View Full Forums : Tanking Idols?

04-21-2008, 10:53 AM
Can someone help me out with a list of the top 2 or 3 idols for Druid Tanks. Thanks!

Emmerald doesn't have anything on it that i can find.

Idol of the Terror ( (mitigation idol -- some benefit for threat via improved crits while activated)
Idol of the Wild ( (threat idol -- every bear should at least have this one.)
Idol of Brutaily ( (specialized threat idol -- good for multi-mob trash pulls due to the swipe buff; however, it is found in an old world instance)
Idol of Ursac ( (threat idol -- Many feel it is worthless. For single target scenarios, it does improve threat more than the first two; however, with a single target, threat isn't typically an issue after the first few seconds.)

You forgot to mention Idol of the White Stag (i think). Its a threat idol too.

Obviously, Idol of the White Stag ( is "made" to be a DPS idol, but it would help with threat as well.

BTW, is the idol's name a Harry Potter reference?

Idol of Terror is considered the best tanking idol by far. Definitely worth the badges. Procs all the time. Also useful for pvp since you probably won't be able to use mostly shreds if you're facing intelligent opponents.

6 more badges and I'll have mine.

need to look at these. only been aiming towards a new set of legs or chest so far at 100 badges.

not looked at the idols - what does the terror one do ? and how many badges ?

(cant see anything like thot / wowhead etc through firewall)

The idol of terror gives your Mangle ability an 85% chance to grant you 65 agility for 10 seconds. The idol has a hidden internal 10 second cooldown which is only triggered upon a successful proc. It works for both Bear and Cat form Mangles.

Idol of Terror is available from G'eras in central Shattrath City, priced at 20 x [Badge of Justice].

Cheers Annikk.

sounds like a good idol to have.

still saving for 100 badges so it might have to wait.....

It's considered by most druids to be the best tanking idol. However, for Cat Form dps, the Everbloom Idol (also 20 badges from G'eras) works out as better dps in most realistic gear setups.

I feel your pain.

Idol of Terror is a better tanking and threat idol than the Idol of the Wild is. It should be one of your top priorities for badge loot, as it will not be replaced and the proc is outstanding.
