Kara Gear Check - Humbly Requested!

Postby Shamroth » Thu Aug 16, 2007 8:55 am

Good day noble Maintankadins!

I've been tanking Heroic Mech/Sethekk Halls for a couple weeks now and I was wondering if my gear is 'enough' for Kara MT or OT, and if not, what would you change. I think I am about 1% shy of the 102.4% for uncrushable and the rest is here:

Gear/Spec @ Shamroth on Eredar on Armory
All these stats are with Kings on only, no other buffs and no aura.
Health: 11157
Armor: 11729
Defense: 499 (Miss 5.96%)
Dodge: 16.35%
Parry: 15.96%
Block: 22.88% (Not counting HS/Libram of Repentance)
Resilience: 0
Spell Damage: 199

Currently I am aiming to grab the Clefthide Leg Armour kit for the pants, and I need to pick a side (scryer/aldor) and rep up to the shoulder enchant (likely the one with higher avoidance). I also have the odd 9 stam gem that could be upgraded to 12 I suppose. +agi on back/gloves is an option (currently I just have what my GF can do). Should I bother with the Devilshark cloak, since I have that crafted one?

Specwise, I plan to respec to 0/49/12, or close.

Thank you all very much!

Yes.
This is why I'm a humorless feminist. Because rape jokes killed my sense of humor.

Thank you Vanifae!

So succinct a reply, it makes my question look overwrought! :)

Looks like you're sitting at about 61.14% avoidance, which is just 6.26% shy of where you want to be for being uncrushable.

Seeing as you can play a bit with your defense, why not run SV for the Cape, and drop an appropriate enchantment on it? I don't see what else you can do, really...

Why is it I am figuring my avoidance at like 5.3% higher than you are?

Here is my math, am I botching something?

Miss: 10.96% (5.96% from defense + 5% from base miss)
Dodge: 16.35%
Parry: 15.96%
Block: 58.19% (22.88% + 35.31% from HS w/ Libram)
----------------------------------
Total: 101.46%
Need: 102.4%
----------------------------------
Lacking: 0.94%

Thanks for correcting me if I am doing it wrong!! 5% is a lot! :cry:

You are more than qualified to MT Kara, so long as your healers are somewhat skilled. Of course, if your healers aren't somewhat skilled, you're not the problem in Kara. :)

No... I think I was on some weird sort of drug that day (ie: not awake yet).

Base miss: 5.00%
Miss: 5.96%
Dodge: 16.35%
Parry: 15.96%
Block: 22.88%
Libram: 5.31%
HS: 30.00%
----------------------
101.46%


My calculations were off, I apologize!
