Petrus's Master Gear List Discussion Thread

Postby Barathorn » Wed Apr 08, 2009 12:15 am

Now that we have an updated guide [thanks Petrus], please discuss it in this thread if you need to.

Petrus' WotLK Master Gear List

This is a list of all the tank gear available in Wrath of the Lich King. If I missed a piece, please PM me and let me know! There's a rough ranking order as well, though I encourage you to think for yourself and take a loot at gear before making any decisions - everyone is in their own situation! Remember that depending on your priorities, some pieces may be better because they have more defense or get you closer to the block cap.

Please note the numbering! Just because an item is above another does not mean it is best - the numbers are what matter. There are a lot of sidegrades available right now. I'm also taking into account overall value (i.e. not just avoidance/mitigation stats but also threat) when listing these. If something has a significantly higher amount or strength on it with only very slightly less avoidance, then I may list it higher. Again, knowing what you need to upgrade your gear is more important than just looking and numbers on a page.

Additional note: I list the boss event that results in loot, not necessarily the thing they "drop" from (i.e. a chest for 4H or Mal'Ganis in CoT Strat is not listed, but rather the boss itself).

Instance Abbreviations:
Trial25/Trial10: Trial of the Crusader
Naxx25/10: Naxxramas
Vault25/10: Vault of Archavon

4/6/09: Updated for Patch 3.1 and Ulduar. First update with the new gear. More will be forthcoming! I will try to have any gear updates ready by Monday of each week (if there are any to be had).
4/18/09: Updated with more Ulduar information.
4/27/09: Updated with yet more Ulduar information.
8/3/09: Final 3.1 version of this list. Next version (3.2) will include listings for Emalon and Archavon (and presumably Koralon as well).
8/4/09: Updated for Patch 3.2 and the Argent Coliseum. First update with new gear. In most cases where there are different names for Horde and Alliance gear, the Horde version is listed first.
8/24/09: Updated with almost all 3.2 gear save for Tribute chest items.
9/9/09: Updated with Tribute 3.2 gear and a series of fixes on existing list items.
10/13/09: Updated with Onyxia gear and a series of fixes on existing items. Some do not appear by mouseover because they are not in WoWHead's database yet.

I'm largely curious about everyone's thoughts on the leg and glove armor rankings. I've had debates about the current rankings, but I'm curious how you all think the leg and glove pieces stack up. Do you think any of the pieces deserve to be higher or lower than they are?

I'd also like to get links/info on newer items here. I might not catch everything that pops up since this content is all new and I know MMOChamp and Wowhead missed a few things here and there.

And I know there's another libram or two coming but I don't know their exact stats so I can't very well rank them.

I'll have a look in depth when I get a moment. I do like the defense values on some of the new kit, no more juggling around for those of us who are struggling at the moment.

Good work Petrus.

Are they upgradding the Wall of Terror in 3.1 or something? I have Hero's Surrender and the Wall of Terror. Hero's has more stam than wall of terror, yet the tool-tip for this one shows it at 94 stam? that doesn't sound right.

Many of the block rating/value items that had low stamina are boosted in 3.1 to their correct value. :)

Also the bad news is that wowhead has transferred their PTR database to their live database. I keep getting the "Item not found" Mouse over.

I am not sure if the links need to be updated or what. I'd be happy to assist the Moderators/OP with such endevor if necessary!

P.S.
I am loving the list. Shall really help me decide what loot to actual go for or what other loot to let the other tanks have.

I'm having trouble seeing how the t8 shoulders are best in slot. Anyone agree?

I'd agree to the t8 shoulders being worse than Shoulderplates of the Deconstructor when compared in a void, obviously the 4pc t8 bonus changes things though.

Also I have no idea why [Valorous Redemption Legguards] would ever be put over [Legplates of Sovereignty].

I believe that was a leftover ranking from the previous list I had, and it was higher because of how poorly itemized Sovereignty is - Valorous is more stam and strength with a "pure" itemization that really doesn't have any wasted stats on it despite it being block and not avoidance. I will make them even in the next draft, which should go up next monday (and hopefully WoWHead's links all work by then too).

And yes, the whole 4pc thing makes them tied for top slot because they're just as good as the other shoulders but fill a different (perhaps worse) role, but if the 4pc is there then they may be close or tied for it.

All the links appear to be broken because the ptr wowhead site is no longer up.

The unfortunate thing is that it doesn't matter - the WoWHead Live database is not yet up to date either.

Take, for example, http://www.wowhead.com/?item=45442 (Sorthalis, Hammer of the Watchers). Should be there but isn't yet.

Libram of the Sacred Shield is the new one, but wowhead still has its placeholder stats (i.e. Crusader Strike buff). The actual effect is:
"Increases your block value by 272 while Holy Shield is active."

It is superior all-around to LoO for any fight where you're keeping Holy Shield active. The math to back it up is here:
Theck wrote:So it looks like LoSS adds 120 DPS and 333 TPS (provided you keep HS up), while LoO adds 103 DPS and 287 TPS as long as you Judge every 9 seconds. This also means that for default 969, the new libram is only a 17 DPS and 46 TPS upgrade. Since this is only modifying ShoR damage, it should be true for any seal or glyph choice.


Also, it looks like the mouseover icons aren't working, but the actual link does. Odd.

It didn't when I posted it, so that's a good sign - I'm hoping they have everything updated by the end of the week. I'll try to be doing weekly updates to the list sometime on weekends/mondays.
