"No, you will die."I disagree, if you put your shield on, activate shield wall and say over vent "XXX taking over" etc, then you can last a good 10 seconds which should be enough to take down most bosses.You could even do this on Kaly/Brutallus in theory depending how awake your healers are - you underestimate how good shield wall is. Maybe you've only tried this in your leather so that's why you died? ;)

What's your defense in your fury gear? How are you going to hold threat on a boss that's been tanked by a fully geared, fully specced tank? How long does your non-talented shield wall (and if the boss is at 1% why weren't you using recklessness to increase your DPS to get it down faster?) last?You'll die. If you haven't died, it's your healers being awesome, not you. And if they're that awesome, why did your tank die at 1%? As a fury warrior you're not at a boss fight to tank, except in rare situations where you may have to tank an add. And if you're tanking an add, you should be in tanking gear.You're crittable in any fury gear, be it full plate or not. If you're fury in raids in PvP gear for the resilience, then you've just lowered your DPS. If you're fury, you should be dealing damage. It's a specialist role.I simply do not agree. We can argue it back and forth, but as a raiding tank, if you're in my raid as fury, you'd better be dpsing and not trying to tank, because we'll get someone in who can actually do the job we've requested of them.

Just out of curiosity, what's your health in fury gear? Assuming you're playing the hero at 1% and half your raid is down with a serious case of dead, I'm wondering just how many crits and crushing blows you're going to take before the mob comes after me, Second on the Threat List.[Hint: not many.]

Matthiew i agree with the fact that a fury warrior should never be tanking a boss but in regards to arena gear your dead wrong ... S3 gear (Head, Chest and Legs) are amazing peices for fury gear and outperform most gear before BT it has great gem sockets strength high crit and amour reduction as well as hit. put together with some select raid badge and or craftable pieces its just amazing for DPS. Take a look at maxdps.com and see where it rates. Not to mention if your pre-kara the welfare epics make a great fury starter gear.

@ Pucelle I have over 10k HP unbuffed in t5/t6 gear for fury.If you throw on a shield you can take a couple hits. You still have a small chance to dodge, and if you do raid fury, you should have 5/5 into imp parry
