Getting more time to raid has been a hassle and then some,
but a light finally shone down on me and I've got weekends
free to PUG or grab a run with some guilds who I've pugged
with in the past. Up till now, pretty much everything I've gotten
was either conquest items / drops from heroics / crafted epics.

My situation is this:
-I'm running borderline to 50 EoT, already grabbed the ranged, ring, and T9 shoulders. What should my next purchase be?
-With the above in mind, my pants seem to be the place I feel I'm lacking
the most when it comes to a progression minded set (EH/armor)

Should I grab the T9 leggings? Or hope for a drop from a pug run this weekend?
and if I should go after a drop, what I should I look for?
any particular leggings out there in Uld10/Ony10/ToC10 that would be
better choice vs T9 leggings?

The World of Warcraft Armory - my beautiful warrior =) (http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Uldaman&n=Alastrionia)

also, any enchant/gems you think I should change/upgrade?

thank you for your time

Pants are definately a spot for a huge upgrade. I wouldn't personally blow badges on them though as they're easily attainable (given they drop) from VOA 10/25, as are the T9 gloves.

As for upgrades from ToC10, Dreadscale Armguards - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47611), Endurance of the Infernal - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47679), Chestguard of the Warden - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47811), Bulwark of the Royal Guard - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47835) all look like upgrades based on your current armory.

Onyxia should also be easily puggable and she can drop Eskhandar's Choker - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=49306), Faceguard of Wrath - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=49320), Gleaming Quel'Serrar - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=49303), Runed Ring of Binding - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=49309), which all have upgraded 25 man versions that are attainable in pugs as well.

Also, if you have access to a 2nd stamina trinket, I'd swap out the dodge trink for it being that a lot of the attacks in 10 man TOC aren't dodgeable.

Use your emblems to get the t9 gloves

ty Unfurth for those great ideas. had forgotten about VoA as pugs for that usually fail on my server :(

still not sure if I should get the T9 legs or get something else
anything in Uld10 or 25 that might be better?

and the T9 gloves, are they that much of an improvement to get now or worry about later?

There isn't really any other gloves out there.

Your only upgrade would be the ilvl 245 ones until 3.3 hits.

I would pick them up next.

The awesome Saronite Plated Legguards - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=45267) drop in Ulduar 25, if you get lucky with Kologarn. T9 legs aren't the best itemised of the pieces. The reason people tend to go for the gloves is that there are no plate tanking gloves in TOC, so the tier item is the only upgrade.

I might be tempted to sit on those badges for a week or two. Your gear looks good enough to do some Ulduar and TOC10, and if you get lucky there you might end up kicking yourself for upgrading the wrong slot. Let's say you got lucky in a TOC25 pug and won a token - then the T9.245 gloves might be your best option but you'd need badges too.
