+1 for extreme cuteness. There should definetly be more girls like this. :3
Anyway, while the Stoneblood flask might not seem that awesome, it really is the best choice for a bear tank. Having 56k definetly feels better than 54,6. I went with elixir combos way earlier when i was a poor beginning tank, i used Guru and Protection elixirs (+20 to all stats and +800 armor). On raids where deaths are likely, the Flask turns out much much better than elixir combos.
The other consumable a druid can pick up is a food. There are a few types of food that are useful for a bear.
If your/his threat stats (hit and expertise) are not capped, a respective stat food will help. Worg Tartare
and Snapper Extreme
for Hit.Rhinolicious Wyrmsteak
If he has enough of those stats (hit rating of 263 and expertise.. lets say over 30), the best food is:Blackened Dragonfin
- for more Agility. Agility provides bear tanks with useful Armor, Crit, and Dodge. There is no other food that provides a buff better than this, but the fish can get a little rare, depending on your realm. My realm almost never has Dragonfin Angelfish in stock, and if, they are overpriced :<
Oh and the last consumable might be a battle potion, even though i do not use those much.Indestructible Potion
- is good for on-demand survivability increase if you predict a high damage burst.Potion of Speed
- is good for times when your raid blasts off with Heroism/Bloodlust and you want to maximize DPS/TPS output. Bears TPS scales really well with haste, and popping this potion during Hero makes your Mauls rocket fast.Runic Healing Potion
- for times when the healers need a little help. Works good in conjunction with Frenzied Regeneration due to the Glyph
My personal favorities are: Stoneblood Flask, Blackened Dragonfin, Potion of Haste.
I foresee many other helpful responses popping out :D Really, couldnt resist dropping a good advice.
