Faceplate of the Impenetrable
My block value drops to below 800 with the change, which is unfortunate. Besides the obvious angst of replacing an Illidan drop with a heroic blue. ;x
More health, armor, dodge, defense and str (which adds to BV a little but now you have more AP). It's a tossup. I understand your pain, I just replaced my T6 chest with the one from Old Kingdom in order to get both more defense and some expertise...The socket bonus is a little questionable, but with a stamina gem that increases the defense value even more if you are striving for 540.
I was uncrittable right at 80, due to getting a Seal of the Pantheon in the mid-70s.
It's a question of nerfing my SBV even more for a smallish EH gain. I'm worried it's not as smallish as it seems, though, due to my bias. ;x
Bottom line is it's only prplz, you aren't nerfing your block value THAT much, and Tier 7 is hotter :P
ill putting a shield spike on illidans shield.. just to hang onto it a little longer :(
/agree with Vene
One good thing is that blues are cheaper to repair!!
HBombs - I have a spike on my Bulwark now. that thing should of had that as an equip function anywise. :)
Using the blue, haven't looked back. 26000 unbuffed HP has a way of making you stop worrying and love the blues.
I swapped mine for ground tremor helm, 26k hp unbuffed as well, loving the blues lol
