Shield Tank Spreadsheet v. on Google Docs

Hello my lovelies,

After nearly a month without a computer I’m back in business, with a shiny ‘new’ desktop. Raiding is now prettier, but significantly less comfortable.

At the request of some guildies who don’t have Excel, I have uploaded the DR spreadsheet to Google Docs, and done the necessary adjustments to make it functional and user-friendly in that environment. None of the math has changed since I uploaded the Excel version of, so you should use whichever format you prefer.

Any future updates to the spreadsheet will be done in parallel on Google Docs and the Excel version.

More armor nerfs inc?

December 5, 2010 Leave a comment

I’m willing to bet a fair sum of gold that Wrath’s armor trinkets get nerfed to the ground before the end of 2010.

Consider this comparison. The Bedrock Talisman, a valor point reward, pales in comparison to our old friend the Glyph of Indomitability. Sure, its on-use is significantly better than the glyph’s, but compared to the Organ? the Scale? No contest.

At this point I’m strongly considering running with the Glyph as one of my entry-level raiding trinkets – even farming Prof well past 80 to see if the Organ will finally drop for me. (I can tell you in advance that it won’t.) I can only conclude that the devs are waiting patiently for Cataclysm to hit store shelves so that they can re-implement the drastic armor nerfs of 4.0.1 without the tank QQ that accompanied it last time.

…but I’ll still have my heart!
