Are they ever going to come up with a legendary bonus that tanks will even want?

if you don't do any kind of real heroic progression then the DPS cloak is better


In "real" heroic progression, tanks unpredictably instagibbing isn't so much an issue that you need to sacrifice legendary dps procs for it.


^ already cleared SoO heroic.

Also in current tier, both hc Animus and Horridon say hello where a proc like that would have been overpowered during progression, and that's the only two examples in my head right now.

my concern is the agility tank one... does it have this effect as well?

also if i picked the dps one since dps stats are better than tanking stats would I be able to get the agi tank cloak?

edit: after doing my own research the agi tank cloak has the same effect, but i still don't know if you can replace your cloak

The only two uses I can think of are:
1. Cheese fight mechanics that you've already been able to deal with another way (is there anything worth cheesing in SoO?).
2. Make up for you being an idiot.


You only thought up of two uses of it and yet you didn't think of the obvious one.

Tanking has changed a lot in MoP. We hit the bare minimum threshold to safely survive, then we go dps. The proc only benefits poor play and cheesing.


Uh... no. Not even close. We get our damage from Vengeance AP scaling (Which is a stupid and hopefully fleeting mechanic for next expansion, but that's another argument). No good tank would ever turn down the BIS item for the sake of doing more damage. If you're failing from not doing enough damage, either your personal skill is well below par for tanking, or your group's DPS is hilariously pitiful.

With your terrible logic, you must be using DPS trinkets because tank items are for bad tanks apparently. You know, instead of doing your job to the maximum level possible. Do you also try to take extra stacks of debuffs in LFR to try and keep up with the raiders who are filling out slots?

Then explain Paladins.
Protip: Haste isn't the best TDR, smoothing, or EH stat for them, or any combination of second bests.

The second sentence is just lol. More dps is *always* better. Healing and tanking proficiency have very clear caps (when the tank/raid survive the damage going out) but pushing dps always makes the fight easier.

Yep.

I haven't gotten a better trinket to replace the mastery one, but if something drops then I'll snatch it up.

Do you also try to take extra stacks of debuffs in LFR to try and keep up with the raiders who are filling out slots?


Jesus christ, is this really what the game has come to? The first thing that comes to people's mind when talking about raiding is LFR, and they just base their opinions on that? I haven't done LFR in ages and don't intend to.
