    can you make certain effects like Earthen Shard useable on Warlord 2hander blocking

    can you make certain effects like Earthen Shard useable on Warlord 2hander blocking?


    I am really digging this two hander tanking stuff. made me interested in play a Warrior again.

    but many skills as well as buffs that apply to blocking, require a shield.

    can you do something about this, now that we can block without a shield?

    I don't think this is necessary. Storm Glyph is superior DPS and mitigation than Earthen Shard anyway, there's no reason to want it.

    Just out of curiosity, why would you tank with a 2 hander when you get more tanking focused stats from 2 1 handers (if they are tanking 1 handers), and to a further extent lose out on the armor a shield provides?

    I mean i'm all for tanking without a shield but I think it's mostly just to change things up a bit.

    As far as tanking goes, I'm pretty sure the new Warlord is meant as a tank-support role instead of a main tank or even truly an off-tank. It seems that soaking up some of the main/off tank's damage and helping with raid DPS is where it's at for a Warlord in PvE beyond solo questing.

    You're likely to be a much better DPS'er as a Warlord than you ever will be as a tank, though I'm sure someone out there will try to prove otherwise.
