Hey everyone,
I am about to hit 70 and my guild is going to start kara this sat. was just wondering if anyone knows what min stats I should have to be dps / off tanking in kara. any help would be appreciated.

DPS and off tanking will require entirely different sets. For tanking I'd recommend you have about 14k HP fully raid buffed at least. you want the Heavy Clefthoof set and definitely be pushing 18-20k armour (I think that's where I started). BE UNCRITABLE at a minumum.

For DPS, I always tell people if you are going to DPS in Kara, you damn well better be able to do 400 DPS MINIMUM. HP wise you want probably 7k-8k fully raid buffed as a druid. That might be a stretch, but you'll be amazed at how much easier your life becomes if you aim for more HP. I went into Kara with my hunter having 6500 HP fully raid buffed and I got killed 6 times on the way to Attumen.... I never lived that day down.... (Of course as the raid leader I should have known better so I deserved the ribbing I got.)

Is a good read. Make sure you read the follow-up comments.

^ I love how we all read the same blogs here ... :D

When I started running Kara I was at

- 415 defense and 3/3 SotF
- 12k HP unbuffed
- 25k armour unbuffed

These stats are more than enough to start Kara IMO (my dedicated priest healer said that she was falling asleep healing me).

This would probably be worth the read through.
