Am I ready for the first five bosses i Kara

Postby Loreno » Fri Aug 29, 2008 12:14 am

Hi!

I am on my way to get uncrushable, only 5% more to go.
But I wonder if it is needed to be uncrushable on the first five bosses in Kara or if I can tank them.

I have been going to Kara as a off tank for three or four runs now, and because of a shortage of tanks I will maybe have to be the main tank tonight.

My armory: http://armorylite.com/eu/arathor/loreno


What do you say, is my stat enough to tank up until Curator?

i guess if you have offtanked alot of it, you could probably do the first 4 bosses not sure about curator. the items that you need to upgrade the most are your sword you really need a spell damage one in order to hold aggro and your legs

Get a Spelldamage weapon.

Yes, I'm sure you do a decent amount of threat in that setup with Seal of Blood, but a Spelldamage weapon will boost Seal of Righteousness, Consecrate, Exorcism and Holy Shield.

Thanks for your advice.

I did main tank Mores and Curator last run, it was no problem. And I got some more gear and I am almost uncrusbalde now without buffs.

So next question.

What to focus on now?
My priorities have been:
1. 490 def
2. Uncrushable
3. Stamina
4. DPS

Is it right to go for stamina before DPS?


Thanks for all advices, Loreno

DPS?? im guessing you mean threat, replace your weapon for a caster spell damage as we get our threat from spell damage(expertise as well but it isnt as effective as SD til about SWP) one like every one else has said then focus on getting uncrush with no buffs then boost your hp,armor and spell damage at the same time with upgrades eg the 75 badge chest peice, 100 badge legs, T4 and so on.

edit: change your talents!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you have 5/5 intellect thing in holy!? put the 5 points in 1h weapon specialisation or what ever its called it improves ALL damage

Yes, I mean threat when I said dps.

I have put the five points on int because I need mana, I have problem with to low mana, I do not get hit enough to get enough mana back from healing. Therefore I almost always use JoW and SoW. So I'm afraid that if I remove those five points I will have an even bigger problem.

Then another question about 1h weapon specialization, does that not only increase white damage? If I have understood it correctly white damage do almost nothing for my threat.


I have a spell damage weapon (the club from Shattered Sun), which I uses from time to time. Will use it more from now on.

the 1h wep spec increases all damage done by 1h wep, everything and as tankadins we are supposed to not have tonnes of mana as we get mana from being healed, your being low on mana is becuz your not being hit hard enough, tbh a intellect buff and kings gives you a respectable amount of mana to to about 2 full spell rotations before going oom and by that time you should have gained enough mana to continue.

One-Handed Weapon Specialization
Increases all damage you deal when a one-handed melee weapon is equipped by 5%.


That means all dmg is increased==with just 2 points cons went up a noticeable amount.i honestly am thinking of gimping something for the full 5 pints.


i think alot of us have misread and easily dismissed this alot.
