**UPDATED**

Hey all. I have a choice between two upgrades. They are: http://www.wowhead.com/item=50978 and http://www.wowhead.com/item=50356

The Gauntlets give me a ton of Armor and some additional Parry at the cost of Dodge, however, my Dodge would still stay relatively close to 27%. The main factor I'm looking at, is, if I throw two 30 stam gems in the gloves, I can a total of 65 stamina whereas upgrading my Brewfest trinket (http://www.wowhead.com/item=49116) to the Corroded Skeleton Key would only give me a 58 stamina upgrade. Considering the Skeleton Key is just a stam stick and the fact the Gloves give more stam and armor I'm partial to the gloves.

The only thing to consider is taking the gloves will break my T9 2piece set bonus and I won't be getting my T10 2 piece bonus for a couple weeks. Which should I take?

I'd probably go with the Trinket +228 stam. It's nice.

If you're aiming to do something cool, do what I did. Get the Trinket. Then get the T10 Gloves and Shoulders for the 2 tier set (Or any other combination you like, I did it like this because they were the cheapest/fastest improvements and I'd rather have a 2pc bonus over a 0 :D) and keep your T9 set bonus until you're forced to give it up :( I feel your pain, I like the 2 second reduction on taunt :(.

Yeah, I've been running VoA10/25 religiously trying to get a piece of T10 or T10.5 so I have an excuse to go buy the shoulders for the 2piece. =P Personally, I don't wanna use badges on the gloves or legs since I have a chance of getting them out of VoA. I figure they can be spent on gear I know I'll be keeping around. I think the trinket will be my next upgrade, a lot of stam and nice GearScore padding too for the elitists (specially over my Brewfest trinket).
