Prot Warrior + Scabbard of Kyanos?

Hey folks,


As a dislaimer I am fairly new to prot tanking and theory, so please be gentle. I'd love constructed criticism if you have any though.


So I was able to snipe a Scabbard of Kyanos off the AH, and I was wondering if has any particular niche uses. My current alternate trink, a RNG 645 follower reward trink, has 183 Crit + 183 Bonus armor, and according to the stat weights the scabbard falls short by some 150 units worth of stats (some 11% in downgrade), but are there fights where it makes sense to take the scabbard?


I was thinking it might be better on fights where there is occasional burst magic/non-melee physical damage where the extra AP from the strength would play a good factor for Shield Barrier, but bonus armor reduces the damage anyways if it's physical and the crit will provide parry to help mitigate melee's as well. The only possible fight I can think scabbard will be better is Orebender in UBRS, but I'd love some other, less fresh opinions.


Thanks in advance.

Yeah, I could definitely see the Scabbard being useful for when you need bigger Barriers. Shield Barrier is pretty poor right now, so you wouldn't be getting a ton from the scabbard, but it would certainly help. In current raids, I'm usually seeing about 250% Resolve, so I'd estimate the Scabbard giving you an extra 6k or so per Shield Barrier while it's active.

      I have a question: For the ascendance / gambler build the haste stat is on top of the priority list. Our trinket priority list shows that a static mastery stat increase via a trinket is higher on the priority than a static haste increase.
      How come?

      I recently obtained several high item level trinkets for resto, but since healing isn't supported on simcraft I have no way of telling what to use when.
      I have a 930 Amalgam's Seventh Spine, a 910 The Deceiver's Grand Design, a 905 Sea Star of the Depthmother, and a 910 Bloom of New Growth
      I'm currently using the grand design and sea star, but am wondering if any of the others are better than the star.
      I also have a question about ele trinkets, specifically at what number of targets I should swap my 930 Tarnished Sentinel Medallion for my 920 Spectral Thurible? My second ele trinket is a 895 Whispers in the Dark, which as far as I can tell should always be used.

      Maximum Effort is a new guild on Cenarion circle (A). I was the raid leader for my guild for a long time and we built up a strong raid team. Due to do some dis-agreements between me and the guild leader I was forced to leave. But luckly enough a lot of my team followed me! We're working to build a guild focused around team work and group progression. We love doing mythics, raids, talking and theory crafting about the game!
      We have a very strong-core raid group, capable of clearing heroic and doing some mythic but we're just missing a few people to round it out!
      Raid nights.. Tue/wed 6-830pm server (9:30-11:30 est) Off night Monday 6-830pm server (9-11:30 est)
      Looking for.. -Any and all dps specs
      - Non pally or holy priest healer!
      All raid mats and needs are covered by guild, we run personal look just for the ease of it.
      My btag is Hethrus#1504 if you have questions or wish to try out!

      Hey all,
      most likely something similar has already been asked but still I thought it cant hurt to make my own post.
      Basically I am a Blood DK ( and I am wondering which trinkets I should use.
      Right now I am wearing a Feverish Carapace (Goroth, iLvl 900) and the Reliquary of the Damned (Desolate Host, iLvl 925).
      Yet I recently acquired a Darkmoon Trinket Immortality iLvl 900 and I am unsure of which trinket to replace. Any Ideas?
      I know the Goroth trinket is technically better but I am unsure as the reliquary provides 4k Stam.
      any help appreciated
