View Full Version : Some socketing questions.

Hey guys, i just got two major upgrades last night, a Gyro-Balanced Khorium Destroyer and the Iron Gauntlets of the Maiden, but i am stumped on what to socket them with, based on my armory, listed below...

The Armory (http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Emerald+Dream&n=Lazlar)

And the two items...

Gyro-Balanced Khorium Destroyer- Gyro-Balanced Khorium Destroyer - Items - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=32756)

Iron Gauntlets of the Maiden- Iron Gauntlets of the Maiden - Items - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=28518)

What do you think would be the best socket choices for me? i have well over 490 defense, so should i just load the gloves with solid stars of elune or would a +4 shield block rating be worth geting the bonus. I was thinking a +8 Hit rating gem on the gun, but i'd like some differant opinions, thanx to anyone who can help me =)

If your having TPS problems a +8 hit isn't bad but otherwise I would go with Solid Star of Elune. Almost every gem slot I have is that.

For the gun I choose a talasite (due to the socket bonus you won't loose a lot of stam compared to a star of elune), for the maiden gloves I took 2 stars of elune. Hit is an option of course as well.

Block rating is next to useless

Also surely you have the karazhan ring :p (replace either of your rings, id replace elementium band with the karazhan ring since block value is nice)

Lucky man.

That gyro-balanced khorium destroyer is the best tanking gun I've seen in the game yet.
