Savage Saronite Battlegear set
Return to board index
I am currently at level 78 and went ahead and bought the entire 8 piece Savage Saronite armor set.
I have stuck with ret the entire time of my leveling , with the intention of switching to a dual spec prot/holy, and was wandering how this gear would work for a pally tank in the first couple of 80 instances, or heroics till I can start getting better drops. I also crafted the
for my shield. Do I stand a chance in heroics yet, and finally any suggestions about a 1H weapon to go along with the rest of this gittup would be ppreciated
I certainly hope you've collected some protection gear while levelling, as resilience alone isnt going to do you much good even in normal level 80 instances. You'll have to buy some prot gear and start running UP/the other 80 normal instances until you're capped with about 20k health.

Yeah Chevrest hit the nail on the head, you bought the wrong set for Tanking. It's good for dps as a starter set though.
And don't even try to tank Heroics in Resilience gear. Most groups won't invite ya.

or the horde equivalent (25 Champion Seals from the Tournament) would be good options, unless you grabbed one of the tanking weapons while levelling (one example from the
Thanks guys for the info. I bought this as DPS gear, which is what I am DPS. I was just wandering what it would look like with me trying to tank the two or three instances that are pre 80. Obviously I wasn't thinking with my new set of 78 blues that I'm ready to MT Ulduar.
Anyway, again thanks for the info. Will probably stick ret till I can start running heroics to get geared properly.
Obv thats why you bought the set.... but people were just pointing out it is horrible for tanking, for that gear MT'ing a heroic instance would likely be as hard Ulduar for a well geared Naxx tank...
Even for 80 and pre-80 instances that gear isn't great as it has no avoidance on it at all, resi will make you crit immune, but piddly amounts of avoidance = bad tank.
