View Full Version : T8.5 to T9...worth the badges?

10-22-2009, 04:59 PM
I'm currently using the T8.5 pally tank chest. I have enough triumph to get the T9 chest (the lowest grade, for 50 triumph emblems).

It's a pretty minor up. I gain 10 stam, 4 dodge rating, 4 parry rating, 7 STR, maybe 200 armor...

Is it worth the switch? I'd be trading set bonuses as well...

The other choice would be some DPS gear, as I let my OT tank some of the single tank fights just to switch it up.

(if you look at my armory, I know I currently have TONS of defense...I just switched rings ;-) )

Thanks for any advise on this.

An upgrade is an upgrade. If you need the DPS gear to take up slack when you let the OT do his thing then they are probably a good option but when tanking every little bit counts - No one likes wiping at 1% and going "What if?".

Whats the general consensus on the 2 piece set bonuses? T8 vs t9...

2 pieces t9> 2 pieces t8
