I just received the shield from 25m ToC HM. I think I should go with the crystal plated for the stam but I could be wrong. But is block value worth it?

Thanks

Next time, link the items as well.
Crystal Plated Vanguard (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=46964)
Neverending Winter (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=50794)

Crystal Plated Vanguard is the better shield, use it.

Crystal Plated Vanguard HC --> Icecrown Glacial Wall --> Neverending Winter HC---> Icecrown Glacial Wall HC

Where would you rank Bulwark of the Royal Guard (heroic) (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47978) from TotGC 10 in that list?

Guess I'm really looking at comparing Royal Guard to Neverending Winter and extending your priority list lower. I'm still torn about those two to be honest.

Do not agree with the rating, both [Icecrown Glacial Wall] (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=50065) and [Neverending Winter] (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=51909) are better than [Crystal Plated Vanguard] (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=46964), comparison to all four:

But if I read the OP right, he's comparing *non-heroic* neverending winter with heroic crystal vanguard.

Neverending Winter Normal ---> Crystal Plated Vanguard HC --> Icecrown Glacial Wall Normal --> Neverending Winter HC---> Icecrown Glacial Wall HC

Also worth noting that the crystal vanguard hc to glacial wall normal upgrade is really small, almost sidegrade. Except perhaps in the fashion ranks ;)

Thanks guys for the posts.

Sorry for the mishap, I was kind of in a hurry last time but I'll be sure next time to link everything.

Thanks again!
