Tanking druids

Post  Bacou on Tue Dec 30, 2008 1:34 pm

I've been a tanking druid ever since i remember, so if you have any questions or something you wanna discuss then please say so. I'm happy to help Smile

I'd like share out what i use of enchants, glyphs, gems etc. But in the meantime i'd like to know what the other druid tanks in the guild use. There might possibly be something useful for me too Smile

Item enhancements:
Head (head enchant from revered Argent Crusade: 37 stamina + 20 defense)
Shoulders (heavy borean armor kit from LW: 18 stamina)
Cloak (enchant cloak - major agility: 22 agility)
Chest (enchant chest - powerful stats: 10 to all stats)
Bracers (enchant bracers - fortitude: 12 stamina)
Gloves (enchant gloves - major agility: 20 agility)
Belt (eternal belt buckle from BS: extra socket)
Legs (frosthide leg armor from LW: 55 stamina + 22 agility)
Boots (enchant boots - greater fortitude: 22 stamina)
Weapon 2H (enchant 2H weapon - major agility: 35 agility)

Glyphs:
Glyph of maul (major glyph)
Glyph of mangle (major glyph)
Glyph of frenzied regeneration (major glyph)
Glyph of challenging roar (minor glyph)
Glyph of thorns (minor glyph)
Glyph of unburdened rebirth (minor glyph)

Red gem (delicate scarlet ruby: 16 agility)

I'm not so sure but enchant like moongose should work with us too, if it happens we should be able to use moongose for example and maybe it should be better to use it. I'm posting here to know if you know if chance on hit effects now works when shapeshifted.
Another question, what do you think about Sons of Hodir's enchant on shoulders? It gives 20 dodge rating, it should be 1% dodge, isn't it?

Haven't tried out mongoose, but according to the link below it should be working shapeshifted too.
http://www.wowwiki.com/Formula:_Enchant_Weapon_-_Mongoose

dodge rating should be like this:
AGI:D Ratio
14.7059
D Rating:D Ratio
18.9231

So around 19 dodge rating should give about 1 % dodge. Info found on wowwiki.com

Best regards Bacou

I've been thinking about trying feral dps as an offspec - never really kittied before - would you have any advice about specs/enchants and stats I should be looking for if I want to try that out? I know feral AP used to be based on strength but I heard that changed, and as I've been boomkin my entire druid career (and all my alts are casters) I know very little about melee dps.

Also was wondering if you keybind or click? I'm guessing the former. I've always been a clicker but I've been trying to level a mini rogue using keys - just not sure how I'd manage a level 80 with all the skills they use with keys!
