View Full Version : Trinket vs Trinket

09-09-2009, 10:16 AM
I am a huge proponent of having as much health as physically possible however I do not have Juggernaut's Vitality - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47290) yet so my current comparison question is:

Eitrigg's Oath - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=48021) vs Figurine - Monarch Crab - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=44063)

At the moment I have opted for Eitrigg's Oath however I miss the HP. The on use of Eitrigg's is still very nice though different. Thoughts? I suppose Eitrigg is for melee and Crab would be for caster.

I generally advocate avoidance over EH for non-magic fights, but even I am not impressed with the Eitrigg's. Black Heart, an ilvl 200 item sports the same armor (with no time needed to stack up to it), and probably has better uptime if not on demand. Also, if you are sporting the kind of gear required to obtain that trinket, you could be pretty close to DR on dodge.

I honestly would pick Black heart over both your trinkets, you are looking at more stamina (123 for crab vs 126 Black Heart), and although its not on demand, the uptime on black heart is likely to be more useful. But if I had to pick between the two, definately Monarch wins my vote.

I suppose getting a Black Heart temporarily till the one off Faction Champions drops for me would be a viable option but it is near impossible to get any guildies to come run normal ToC 5m and I hate pugs :( lawl

Not to kick you while you are down, or anything... :D

It took me several weeks of pugging regularly to finally get Black Heart to drop. But when it did drop, it rained! I got both my tanks geared with it on the same week!

Actually I still have hope that my trink off Faction Champions will drop tonight so that this becomes a non-issue :P
