    Faceplate of the Impenetrable vs. Arcane-Shielded

    Difficult decision.

    Faceplate of the Impenetrable

    Arcane-Shielded Helm

    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

    Arcane-Shielded Helm is definitely the superior helm, but there's nothing wrong with holding onto the Faceplate for the time being for a Block Value set

    Using the blue, haven't looked back. 26000 unbuffed HP has a way of making you stop worrying and love the blues.
