I just leveled up a DK tank and I built my own badge/emblem picker based on the gear I have right now. I am wondering if I am not going for any item set bonuses should I take the T8.5 chest piece over the T9 T8.5 is 58 emblems and T9 is 50.

T9 = http://www.wowhead.com/?item=48558?
T8.5 = http://www.wowhead.com/?item=46118

Here is my armory link: http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Proudmoore&cn=Budapest

Here is my makeshift badge picker in order of biggest upgrades:

sigil: -Sigil of Virulence 25x Emblem of Triumph

trinket: Glyph of Indomitability 35x Emblem of Triumph

feet: -Kyzoc's Ground Stompers - 40xEmblem of Valor

chest: [Koltira's Chestguard of Conquest] 50x Emblem of Triumph

Headplate of the Honorbound (Horde) 75x Emblem of Triumph

shoulder: Shoulderguards of Enduring Order (Horde) 45x Emblem of Triumph

ring: none

hands: -Gauntlets of the Royal Watch 28x Emblem of Conquest

back: -Platinum Mesh Cloak 25xEmblem of Valor

wrist: -Bracers of Dalaran's Parapets -60xEmblem of Valor

waist: -Shieldwarder Girdle - 23xEmblem of Conquest

legs: none

neck: Shard of the Crystal Forest - 19xEmblem of Conquest

weapon: -Greatsword of the Sin'dorei (Horde) - 25x Champion's Seal, Argent Crusade faction Vendors

Thank you for your help.

Neither. Get together some gold and get this: Breastplate of the Whit Knight - http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47592
