I am looking next week after wednesday restart friendly group who wants go mythic dungeons or do normal raid. I have never got further than dragons in emerald nightmare (I've done others but not dragons,cena or xavius). so i am looking group for doing raid :).
My gear is http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/stormrage/Rhyovor/simple and i am tank :)
Having a bit of issue deciding between two artifact relics because one has a horrendous trait increase and a significant iLvl boost, and the other has the better trait.
Breakdown of the two:
Ravencrest's Wrath - Mythic Warforged 850, +43 iLvl, +1 Molten Skin.
Fires of Heaven - Warforged 835, +39 iLvl, +1 Pyroclasmic Paranoia.
Everything I have read so far suggests that iLvl is always superior to the trait, but given this is the best possible trait vs one of the worst possible, I'm not so sure in this case! Any help would be much appreciated.
I'm looking for some insight into the gearing strategy for challenge modes as a tank.
Honestly, how should I be gearing? From the guide on the webiste, I understand that going crit/mastery is an option. What does this mean though - am I to use DPS pieces and reforge/gem for crit mastery after hit/expertise caps, ignoring defensive stats? Is this strategy viable for challenge modes?
I ran a sim using the Challenge mode settings and modeled over TMI to find my stat weights.
I plugged it into AMR and it returned a full stamina gemming and reforges to parry. I understand that the Theck-Meloree Index is designed to quantify "smoothness". As such I can see why it gems for full stamina. Given these two models, which one should I be using for challenge modes?
1. Do I use DPS pieces and crit/mastery gemming/reforges with stamina enchants for crit/mastery gearing?
2. How would you gear/gem for challenge modes as a protection warrior?
Having gone through a few challenge mode attempts and successfully completed gold for SPM, the best advice for any prot warrior gearing specifically for CMs is to find high ilvl avoidance gear (dodge/parry) with multiple gem slots. The mobs hit relatively hard and gearing for avoidance increases rage generation and thus SBLK/SBAR uptime. If you can't find avoidance gear, reuse the DPS gear but regem and reforge it properly.
Tanking CMs don't require the best gear to do but needs the player to manage both offensive and defensive cooldowns for the party as well as himself/herself.
Good luck to all aspiring prot tanks and hope you get your gold without much trouble!
as far as assassination goes, I'm doing a healthy amount of dps around the 290-300k mark, however, my raidleader was asking me to try out subtlety to see if it'll turn out to be more dps than I'm currently pulling. My question is whether or not I'd have to scrap almost my entire gear set and somehow try to pull in much more crit, or if a simple reforging out of mastery would do(after gemming and enchanting of course). (nevermind the talents, I use a very weird build for farming old content)
