Kitty is my schtick. I study, I research, I devour information about how to get the most out of my kitty.
Bear is, ummm, ok I can tank if you need me to and I’ll use to solo old content. And apparently, I’ve impressed guildies with my tanking skills, but it’s generally been more of an afterthought. It’s, I can use half of my kitty gear and grab this piece or two and bam, there’s my bear set.
I spent a lot of time learning *how* to tank, but not so much for stats, etc. My theory has been use kitty gear, if I can find a better bear piece, stick some stam gems/enchants on it and I’m good to go. Well, I’ve been seeing posts on how OP Savage Defense is right now. And I’m going to be a tank on heroic ICC 10 Fridays up until Cata launches and I’m going, “Maybe I should put a little more thought into my gear than usual for this.” However, there seems to be a serious lack of consensus on where to go in this post 4.0.1 world.
Anyone need to know where to go in this crazy in between time? Or am I ok to stick with what I’ve got in heroic ICC 10?
In bear form unbuffed I’m looking at the following:
- 51,275 health
- 5,022 AP.
- 6.93% hit.
- 53.5% crit.
- 26 expertise.
- 12.51 mastery.
- 29481 armor.
- 47.84% dodge.
(I don’t have the 4pcT10 in these numbers, although, I have the last 2 pieces I just need to gem and enchant them. Granted, what to gem and enchant with is part of the question.)
Any advice and or resources here would be a huge help.
