how much resistance do you need to tank Hydross? (going for NR gear)
and is it worth dusting off my old AQ40 gear for him or does it have too low stamina?
atm (if i count correct) i got abouts 390ish NR if i go all out... but only about 11-12k stam and 450-460 def, unbuffed ofc.
is it enough? can i kill off a few parts to up my def?

what ive read i dont really need that much NR but is it enough just to have the tbc pieces and nothing else?

from what i remember its about 490def MIN, 15kmin hp buffed at least, and i think 350NR (not sure on that)

35 (ring)
60 (chest)
50 (hat)
20 (hat enchant)
60 (legs)
30 (neck)
70 (NR totem/Aspect)

That's 255 unbuffed and 325 raid buffed. Should be fine as long as you're def capped (anticipation + def trinkets help a lot).

The level 60 epics you've got just aren't as good as the craftables available now. It's certainly possible with lower NR and certainly possible with lower levels of stamina, but I wouldn't personally like to be healing you with that setup. :p

Being def capped is very important though, you shouldn't sacrifice that for anything.

There's nothing in wow you can't fix with appropriate wowhead filters.

only about 11-12k stam

NO WAII...

But, if you mean "11-12k HP", I'd say that's a bit on the low side.

Anyway... as Hydross MT, your first goal is to be crit immune, then stack up on resist untill you're above 300 and then go for stamina gear to fill in the blanks.

Tanking the adds requires much less (if any) resistance gear... I've seen adds tanked by people wearing "normal" tanking gear (big HP pool, no resist gear). My Hydross off-tanking kit gets me to around 180 frost & nature resist (without aura / aspect), and I cant remember dying ever (at least not before a wipe was called).

yea ok, i thought you might need more than 400 NR
buffed i would have 460 NR and about 14,5k HP in the setup i mentioned but if i only need 330ish buffed its nps.

and i wasnt really thinking about using lvl60 resit gear instead of 70 :)
but i could fill in some blanks with lvl60 gear... cloak, shoulders, boots, 2nd ring etc but i guess that wont be needed

Resistance cap is 365, there's no need to go above and beyond that.

Goto the link I posted and change nature resistance to frost resistance. Same applies.

Note that both Hydross and his adds ignore your Armor score, so you can theoretically tank him in full cloth :D

(Of course, crits will be a problem, but while +def is hard to come by on cloth gear, resilience isn't)
