[dk-tank] t10 4pc Would you do it?

Postby Shoju » Fri Jun 18, 2010 11:26 am

I'm curious for opinions from others who tank with DK's, probably a little more than myself. My armory is in my sig, and I'm curious, what would people do next? I tank ICC occasionally with this guy when it is an alt friendly run. No hard modes, and for now, nothing more than LSp, PW, and maybe BPC and Val.

I know statistically speaking, the belt should be my next purchase. It is the biggest upgrade. I still find myself wanting to get the T10 shoulders and try to get 4pc with him. I will have the emblems this weekend to get either shoulders or belt, and I'm wondering, what would another DK tank do? I can't determine if my desire to get the shoulders next is because I want the 4pc, or if it is because I'm just so woefully tired of staring at the stupid 245 paladin look alikes.

In my head, the list of upgrades should be

belt
chest
shoulders
head

but, I find myself wanting to jump and get the shoulders and head first for the 4p.What would you do? Stick to the list, or get 4pc?

You speaking about ilvl 251 or 264?
The DK tank in my guild said that pre-277, 4pc is only worth it on certain fights where you use a CD rotation, but otherwise non-set pieces are much better overall.

I'm tempted to say it's the same type of deal as with the Paladin tier. 264 tier is fairly interchangeable with offset, 277 is better and 251 is worse.

Nah, unlike 12% dodge, 12% DR is good enough to be classed a cooldown.

And as much as they buffed the tier10 pieces from the original stats, the Cata chest, and Kraken gloves are just better overall.

I actually like the 264 T10 gloves more than Kraken's, so ymmv I spose (whether or not you bought the Pillars makes the difference between 3 pieces and 4 ofc).

Well typically the 4 piece trigger is tied to an existing cooldown to ensure 100% firing of that cooldown due to annoying rune mechanics,
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

DK talented cooldowns require a rune to activate, due to DK mechanics Blood Tap is often times tied to the cooldown in a macro to make sure that the cooldown actually goes off so instead of getting another cooldown you're doubling up an existing cooldown.

I don't use the 4T10 but thats mostly due to laziness and bigger fish to fry. I have off set 277 gloves/chest. I haven't done a whole lot of research on what is "best" though since tanking is my off spec, I just pick up the extras that the other tanks dont need. I'll most likely try to pick up at least some of our extra 264 vanquisher tokens and play around with it at some point in the future.
Bye space sword!
