>>> Tankadin stat priorities <<<

90 Night Elf Warrior
Just turned 85 with this Tankadin. I have a question about stats. Two different sites have tgwo differing opinions. Noxxic says: stamina, expertise and hit to 7.5% each, then matery, parry , dodge with parry being 2x dodge.

Now maxdps says:Mastery, parry = dodge, strength, expertise , hit.

Is there a consensus amongst you as to the stat priorities????

Thanks in advance for you help

Yes there is consensus.

Those two sites suck.

Here use these:


Generally i would say reforge for the hit and soft expertise cap then stack mastery and stamina.

What Noxxic recommends is your best bet for controlling the damage taken. So if you are on a fight like Madness of Deathwing which has big burst damage moments a specific times then you would prefer that route. You can control your damage taken more because you would have more uptime on your Holy Power and thus can use it when you need it.

What maxdps is suggesting is theoretically one of the better was to reduce your total damage taken for a fight. So if you are on a fight like Ultraxion with very consistent amounts of physical damage throughout the fight then you would prefer this method because you would take less hits. You would avoid more hits and reduce more damage through SotR, but you may not always have Holy Power ready when you need it.

Pick the method that makes the most sense to you. It depends on what you and your healers are comfortable with and the nature of the content you are currently pushing.

Last time I looked at Noxxic, basically everything they said to do for warriors was completely wrong.
Combat tables, diminishing returns and you!
