I don't see why not. I mean there isn't much for you to upgrade in Kara so you should be fine to move on.

If the new chest piece puts you at uncrushable then with good healers you could do any boss. Without being uncrushable then Nightbane and Prince will be very very hard. If you aren't uncrushable then i'd get the libram first before the chest piece. Also, without good healers it will be hard for those bosses as well even with uncrushable.

Where to go now ?

Can any of you wiz kids give me a hint how to improve my gear.

Moroes is holding onto his watch :-(
Princess in Mgt, same :-(

Apart from that, where do you see that I might squeeze a little improvement in ?
Gemming/enchants or gear.

Tanked Kara except for Maiden, Gruul twice in our 20/21 man takes, and 4 first bosses in ZA.

Btw, should I roll for the shoulders on Gruul ?

:shock:

My advice is simply this.

Ditch the Ret Gear for some Spelldamage stuff, get more Parry/Dodge/Block rating and Defense and read this sticky:

http://www.failsafedesign.com/maintanka ... .php?t=163

At the moment, I wouldn't have you tanking anything in a Raid.

Oh and ditch the +Int enchant on your weapon and get a +Spelldamage one.

Postby Borknagar » Wed Apr 09, 2008 4:48 am

Ok, topic says it all. My head hurts, I cant figure out which badge reward to get next?

Anger is a toss up, Bloodboil is going to hurt (need more armor). The main problem with Anger will be your level of spelldamage I think, because I usually drop to more threat gear, but in your gear you can't really do that.

Toss up means it could go either way, you might make it fine depending on your healers and dps or you might get murdered. I'll be honest, if I were you I wouldn't want to tank them yet.

Most certainly try to get the Commendation before then, because on Anger you WILL hit AD level a lot.

err, define "toss up". This is actually a real doubt because I haven't heard such expression yet.

You might try out the timewarden's leggings from KoT rep. They will be a significant stamina upgrade. Also, you could do +12 stamina to wrists over +9.

Toss up = Coin toss, or as he mentioned later on "it could go either way".

And Delrissa hates me <cry>

badge question

Postby Pillar » Wed Apr 09, 2008 8:28 am

I don't get to run heroics with any regularity, but I do run Kara with my guild weekly (currently the OT). I got the libram of repentance with badge rewards, and now have about 30 again. Just curious as to what rewards I should save for/aim for. Should I start low with whatever upgrades I can get, or save for something big?

I tried searching, but it came back with an enormous amount of threads. just wondering what people recommended as to what badge items that they usually got first- shield? pants? belt? etc

also- i am still crushable. is there any badge gear, other than the libram which i already own, that would be advisable to get/normal add as well. if i would normally get it as i get better gear, it would be advisable to get it over another piece if it will help with getting uncrushable
