View Full Version : Having Trouble

04-14-2008, 07:12 AM
I'm not sure what to upgrade. Badges are hard to come by, so I need help as to what to upgrade next. I have 50 badges right now, and will probably run a couple heroics and Kara in the next week or two to get to like 100 badges. Already read Berg's and Vene's guides, but would still like some advice. I have 15K life, 17K armor, and a decent bit of avoidance and expertise. My hit rating is at 51.

--My role in my guild is OT for 25-mans, and I MT 10-mans.--

Crimson Girdle of the Indomitable

Girdle of the Fearless


Wrynn Dynasty Greaves

Sunguard Legplates OR Unwavering Legguards


Panzar'Thar Breastplate

Chestplate of Stoicism OR Vengeful Gladiator's Plate Chestpiece

To be Honest, the biggest upgrade looks to be your belt or leggings. Your chest is fine, but the other two would offer a ton more threat. Moroes belt really is trash when you have other options available, but its good as the first upgrade you can get for belts.

I do like the +hit from that belt...

So belt first?

04-14-2008, 07:46 AM
I would do belt I think as well especially since you are still using Moroes' belt. The new belt is teh sexah.

Sweet. I might even be able to get that this week O_o

What gem? +15 Stam or a dodge gem?

Also, should I use S3 over my current BP? I have it in my bank...

I would do stamina, but I am all about EH.

S3 would be a fair improvement for EH and threat over your current bp. The improvement of threat as an OT would make the S3 BP far better of a bp for you.

EDIT Just read your role was often OT.

You say that you're an OT, so threat gen is a bigger boon for you over pure survivability. Pick up the belt and the expertise leggings. The chest would be the 3rd piece of badge gear if you bother getting it at all.

Upgrade them in the order you posted. Belt -> Legs -> Chest.

Ok, so I'm getting the belt. And putting +15 stam in it.

As for the BP... socket it with Stam gems and use it?

04-14-2008, 12:20 PM
The belt has a red socket with a stamina bonus for fulfilling it. If you use a +5 agi / +7 stam gem instead of the +15 stam blue gem, you'd be trading 5 stam for 5 agi. This is a more efficient use of the item level, allowing you to get some cheap avoidance/threat. Crit chance may not be the best contributor to threat, but it does help. A dodge/stam gem would work as well, if you're not interested in the threat boost but still want to take advantage of an ivalue-efficient avoidance gain.

Well, my options are:

Regal Nightseye
Solid Empyrean Sapphire

So 6 stam or 4 Dodge?
