wrynn v. timewarden

Postby Galrond » Sun Apr 06, 2008 4:33 pm

Hello,

http://www.wowarmory.com/character-shee ... &n=Galrond

I got the Wrynn Dynasty Greaves last week off of Curator... but I haven't gemmed them up or enchanted them or anything. Currently I'm wearing Timewarden's leggings w/3x12stam and 30stam/10agi, and I'd be putting the same on wrynn.

Should I go ahead and use wrynn, and eat the stam loss for the extra armor and avoidance, or should I stay with timewarden? (I'd go for the 2.4 badge leggings but I'm leaning toward the stoic guardian chest as my next badge expense right now tbh)

Hey everyone, I'm the Main Tank for my guild and we got a new warrior that joined. I'm not concerned about him taking my spot as I've been in the guild much longer and the GM and everyone really likes me but I don't want to MT bosses when a warrior has better gear than me. Currently his gear upgrades over me are minimal at best. However he does have more health(being a warrior). I'm looking for some direct gear upgrades that I could use that would push me over the top and make me ready until SSC/TK. Currently my guild has gruul on farm along with 10 mans and the 4 avatars in ZA down. We are just waiting for more people to actively do 25 mans. I'm not sure how far my current gear could take me as of now.


Question: Any direct upgrades I should aim for before SSC/TK that would push me over gear on this warrior in my guild?

PS. I have the furies deck which I will be turning in tomorrow and I'll have both Commendations and that trinket but since my threat/aoe set is barely at 102.8% with the moroes watch, I couldn't rish putting both stam trinkets on. However if I put on my AVOIDANCE/STAM gear(iron maiden gloves and moroes belt switching out t4 gloves and belt of guardian). I would be at around 104.8% with both stam trinkets equipped which might put me at close to 15.9-16k unbuffed with lower avoidance/threat though(around 328 SD unbuffed).


Any ideas would be greatly appreciated, I'm sorta of in a pickle here...

DMC:Vengeance+ Commendations with Avoidance/stam set for lower threat but more health

or

Commendations+Pocket Watch with threat/aoe set for more threat and decent health(which I currently use).

HELP!

Thanks Smile

My current Prot Set and Spec

Postby Vdarye » Sun Apr 06, 2008 6:40 pm

Hello, I am a holy pally but I have been getting gear on the side for prot set. I would lilke to switch over to tanking for maybe heroics and if all possible full kara runs. Linked below is what I have gathered so far and looking for possible help on upgrades on what I could get with relative ease.

http://www.wowarmory.com/character-shee ... r&n=Vdarye

My next thing I am going to work for is the S1 (or if S2 is out by that time) gavel so I can have more spell dmg than my current healing set.

I know there are lots of things I could do better, but lookig for the quickest to upgrade with so I can be suitable for tanking up to kara for now... possibly more as time goes on.

Badge Loot Advice

Postby Lunchbox » Sun Apr 06, 2008 6:43 pm

Hola amigos,

I'm having some trouble figuring out what to get next from either the current badge vendor or to save up for the new badge vendor, which is about a week away on my server.

So I have 51 badges...and with Kara each week and daily heroics...I should have 100 within a weeks period or so.

With all this in mind and my armory link: http://www.wowarmory.com/character-shee ... n=Lunchbox

I could use these right now and they'd be a pretty good upgrade:

Or I could wait a little bit and get the: http://www.wowhead.com/?item=33522

or wait even longer and get:
http://www.wowhead.com/?item=34939

My chest piece is by far my weakest slot...but I'm impatient..and those bracers would help with Prince tonight..

Any advice would be very appreciated. Thank you very much for you time.

Lunchbox, You are obviously running Kara, so Attumen's Bracers should be available to you soon, so your Chest is the easiest and most efficient spot to gain a big gear-jump via badges. I would say do that first. The Stoic Guardian Chest is the best chest around for us until the end of T5 content (or even T6). The new (2.4) badge chest really isn't the best one out there for us, unless you are painfully short on crush avoidance (and even then, that can be made up in other pieces of gear).

After that, I would say bracers/boots next if you are in a hurry, or look at either the 75 or 100 badges legs (most people will tell you the 100 badges legs for sure, but be your own judge on that based on how fast you get badges and how your other pieces are shaping up). You should also consider the cloak sooner rather than later, although the Devilshark is a VERY good tankadin cloak.

We are workin our way through kara but my guild is very casual so it is quite slow. I am at the verge of being uncrushable but it seems to put me over the edge I have to sacrifice buffs such as have to use agi food or something similar. Personally I have not been around for the few prince kills we have managed. Please look at my gear and offer suggestions to put me over the top without the use of outside buffs.

Thank you for this thread, I haven't asked this before due to the policy against am I ready threads.

Hi all,

Im new to this forum (well, new to posting, ive been reading for some months now).

Ive come to a crossroad regarding my tanking gear, and im not really sure what way to go now.

Should i replace defense gems with stamina gems, since i have a little room to unchrusable, or should i get more dodge.

What about spelldamage.

If anyone have some input on the direction i should take my gear in, i would be very happy.

Tkaa,

I would look at trying to increase your stamina by replacing some of your +def enchants/gems with stamina ones. At 536 you are well over uncrittable, it would probably serve you better to start stacking stamina at this point, and avoidance where necessary for maintaining uncrushability. The new badge legs (when Moonglade opens up the badge vendor) would be well worth it for you.

You should also look try to get Scryers exalted for the improved shoulder enchant.

And... to push up your spelldmg you should also aim to get the Cudgel of Consecration or the S1 gavel.

New shoulders asap - Righteous ones would be ideal, and gem with the new dodge/sta gem. You're probably sick of running Botanica though! Look at getting the Bracers of the Green Fortress crafted too, and if the Maiden glvoes drop for you then take them.

Seems like people are asking for advice way faster than others are able to give them :P

Gonna try again.

My friends want me to tank heroics for them, but to be honest I'm not sure if my gear is up for it.
I've tanked HC Ramparts, Blood Furnace and Mechanar, SP and UB so far, no real problems, but I'm afraid I'm gonna get a real beating in any harder heroics. (Especially MGT, which I really want the trinket and mace from)
What do I need to improve, and how?

@saltychip

Commendation and Pocketwatch...

If you have the DMC:vengeance then you can keep for your effective health set, but I think its a waste of money.

@shayna

You should be fine to start heroics. I'd look at getting a +stam trinket to buff your HP a bit. Maybe the DMC:Vengeance or the Commendation from heroic MgT.

Head,neck,shoulders,chest,bracer,back, legs, belt, are are good. Might look for an upgrade to your rings, hands and feet. But you are on the right track. You have a good amount of avoidance for your level of gear.

I don't know where I can start going, I'm confident in Kara - but have no idea what i'm realistically capable of.

I'm also taking suggestions for upgrades (I have plans for new Trinkets and a weapon, but no idea beyond that).

You're fine for a kara clear.

Heroics should be cake, especially with your block%.

I'd save badges for the 2.3 chest, and upgrade your Wrynn's to the 2.4 badge legs.

Go grind out your Aldor rep for the shoulder enchant. +13 dodge isn't good enough, and doesn't give you as much leeway for other gem/chant choices.

Here for a gear check as well...

Mainly run 5 mans. Have not stepped into a heroic yet, but will be soon. Have not raided yet, but Karazhan or Zul'aman raids could be in the somewhat near future.

http://www.wowarmory.com/character-shee ... oon&n=Xzor

Have 3 items on my list of "to get"...

Short term: Dabiri's Enigma

Long term: Figurine of the Colossus, Libram of Repentence

Thanks
