Uncrittable.


Seriously, that's all you need.

You can totally do it while crittable, it'll just be a little harder on some bosses like Patchwerk and Maexxna.

So since i havent seen it anywhere i am going to assume uncritable is reached at 540Defense 490 + (5*10)= 540

My question is since we no longer have anticipation and i know +defense rating scales down as you level how much +defense rating is required at level 80 to reach uncritable?

With our new look, would tanking in PvP gear be feasible? If it really just takes being uncrittable, why not slide some Resilience in? Might be easier to cobble together a set that way and get better gear once one is raiding; I've seen it work for plenty of warriors in BC.

with all the crafted and reputation gear available, i don't see why you;d do that.

Like, you could spend time grinding honor

Oooor

You could grind Wyrmrest Rep and be better off.

You need like 690 Defense Rating to get at 540 Defense.

At 80 I reached that without a whole lot of effort but did give it some thought and effort all the same. It didn't just magically happen. Between some the BS crafted Saronite/Daunting gear and having all quest blues from all the other 80 instances which didn't take much but some fun I was over 540 Defense. As well Wyrmrest Accord Honored which you can reach easily via quest helps quite a bit also. So is Argent Crusade Reps which don't take all that long to get quite a bit via fun quests and wearing the Tabard in 80 instances. Both of those Factions have some very good Plate reward gear at that level.

The extra difference was that I enchanted all my gear pieces like a good tank does and I had over 540+ Defense. Was only at 21K when I reached that. Good Defense Trinkets helps as well for all the needed Defense. All my gear was Blue with the only real Epic being the BS crafted Titansteel Shield Wall.

Personally i got to 540 with just craftables and some gear from heroics / lvl 80 normals... it's less hard than it seemb. Just you can't get at 80 and magically be able to tank Naxx.

Just as Kara was doable while crushable, Naxx10 will be doable while crittable. You don't even need 80 instance gear, just a full complement of blacksmithing stuff will get you pretty close.

Psiven and Worldie are correct.

Just grab a somewhat decent set of high level crafted and instanced blues and go to town. You may get the rare unlikely crit death on certain bosses but beyond that it won't be an issue.

Beyond that it really isn't hard to get to the crit cap, but it isn't mind numbingly easy anymore either. Just proper choice of gems and enchants to cover the gap.

Just out of curiosity, what do you need for entry-level Naxx25 tanking?

Well you can have 75k honor before wrath ever ships, so if you are short on def, I could see rounding it out with a piece of high stamina/resilience gear until you can get some better stuff.

getting uncrittable is a bit more work now in WotLK, but whats even harder is staying uncrittable,
the BS-Stuff has high defratings (the chest of wyrmrest rep as well), the epics in Naxx10 have less defrating but more avoidance and stamina/str, if you exchange that you can go below 540def, you need to compensate that with enchants/gems changes.
one or two good defrating trinkets (still hard to get...) help alot now until your gear is exchanged to "normal" tankgear (BS Stuff = Extrem Defrating pushed Items)
