ok i just got bloodstained elven battlevest from ZA WITH +6 STATS Bloodstained Elven Battlevest - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=33215)

i currently use S3 chest (+6 STATS, 2x 10 str gems and 1x 4str/4crit)
Vengeful Gladiator's Plate Chestpiece - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=33728)

not sure what one is better for fury due to the tonnes of armor ignore on one or stats on the other.

currently specced 17/44/0
armory = search overmilked, im from frostmourne

someone just pointed me towards maxdps and it appears veng is better, what do you guys think?

only reason i was not sure if it was better was cos of so much ArP

S3 is way better IMO.

Veng is better, if you gem two 8 strength and one 4 strength 4 crit you will be gaining 9 strength, 12 crit, 12 hit rating, plus 200 armor and some resilience, all at the cost of 80 armor penetration. Armor penetration is very good, but not at the cost of all those other stats.

At your level of gearing, 70 armor pen gives a lower net increase in dps than 10 str would. giving up 9 str means you're losing dps to gain that 70 armor pen already, let alone the benefits of 12 crit and 12 hit.

The correct answer is the S4 chest. (Unless you have Hard Khorium chest) :P
