View Full Version : Need helping spending first Emblems of Heroism!

hi guys,

well i diligently followed the heroic gearing up guides and got to a point where i could safely start tanking them.

here is my armory page:
The World of Warcraft Armory (http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Jubei%27Thos&n=Monsolas)

ive started running 3-4 heroics per day and now have 40 something emblems.

my question is what is the smartest way to spend them?
there is a waist/neck i can get already or should i get my t7 chest/glove tokens?

im just generally not sure on how to gear for raiding which is where i would like to be soon

any advice is appreciated, cheers in advance

Tailor to your gear.

One note about the T7 chest - when you get that it will put a very big hole in your defense. So it doesn't *feel* like as big an upgrade as it should since you're scrambling to recover some defense.

Ye, check Veneritios list at Tankingtips.

I'm in a very similar situation to yours, and went for the neck first (I can see you have it now, maybe you bought it already). And you (as me) have the best chest there is pre-Naxx/badges. So no more drops or rep rewards there.

From here it's easier to get a glove upgrade from either Kirin Tor exalted Fireproven Gauntlets (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=44183) or farming Gundrak hc for Horn-tipped Gauntlets (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=37645).
And farm Azjol-Nerub for the waist Ancient Aligned Girdle (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=37241), which is better than the badge one.

So save your badges for the T7 chest.
