View Full Version : 4pT10: non-Set Legs or Chest
12-05-2009, 04:31 AM
as the Patch is probably going live next week, I compared two builds with the (4) bonus.
Item Comparison Tool - World of Warcraft (http://ptr.wowhead.com/?compare=51215:51216:51217:51218:50968;51215:51217 :51218:51219:49904)
By using the non-set Chest for Frost Emblems you gain
in comparison to the craftable Legs:
Clearly the first possibility is more tps-orientated while the build with the non-Set Legs grants more avoid.
Which set would you prefer?

The non set chest gives over 1200 more armor... and more stam...
Gear for the encounter is still and always has been the general mindset for tanks. From the testing that I've done on PTR there are many different options of gear/glyphs that will help or make things a lot easier. There are a lot of other variables you have to consider than just using a certain piece of gear because it looks better for X and X stats, and omg more health! There are things that you should think about like... hey this boss is pretty much brutallus 2.0 all physical damage, fast swing timer, or heavy magic based damage, unmitigatable, etc... goes on and on.

I think I am going for chest mostly because of expertise on it.. since legs + Chest is like 20 expertise which probably will help itemize other slots diffrently
Still in the thought process though.

I currently have Hauberk of the Towering Monstrosity (258 version)
182 stam + 90 stam for gems (total 272)
The T10 264 version:
219 stam + 60 stam for gems (total 279)
Therefore if you go from the Hauberk to the T10 264 chest you gain/lose:
This is downright pittiful imo.
The badge chest:
207 stam +90 from gems
Gain/loss of Cataclysmic Chestguard over the 264 T10 BP:
If you need to build a raw avoidance set the T10 might be a good thing to pick up, but as far as both EHP and threat are concerned, the badge chest is the clear winner.
