TBC Classic Warrior Nature Resistance Gear Guide

Last updated on Oct 14, 2021 at 20:37 by Abide 1 comment

On this page, we cover a separate gearset for Warriors in TBC Classic that is focused around maximizing your Nature resistance stat, which can be especially useful in specific scenarios. If you would like to see our other gear recommendations for Warriors, they are also linked below.


Nature Resistance Gear

Nature resistance gear will be needed in particular by the tank assigned to tanking Hydross the Unstable during his Nature Form phase. During this phase his melee attacks deal high Nature damage, so you will want a tank wearing a high amount of Nature resistance gear. This gear may also be used by an off tank who is assigned to tanking his adds, as they also deal Nature damage, but is not required. It may be useful for a DPS player to also know about some of these items.

All of the Epic-level Nature protection gear in TBC Classic is acquired via crafting. Some pieces are made by Blacksmithing, while a couple are made by Jewelcrafting. Combining these pieces of gear, some enchants, consumables, and raid buffs, you should easily be able to reach an acceptable level of Nature resistance.

In TBC Classic, the resistance cap for players against bosses is 365. Anything past 365 will be wasted. Combine the options listed below with your current gear to make the best set possible while maintaining the Defense cap (490) and staying as close to 365 as possible.

Nature Resistance Buffs

Lastly, one of the best ways to get some easy Nature resistance is to use some of the party-wide buffs available to your raid. Multiple different classes can buff you with up to 70 Nature resistance by simply using some of their lesser-used abilities. These abilities do not stack; only the strongest one will be applied.
