View Full Version : 70 Emblems+a trophy

And now it is my turn to ask which piece of T9.5 I should buy with my emblems of triumph+trophy of the crusade.

I am 9th on the list for crusader orbs so the crafted chest is a long time off (damn my roll luck :< ).

Basically I have two options:

- Buy the chest tomorrow or on sunday, depending on when we go to ToC
- Buy the shoulders today

If I buy the shoulders I will lose a decent amount of hit rating (will put me down from 232 to about 180)

Chestplate of the Towering Monstrosity - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=46962) drops in 25-man Coliseum on Normal and Pauldrons of the Silver Defender - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47720) from the 10-man on Normal, in case that influences your decision at all.

I'd personally be tempted to go for the Chest but the Tier 8.5 is already a strong piece by itself, as are the Deconstructor shoulders.

Tough call. Maybe it's worth forgoing both for now and then upgrading to Tier 9 stuff when you have enough Emblems to get the 2-set bonus straight away?

Helmet would be your current largest upgrade.

imho only 3 pieces of our tier set are well itemized - chest, shoulders and hands.

The offset pieces for all other slots are better. In your position, I would use the item comparison tool on wowhead to see which of the 3 pieces brings more bang for the buck and get it.
