Sorry bears, I’m leaving you out today, because I know you already adore agility.
This is the Signet of the Elder Council.
It is the second best tanking ring available pre-raid for warriors and death knights of the mastery-stacking variety, after the Elementium Moebius band – and only because the Moebius band has a gem slot.
It is the best tanking ring available pre-raid for paladins.
And it’s an agility piece. Read more…
As promised, here is my 4.0.3/4.0.6 Tank Gearing Flowchart!
Green = Start
White = Me
Red = Me, making a recommendation
Grey = You
Death Knight-specific information is from Pwnwear; Druid-specific information is from the official tanking forums and The Inconspicuous Bear; Paladin-specific information is from Maintankadin; and Warrior-specific information is from my own flowchart.
For the sake of the flow, I did oversimplify my warrior recommendation. If you have over 1000 mastery, warriors should slightly prefer parry over dodge, but the specific ratio of parry:dodge varies with mastery and honestly I should just give you my spreadsheet, shouldn’t I.
Maybe after the weekend’s Rift beta.
Also, click on the flowchart to see it full size. Please. It’s not my intention to destroy your eyes.
P.S. I’m trying out the Riftstalker, the rogue tanking soul. Should be interesting. I may report back on what I find!
