some help.
On protection I went on: Warbringer, Impending Victory, Disrupting Shout (for faraway kicks), Shockwave, Mass Spell Reflection and Bloodbath
for glyphs: hold the line (extra revenge dmg), heavy repercussions (extra shield slam dmg), and death from above (reduce cd on heroic leap).
While being 463 I still keep 7.5% soft hit cap and 15% expertise while the rest is dedicated on mastery/parry.
Does anyone have some tips on how I can do it more cleverly ? my primary problem is I wave 16 (buffed wing-guardians) which hit me like a truck - and I usually get to that point without any CDs left.
Potions are not allowed, my legendary cloak proc isn't working, my legendary meta gem not even working (should I even use the cloak?)
would love to hear some advices/hints from people who succeeded in that area
