Drops from Illidan Stormrage in the Black Temple.
Apart from the huge defensive bonuses, this item gives at least 1120 health if only a Powerful Earthstorm Diamond and a Defender's Tanzanite are placed. To be honest, this is huge.
This could even be worth replacing the tier 6 helmet with, providing you have the other 4 tier 6 items to give you the equip bonus. this is without a doubt one of the best pieces of tanking armor, barring shields that is.
mm...looks impenetrable indeed
So true Lavernius. And if you guys are wondering who on earth could actually have the ability to choose between the tier 6 helm and this helm...welll take a look for yourself
Leader of Nihilum!
The screenshot for this item is incorrect! The screenshot shows the Helm of the Illidari Shatterer .
Definitely one of the best tanking pieces in-game at present!
same model as t6, but ears and horns pass through :)
By the looks of it, it seems Blizzard has no intentions updating the Tier 6 Helm-Item with more desirable stats.
If you have the Tier 5 Helm or the Engineering Tanking Goggles it is no upgrade taking this Tier-Item unless you're going for set-bonusses (wich of only the 4-set bonus is of higher quality -
Again, if you have the Tier 5 Helm or the Engineering Goggles it would be best to save your DKP, (given that you use dkp) or roll untill you have the chance to obtain this Tanking Helm. The Protector Token from Archimonde is way more valuable to your Shamans and Hunters.
I believe this helmet has the most armor in the game (over the
what is the drop rate of the faceplate of the impenetrable? 11%??? o.O there is no way because ive farmed illidan 50+ times and i havent seen it drop once!
Sick Warri &*!@
Great for a Pally!
i saw a guy at armory check him out lol 18600 hp, he got this helm
This is amazing! Where can i get it?
Drops from Illidan Stormrage, last boss of Black Temple
Actually the icon seems like it uses the model of the teir 6 warrior helm. A whole slew of helms are showing up with this icon so hopefully Blizz did something to distinquish them at least a little bit.
Drops from Illidan.
Edit: In Black Temple, of course.
If a prot pally can get access to this helm, he can stack 260 block rating and 401 defense rating that buffs their block chance to 45.53% (without holy shield or reckoning of course) and their block value to 803, while still retain 62.35% AC mitigation vs lvl 73 mobs and 18467 HP.
can't wait to see that pally farming heroic instances. lol
block rating and block value is nice for:
taking crushing out of the table.
block value is calculated after armor. So while it gives a small amount of mitigation, it's equivalent to armor bonuses. why? because when you hit 102.4% uncrushable stat, everytime you are not dodge/parry/miss you will be blocking.
VS boss fights, block value is not as significant. But with 400 block value, it gives you another 3-5% mitigation. I won't call that bad.
If you have 800 block value in heroic instances, you might want to consider getting less because... you will have a lot of down time drinking. lolz
Faceplate vs. warrior Tier 6 tank helm
1532 armor - 1483 armor (+49 armor)
0str - 23str (-1.15block value, but this is negated by the equip: block value)
0agi - 28agi (again, this is negated by the equip bonuses)
82!sta - 48sta (+340hp)
Meta and Red Socket - Meta and Red Socket (SAME, share +6sta socket bonus)
30defense - 36defense (-6 defense rating, negligible)
38! dodge rating - 0 dodge rating (+38dodge, far superior to 28agi)
29 block rating - 30 block rating (-1 block rating, lolol)
45 block value - 35 block value (+10block value)
If you really want to see how it looks like.
Go on this link:
Its t6 helmet for warrior. It looks the same as Faceplant of the Impenetrable.
Since I am not at the level to see this being used, something confuses me. Having this item means having access to epic gems. How is 15 stamina better than 13 stamina & 5 agility?
In a word;
Not many endgame pieces have a meta socket either <.<
