    Torn on Badge Gear - Don't see any major upgrades

    Armory Link

    That is my Stamina set, I have have a Threat and a Avoidance set.

    Along with what you see I have Waistguard of the Risen Knight and Tattered Castle Drape.

    We are entering into Naxx, it'll be a while before I see Gluth or Four Horsemen.
    We are killing Sarth though, so gloves I've got a good shot at.

    So, looking at badge options I see:
    Chained Gorget (its an upgrade, but how much?)
    Living Iron - I think we might do instructor and since I have the other two, is it really worth it?
    Shield - Not a huge upgrade, I'm also running HCoS

    Valor Medal of the First War - Nice, can replace my compass. Maybe I go for this?

    Should I go for the T7 Chest token? Any other recommendations?

    get them all, i have everything for both fury and prot spec sets and like 100 badges .. literally ....

    i need more valor badges tho to complete my t7.5 fury set

    oh to elaborate, don't be one of those people who are afraid to get the best of what they can just because you *might* get a upgrade *at some point*

    get the best gems, enchants and gear you can atm.

    You'll see I have the Bracers of the Dalaran Parapets. I'm not opposed to spending gold when needed, or badges. However I'm just trying to be smart in my decisions. I don't have badges by the hundreds and I don't get to do a lot of heroics. I'm avoiding 2 different gear sets (Fury/Prot) this time around as it got to be such a pain in TBC.

    I appreciate the input however.

    I decided to get the Crygill's Shield. I did up a comparison on WoWhead and found that Crygill's was the same as Royal Crest +33 Dodge Rating (little lower in defense) I haven't had problems staying above the defense minimum, so I went with it.

    Pick up the belt, it's pretty good (although running heroic AN for the belt drop there is a good idea too).

    I would say skip the neck for now since you have the JC-crafted one.

    Get your T7 chest and hands ASAP for 2-set bonus.

    The Valor trinket is pretty good too for an avoidance set.

    I'd say go for the belt first.
    It's what I still run with, upgrade from Instructor.

    Commendation is still a good trinket, heaps of HP + the >35% proc is very nice

    If you can, also get chest + hands before naxx. Made it so much easier for me.
