I am currently in the process of getting my 251 t10 bonus pieces . We have started raiding icc 25 and 264 gear is dropping. Is the 251 set bonus good enuff to pass on the higher stat 264 gear or should I start rolling on the 264 drops. Not sure if the spreadsheets take set bonuses into account. I appriciate any thoughts on this.

For balance, the tier pieces are best in slot. There is no item better itemized than the set pieces at T10 and the set bonuses are not something to take lightly. In fact the only reason I'd consider to not run 5/5 of the teir pieces is if hit rating got too high and was being wasted.

Also, WrathCalcs (balance DPS spreadsheet) does take all set bonuses into account except for the T8 four piece bonus which modeling for is extremely difficult. The spreadsheet is attached to Hamlet's EJ guide.

In similar regard, upgrading your set pieces should be a high priority and depending on your loot system you should be going for those tokens first.
