Drops in normal mode of the new 10 Man Colosseum raid. This is the Alliance version of
Got this trinket last night, it really seems not good at all. The proc only ticks up as you get hit, most of the times last night when I used this the proc never got above 1 (on bosses) since I dodged/parried so much during that 20 seconds. Only adds 1265 armor with 1 proc. Also if you get hit a 2nd time it doesn't refresh, so you only get 20 seconds total.
Not very impressed at all, even though its i232 it seems like the i219 Furnace Stone is still better.
Ugh, they need to fix the use effect on this one.
I did find out that the buff will increment on a block as well as a hit, even if the block absorbs the entire amount of damage. However, it does not appear to increment from a miss, a dodge, a parry, or a magical source of damage.
It's not so bad if you are tanking multiple targets, thereby receiving more hits, but against a single boss it doesn't stack up quickly enough to provide much value.
Well, as cool as this trinket seems, with a constant dodge rating and all. But the proc is stupid.
Compared to an iLvl 200;
the effect is nowhere near awesome. The Black Heart offers an instant 7k armor, where the Fervor slowly builds it up.
Looks like a Druid's tank gem rather then DK or Pally or Warrior due to it only has dodge and due to it benefit from lower avoidance
The use effect is sort of mitigated by the equip. I mean if you have a higher chance to dodge with it equipped, then the use effect is getting raped anally because you're...well, getting hit less, right?
The irony of this trinket: Increases dodge, but the "use" only works when you are "hit".
Edit: Use <href="
They really should have inverted the "on-use" effect here; Start at 5 stacks and remove 1 every time you get hit.
A lot of tanks carry 3-4 'sets' of gear. My pally has a Boss Set, an Avoidance Set, a Block set, a Stam set and a Mass Mob set with anywhere from 1-6 pieces changing.
This trinket helps for mobs, think 'many whelps' where you have 50+ mobs on you and you aren't in that boss/avoidance dance. Tankadins also will get a good benefit if you are running Holy Shield and have massive block as it procs when you block a hit as well.
This is not to shrug off the 2.9% dodge if you don't have high avoidance and the trinket comes up.
Alright, well I love this trinket in ICC. As a warrior tank, pop this trinket and shield block. Shield block will make you block 100% of the time, so you will build up the stacks in no time. Also, the -20% dodge in ICC crushes your avoidance, making these stacks build up quicker.
On boss fights, I can usually get this up to 5 stacks in about 7 seconds or so. Even quicker when I'm on saurfang and he goes beserk on me! With all the taunt trading, you really only have him for like 15-20 seconds before you have to trade anyways....I love this trinket!
