Reputation Grinding in Relation to Pre-raid tanking

Postby jnames » Mon Apr 14, 2008 11:10 am

I was wondering which reputation I should focus on as I level to 70 and grind beyond to get good pieces of pre-raid tanking gear. The pre-raid tanking guide is a little out of date, and the MT gear progression is still a little high for me (except for my tankatronic goggles...).

The guide could use a few additional items (hmmm...good todo item for me) but the information is still quite accurate. The Failsafe Uncrushability Guide presents a similar list of gear to aim for.

Aldor/Scryers for the enchant and SSO for the shield seems pretty good for me.

IMO Keepers of Time before any other as you can get...

Continuum Blade
Timewarden's Leggings
Glyph of the Defender

If you're a Jewelcrafter you can also get...

Design: Facet of Eternity

If you're an Enchanter you can also get...

Formula: Enchant Ring - Spellpower

No other faction gives more rewards for a Pally tank and BM is way easy with a pally tank.

so is the SSO shield better than the shatar one that used to be recommended?

It's comparable to nightbane's shield, except that you lose a bit of block value and sta but gets threat in it's place.

And what Robb said. Keepers of time until revered AT LEAST. there's a ton of tank gear there for you.

Both SSO shields are (imo) superior. The only real advantage to the Crest is it supports a higher max stamina, but it's overall stats are lacking compared to either of the 2 new shields. My Crest has been relegated to resist gear duty with dual Void Spheres.

I would actually take the revered mace from SSO over the Continuum Blade.

same stam, 3 more spell hit, 9 more damage, and you only lose 3 int


But yeah, Keepers of time for Pants and enchant, then SSO for shield and weapon
