    Default Insanity Sliver vs Wind's Breath: Tank Trinkets

    Hey, I've heard conflicting comments, but which is the best trinket for rogue tanks (assuming no raids)? By the same token, which is the best trinket in general assuming raids? I've tried to find information and have come up short. Thanks ahead of time for the comments.

    Gruh forgot to ask, but may I ask why? To my understanding Wind has an ICD while Sliver does not.

    Its a decent rate, but the problem is overhealing. Winds Breath is the best tanking trinket. I also use the whitefall rep trinket alot also.

    Winds Breath has no ICD

    Rule of thumb for tanking though is:

    Dmg Prevented > Dmg Healed

    A lot of us use a variant of 22 BD/22 Sin/22 RS with a few points shifted about. Can solo normal dungeons, tank T2's and solo pretty hefty stuff, just make use of Guardian Phase when needed (T2's) and Stalker Phase otherwise.

    I solo normal/major rifts in EI with:
    And by solo I mean pull the whole phase and aoe it down together.

    28rs 25sin 13bd

    I'm not sure if its heavy gear dependent but with my AP poisons heal for 300 a tick and I have 60% deflect.

    Macros and gameplay should be self explanitory

    Leaching Poison heals for a static amount, as best I can tell. Doesn't seem to be affected by the damage done.

    The thing about leeching poison, is that the heal portion uses the AP you have at the time you cast the buff, (or did when I tested about a month after 1.5 went live). If you want max healing, you have to cast it again once you have your AP maxed out with annihilate/bd crystal/etc.

    EDIT: This is with poison mastery, of course.

    The big brother to Winds Breath and I assume a similar proc rate. Haven't really looked at it in depth.
