They also seem to have fixed the bug that allowed the buff to aggro anything you target up to 100 yards away while active.Its such a shame that they aren't able to better balance things like trinkets so that there is multiple viable options and we aren't stuck farming DoS every patch for an entire expansion.
Weird, guess they really wanted people to be stuck using SoD raid trinkets as tanks.
You have 2 good trinkets for tank this patch and i don't know how the "balance team" is able to nerf one of them , are there any players that play tank at blizzard? like come on.
I'm against the nerf of the damage debuff, whereas it does a bit much damage than other in MM+, this trinkets does flat 7% overall whereas other viable does around 4.5/5% and anima trinket only 3 (buff it !)But i'm in favor of the brewmaster fix, tired to ninja pull everything with mouseovering mobs while preparing packs
Big thanks to Meyra on this one <3 One of the best, maybe even the best theorycrafter out there if it comes to tank stuff.For the undocumented changes -> Fixing the reflect part is a good thing, capping the absorption value to such a low amount is not. Its literally dead even for bdks at this point. We didnt really need another &*!@ty tank trinket in the m+ loot table. Come on Blizz, do some major rewords on those *!@#ty ones, make em viable for the content they drop in. Otherwise S4 is gonna be a pain in the butt for m+ tanks who just dont like raiding.
Blizz really hates tank trinkets, dont they.
So there was 1 tanking trinket playable from this tier and blizzard makes it garbage . Even it's last form before nerf it was worst from matrix, the guardian sod trinket from last tier . Guess I am going to kill jailer with fatescribe cheat death trinket (another trinket that was awful and you changed it last day of tier and a lot of us went there to farm it last week ) and my ofc guardian ,which is 239 since I never got the mythic
Got it from vault and goes directly into dumpster. Wow blizz. Even less defensiveness for non raiding dhs, gj.
Can anyone please suggest a 2nd trinket for M+ ONLY non Agility tanks? The first one is very obvious Blood-Spattered Scale and for 2nd option, I've read in Protection Pally's guide Phial of Putrefaction is a decent one and surprise surprise, it's for DPS specs only! So, until I get 278 Scale AND 1h + shield at the very least from vault, setting loot spec to DPS is not an option. Haven't seen it drop after doing few Plague Fall runs with DPS loot spec either.TLDR:- What is a good 2nd tank trinket option for M+ only tanks? 🤔
Time and man power wasted on the first undocumented change. They could have just made the 2nd change and fixed the ninja pulling issue by making no one wanting to use this anymore.
Thanks everyone for suggestions, I got "lucky" on my bear with So'leah, the only big downside? 😁 Other than one or two odd Monks, hardly anyone has Vers as highest stat and poor bear ends up getting crit or haste. Would love it on my Pally for chunk of haste tho!
