Name: Battleworn Tuskguard (Wowhead, Thottbot, Armory)
Type: Epic Plate Head
- +60 Stamina
- Red, Yellow, and Blue sockets, with a socket bonus of +6 Stamina
- Equip: increases your Dodge rating by 23, shield block rating by 40, and block value of your shield by 51
- Word is going around that this is going to change after patch 2.4, however: the shield block rating will be dropped, and the helm will instead raise defense rating directly by 40. That's not confirmed yet, and even if it's been seen on the PTR, there's no guarantee it'll make it to the live realms.
- But either way, this is a great tanking helm. In some situations, it even rivals T6, but the best part about it is that you don't even need 25 people to get it. (see below)
- Plus, it does look pretty cool. At first I thought that was a bird of some kind, but instead it's a Troll's face, complete with jutting tusks. If you like the tribal look of the Zul'Aman gear (and I do), you'll like this helm.
Getting Rid of It: Disenchants into a Void Crystal, and sells to vendors for 7g 30s 2c. You may want to keep it around for Halloween, though -- that's a troll face that only a troll mama could love.
