View Full Version : Druid Knightbane Carapace vs Runetotem's Rainments of Triumph

06-22-2010, 05:24 AM
I'm pitting the two 245 chests against each other. In my attempt to catch up with the rest of the WoW players, I did a GDKP run last night of ToC25 and made out with 3 trophys and a new cloak (Pride of the Demon Lord). Anyway, I didn't know if I should drop the cash on a new chest. Basic statwise, I think the tier piece won out, but when gemmed and enchanted with +30 stam gems and +10 stats, the Knightbane Carapace won out. But the only thing I'm adding is stam, I'm not adding more agility. So I was wondering what I should do, and how I should gem/enchant it? I was going to take a look today to see if I could get a Carapace cheap, save me some badges and trophy, but at the same right I'm not looking to cheap myself out and do the wrong thing.

Also, same deal with my helm, I didnt know when and what to gem for other than agility but I didnt know how much. So I used my head, the amount of gain of the agi was a bit less than the stam, and it wasn't worth it in my opinion.

And here's the comparison I did: http://www.wowhead.com/compare?items=47600.0.3832.0.40119.40119.40119;481 96.0.3832.0.40119.40119&weights=Druid%20-%20Feral%20Combat%20(Tank);21:22:45:42:117:20:41:1 19:103:77:97:96;100:75:65:60:16:10:10:8:5:4:4:3

Not speaking as a Druid I'd say the Knightbane has it.

How do I gem/socket it?

stam is your friend

Stam, yes. Also those chests should be pretty cheap by now.

I checked last night, the cheapest I saw was 1800. Still a bit pricy, am hoping to see more today. Otherwise I'll just pick it up. Plus this ring, I don't expect it to be cheap but I plan on watching the AH for a cheap(er) one:

The Knightbane is better, but not so much that if you have the T9 245 chest you should feel compelled to go buy it. I'd save your money for getting the frost crafted legs or boots instead.
