TGAPGeorge – Warrior Tank
Anyway, I did a little research a few weeks ago and decided to help out my fellow tanks by posting it at TankSpot. Here’s what I wrote:
I was pretty excited last night. I was just a few quests away from becoming revered with the Valiance Expedition and getting that sweet shield reward.
The moment happend. I was enveloped in the green flash of rep achievement and I flew off to Valiance Keep. To my dismay, I discovered I was wrong about a couple of things.
First, I realized that the rep rewards were for the Alliance Vanguard, not the Valiance Expedition. Dang.
Then I realized that the shield could only be used by level 78s and I am but a paltry 73. Double Dang.
Well, okay, so I was hoping to jump ahead — gear-wise — and got the hope-smackdown. I really should take the time to read sometimes. Oh well, WOW goes on.
Well that got me thinking, what rep rewards should I be looking for to be pre-geared for raiding when I hit lvl 80?
Here’s my rep-rewards for tanking gear list:
To sum up:
The Kalu’ak – Honored – Chest
The Wyrmrest Accord – Revered – Chest
The Wyrmrest Accord – Revered – Boots
Kirin Tor – Exalted – Gloves
Knights of the Ebon Blade – Revered – Sword
Argent Crusade – Revered – Head Enchant
The Sons of Hodir – Honored- Shoulder Enchant
The Sons of Hodir – Exalted – Shoulder Enchant
That’s what I’m thinking. Not sure about the rep reward swords for tanking though. Any suggestions on swords at LVL 80 — as pre-raiding gear?
Let me know how I can improve, change, or delete my list of Tanking Rep Rewards.
