Tier slots BiS

Postby Maballsies » Mon Sep 06, 2010 7:01 pm

Prot is my OS so I can't get i277 tier tokens (or at least I can't for a while), but I can get just about any hm loot from icc/rs and i264 tier. Just wondering what the BiS would be under those restrictions. Currently what I'm going on is:

Helm: Sanctified Lightsworn Faceguard http://www.wowhead.com/item=51173
Shoulder: Boneguard Commander's Pauldrons http://www.wowhead.com/item=50660
Chest: Cataclysmic Chestguard http://www.wowhead.com/item=50968
Hands: Sanctified Lightsworn Gauntlets http://www.wowhead.com/item=51172
Legs: Pillars of Might http://www.wowhead.com/item=49904

I know tank gear is more reliant on what gear you currently have than other specs, but I would like to know what to aim for here since they are 'main' slots and the rest I can work around. Feel free to critique anything else you see wrong. All I have to say is don't talk about my leg gemming. I needed the def rating to get stay capped when I got pillars.

That's exactly what I am wearing, so it looks like we reached the same conclusion.

Personally I wear the Broken Ram Skull Helm and the tier shoulders. It all depends on rather you'd like the hit or not. Yours are solid choices as well.
If it is weak, kill it before it gets stronger. If it is strong, weaken it.

Looks fine for a 264 setup.

Thank you for the confirmation. I was just wondering if the H rotface chest or the h marrow legs are better. Or if there is a stronger choice for 2 tier slots.

Also, I'm way fine on threat unless I'm tank swapping with my guild's MT on HM ldw, then I need every MD and tricks there is to pull threat; so do I even need the 2pc? Or should I just stack stam since I can be full i277 and just EH stack?

Odds are you don't even "need" to stack EH -- might as well up your tps (thus dps) and make fights go marginally faster.

Going full 277 would enhance your GS, but in practice -- for what I surmise is your position -- it'll make little difference either way. Might as well take the pieces if they'll rot, but not worth taking them over someone who rully wants them.

ATM either myself or a feral druid is the flex tank for our 25mans, so I am next in line for tank loot after our MT and OT since the bear is a very good bear and doesn't take items meant for plate tanks. Also, I am the tank for any 10man raids my guild does since we are short on tanks atm and most of our guild only cares about 25mans.

So, like I said, I can really get any piece of loot I want (especially since we have been lucky and both of our tanks are in at least 50-60% BiS), but I don't want to spend extra ep or gold on an item I will replace.

Sorry if I sound whiny or anything, just wondering if there is a better option than what I have. Only reason I'm thinking about this is I will start downgrading frosts to get gems or get saronites just to get some money if I don't need to get another prot tier piece.

My guild has never seen a broken ram skull head drop yet, normal or heroic - except one time in an alt run. One very lucky DK alt

You need the 2 set bonus and all bonus armor pieces you can get your hands on if you want to do any progression. It makes things smoother in general.

Wether you take the hit helm as offset pieces or take a bit more stam on the off set shoulders, is your own choice.

For 277 things change a bit, chest and gloves are the best 2 pieces hands down coz of bonus armor, you're using the legs anyway, wich means you can pick the shoulders and helm you like. Most go with gunship and tier, myself I use gunship and the hit helm.
