I waited for the 100 badge chest. It's a huge upgrade over whatever you might be having (you are logged in dps gear atm, but im guessing aldor revered chest). Also, since you are starting kara, theres bracers from attumen, belt from moroes and gloves from maiden. It would be a bit of a bummer to get a shiny new belt only to have one drop from moroes later in the evening. I realize that moroes belt isn't all the rage, but its still a solid upgrade when starting out in kara.
