Which trinkets for Protection?

4 posts in this topic

Hey there guys, just a quick question.  I have 4 trinkets for tanking, and not sure which 2 I should stick with.

 

I have a 720 Warlord's Unseeing Eye with speed and a socket (+956 haste, +165 speed, +50 haste gem), reduces damage taken up to 19.84%

 

705 Anzu's Cursed Plume (+416 bonus armor), chance for 1,526 mastery

 

730 Libram of Vindication, below 76% hp I heal 113,348 and do that much damage to guys around me

 

and the Purified Shard of the Third Moon.

 

So far I've always had on the Eye, and swapped between the boa trinket and the Plume (been tanking Archimonde carries for my guild, when I do that I run the boa trinket since I'm a little squishy and that massive absorb shield it creates from resolve has probably saved me a number of times), but typically run Plume.

I also have a Tyrant's Decree with a socket but from what I've read that's not good for prot pallies so I didn't include that in the list.

 

Any advice would be very much appreciated smile.png

Ok #1 haste till 50%so I would go with that one then I would go with the class trinket for the dps also not only for the shield

I would say that your standard setup should be ACP and LoV with Sera and for boss fights where you aint gonna proc LoV or its useless use WuE instead of LoV. I have never used the Heirloom trinket so i have no idea on how that works

If you decide to progress in Mythic, I'd say take WUE and BoA trinket to play it safe (just stack it with tank ring buff as often as possible). If you want to continue farming Archimonde, you can go with max damage setup - ACP (get one from Heroic) + LoV. If you're uncertain if you can tank Archimonde with this, then go with WUE/BoA trinket + LoV.

      Hi,
      I've just finished normal with my main 890ilvl (54 points) prot tank and also with my 876ilvl (36 points) druid tank.
      My conclusion is the following:
      The protection warrior is taking way to high damage from almost all abilities except auto-attacks which are low anyway.
      Shield block doesn't work against any of the abilities in nighthold and doesn't help with any magical skills.
      Basically our block even with 2 set items, having aprox 65% crit block chance is useless in Nighthold.
      The fact that our main reduction ability except our 8k-ish armor is useless for all Nighthold bosses. Demo, LS, SW, SR are ok for stack abilities or strong abilities but they couldn't be frequent enough. The damage taken spikes are crazy...just crazy and I've kept IP 40-60% of the damage and decent 90% + bracket dps.
      Paladin tank and warrior tank used to be very similar in damage taken ( normal damage taken ), now paladin is taking 100 millions and warrior is taking 200-400 million on same boss. This is because their damage is percent damage reduction and that works for magical also, but our shield block is irrelevant. Also paladins block spells now.
      In regard to my 876ilvl druid, I've done Guldan solo tanking without any stress. I've done rest of bosses without a problem, only keeping 1-2 stack of ironfur up and using rest of my rage for the 30% reduction every 10 sec, and I won't even start with the amount of cds druids have. These runs showed me how warrior is 0 compared to paladin,druid and DK. 
      I would place warrior on last place under DK, as Shield Block is an irreleant ability in this raid. You can check logs and compare raids from EN and Nighthold. It seems that to be so-so with a warrior tank you would have to maximize versatility and ignore every other stat :|, maybe then you will start reducing some damage from this raid.
       
      I believe that even the first version of warrior tank from start of EN couldn't handle Nighthold as good as paladin,druid can now. They were just op at low level for being able to handle high mythic dungeons at low gear for stacking IP 2 million absorb, but they scaled bad compared to others and that IP would drop in 2 hits on Mythic EN content, making it so-so anywany.
       
      Post below if any ideas pop to mind related to the above problem. Thanks !

      So, as you know, Execution Sentence was reduced by 15% in the last hotfix as seen here https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/news/20478238/hotfixes-january-18
      With that, I am curious to see if execution sentence is still worth taking over Final Verdict (without legendary cloak).
      Thoughts?

      Is my 860 eye of command a better trinket for use than my 885 Faulty countermeasure because of the strength bonus? Which should I use

      Hello,
      the gods of rng decided to reward me today with a  Draught of Souls titanforged from the timewalking chest. My question is, do I use it when I have max stacks of crusade or just use it on cd? Say for a fight that lasts 6 mins.
      Thanks!
