Today’s “Ask a Rhino” concerns the improvements that can be made from enchantments. Rhinos, like all tenacity pets, are tough, but since there are limited ways to improve your pets, selecting the right enchantments is key. Luckily, Ohta knows a thing or two about that. And now, without ventriloquism or further ado, we begin.
Mr. Ohta Rhino sir, I’m looking to enchant my gear, what should I look for?
Ohta: As you move through the content and get new gear, it will become necessary to replace the enchantments and enhancements that you may or may not have on your gear. Normally a hunter might wait until the level cap to even consider enhancing his or her gear, but these enhancements may be necessary even before you hit the level cap, in order to successfully use your pet as a tank.
Your pets benefit from your hit chance, stamina, resistances, armor, and attack power, in descending order. Hit chance and attack power will buff your pet’s damage, and therefore threat, while stamina, resistances, and armor will boost survivability. Mix and match the enhancements to your gear based on your greater need, more threat or more survivability. Or collect two sets of gear, enchanting one for threat and one for survivability and mix the gear as needed.
For each slot, I have included a few options which I believe to be good choices respectively. I have also included the alternatives to more expensive choices.
Thanks for asking,
Ultimately, I have to trust the databases since im not 80 yet, so I may need to update the list as time goes on. Ive also posted this on the Tanking page. If any of you spot a useful enhancement I haven’t listed here, let me know.
