    DH tanks m+

    Hey guys,

    have you already tried DH tanks in m+? I really enjoy it after the buffs, here is why:

    +very good DPS
    +very mobile
    +good utility with sigils
    +meta is now very strong
    +hps can shoot very high

    -sometimes if I am not careful very spiky


    which talents do you use in the last row? I use last Resort. I would like to try soul barrier but since last resort proccs very often I don't think I should switch. Which essences do you use?

    Main question:
    how are DH tanks on higher keys? I only reached +14.

    Greetings

    Always LR for M+, too much random shit can happen like an interrupt being missed, something extra being pulled or etc just a good safety net to have. I run Anima as major and Aegis as minor for M+. If you're doing big pulls I'm not sure there is a better combo.

    I used to run LR as well, but I am finding that SB is way better for the pugged Mythic+ crowd. SB has saved me and my healers many many times where as I can only think of one or two occasions where LR actually helped. I will preface this as someone who is still learning M+ and not getting very high yet but I just feel way smoother and in control with SB. Take that for what it's worth.

    It is basically impossible to die if LR procs, so I fail to see how it didn't save you. You can even use it on purpose as an extra CD for situations like waycrest tree boss and extend the period before a reset is needed.

    Soul Barrier is good at absorbing a predictable big hit you know is coming, and hour of reaping can accomplish the exact same goal without wasting a talent spot on it. Soul Barrier was stronger before hour of reaping existed, but with it, it's value went down tremendously.

    Like I said, I am new to this so it may just be that I like the idea of having control over the barrier. Perhaps due to not pushing super high keys yet o haven’t seen the value added from LR. Again, it’s why o stated it the way I did.

    nothing super pro about it, LR is garbage in m+ bc it has a 8m cd and doesn't reset on death any more.

    Still no actual advice given other then "hurr durr it's bad".

    So please explain what is better. Soul Barrier? DPS loss, and it's niche role already filled by a trait.

    6% passive DR? lol. Literally does almost nothing.

    8 min CD = 2 or 3 get out of jail free cards per run, nothing is even close in that row for M+. No it's not as broken in M+ as it used to be, but it's still by far and away the best in the row for it.

    If you are not choosing level 100 talent based on key level + that week's particular affixes, you're doing it wrong.

    You probably should have found something to link that actually supported your argument. Lol.

    Edit: went through top 60. 68.4% used last resort, 13.2% used reaver, 18.4% used barrier.

    I stopped checking after that because you already proved yourself wrong.
