Only need to know drop locations for:

Battleplate of the Apocalypse - chest

Let me know if there's anything more to fix or if anything is missing!

Really? That's somewhat surprising - I'd expect at least both apocalypse pieces to be from Bastion of Twilight :P

Yeah. Well, MMO may have it borked. I never got that far in the beta. Sadly, there seem to be no decent loot lists on Wowpedia yet for the raids.

The trinket Tia's grace dropped for me last night - +285 mastery; chance to gain 34 agility on each attack, stacking to 10 and lasting 15 seconds. I guess it's not designed for tanks, but mastery is good for us and agility is almost as much avoidance as dodge. It might be worth adding to the list.

EDIT: while soloing last night, it seemed to be up with 10 stacks (340 agility) every time I looked.

The third Tol Barad PvP trinket should also be listed as a perfectly valid tank trinket. I'm unclear as to where. Same mastery as the listed two, but with a solid 1700 (or something) agility 20 second on-use, two minutes cooldown. While agility is 60% (Theck could correct me on this) dodge, we're still talking four digit dodge-rating at your fingertips.

I guess mitigation/avoidance would be the classification.

I'll consider adding the agi-related trinkets in my next pass through. I'd avoided them before specifically because of the Agi, but if general consensus is that they're worth it (I personally still lean towards not including them), I'd probably stick them in the list. As I said, though, I don't think I'd personally use any of the agi stuff.

Rage of Ages is from Nefarian and Battleplate of the Apocalypse is from Cho'gall, so we're still missing the drop location of Pauldrons of the Apocalypse.

It appears we are in direct competition with dual wielding frost DK's for the Soul Blade. It's unfortunate because they will want two of them. Probably have to focus on picking up the other weapon until your DK's are done.

Indeed, there's only one other Strength 1H: a sword from Magmaw in BWD. Thus, expect those DW/Strength DPSers to want Soul Blade as well. Kind of a sparse loot table for them at the moment.

We actually sold our first Soul Blade for 100k the first week of raiding. Both of the tanks already had Cookie's, and we decided that the repair gold was a better investment.

I would strongly suggest putting several pieces of DPS gear into this list, as many are excellent for tanking. Don Rodrigo's Necklace (world drop) is IMHO the BiS tank neck before heroic modes, as no neck has more mastery than it. Elementium Deathplate is clearly a better tank BP than Hardened Elementium Hauberk. Beech Green Belt is arguably a better tank belt than the JP vendor belt, and is definitely a better tank belt than any of the other 346 options. I would also say Signet of the Elder Council is the second-best pre-heroic tank ring, leaving it also BiS. Finally, the plate DPS legs off the last boss of Vortex Pinnacle are also perfectly acceptable tank gear, comparable to the JP vendor tank legs.

I'll consider it but I've generally stayed away from putting any outwardly DPS-oriented pieces on the list save for trinkets, and only one of those (Crushing Weight) has any non-tank/pure-dps stat on it (the haste proc). This is for tanking gear, and while some DPS gear may be useful as tanking gear because of mastery, I somehow feel that adding it and advocating its widespread use by tanks would be a bit irresponsible. It's one thing to get hit and expertise to smooth out our threat, but it's another entirely to get stats such as crit or haste that have minimal value to us. While the DPS pieces may have a lot of stamina and mastery, that's not all we need as tanks.

I realize this isn't a Democracy, and it's Petrus thread to do what he/she wants. But you've done a great job keeping the page simple and I like it exactly how it is. I do not wish to see any DPS gear.

Two things:

1. For reference, I am a "he" as my real name (Peter) isn't that far off of my in-game name (Petrus). I took a lot of Latin IRL so I often respond to either name, both in-game and out. My former Latin teacher still uses them interchangeably when I go and visit (though usually in the vocative form "Petre").
2. I should have a new list up by next Tuesday with any fixes/new drop locations in place. I decided I'm not going to include what I call "blatantly" DPS pieces, i.e. ones with crit or haste on them. Just exp/hit/mastery/dodge/parry.
