    Pro Tip - Blackbelly Sushi

    This is pretty simple but many tanks and players have yet to notice this. is on my snatch list and I am picking them up for cheap for my personal use as I tank. What these mudfish make is the BIS tank food out there. .

    The information is not out there that much yet on tanking forums and as such I expect the price on these to spike very high once people realize that there is an avoidance well fed buff.

    Good information, Aeg. I'm surprised, to be honest. I've been so busy with profs and other things I haven't looked at any of the tanking sites yet, but I would have guessed or . For pure avoidance, I would have guessed .

    Oh look i missed a dodge food buff. Good catch Calianna. Warriors will like the parry one either way depending on their dodge/parry ratio. We generally try and make parry ~1% higher then dodge.

    The mastery one would actually be an avoidance one for most tanks and it will be better for me once I get some more avoidance. Thing with the mastery one is though you are competing with a number of other classes.

    Threat ones are ok but to be honest right now threat is pretty strong for tanks on raid bosses once vengeance gets stacked. These threat buff ones maybe worth more in the future. My guild is 4/12 - nothing crazy but I am tanking well below hit/expertise cap right now and generally not having threat issues barring some bad luck with rng to start.

    Either way thanks for pointing out a couple I missed.

    I can confirm that threat gen is really not an issue so far, what I feel I need more of, as a tank, is to take less overall dmg. Heroics are pretty brutal and even trash can truck a tank fast. I'd imagine that other tanks also feel this way as well, and would be willing to spend money on this type of food buff.

    Cool, we need to come up with a list of BiS food for all classes. For one, dodge is the best secondary stat for bear tanks.

    Well, Warriors in the current meta, the plate quest rewards and available crafted gear offer a ton of parry over dodge. My parry rating is easily twice that of my dodge rating, so if I had to choose a food buff not being a studious elitist jerks reader, I would argue I want more dodge as well.

    Interesting fade. I am all 346 and 4/5 epics now and I have more dodge then parry by a drop. This is withought reforging. Your mileage may vary it seems. I will be keeping an eye on all tank foods and preparing for the wave of more guilds starting to raid these next coming weeks.
