Inscribed Ring of Kirin Tor is the tanking ring. Not all tanking gear has to have gobs of +defense on it.

So you mean crit and expertise aren't tank stats? =P

The stats on the ring are primarily for offense and threat gen, except for the strength adding to block value, and the stamina.This makes it a situational piece at best. Proper tank rings have things like dodge rating, parry rating, block rating, defense rating, etc. that enhance a tank's defenses.It is not good enough to be healthy and threatening - avoidance and mitigation are extremely important aspects of tanking. These rings do not address those facets, and thus will not be a part of my main tank set.They are awfully expensive for situational-use items. I can't see myself buying one any time soon.

@BilldoorTanking rings may not NEED +Def, but they certainly do need avoidance and mitigation. No dodge, parry, block, or other stats means I'll never wear it over a ring WITH Defense, Dodge, or Parry. It's just not worth the now 9000g for it.For the record, just because the ring has Strength doesn't make it tanking. That makes it DPS with Strength instead of Agility.

Funny how many of the above comments mention defense/dodge/parry/block ratings as defensive stats but not (bonus) armor.
