Tanking Conumdrum in Highmaul

1 post in this topic

Hey, what's up everyone!


So as the title states our group is in a sort of tanking conundrum right now, and I am ultimately looking for some advice as far as what's the best pairing of tanks we can roll with right now.


We currently have three tanks; 1 Blood DK, 1 Guardian Druid, and 1 Prot Paladin.


Logs for Druid/Pally combo (starting at heroic Butcher)


Logs for Druid/DK combo (starting at heroic Butcher)


It consistently looks like the Pally takes less DTPS(e) than both the DK/Druid & generally needs less HPS, I also know the Druid does absorb a lot but I have honestly no idea as to whether DTPS(e) on the logs already takes absorbs into account for its final calculation.  I also understand that blood takes more overall damage but has higher self healing generally.  According to sim's, it has Paladin's at the top of HPS + ABS, where as Druids & DKs are not far off from each other.  TMI at our ilvl essentially shows the same according to all three classes.  Do you guys usually use the HPS + APS metric for looking at what tank classes are currently most optimal?  Usually our Druid/DK does more dps also over the Pally while tanking, so thats something to account for as well on some level, and I know the DK at times helps trivalize some fights (Kargath stands etc).


Like I said, if I could just get some feedback at what would be the best pairing according to you guys, from what you see it would be much appreciated. I know logs are the end all be all, but its what I have to work with from this perspective.


Thanks again!

      I have now, 4 trinkets that I am conflicted on using as they all seem to have decent stats and usages/passives. I am mainly tanking mythic dungeons, although our guild does normal EN but I have no problem there.
      What do you think would be the best 2 to use in general?
      I have the following:

      What do y'all think?

      I recently switched from DK Tank to Paladin Tank (Similar stat prios) and I was wondering how much haste should I aim for and is Versatility more important than Haste like AskMrRobot says? 
      I raid twice a week but I mainly do M+ Content and I seem to be stuck at M+7 so if you have any advice there I will gladly take it. 
      Here's a link to my Paladin.
      I am in my raid spec currently and I switch my lvl 100 talent to Last Defender when I do M+.
      Any help is appreciated. :)

      I'm curious just how married to Versatility as the primary stat are we as Vengeance? 
      I ask because I've noticed a marked upswing in my own success once I just started focusing on Haste and Mastery, in that order. Granted, what I've done so far tops out at Mythic 5mans (as of this writing nothing higher has been made available). Quicker CDs on some key abilities, Mastery affecting Demon Spikes + Attack Power+Damage/Healing from Soul Cleave, and the fact that it takes a lot of Versatility to move the needle, it FEELS better. I'm just curious if this is the kind of stat prioritization you see the benefit of once you get into the Heroic and Mythic and Mythic+ levels of content?

      i there I'm new to forums here, I have watched many streams and videos about Demon Hunter specs, I was planning to level a demon hunter as a main class, and I wanted to know how is Vengeance spec doing in leveling ? is it worth leveling in DH's tanking spec ? or would it take too much time compared to Havoc ? I remember devs saying at Legion annoucement that tanking specs and healing specs would have their damage increased to allow them level up faster.
      So anyone tried leveling up as Vengeance DH yet ?

      Recently been doing some raid tanking for our group. Its alot of fun and while I have no major issues with mythic dungeon tanking, probably from overgearing it, I have a feeling that my rotation is a bit off in blood while raid tanking. I had a problem with using blood tap last night, I had it macro's into death strike and the macro wasnt working. I suspect it might not be optimal to macro it in. Is that still the case?. Most of the guides I came across are a bit out of date and this late into the expansion thats to be expected.
      Logs for last night
      Logs for last week
      (I was using 2 dps trinkets last night, EDH and UH
      Gear wise I was running with 2 dps trinkets and  a dps cloak as the tanking cloak I have is 705 baleful one while my dps one was 720. 
      Picked up the Kilrogg tanking trinket last night and have the reapers harvest. 
      AskMrRobot keeps trying to get me to equip it but I am not sure if its worth the slot or not.
      Any feedback would be appreciated.
      Thanks in advance.
