View Full Version : Help me spend my badges!

10-30-2009, 08:55 PM
So I'm starting to do 10 man ToC weekly, couple with the daily heroic I'll have a small stream of badges coming in, but I can't decide how I should prioritize my spending. I've already bought the Sigil (Virulence was at the top of the BiS list, but apparently the wrong one :() Seems like buying another sigil seems like ill-spent badges. My ring is my weakest slot itemlevel wise, but I didn't know if I'd be better off buy armor slot pieces first, shoulders being my next weakest slot (upgradable with badges anyhow)

My gear pool is pretty much limited to 10 man ToC and Ony, until I'm geared enough to tank PuG 25 man Ony. So no trophies in the near future.
Between the two, should I get set shoulders (30 Badges) to start towards the set bonus Koltira's Pauldrons of Conquest - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=48562) or the 45 badge ones, Shoulderguards of Enduring Order - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47699) .

My Armory: The World of Warcraft Armory (http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Winterhoof&n=Xzanthos)

Edit: I have 51 badges

Thanks in advance!

Personally, I prefer the Enduring Order shoulders unless your hit rate's low. Other than that I'm clueless due to you being saved in what I presume to be your arena set.

Armory should be correct now, I rarely log out in anything but my tank set, sorry about that.

Thanks for the refresh, and it seems I was right to mention hit rate. Go with Koltira's shoulders for the hit rate. That'll get you closer to hit cap, which is 8%.

Thanks Hades, should I pick up the Shoulders first, or the ring? I got the Tank points calc, and it says the ring gives me over 1k EH over my crafted ring. Should my upgrade path lean towards whatever gives me the most EH?

Now a days some tanks will say go for avoidance someothers like me will tell you to get EH, It's up to you, from personal experience i would suggest EH all the way, for ToC 25 and ToGC 25 or Ony 25 EH is much much more needed than avoidance. I would suggest that you get the ring first then the t9 Shoulders (maybe you get a trophy later ;)). Thats because your shoulders aren't that bad, your crafted ring is really outdated.

By the way change that horrible enchant on you shoulders... get the PvP one... just like 5k or 10k honor i don't remember well gives you +30 sta and 15 res.

And ya hades is right get kolthiras cause your hit its los so losing more hit will result in a huge TPS drop.

Thanks for the replies folks, I'm going to pick up the ring when I log on and save for shoulders.

Not sure if this will get an answer since it's already marked "Answered" but didn't want to spam the forum with topics.

I'm still torn on shoulders after talking to a friend. He said I'd be better off getting the Shoulderguards of Enduring Order - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47699) and that I'd be fine with Glyph of Dark Command. I keep losing hit, got the tank neck from ToC 10 and I'm down to 4.76%. Threat has not been an issue yet, but I think it might be. Taunt missing however has, last ToC 10 I did both DG and DC missed on Gormok, luckily the other Tank was a Paladin and able to BoP himself.

Could I get the Enduring Order shoulders and regem a bit and be fine? Or do I really need the hit from the T9 shoulders.

Thanks in advance.

Well as everyone told you b4, Shoulderguards of Enduring Order - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47699) is very good even better that koltiras, but since the hit is now beign a problem for you you should stick to those shoulders until you get Mor'kosh, the Bloodreaver - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=48695) or another good +hit weapon
