Any idea if there will be new badge rewards with the 2.4 patch? If so, any previews of what they are? I apologize if this thread is already answered somewhere else, and I failed to find it.

Thanks!

All your 2.4 information can be found at World of Raids :: Index (http://www.worldofraids.com)

Yes, there are new Heroic badge items. None are for tanks.

There should be badge gear for tanks in 2.4. The cloaks and trinkets aren't all of it. The vendor won't appear until more of the island is cleared.

After learning a bit more, I'll amend what I said. We know for sure that there are 3 new badge items for casters. That's all we know regarding badge gear in 2.4.

A lot of speculation is being thrown about, and I wouldn't be surprised if there will be badge gear eventually, so I'd hold onto your badges for now. Don't complain about it if it turns out there isn't any tanking badge gear, though :)

Sunwell bosses drop badges, SSO dailies give badges as rewards so there will be more badge gear no doubt about it. The vendor hasn't appeared yet.

It looks like another batch of Sunwell loot is available with the opening of the gate on the US PvE servers. These items are now "activated" on the server but we don't know yet how players are supposed to get them.


Thats the official text for these loots.

If you are on the PTR, report Sunguard Legplates as an itemization error. Their armor is too low. Actually it looks like they messed up all the new leg armor in their database.

Legplates of Unending Fury lvl 141 Armor 1650
Felstrength Legplates lvl 159 Armor 1544
Sunguard Legplates lvl 141 Armor 1406

Berg have a look at the sunwell raid loot armor its also too low.

All th new armor pieces seem to have incorrectly low armor values.

Do we know if Borderland Fortress Grips will be a BoJ reward or drop? I am getting conflicting info.

MMO-Champion - World of Warcraft Guides and Raid Strategies (http://www.mmo-champion.com/)

Here all badge rewards and their price

There's some good items in that, althought most of those are still inferior to BT - MH items.

Some Badge loot ... T4.5-5 loot with only farming Za/Kz...

I am very surprise by the dps on this weapon ... around T6 weapon .... for only 150 badges... and .... no tanking weapon ..

Give me threat ?

Sunguard Legplates

Sunwell Badge Loot - Tank Ring

How does the 2.4 tanking badge chest Chestplate of Stoicism compare to the zuljin chest? Chestguard of the Warlord

If the stats on the Sunguard Legplates is what they are, aren't the
Unwavering Legguards better?


Girdle of the Fearless compared to Iron-tusk Girdle.. lose 1 socket lose dodge.

The 2.4 badge loot doesn't look that much greater imo. Any thoughts on this guys?

Once again you cant really compare piece by piece, for example the belt - the one is an agro piece, the one an avoidance piece. I'll be looking at them all in relation to one or more of an EH, avoidance, threat or sbv set and I'm guessing that most if not all of them will be upgrades in one or more sets.

Nothing but daggers and fist weapons for one-hands or have I missed something :(

Yes I noticed that. I started to drool when I saw the new engineering googles (Hard Khorium Goggles) when I noticed that they are aroud 300 less armor from Faceplate of the Impenetrable :S
I need to do the math if the stats gained are better than the armor and SBV loss.

Not really, the armor values don't fit the item levels right now but they should be corrected soon. I guess Blizzard just picks old loot and upgrades them to create new items.

All the new badge items are in the guide http://www.theoryspot.com/forums/gear-lists-rankings/32083-berg-s-tank-gear-rankings-02-10-2008-wow-2-4-a.html with a calculated tankpoints number. I dont trust any of the armor values though.

I noticed that the armor values now seem to be correct on the PTR. Blizz buffed them a couple of days ago. (Not sure if my constant 'bug reporting' to them about the armor values influenced them or not) :)
