View Full Version : DPS Retri Paladin T8 2pc bonus

12-17-2009, 02:26 AM
I don't play a paladin. I have a guildie who still wears T8.5 chest and head although he has had many TotGC 10 and TotC 25 upgrades available to him not to mention T9.232. Looking at logs his Hammer of Wrath and Excorsism does 10% of his damage (14% on undead) which makes me wonder if the 10% damage increase to these abilities really makes it worth passing on gear that's a tier higher.

So my question is, how long should a retri paladin keep the T8 2 piece bonus?

I think if he's looking at well-itemized 232 gear (read: no armor pen, wouldn't put him way over the hit and expertise caps) he may have a point. If he's looking at well-itemized 245 gear and passing on it, he's crazy. 10% on two abilities is not enough to bother gimping yourself.

All in all, set bonuses are meant to be exactly that - bonuses. Some of them are nice, some are pathetically weak, but none of them are worth gimping your other stats to obtain.
