just a quick question
making a worgen warrior tank when cata starts and i need to have tanking heirlooms for it
can someone please tell me which heirloom items i need best....
Well, you'll obviously want the 2 Valor pieces (shoulder and chest) ... I guess the 2 trinkets with haste + heal on kill. I heard people say the dagger was better for tanking until like 40-50, then switch to the mace cause of the stats. And I guess the bow?
there aren't really tanking heirlooms, but maybe (i don't know this) you can reforge ur plate heirlooms to give you some tanking stats.
also as a weapon, i'd just pick a decent hander, enchant it with some tanking enchant and thats it. maybe there'll be tanking heirlooms in cata, who knows?
And also, didn't blizzard touch that subject as there are no real tanking heirlooms currently? Didn't they mentioned that was being considered?
Unless your tanking a raid it likely won't matter but I would love for them to make some real tanking heirlooms.
So to the op, get the plate stuff, the trinkets, some one handed wep and the bow if you're superSEWIOUS about it. It's more than you need really ^^

The Strengthened Stockade Pauldrons are a bit more Tank-y than the valor ones, but tbh it really doesn't matter. Tanking while leveling up is basically you just grabbing anything with stamina on it until 60some. Get double hand of justices and Venerable Mass of McGowan, can't hurt. Aside from that, the most important thing is that you know how to tank, if you do, great. If you don't, learn before cata.
