Well ive recently looted: [Cloak of Armed Strife ] (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=39225)http://spawn-alonsus.guildlaunch.com/resources/bullets/recycle.png (http://spawn-alonsus.guildlaunch.com/bank/updateitem.php?item=Cloak%2Bof%2BArmed%2BStrife%2B&game_id=1&gid=36967&t=2800951)
But is it better for me than my old [Durable Nerubhide Cape] (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=43565)http://spawn-alonsus.guildlaunch.com/resources/bullets/recycle.png (http://spawn-alonsus.guildlaunch.com/bank/updateitem.php?item=Durable%2BNerubhide%2BCape&game_id=1&gid=36967&t=2800951) ?

As u can see im def capped (The World of Warcraft Armory (http://eu.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Alonsus&n=Yeahbunny)) so dont realy need def (tho i could change some gems ofc etc)

[Durable Nerubhide Cape] got more str more stamina and gives me dodge and expertise
The Cloak of armed stfie just gives 500 armor (nice) but i dont need more def or hit ranking imo :/

stick with the nerubhide the sheer loss in stamina outweights the 500 armor, then the dodge gains over defense (there's nothing wrong with more defense past 540.... it's just we're comparing 49 dodge rating versus 37 defense rating) means more avoidance overall. and if you don't need more hit (you're at 8%?) then expertise is likewise better for you so stick with the nerubhide.

BTW, this is the damage per second discussion forum.

Moved to Gear discussion.

I think that alot of people underestimate the value of armor. For instance, when I load you into Rawr (latest rev), it shows the durable nerubhide cloak at 4644.94 overall points. Broken down, it's 2460.60 survival points, 1798.34 mitigation points, and 38 threat points. The cloak of armed strife is 4711.22 overall points. Broken down, it's 2366.81 survival points, 2010.98 mitigation points, and 33 threat points. It clearly wins in mitigation, but takes a (smaller) hit on survival.

Overall, they're about even, and it comes down to if you'd rather have hit or expertise. Technically, the cloak of armed strife as a tiny bit more bang for your buck, and it has a cool skull on it. I think the skull alone is worth like 50 stamina, but that's just me :D
