Spell Power outdated?

Postby Nehor » Fri Oct 10, 2008 12:36 pm

With the consolidation of tanking gear with Warriors and Death Knights are we going to be as worried about Spell Power with the expansion and more focuse don Str.?

Thanks for the help!

There will be no tanking gear with spell damage on it anymore, and it is not worthwhile to use on amulets/rings. Str is much better for threat now yes.

Basically, no. However, a spell damage weapon is still useful, because a spelldamage weapon tends to increase consecration damage much more than any other weapon. It will still be useful when AoE tanking more than three mobs.

The reason this only applies to weapons is because base DPS on a weapon takes up a lot of itemization points but does nothing for consecration.

It would be so nice if they made tanking weapons like feral ones. They'd have raher low dps but lots and lots and lots of strength.
