Getting ready for ZA / general upgrades
first off, my armory link:
As you can see, I do some Kara (roughly every other week) and get my gear from heroics. I've had terrible luck with tank drops in Kara, but that's life I guess.
I asked a warrior tank of the guild I do Kara with (they do MH and BT usually) whether I was ZA ready, and he told me I wasn't quite there yet.
He suggested getting replacements for my shoulders, boots and ring.
Shoulders are [item]Gladiator's Plate Shoulders[/item], he suggested [item]Fanblade Pauldrons[/item] as a replacement. Personally, I don't really see it. Trading 23 Sta and 287 AC for 1.65% avoidance doesn't sound like that big an upgrade to me.
Boots are [item]Ironstriders of Urgency[/item] socketed with 2x12 Sta, which replaced my [item]Flesh Beast's Metal Greaves[/item] in lieu of a [item]Battlescar Boots[/item] drop. I figure my next upgrade would be [item]Jungle Stompers[/item], but I'd need to be ZA ready to get those, obviously.
Ring is [item]Garona's Signet Ring[/item]. No luck with Shermanar. I have [item]Iron Bank of the Unbreakable[/item], but it's not a huge EH upgrade either.
So what can I get to be ZA ready before 2.4? I don't want to upgrade my chest, legs and belt, as I have upgrades planned for them already (arena and 2.4 badge loot, respectively), and I don't want to spend a single badge before 2.4..
Thanks in advance for any help.
