I picked up a http://www.wowhead.com/?item=50185 a few weeks ago, and I can't decide which to wear as my second:

http://www.wowhead.com/?item=49985
or
http://www.wowhead.com/?item=50404

I'm leaning towards the Exalted ring because:


I'm hovering around 2% hit without it.
slightly more static EH, way more with the proc.

Normally I'd choose the exalted ring for the EH right off the bat, but that proc is really abysmal, otherwise it's only 6 stam vs. ~.40% parry. That seems to be enough extra parry to make losing 6 stam "no big deal". I'm not hurting for threat, and if I was, I'd itemize for more expertise before hit.

I'm not interested in this becoming an EH vs. avoidance discussion.

Most of the discussions I've seen on this question seem to conclude that:

Ashen Band of Endless Courage (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=50404) and
Loop of the Twin Val'kyr (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47955)

are the best options until you can replace the 245 with Devium's.

I'm sure Aggathon's EH-Radar will detect this thread soon and you'll get another reply. :)

Keep in mind that it is only the Heroic version of the Val'kyr ring that is better than the clutch/ashen exalted ring combo (disregarding the other 264 ring drops from ICC). It's the armor that makes it so valuable. The ashen exalted ring is pretty much just good for the stam. :D

I'm using Dev's Eternal Cold and Exalted Ashen.

I wouldn't even call the Juggernaut a contender. Less Stam, less Dodge, Less Defense, and no proc (even though its low). Your only gains some STR and Parry, not very compelling IMO.

I have a loop of the twin valks. I read that thread before posting :D I spose I should've included that, but I figured I'd replace the loop with Devium's.


I'm really leaning towards the exalted ashen band, but hit is value-less to me atm, and the proc is really low up-time. I'm still considering the Loop of the twin valks simply due to the armor.

I'll prolly go for the ashen, (plus it ups my lolgearscorelol) thanks for the replies!

Am I really that see through?

i guess so.

Do NOT replace the H-Band of the Twin Valks, it is 2nd BIS only to the devium's ring. Wear Devium's + H band of the Twin Valks. If it is a really magic heavy fight, then maybe switch the band out for the exalted ring, otherwise, stick with the band of the twin valks?

I'm using Dev's Eternal Cold and Exalted Ashen too... Until I get a 277 Jugger then I'm dropping the Exalted Ashen.

You can't have Dev's Eternal Cold and Heroic Dev's Eternal Cold at same time right ???

Interesting! I guess I had that the other way around then. Not that I have Devium's to use, unfortunately...

And yes, Aggathon, you are just that transparent. :D
