Some advice on shoulders & neck

Postby Merlinen » Wed May 28, 2008 6:49 am

I am new here and as tankadin (24h old).
I have played healer with my paladin for 8-9 month but whanted to try tanking (endend with 1910+ healing).

Re-rolled yesterday and this gear is what i cud pull together in 3-4h. ... n=Merlinen
(belt is on the way )
And chest, legs, back, gloves & ring is coming from badges.
Whud loves some tip on a beter 2nd ring.

The problem i have is finding some good tanking shoulders and neck :?
I don't raid anything atm, so it's onley 5-man heoric atm.

Onley shoulders and neck i can come up with is some STA items from JC and pvp and i realy don't whant to start pvp in tanking gear/spec.

Shoulder : + 2x 12 STA gem
Neck : +12 STA gem

I have search both on this forum and wowikki and having some hard time finding any items (neck & shoulders) :(

Is it me or is it sandbox that is calculating wrong on avoidance or am i youst stupid ?? :wink:
sandbox = 95,73 % and i get it to 98,03 %

The Cenarion Expedition Quartermaster in Zangermarsh sells a good blue starter neck when you hit revered with them. The necklace that drops off of the Maiden in Kara will be your next upgrade from there. EDIT: Nevermind, you have this already. Next step is Maiden of Virtue in Kara.

As for shoulders, you don't have a lot of options, but I suggest you simply run Botanica until your eyes bleed and try to get the shoulders off of Laj (Shoulderpads of the Righteous I think). Aside from that, your other options are the shoulders off of the last boss in heroic setthik, the shoulders off of netherspite in kara, the shoulders off of the first timed chest in ZA, and eventually the shoulders off of High King Maulgar in Gruul's lair.

CE reputation necklace is decent for avoidance.
For 5 mans and heroics you might want to be more threat focussed, in which case consider the SSO rep necklace, or the badge necklace - both with hit and expertise.

Shoulders are always a struggle. D3 set ones are actually pretty good, and there's the 'wrath lookalike' ones from one of the heroics - Fanblade Pauldrons I think they are called. pvp ones will do if you fancy those instead.

meh, beaten to it :) nm

The above posts pretty much hit it spot on.

For future reference there are some great posts that make life just swell.

The first is the epic gear progression thread. This thread lists and ranks different epic items to help you navigate gearing up. You can look to see where you are and what upgrades are available. Its worth a look, even if you're not in epic content yet.

The second is the gear advice thread. You can reply to that sticky with any minor gear questions without creating a new topic to clog the forum and generally get a lot more friendly and useful responses.
