I'm in northrend (first time). I'm running into a lot of quest reward haste rating plate.

For prot tanking (5 mans while leveling), how good or bad is this stat? Would it break the rotation? Should it be avoided even if the other stats on the gear are good?


Edit: Simple question, just so I don't double post. Can I obtain a rep tabard and use it to gain rep in 5 mans before lvl 80?

There are defensive pieces with haste on them? I don't recall this whatsoever.

Yes, you can use rep tabards in instances before you reach level 80, however, you must be doing a level 78-80 instance like Halls of Lightning in order to receive any rep. I think Utgarde Pinnacle is another level 80 instance.

It won't break the rotation, or affect it very much at all really, because it's cooldown-limited. It will speed up your auto-attacks, which will be a slight threat boost. It's not a very good threat stat compared to things like STR, Hit, BV, or expertise, but it won't hurt you any to have it on your gear while leveling.

It won't hurt, but it won't help much. I'd basically treat it as if it weren't there.

Thank you.

Also, the pieces in question aren't defensively geared, they're just better than what I had before (more stamina strength, and armor).

And nuts about the tabard thing, I was hoping I could get some rep for running instances I'm going to run anyway.

Check in to the green Cobalt tanking gear and then as you level the blue Saronite tanking gear.

Also if alliance, do all the quests out of amberpine post I think it is in Grizzly hills until you get the quest chain for the 3 tree stumps of the failed world tree and follow that chain along, get nice legs and a shield.
At 74? 75? Do the Wanted: Ragemane's flipper or whatchamacallit from Light's Breach in ZD for a weapon.

I had that axe till I got RSOC to drop...too bad I can't find a pug that will do more than the first 3 quarters of Naxx, so no upgrade for me yet (WTB military quarter first or a pug that can clear to KT)
