How much BV is recommended for AoE tankign SH?

Postby Andox » Mon Dec 24, 2007 4:17 am

Hello!

I have around 440 unbuffed atm and around 650 with Autoblocker when I activate it. Is that enough to AoE tank Shattered Halls? Or should I try to get some more BV? It´s really hard to get for me :cry:

Going to assume you mean heroic 'cause on normal you just need what your shield has really :)

Agreed for normal it doesnt really matter to much long as you have a good healer. No idea about heroic tho

I've done AoE style tanking through heroic SH with my normal heroic gear, which is about 250-300 BV. More is good, but it's not essential as long as your healer can keep you up. :D

I aoe tank it with about 472 BV and it's fine. Just make sure your health is decent too, and your healer is more than decent.

400-500 is fine. 600+ is advisable for heroic.

I've always done it in my generic tanking gear... which is around 350-400 block value. I'm sure I have the avoidance and armor to make up for it, though.

How much healing is needed for that? :) I haven't tried heroic SH yet. I have 330 block value and I don't have any fancy blocking trinkets yet. One of my guildies told me that an imba healer is needed for heroic SH...

I tank with anywhere between 450-670 depending on what gear I'm in (high BV if the healer sucks, high threat otherwise so the DPS can go nuts).

Armory is acting up yet again (surprise surprise, that never happens :roll: ).

My prefered healer is not showing, and another one I know is not either, but I remember him saying it was 1800. Another I know has 2000. These are all priests.

I don't think it necessarily needs to be that high though. I guess more healing is like more block value, it's not essential beyond the minimum, but the more you have it helps in places like this.

My guess as to the minimum would be about 1500 healing. Depends on the tank though. :?

Also keep in mind that the last boss in heroic SH likes to eat cloth wearers. The +1800 priest I mentioned has about 6k health buffed. Without BoP on him he would be guarenteed dead in one of the silly whirlwinds. :(

So yeah, +healing is great, but don't neglect their health and armor value. The one that kept dying I recommended trying to develop a stamina set. My priest loses about +200 healing in his stamina set but gains 1.2k health, which helps in fights like that. :D

I would always reccomend a clothie going near heroics develops a stamina set. There are some boss fights that just put out massive splash damage.

I can answer this pretty well I think having healed a paladin tank and AoE tanked heroic with my paladin.

With the tank having ~15000 health, ~67% avoidance without HS (of which most comes from block) and ~400 block value, with the Paladin healer having 1600 healing, 20% crit and 70 mp5 or so, AoE tanking heroic SH is a breeze. On the small pulls FoL works fine. On the large pulls where those hunters and shadow casters are involved, rank 7 HL with the occasional max rank HL does the trick fine. Just watch for hunter sting :) I never had mana issues when I was healing in the above scenario.

A bit under 17k armor and 487 block value with a 1080 holy paladin seemed to be barely enough.

I currently have 300BV and with a 1700 pally healer behind me I can aoe up to 7 mobs. We have blues/kara epics pretty much...no 25 man gear at all. I have 62% avoidance (without HS). Only part that was extremely difficult was where you pull the side groups that are fighting with each other...they MS you and its GG. I recommend a hunter with frost trap to slow them in the next room if you really want to deal with them...otherwise bipass. Hope this helps.
