    Badge Gear vs S3/Other gear

    I was looking at the DPS plate badge gear, and was wondering if these two pieces with lots of armor pen

    Eternium Rage-shackles - Items - World of Warcraft
    and
    Pauldrons of Gruesome Fate - Items - World of Warcraft

    would beat out

    Bladespire Warbands - Items - World of Warcraft w/ 4str 4crit gem and 5str 4stamgem?
    and
    Vengeful Gladiator's Plate Shoulders - Items - World of Warcraft w/ 8 str gem and 4str 4crit gem?

    for Arms PvE DPS. The bottom line is..

    bracers
    24 crit rating (Bladespire Wristbands)
    vs
    150 armor pen (Eternium Rage Shackles)

    shoulders
    6 str 38 crit rating (Vengeful Gladiator's Plate Shoulders)
    vs
    23 hit 154 armor pen (Pauldrons of Gruesome Fate)

    I would hit around 948 armor pen with the badge pieces, when the armorer is done building on my server (for the Angelista's Revenge, which I'm getting for sure)


    I was also reading that hitting 142 hit is very crucial for raid DPS - yet the correct way to socket was still to use 4str/4crit and 8str gems?


    In addition, how much better would the axe from badges be, over my s3 mace? I'd get 5 more crit, more expertise, and a faster weapon with about the same DPS.
