An Ex-Gnome Tank's World

Burning Crusade all over again

December 15th, 2008 Posted in Class Discussion, General, Wrath of the Lich King

One of the biggest problems I had early on in The Burning Crusade was getting hold of a decent tanking weapon. The Sun Eater never dropped for me, despite countless runs into the Mechanar. King’s Defender took almost as long to drop – I was still carrying Grom’tor’s Charge when I went into Tempest Keep for the first time!

Now, it looks as if history is repeating itself. True, I have my Eternally Folded Blade, but will King Ymirion give up the coveted Red Sword of Courage? Hell no. It seems I’m resigned to hoping that I’ll see the Naxx-10 trash sword before the Utgarde Pinnacle one drops.

Also, what’s with all the slow tanking weapons? I know Death Knights can dual wield tank, but even with two slow one-handers, parry gibbing is going to cause problems, surely?

This is the frustration I see – lots of tanking weapons, but none dropping. And half the ones available are severely non-optimal in terms of speed.
