    Default Best tanking trinket to Ituziel?

    Just wondering what people think is best trinket for hard hitting single mob tanking in ID like Ituziel? I been using Way of Water for now but I'm really starting to doubt it procs often enought as blocks are pretty rare, so would +30 endurance from pvp trinket be better?

    I've been using Darktide's trinket (the 4,000 shield one) pre-pull to make things a little easier on healers there, then switching to Way of Water as I pull.

    Yes use the 30end one from pvp for this boss, stacking HP and using cool downs on bomb tank swap phase is important, the rest should be healable.

    I use a 44 reaver for ituziel myself for the CD.

    Looking back at RIFT is bittersweet. Ah damn.

    I cringe every time I see people using CDs on the WOI.

    Not sure why you would. Unless you hate seeing 4-digit hadoukens. I used alsbeth trinket for block for the giggles, pop it on every off CD.

    I applaud the hadouken reference.

    But it's because it's completely unnecessary if your warrior tank is in the right spec and you have one purifier. It's also a waste for mitigating a single attack.

    For first time guilds trying to kill it, why not make it as simple as possible? What are you giving up? Is it 100% necessary? Not really, but for first time killing it, I see no harm in it what so ever.

    Not to mention I never trust healers so f that, putting it in my hands.

    First time guild will be tighter on dps check. Hence will need to optimize healing better.

    I'll write up a guide soon. Too busy right now though and basically raid logging.

    Clearing my schedule for the guide reading! I'll be interested to see how you optimize healing for this fight...because if you are using more than two tank heals you can still optimize...I have some evidence that it can be done as such =)

    I have a combat log line with WoI hitting for 1207 and being fully absorbed with no follow up attacks hitting for more than 9k...that is win =)

    Sorry didn't mean to imply it was a fully detailed writeup on the fight. Don't have that kinda free time. Just for warrior tanking - specs, things to do. I've got my thoughts on healer optimization, but I am not experienced enough on my cleric to speak with any sort of authority on the matter, so happy to hear your thoughts.

    I'm curious about this. Though. Tank never getting hit for more than 9k? That's nice. I do have some logs of WOI hitting me for 700 though. That was funny.
