TGAPGeorge – Warrior Tank
Tanking stats; they tell us where we need to be to do what we gotta do. A few months ago I scoured the net looking for an answer to a simple question:
“What are the minimum stats I need to have?”
The answers were suprisingly difficult to find — and never found all in one place. TankSpot, TankingTips, and ElitistJerks helped a great deal, but I still found a lot of things like, “Have 102.4% avoidance,” but never an explanation on what that meant. More importantly, when I looked at my character, often the numbers didn’t match. (For example, have 214 expertise. In-game, the character sheet says 25.)
Don’t get me wrong, I’m in awe of the work done to figure all this out. It’s just I wish I had found a list that clearly, plainly, and simply suggested the accepted stat goals. Heh, like the one I did here.
So for the inquisitive Warrior Tank, here are your minimums.
- Defense 535 (To be uncrittable)
- Health 20k
- Armor 20k
- Expertise 25 (To remove Boss parries)
- Defense 540 (To be uncrittable, but more is better)
- Health 25k
- Armor 23k
- Strength 820
- Dodge 20%
- Parry 16%
- Block 19%
- Expertise 25**
- Hit **
**Now, you have a choice between going for either of these
- Expertise 57 (To remove Boss parries and dodges)
- Hit 265 (So you don’t, uh… miss)
There’s a choice because I can’t figure out how to get both, even with gems and enchants. If anyone knows an equipment/gems/enchants combination that will do it, please let me know!
I am not the authority on this, these are just the answers I found to my stat questions. For more detailed info, well, visit the links above.
