    [Prot] Cmode Gearing

    While I plan on having crit/mastery on every single piece of gear for tanking cmodes, I also want to get BiS trinkets. The goal here is to maximize damage and critical strike.

    What would be the best trinkets that one could obtain for tanking gold cmodes?

    Thank you!

    I believe it would be Scabbard and Imperator Mar'gok trinket for a high DPS build, though I may be wrong on the latter.

    Scabbard/Anzu plume + Bronzed Elekk Statue
    Anzu and elekk got insane uptime and its easier to link wthem with pots/cd's

    If you're going for straight damage probably scabbard/plume. The mastery from plume is always up and converts to AP on top of the oodles of BA. Edit: I've seen people use Chorus too although it's literally useless for bosses it could probably do some serious damage on those big pulls.

    When I tanked them I used Anzu's Plume and Blast Furnace Door. If you optimize all crit/mastery gear you're already going to do some really great damage on the big pulls with shockwave/BS/Ravager which is why I personally opted for more defensive type of trinkets.

    Always wondered about Shockwave, are you technically nurturing your damage by stunning everything so you don't get any revenge resets and no extra rage or does the overall damage of Shockwave outweigh that?

    Very Interesting idea Ashtwo,

    I guess the case against Shockwave is that it not only might reduce (I'm guessing you are going for "neutering" here) your revenge output, but also you make yourself incredibly spiky by having the mob's swing timer reset.

    What I do enjoy is the "grace period" it gives my healer to rebound from a steady intake of damage, along with the overall damage FROM shockwave being a great factor.

    I can run the numbers for at what point are we losing damage on revenge for shockwave - but really does it matter? Asking a tank to not have an AoE stun on a 20 second CD that helps your team is kind of a no-brainer, even if you are losing a bit of dps.

    Great idea though Ash

    Yeah, not sure why I typed Nurturing! I fully agree it's worth using it, just crossed my mind a few times friom a purely selfish damage increase point of view

    Totally agree with you. Any damage increase is pivotal in my book :P
