Well my guild started T6 content not long ago, and i was just browsing maxdps.com and according to the website, blood stained pauldrons are better then my current T5 shoulders (socketed with 2 epic gems +10 str x2), but i wonder, i was told and i experienced myself that STR > anything else, but now should i try to lower my ap for more arP? what's the next step ?
Thank you..

Did you enter your stats? Entering your stats changes the value of the items listed.

How much str vs how much arp? Obviously 100arp is better than 3str. And yes, as your arp increases, the value of arp increases...but no, there is no hard and fast rule that tells you when arp is better than str. You basically need to rely on spreadsheets or maxdps.com.

Ok, I am confused...what does the question on shoulders have to do with ArP? Neither one of those shoulders has any armor penetration, and yes the Rage shoulders are better than the Loot Reaver ones. I personally decided that until I can get a minimum of 400 ArP I am not using any of that kind of gear, it does take away from other stats, and I do not think having 100-200 static ArP is worth the loss in other areas.

At high gear levels, Armor Penetration is better than Str, especially once you start stacking it. Str is 2nd best though. Dont try to give up AP for Armor Penetration, give up worse stats like Haste, Hit (if over the cap for specials), and Crit.

I wish i could get the 2 hand fury warrior in the guild to realize this, he gems for crit... And stacks as much arp as he can.

Dorys = 112
Angelistas = 126
and 2 pieces of S3/S4 = 168

= 406

I hope you already have a MS Blood Frenzy warrior in the raid because a 2hand fury warrior should be MS Blood Frenzy first and foremost.

I have Dory's, wearing Vengeance wrap till I get more ArP.

Wearing PVP ring with 56 ArP because I do not have a better ring (hypocritical, I know)

Had to get badge boots before Angelista's because I could not lose that much hit rating.

Saving arena points for S3 legs now :)
