Bear tanking, stepping into ICC ?
Return to board index
I don't post really often, but I surely read a lot of topic around here, and I finally have a question. First of all, I'll link to my armory :
Now, I just switched spec to 60/11 (poorly done, I'll have to respec when I get home ! I want those 2 BI points and my maxed out KotJ). But I have some questions concerning raiding.
Am I ready to tank ToC/ICC 10 man (regular) ?
I know that we get a 25% dodge debuff, so I need to soak a lot of damage. Raid buff, my HP is around 51-52k (with my stam trinket instead of
(sorry, don't know how to link items... >.>)). Now, I'm getting told I should get around 55k HP to start raiding ICC, yet, I'm pretty much having the best gear you can get pre-raid (beside the boots... I'm farming H ToC everyday to get a new pair, I'm not lucky :'()...
So yeah, what do you guys think ? Am I ready to start raiding ICC/ToC 10 man yet yet ? My guild is about to start raiding soon, and I'm gonna be the main tank, so if you could give some general tips about the gear and what not, that would be greatly appreciated.
PS: I know I could always PuG Onyxia and such, but everyone asking for achievement I don't have...
I've tanked 10-man regular ICC trash (want to get rep for the ring and then take on Marrowgar) and I have worse gear than you. Don't worry about the boots. Just get in there and and have fun.
This post was from a user who has deleted their account.
Yes, you're ready, for the first 4 bosses at least. My gear was about the same as yours when I started tanking it (it hasn't changed that much either) and had no problems.
Festergut hits pretty hard though, so if your guild gets that far regularly and expects to with you tanking, they could struggle keeping you up. But like I said, first 4 bosses no problem.
Thank you everyone for your reply.
Well, assuming I get gear in raid too, I should be able to make it easier for healer on Festergut at some points !
Thanks for your input :)
I'd go ahead and gem/chant the boots if you're not planning on immediately getting a replacement, a stam gem and heavy borean armor kit will suffice.
I got my H ToC anyway, so I did gem and enchant them :D!
Also tanked ICC rep run, went well, even got friendly and got my ring :D!
Since theres nothing more to be said about if you can or can't tank ICC I'll just post how to link items (since I like being helpful).
Just copy the item url, I'll take
from your original post. Theres an icon above the text box you post in that looks like a globe with links of a chain next to it. Click that, a dialog box will open and you enter the url here. Two sets of brackets will appear with the url inside the first set. You will already be in between them so just type out the item name. Then it will leave you with something like this. :)
Glyph of Indomitability
And there you go, now you can link items.
