Dropped for me last night in our guild's first ever Karazhan run. Not too bad, pretty solid I'd say. Really like the block value!
The socket bonus on this is mislabled. It is actualy +2 Agility, not +2 Dodge Rating as it says.
This is a mislabeled in game, and may or may not be intended for the item. This makes it slightly worse for tanking, although it is still one of the best bracers out currently.
These bracers drop from the unofficial 'first' boss in Karazhan; Attumen the Huntsman.
They are listed with the lowest drop rate in Atu's loot table.
Tank bracers are hard to find, but as they are on a boss that can be taken down with ease once a week it shouldn't take long.
--Also, please remember, this is not a "Thread". Wowhead is the best database collection site in warcraft because comments that serve no purpose other than to debate, inflame or annoy can be easily placed out of site. I encourage people to rate posts and see if we can't eliminate "Y drop should only go to X Class" style posts in our lifetime.
These are changed in 2.1 PTR to no longer be Warrior-only.
The graphic for these match the warrior tier 4 set.
A good Gem u could take easy: Enduring Talasite
Personally, as a paladin tank, I would take the bracers of the green fortress over these any day, as they have more stamina, slightly higher defense rating, and dodge rating. Even wearing my sha'tari wrought armguards atm (currently farming for the bracers) I would gladly pass these to any tanking warrior who didn't already have them.
Drop rate is crazy low. I have been running Karazhan for at least 3 months and have yet to see these drop. I have even seen the Horse mount drop.
Drop rate is ridiculously low. My first tanking epic were the craftable Green Fortress bracers, and now I'm two epics shy of having a full Epic Tanking set, minus Devilshark Cape for obvious reasons.
5-6 months kara farming on my main (a mage) I have seen the horse mount pass by 5 times over and seen these bracers drop twice and that was with Kara being done weekly.
As Aromit states above, drop rate is simply ridiculously low.
Absurdly low drop rate. I have been running Kara for 5 months and have never seen these drop. I have even seen him drop his mount.
I must have had excellent luck, my first ever Kara run i got these :]
If you're farming heroics for the hundreds of badges you need post-2.3, you definitely want to maximize your Block Value.
This one of the best +Block Value items you can get, pre-Zul'Aman and 25-man raids.

563 Block Value total
*3/3 Shield Spec'd: 732 Block Value
732 damage off each hit is massive. Turn on the Auto-blocker and you take 992 off each block. 8 Holy Shield blocks and that's a whopping 7,932 damage mitigated -- nothing to laugh at.
Note that generally choosing block value itemization will lower your overall avoidance. Make sure you fill up your other item slots/sockets with enough to reach uncrittable/uncrushable.
Drops from Attumen the Huntsman, He is the first boss in Karazhan.
Easy as pie, downed him first try, and our mt (me) even got dc'ed at 35% :P
They didn't drop tho :|
On about the 15th time I've killed the guy, these FINALLY drop, and the other tank was a Druid... =D Happy days. lol
After 2 tries he went down easy.
These dropped for me :)
Went into Karazhan for the first time as a step-in for our MT. These dropped, and our (other)MT Paladin needed them as well as me. He rolled a 70, I rolled a 9.
Attumen the Huntsman (Karazhan) dropped it today
These bracers are way better than the green ones from nether storm. If you block 4 times you will block 120 dmg which more than makes up for the stam loss. These also have more defense than the area 52 bracers especcially with a +defense gem.
block value also increases Shield Slam damage and threat generation (SS is instant, with a CD, where as HS is a 'next swing' attack.).
With full sheild spec warrs get another 30% (I think Pali's also can put points into this talent). I can block for around 350 DMG per and I dont even that all that much BC gear yet ... I know other tanks can block around 400 and up, so its pretty key when the boss is crushing you for 2K per shot (and more).
Blocking also seem to work on some ranged attacks as well...
I can crit for over 1K DMG with my blocking gear, its not a lot, but then you realize my shield does that much damage, it really aggroz those mobs :)
you are very lucky if you get hit for 2k crushing. curator hits me for4k crushing, maiden for 5k and moroes for 3k. and i have all karazhan tank loot with blue gems...
tho i agree with shield block value being imba. bracers from area 52 nerfed to 24 st instead of 42
That, from what I can tell, this is the only class-specific drop in Karazhan BESIDES the Tier 4 tokens.
These dropped for me in kara today. As I was the only one in plate, I got them. Since I'm a Paladin tank and block value isn't as big of a deal as it is for warriors, I decided to continue using my
Bracers of the Green Fortress
instead. Dodge > Block value imo, although the socket on the Vambraces is nice to have.
Seems to be part of some kind of Karazhan 'set'. At least items with matching graphics.
Vambraces of Courage
Crimson Girdle of the Indomitable
Iron Gauntlets of the Maiden
Wrynn Dynasty Greaves
Mantle of Abrahmis
See also my screenshot with all the items on in the dressing room.
The belt, boots and braces are the matching tier 4 items,they don't match the non-set kara tanking gear. bellends!
the bladespire warbands from gruuls lair look more like the "set" bracers for the kara plate
Hmm... what's the best Enchantment to put on these bad boys? (They are a lovely upgrade from the NS greens I was wearing before... thank Gromm)
Best bracers till Gruul and better raiding instances, period.
"Class: Warrior" is gone. Pally tanks can use these now.
i am 70 prot pally, pally tanks need , shield block, lil intel, tons of def rating and tons of spell dmg, if ya def rating and ya spell dmg where 2 long bars they should be the same length.and also did i mention shield block,shield block shield block, these bracers are not "tankadin gear" however are awsome for a tankadin, my advise , if they drop and you dont have an epic pair of bracers yet(being these are the first epic "tank" bracers a tank could get in raid) then roll on them , win them , and wear them.period.
These bracers are great for a Protection Warrior or Paladin.
