Tanking Conumdrum in Highmaul

Recommended Posts

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!

      Hi all.
      I recently went Guardian from Resto. Theoretically I know my rotation, cd, etc. I'm running Antorus HC, i got the curve and i think to hold with not many problems every boss but seeing my logs my performance is always low.

      I don't know where I make my mistakes but I think to have these issues:
      My damage taken is always minor than other tanks; My damage dealt... same (I build my bear full defense but my dps seems to be too low); Sometimes i have threat problem (especially with paladins or warrior); I should selfheal more but i don't see the need when I am full: i prefer to stack ironfur. What can i do to improve?

      If you wanna see my armor, look here.
      I don't aim to shine, but, at least, be on a average rank :p
      Thank you all

      Just throwing this shower thought out there because why not.
      Would it be possible with reasonable amount of resources and time that you have available, to create couple of generic general gameplay/map guides for Heroes of the Storm? There are already a couple for other games, although mostly pretty old ones. Things like general guidelines for tanking, healing and stutter stepping as well as map guides of what heroes are which priority and how the maps play out? You already have some maps covered at the "map specific advice", but as the "new hero guide format" cuts the map specific advice part off, would adding such thing be possible. Not that I would be desperately in need of one, but if I had to guess, a lot of people would be glad to get them available.

      Since shield block doesn't do donkey dick for most of the tank buster mechanics and the boss auto attacks hit like a wet noodle, is it even worth gearing haste at all? Wouldn't I be better off going for only mastery/versatility?

      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:
      Goblet of Nightmarish Ichor
      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. http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/eonar/Stenbock/simple
      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. :)
