I saw the prot warrior guide on Wowhead, they advice to get the T4 fury shoulders for the extra hit, would you advice against that or? Good to know before turning it in ^^

You don’t have a Meta Gem listed on a previous page. Which is the BIS for each set?

Hi,
as Gyro-Balanced-Khoriuzm-Destroyer is not in the game yet. Which ranged weapon would you recommend excluding the Barrel-Blade-Longlife from World Boss.
Would the Steelhawk Crossbow be an option (Attumen) because of the Hit? Even if Stamina is totally missing?

i can see that u said TF would not be bis and it is nerfed. what are these statment based on ? is it priv serv or is it based on actuall tbc ?
i play a prot warr and i cannot say i am noticing bad treath or nerfed treath with the TF.
so im just wondering where u have ur data from, all the guides i have seen so far state the same, but personal experience dont support these statement imo

yeah for sure. i’ve been seeing a ton recommend the PvP gear and I’ve worked a few pieces into my sets on both my prot pally and prot warrior. The resilience is a little better than defense in terms of crit reduction, and the added 1.2%-1.5% crit and 40-60 AP from the items make them solid for threat pieces. I use the Marshal’s boots and just got Battlescar, having a hard time thinking of many cases where I’d use the Battlescar as I’m already at my mitigation caps.

not really the blue gear just the non-set off pieces as well as the arena gear itself. im actually running season 1 shoulders and chest. as well as the epic boots, belt and bracers.yeah i was referring to my 102.4% crush cap. as far as causing the healers stress… we all parsing tonight baby B)

hello, i was curious because i’ve read that Latro’s Shifting Sword is a pre raid bis option was wondering your opinion on that

why is Platinum Shield of the Valorous better than the shield from Botanica or the Shield of the wayward Footman, i currently use the Wayward Footman and sit at 504 Defense 16.93% 16.16% parry 24.15% Block with 12154 hp unbuffed. at 6% hit (hoping for a balance druid in raids for the buff) when i swap to the Aegis of the sunbird i only gain .04 Dodge and .04 parry. i drop to 21.91% block but i gain roughly 530 armor im not sure if thats even an upgrade with the wayward footman shield leaving me at 12.2k armor (mindful im a mix of pre raid bis options and some raid gear)

would you say the shield from shatar rep is worth getting until the gruuls shield over the one from badges so i can use badges for rings/neck?

also is warbringer really needed as an orc? is that 5 expertise really going to make a difference compared to the stats say suneater or kings defender offers? i plan on getting the ring from lower city to get the 20 expertise from there and see how it affects my tanking. but im finding it hard to want to grind out thrallmar rep for what appears to be a weapon thats not as good as sun eater or kings defender (even though its guranteed compared to rng drops)

Hello sorry for the late reply, so i plan to replace Latros with fireguard, as i already have the mats and BS skill to craft it. and i am barely started with thrallmar rep. i plan on running kara after ph2 comes out as im not full ph1 bis and still need gear. so i hope to replace fireguard with kings defender at some point

could you explain what makes the Gnomeregan Auto Blocker a bis trinket over other trinkets like Moroes or Adamantine Figurine

im curious if its worth wearing something like shapeshifter signet for expertise since ive reached a pretty good point with gear on my prot warrior. with shadpeshfter equipped i sit at 492 def with 138.7% total avoidance. 13.4k hp and about 16k armor unbuffed with enough hit to get me to hit cap with a spicy talkbuk. having shapeshifter signet puts me at 11 expertise (2.75 refuced chance of dodge or parried attacks)

thank you, also im curious because i see people saying we cant reach expertise cap at all in ph1 or ph2. and is that due to us needing other gear for other stats or is there another reason?

Hi, in our guild is tank who is tanking in T4 prot + belt etc. PVP equip. Is it some kind of joke or it rlly works?
He told me it works and he has very good dmg (aggro) + its much faster and still very safe.
Is it possible that in some kind of math you can do defense rating + resilience?
Thank you!!

Clearly someone only read just this page of your guide.

Very well done guide btw. Much more complete than other guides here.

Do you know if Thunderfury is going to be the BiS in TBC? I’d like to play warrior, but don’t want to if Thunderfury is best by margins. Great guide. Thanks.
