Overall tanking

Recommended Posts

Hi.

 

Just got back to the game few days ago after 2 years break.

Im wondering how good is the protection paladin?

Im new to tanking and only lvled as protection before my break. But i have decided to try and tank a dungeon, so I hope to get a few advices here before i start taking on the great task of tanking :)

It's good enough to be competitive, although it's not crazy OP like Warriors are at the moment.

I would have agreed with you before tonight.

I managed to solo Helya on Mythic for about 8% of her HP as a Prot Paladin with 842 item level. Our self-sustain is CRAZY right now. Solid damage, solid tanking and honestly, @Hoejtoft, I haven't had this much fun in game before. I love the playstyle right now.

This is my current setup on my tank. What stat do you guys recommend lowering for more Vers?

Have tanked Eye of Azu a few times and it have gone okay... did loose agro sometimes :(

Currently, you just want to get rid of as much Crit/Mastery as you can and get Vers instead. Keep as much Haste as possible.

      So the stat priority page of the guide ranks haste much higher than strength but the consumables guide recommends the feast for strength even though the haste food offers more haste which should make it the better choice surely?
      Hoping someone more aware of the theorycrafting to clear that up for me.
       
      This mainly applies for raiding by the way but if there is a different answer for M+ I am interested to know the answer there.

      About Us
      Skunkworks is a guild for players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds.
      However, we still maintain a high caliber player environment and make an efficient use of our raiding time.
      We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 - 11:00 PST, just 8 hours a week and never more.
       
      We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. We are looking for solid players mechanically as well as intellectually.
      We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well?
       
      Skunkworks has been around for multiple expansions and has historically always been at the top of the 2-night raiding guild scene.

      Hi, several players told me, that my warrior is not having enough HP as he should with current item level.
      Here is the link to armory
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/burning-legion/wienkszy

      How can I push my HP higher, is there any way I can increase it ?  Trinkets, relics, items. Am I  missing something ?

      I’m in the process of rerolling a tank. My question is: How do I know if I’m doing a good job?

      I currently play a hunter and as a DPS the metrics that I use to judge my performance are fairly simple. If I’m consistently sitting in the top X percentile of DPS for my spec and gear; and sitting in at least the bottom half of the raid for damage taken, I can be relatively sure that I’m doing good DPS and doing the mechanics well too.


       
      However, as a tank this falls apart. Damage taken and even damage mitigated are poor metrics because I need to know if I’m taking and avoiding/mitigating the right damage. For example, I may mitigate 95% of the total damage in a fight, but if the 5% that I don’t mitigate is the 5% that is vital to avoid then I have done a poor job. Damage taken is bad because I may only be sitting at the top of damage taken because I didn’t switch when I needed to, therefore taking unnecessary damage.

      Staying alive is a poor metric too, just because I’ve stayed alive doesn’t mean that I’ve done a good job. What if I’m only alive because a healer needed to make the choice to keep me alive while I was taking excess damage and sacrifice one or more DPS in the process.

      Keeping threat and tank switching etc at the right time is bad as well because there is more to tanking than just mechanics.

      I’ve done some reading and apparently there is or was a ranking system for tanks in wowlogs. But after a long look I can’t find it and all the posts relating to this were over 12 months old, so I assume it’s been removed.

      I’ve also spoken to our MT about this and his response was ‘I don’t know’. As someone who wants to preform at the highest level possible, I find it unacceptable to not be able to judge how I’m preforming relative to my past self (am I improving?) and other people in a similar position.

      So, how do I judge if I’m doing a good job tanking and what areas need to be improved?

      So, im curious which trinket i should use, first of all, this whole Discussion is about Mythic+ content (mainly 8-12) and i have a
      Horn of Valor (ilvl 870 - 1005 Versa - 482 Avoidance - 3566 Strengh all 2 min)
      Raven Eidolon (ilvl 880 - 2080 Stam - 486 Mastery - on use 50% dmg from allies transferred to me)
       
      which one would you guys prefer? the 2000 stam and a shitty on use effect or 1000 Versa and on use strengh...
