Decent tanking gear for non mc instances like UBRS LBRS Scholo Strat etc
Anyone got a pic off this?
.... they're black and grey, and look tight! WAAAY better than McShoulderpads!
lol, they can't be sold, they are bind on pickup...
I got them as my blue in Scholo. The defense is pretty good... I don't know of any other high-level defense shoulders... but whoever said some +stam would be nice was right. I sacrificed +15stam for these things. I guess that's the tradeoff with warrior gear though :)
My warrior has these, a guild paladin also has them, they are good for tanking purposes.
Combine these with the deathbone chest and 1 other piece of deathbone from scholomance and you have tanking armour of resonable specification, even after the latest defence nerf.
These will easily hold you over and keep you tanking.
Personally I will be holding these for instances, while I work for my valour shoulders and boots. And even when I have the valour shoulders I will be keeping these in the bank as my tanking gear.
You need the Blood of innocents which can be obtained in 2 ways.
1: Kill the Blood Steward of Kirtonos who can be found in the first main room after the entrance - The Steward wanders between the book shelf back in the room and looks like a warlocks soccubus. (about 30% droprate on blood)
2: (hard way) Do a quest where you have to kill Jandice Barov in the last part of Scholo in a group of 5 - quest is a 3-part quest and starts in front of main entrance. Blood is quaranteed from quest (obvious)
wow, the most armor on shoulders in the whole game. and +10 defensive skills too. these shoulders fit great into anyone's tanker gear. can't wait to get these
These aren't bad but there are 2 other semi-easy to obtain shoulders that would be better for tanking. Those are:
1.Bulky Iron Spaulders, use until you can get:
2.Stockade Pauldrons(best pre-mc/bwl).
Its so stupid to see people say ''Who drops this?'' when the name of the boss stands 3 cm further up on the page...Take a look, Then Ask!
these dropped in scholomance. And what happens when we need roll for them? Surprise surprise, a paladin need rolls for them! And he wins too. Paladins don't need these shoulders, warriors do. I really wanted those, i would never roll on a lightforge item. Im so freaking tired of paladins. Horde warriors has it much easier since they are the only ones usnig plate. These shoulders are custommade for warriors. But what can you do?
I got this on my 1st ever raid (( 5 man now after the patch )) I was the only plate wearer so I got them by default (( 59 warrior here )) woot ! neither valor helmet or boots dropped but that's ok this thing rocks
Should i take Valor..mainly for the stats..or these for the armor points and the +def
i am a protection spec warrior.
I sold mine when I got the valor shoulders :(
Now i'm gona start to run more scholo and try and get these and more deathbone items.
The defense and armor stas on this gear are great for warrior tanks and sine I see more pallies just using these to stepping stone to light forge why can't I do the same so what if it has mana regain that's not hurting me it's just useless...
Deathbone is good for any pre-raid warrior despite the mana regen. the set bonus's aren't geared for Pala. the mana regen is just so palas have no reason to complain we dont have tankadin gear
/colossus lvl 60 dorf Pala
(collecting deathbone atm)
The deathbone set is defenitly a pally set ...warriors get a hold of your self ..
a warrior rolling need on this when a pally in group needs it..screw you
warriors always seem to complane whenever a pally needs something..(quel`serrar,stoneform shoulders,or basicly anything that says plate ..
So let them have theese set peices and maby they will leave ours alone..
Deathbone used to be the ultimate for pre-mc tanks. But then they decided that all those paladin tanks needed an armor set.....
now i no most of you are gonna flame the crap outta me be wtf is up with these shoulder pices having more armor then Pauldrons of Wrath(642 armor) now you will probably say because wrath has plenty of stats but comeon people tier 2 raid set beaten in armor count by shoulders that drop in a 5 man group?
Paladins and warriors both use plate,therefore these are great for both classes. Paladins can tank, if not better than some warriors if full protection spec. These shoulders make a nice addition for the PALADIN deathbone set. I also suggest getting the golem skull helm to top off the deathbone set pallies, it looks awesome and has nice defense bonus too. I have full deathbone now and still workin on getting these shoulders then its off to get the helm. :)
Because I got my Teir 2 and Teir 1 gear I used a mixture of Deathbone (back in the days when it was sprit and not mana regen stat) along with other blues for max armour and stam.
These shoulders are ammazing, I sacrificed hp for the high armour and high defence value (the same as what I did when I used my old legplates of the ethernal guardian, which is just like these except legs)I got outrolled on this once by a pally and on the second time I went (because I was using MY blood to summon him) when the shoulders droped and the Paladin wanted it after before telling me he did'nt I just booted his ass from the raid and took them, nothing against pallys but they seriously cant take 3 sets of gear (healing, DPS and tanking) and not expect warriors to have a complain. We dont touch your Int and healing gear because you act as great healers, so the same respect should be applied to warriors when they are after defence gear.
when i got the expansion pack:)
i started a dreani and a level 57 came over and said do you want to join a burning raid called the callers and i said why not
and i joined it and then we went out killing loads of vale moths.....the end
i currently have these on my lvl 60 warrior and a lvl 60 pally in my guild also wears them.. decent enough to hold us over until valor/lightforge sets drop. would be much better with some kind of stats bonus tho
looks quite decent for tanking, lack of stats tho
is it worth getting?
the AC / def combo on these babies was great, but the lack of +stam and soon-to-be lower defence (-33% to all +def items) has left me seeking an upgrade. The Stockade Pauldrons are great world drops, but I'll wait out the Pauldrons of Might from Sulfuron...and save the coin.
with librams and a health/stamina enchant here and there its worth it.. Depends on what u want, and what else u have..
depending on ur other gear the 688 AC would be a godsend ( 688 AC in shoulders is a godsend either way )
Jus depends on ur gear and what u want as a whole
the look of these is disgusting, look like some mid level cloth shoulders
i have a full set of deathbone for tanking right now (until i get might) and these go well i took the librams and added the health enchant and with deathbone they are amazing tank set (and they god with deathbone too)
Wasn't an upgrade over the Bile-Etched Spaulders when they dropped in a run for me.
The extra defense only gave about .8% more reduction. Hardly worth the stats loss.
A holdover piece as said below. With how often the pauldrons of might drop, and the line to get em. Could use these for a LONGGGG while lol.
These are pretty terrible now that def-cap is no longer a thing for warrior tanks.
They do have high armor which is nice but no stamina at all is a huge drawback.
should be what you want as a tank, and if you can't find those
is a nice BoE alternative.
