4 posts in this topic

Alright i'm feeling as if i take to much damage in raids or heroics, I am trying to be a main tank and need any sort of advise on my gear to Reforging or any recommendations, I'm not having trouble keeping threat or anything just i feel like damage is low and i get hit to hard. My dps as tank is usually 23-32k dps in 10man raids. i got my rotation down for most part.

It's hard to tell without seeing a log from some of your fights, but one thing I can tell is that you seem to have gone for an avoidance stat priority. This is the most volatile way of gearing, and it can definitely result in you taking spikes of damage and dropping low on health or dying.

It can also cause your DPS to suffer greatly. In your case, I see that both your Hit and your Expertise are low. I'd advise you to reforge massively to Hit and Expertise, as this will give you better Holy Power generation, buffing your active mitigation. Also, it's going to improve your DPS considerably.

Alternatively, you can go for a mitigation-oriented priority, putting Mastery above everything else. This is going to make the damage you take smoother.

Although of the two, I'd really advise you to go for Hit and Expertise. Feel free to post back with any further information.

Personally what i think is best is to get hit and expertise capped at 7.5% each then i have gone with Mastery>Parry>Dodge but i am gemming for stamina, exp/stam and hit/stam. It makes for pleasant tanking i dont seem to have any issues in any areas at the moment.

      I just got Whisper of the Nathrezim, and I love it. But I feel like I need more haste than the 22% that is recommended, to get the most out of the cloak or am I totally on the wrong?

      Hi everyone,
      I've been playing hearthstone for a while now and my favorite deck is N'Zoth paladin. I can easily reach rank 10 with this deck but i am keeping track and i have a 100% lose rate against fast freeze mage, the deck with a lot of card draw and mostly spells. No matter how much board control or health i have, they always seem to be able to deal 30+ damage in 1 single turn at some point, and you know its going to happpen when they drop emperor thaurissan. I'm getting really annoyed and have tried things like the eater of secrets to stop them but so far i havent been able to beat a single one of them... I know warrior is a good matchup but is there really now possible way to beat them with N'Zoth paladin? I'm also having the same problem dealing with malygos/thaurissan combos...
      Hopefully someone can help me out!

      yesterday i completed my set pieces for the "Fortitude of nightborne " - set.
      Both pieces are only itemlevel 840.
      This is my current equip -->óriòn/advanced
      My question is now and i'm really not sure:
      Is it worth to use it because of the set bonus or not in comparison to the current breast and shoulder?
      Thanks in advance for your hints.
