Im currently holding 35 badges, and after just recently returning to the game am trying to figure out which item to purchase before saving for 2.4 badge rewards. My expertise is at the base including talents of 6 my armor sits at 17200 with combined avoidance of approx. 40%. the items to be possibly replaced are the kara neck piece "Barbed choked of Discipline" and the kara cloak "Gilded Thorium Cloak". Can I get some discussion on which 35 badge piece
I should choose ? Thanks.

Get the brooch of deftness. It Rocks and there's nothing in 2.4 substantially replacing it that I've seen. In comparison, your Slikk's cloak will be replaced by a Cloak of Blade Turning from Mr.T. And if you absolutely HAVE to get a cloak now... save up your gold and get a Pattern: Resolute Cape made. Almost as good as blade turning.

Slikk's will not get replaced Cloak of Blade Turning. Get the brooch now and replace Slikk's with your next 35. Don't forgo Slikk's for Cloak of Blade Turning, though.

The Brooch imo.... Slikks is just a slight upgrade from Devilshark Cape

Cloak if you are under SSC level. Brooch if you are SSC or greater.

I'm going to have to go with the Brooch as well. Its just got such good itemization and while Slikk's is pretty hot, its a simple linear upgrade on a few nice ones listed above.

Before you buy the Brooch, check out the necklace from Sunwell rep in next patch. It's slightly worse than the brooch, but that way you can save a few more badgers to spend on the NEW badger rewards as well.
