    ***Note: The new list for WotLK can be found here.***


    The stats:
    Effective Health (block value) | Avoidance% | Avoidance+Block%**
    The best in each category will be highlighted.

    Assuming the following base stats before equipping each item:
    13000 health
    14500 armor
    Note: every piece equipped alters the EH of every other piece due to the nature of AC mitigation. However, the values displayed here are fairly reliable relative to each other, regardless of your base stats.

    Assuming the following gems:
    Effective Health: All [item]Solid Star of Elune[/item]s. [item]Powerful Earthstorm Diamond[/item] for Meta sockets.
    Avoidance: [item]Subtle Living Ruby[/item] for red, [item]Thick Dawnstone[/item] for yellow, [item]Enduring Talasite[/item] for blue and [item]Tenacious Earthstorm Diamond[/item] for meta, unless the socket bonus is useless, in which case all will be [item]Thick Dawnstone[/item].

    [item]Seventh Ring of the Tirisfalen[/item]'s avoidance + block seems to be wrong. I think the shield block rating wasn't factored in (3&#37.

    Also since when is [item]Merciless Gladiator's Shield Wall[/item] hard to obtain as a prot warrior? I did my 10 games a week and got it in a couple weeks. Much easier than waiting for Gruul to drop his shield.

    Interesting. You may want to add [item]Pepe's Shroud of Pacification[/item] to the back list. It's from Hyjal.

    Great work here, but what do you think about using different baselines for each tier of gear.

    For instance, 13k hp/14k ac for KZ/T4, 14k hp/16k ac for T5, and 15k hp/18k ac for T6.

    Very helpful list. Thanks.

    I've been considering making a passively crush immune set just for kicks, this will save me a bunch of math.

    Your giving avoidance values to some resilience items. =) which is incorrect.

    Also I know im tired by why has belt of the guardian got a higher EH than the t6 belts which are from sight view better? maybe i missed something it is 2 am..

    I'm assuming 490 defense, and thus basically ignoring resilience. Avoidance comes from:
    -Defense rating
    -Block rating
    -Dodge rating
    -Parry rating
    -Agility.

    [itemBelt of the Guardian[/item] was incorrectly calculated. It's been fixed now. It's the best EH before the t6 instances, but both BT belts exceed it. Thanks for pointing that out

    hummm

    I think it would be far more useful if you assume +12 stamina on all pieces, it would make everything more comparable.

    As your list stands, I can compare all items with respect to their EH values as they all assume +12 stam. Same thing with avoidance as they all assume avoidance gems.

    But, I can't get a 'best balanced' item evaluation, because EH/Avoid assume different gems.

    For example, my problem now, compare 3 boots
    Cra [item]Red Havoc Boots[/item] 2330.42 | 1.6% | 5.31%
    Kar [item]Boots of Elusion[/item] 1864.25 | 3.16% | 3.54%
    Kar [item]Battlescar Boots[/item] 2277.48 | 2.84% | 3.29%

    1) which is top EH: your guide tells me it is red havoc
    2) which is top Avoid: Boots of Elusion
    3) Which is the more balanced item???

    I can't tell. It seems that Battlescar, because it has almost the same EH as Red Havoc, and almost the same avoidance as Elusion. BUT... that is the catch, I can't have both scores at the same time, because your EH number assumes stamina gems and your avoidance number assumes avoidance gems. So, I'm left out in the open, I can't tell the most balanced item.

    (my conclusion: I think I will replace my Battlescar with Red Havoc as my EH boots, and stay with Elusion for more avoidance, might even enchant it differently now)

    Yes, the gems thing could get a bit confuddling. This list doesn't offer a good way to choose the best EH/avoidanced balanced gear when it comes to socketed items unfortunately.

    For EH, the s2 gear is pretty great, comparable to or better than t5-tiered gear. It'd be better than the Warchief's.

    In terms of avoidance, they're not amazing either. I recently upgraded from mine to green Defense-suffixed shoulders for my avoidance set - still waiting on t4

    That's an interesting idea.. but I think the list is more useful as it is, in that each piece of gear can be fairly compared.

    If you had different base stats, most of the listed gear would scale similarly to each other anyway, thus if your stats are remarkably different then the given EH values, while being inaccurate in terms of absolute addition to your EH, they are still just as accurate (or close enough) compared to each other, which is the whole point of the list.

    Added a whole bunch of stuff, including new badge rewards. Still waiting on complete loot tables before I add ZA loot/quest rewards/etc.
