Seriously, do you even play a bear tank?? telling people to go get that mirror trink over anything else is a complete waste of time and as far as wanting the mastery proc from matrix resabilizer if mastery is your highest stat then you are definatly doing something wrong, as crit will undoubtably be higher as you should never reforge for mastery just take what you can get from gear. The best combination of trinkets as far as I am concerned would be Unheeded warning (the increase to weapon dmg is massive for us) and heroic vial of stolen memories (the stam can be nice if needed and the extra dodge is a great oh crap button). All you need is 140k health unbuffed ppl, after that go for agi agi agi all the way. check out Mystar and Janul from chamber of aspects on EU armory they are 2 awesome druid tanks and their gear set ups perfectly represent someone well through firelands (Mystar) and the best of tier 11 (Janul). Allison I think you need to seriously step your game up as your thinking is very outdated, agi is king.

Why would the upgrade to weapon damage matter for a bear? Yes, you do more damage as a bear but that's all it is. It doesn't increase shield size whatsoever.Fluid Death is far better as far as that goes.

Agility is indeed king, but trinkets here are ranked purely according to ilevel; any discussion of how "good" they are is pretty specific to individual fights and the type of damage dished out by raid bosses. I don't recommend that the Mirror be a universal trinket for all bear tanks, but it *is* a trinket from which any raider is likely to get some use, particularly in heroic raid content. The 1-minute cooldown and huge resistance increases are very attractive to tanks for what should be obvious reasons.Kalon is also correct about the weapon damage issue; it doesn't have any impact on Savage Defense, which is calculated from attack power alone. The proc is useless to us outside of a bit more damage, which doesn't really mean much, particularly at max Vengeance.
