I've got the shoulders and legs for both T7.5 and T8 but don't have any of the other pieces for either tier. Given the set bonuses, 10% increased damage to Shield Slam for T7.5 and 10% increased critical strike on Devestate, which should I choose?

This is only my opinion, but, if you are progressing through Ulduar, your primary aim is to live through hits. Choosing between 2 sets due to their threat giving-bonus is the wrong way to look at it.

Which one gives you an upgrade for EH? Without looking at the gear I am pretty sure it is T8 (at least I remember swapping out the T7.5 for T8 pretty early).

The T8 pieces give me +23 sta not counting gemming which would likely be the same as my T7.5 pieces. Using the T8 shoulders I lose 29 shield block rating but gain +45 exp. Using the T8 legs I lose 45 parry rating but gain 84 shield block value. So, I lose some avoidance switching to the T8 but gain some EH and Threat stats. Would losing the avoidance be worth the gains from T8?

I would youse T8 shoulders and legs over T7,5. They're better, especially shoulders have awsome stats!

I've considered this myself, and the way threat is now it's not necessary to try to keep the 7.5 bonus. There are only two fights in Ulduar where threat is an issue and that's due to dps getting crazy buffs through fight mechanics.

Im curious for the pally T8 2 set bonus.. does it stack with seals of the pure? or does seals of the pure just override it because its 15% bonus compared to the 10% you get from your tier

If you're worried about your threat, the expertise on the T8 shoulders will make a huge difference.

Don't forget Armor, bro.
