Really needs to be brough up to date.

I'll do my best to add as much as possible, slowly but surely, however my knowledge is limited and I know little about most raid's loot.--Lyco 04:48, March 3, 2010 (UTC)

A couple of thoughts:

1) Does there really need to be a seperate page for DK tank gear? I haven't explored DKs much but is the only difference that DKs don't use gear with block value/rating? If so then we could just put an asterisk on any gear that has block value/rating. Megiddo1013 (talk) 09:50, March 4, 2010 (UTC)

2) Now that there are plenty of heroics including icecrown dungeons, maybe we should limit this page to purple epic gear? The only exception to this might be trinkets since those seem to be the last thing that gets upgraded and often people have complete epic gear except for their trinket.

3) We should add an Item Level column to each of the tables so that people can see quickly the relative value of each piece for a particular slot. The tables should also be sorted by Item Level if not already. Megiddo1013 (talk) 09:56, March 4, 2010 (UTC)

I really couldn't comment on DK tanks, I really have no idea what so ever.

I think your idea of only epic gear being listed isn't a good one however. The page is for Wrath of the Lich King tanking gear and that encompases all tank apropriate gear from Wrath of the Lich King onwards (until Cataclysm of course). Plus I know from experience, having used this guide myself, that its helpful to have the superior items there. Your other idea of adding another section to the tables for item level is sound, not all that necessary however, since mousing over the item link will bring up the tooltip, though this could be said about the stats on the tables aswell so it doesn't matter either way in my opinion. And your suggestion of sorting by item level is also a good idea, the tables are sorted in order of how good the item is, or which is better at the moment, so in most cases that should mean that they are already sorted by item level, as if an item is better than the one before it will generaly have a higher item level, though this isn't always the case. I think the current sorting of items with better stats being lower down the list, no matter of its item level, should stay. --Lyco 04:28, March 8, 2010 (UTC)


I've updated the gem section with every gem useful to Warrior/Paladin Tanks I could find on Wowwiki that are Epic and Rare/Superior in Quality, I don't think its necessary to add the greens just like we don't really need to expand on the 1 piece of green gear we have listed. And some people may laugh at me on this but I can be rather clueless about some things: I left out any gems with the resilience stat, however I'm not 100% on whether it's useful to tanks. It always sounded like the type of thing useful to tanks to me personaly but I've never used any gems with it for tanking nor any gear so I've always assumed it's a pvp only stat, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong and I'll add those gems too.--Lyco 06:02, April 2, 2010 (UTC)
