Raij's post is very good found here -> http://www.tankspot.com/forums/f97/60450-prioritizing-what-get-first-icc-rough-guide.html
I also wrote a guide about T10 that includes a lot of emblem priority stuff found here -> http://www.tankspot.com/forums/f97/59680-t10-set-bonuses-worth.html
Also Squirrelnut has an ICC prot gearing guide found here -> http://www.tankspot.com/forums/f97/59655-icecrown-citadel-prot-gear-list.html

Love how most gear guides assume you will be able to get tokens for gear.

I dont see the point you are trying to make, if you can no get the tokens you can still use ilvl 251 items to get the same set bonuses. If you can not get tokens means you dont have access to ICC 10H or ICC 25 which means the max ilvl gear you will be wearing is ilvl 251 anyways.

FYI in ICC you need to buy the lower tier of gear anyways as the token will just let you upgrade the same piece to a higher ilvl and not an entirely new piece.

Someone did the hard work of putting togther the list so I, you or lot of other people dont have to go and look up loot tables and emblem gear for hours. I think this work should be appreciated rather than being critiqued upon for something you dont have access to.

Oh I appreciate the work that people do, when the guide is understandable or actually works.
Just I have seen a lot of guides where I swear the person just looked for the highest ilevel for a spec and lists that as the item to get, regardless of how realistic it is for someone to get or how badly itemized the item is.

That is why I did the math, to show what was itemized best. Don't see how your post is relative to any of what Agg linked.

The reason I picked the ilevel264 stuff was to show that even at 264, offpieces were better than T10 bonuses. Raij's guide is for 10M only and thus calculates with 251 gear, thus you don't need tokens. So.... I don't really see where you're going with this.

Veneratio's list is also written without tokens in mind:


Wait… I’m getting the Tier pieces last!? Yes, they are lower item level than the other emblem pieces.
What if I’ve got a token to upgrade them? Still take them last.
