Gearing Your Tankadin from Head to Toe - Helms

Since this is the first in the series, I’d love feedback about the format, and what could be done to make this more helpful. I'd also be interested to see if people generally agree with my rankings or they feel some of these pieces are out of whack from where they should be ranked.

Let’s start at the top with your headpiece.

First, let’s review our intrepid travelers and see what they were wearing when they boarded the boat to Northrend.

Rook – Felsteel Helm
Badger – Faceguard of Determination
Justin – Justicar Helm
Crystal – Crystalforge Helm
Sixpack – Lightbringer Helm
Sunny – Helm of Uther’s Resolve

The list is ordered best to worst, top to bottom, meaning the best items are at the top of the page and they get progressively worse as you go down the page. As you look down the list, you can find each of our team member’s names. Anything listed above their names would be an upgrade for them. Anything below would not. Keep in mind that even though something might not be an overall upgrade for you, you may need to wear a ‘lesser’ item to get to the Crit Cap of 540 defense at level 80.

Valorous Redemption Faceguard – Naxx25 – Kel’Thuzad

Platehelm of the Great Wyrm – Naxx25 - Sapphiron

Helm of Vital Protection – Naxx25 – Gothik the Harvester
