    T7.5 Legs vs Dragon Brood

    Basically, I came down to the following stuff:

    Using +8 expertise/hit and +8 exp/+12 sta gems

    23STR, 0,17% Pure Avoidance, 16 Expertise
    Vs
    42 hit, 13 STA

    I took into consideration the +9 dodge rating, avoidance from defense, and (if you're wondering why 42 and not 50), I'm using a hit gem, as mentioned (50-8 = 42)

    ATM I'm at 4.70% Hit - 20.64% dodge - 17.18% parry

    Oh well, 5:20 am, this has been bothering me for a few hours already, hope you can help me.

    Regards,
    Tai

    PS: Major edit: I already have set bonus without legs (chest + gloves) -Thanks Nii-

    If you need the hit go brood.
    Otherwise with gems I THINK the T7.5 would be better, especially if its for a set bonus

    If you're not exp softcapped, 16 expertise is roughly equivalent to 32 hit. Which might make your comparison a little easier. Or not.

    They're really close, I'll agree with Niian and say go with T7.5 unless you need the hit.

    I ran into this same question tonight, at the time, I wasn't 100% sure what to do, so I passed on the t7.5 for now, I'm sure it'll drop again...

    But what is generally better?

    I'm not hit OR expertise capped yet

    edit: little more info, atm, i have 2piece set bonus, from 7.5 chest and 7 gloves. i have Gauntlets of the Disbobedient atm as well, but havent been using due to wanting to keep my set bonus. Would t7.5 pants and chest, with those gloves be better than my current set up?

    Pretty easy decision really.

    Brood has:
    25 Sta
    19 Defense
    15 Dodge
    50 Hit

    T7b has:
    23 Str
    45 Parry
    2 Sockets (+6 Dodge)

    Trade in one socket for 24 Stam, and another for 16 expertise ~= 32 hit, and the comparison becomes:

    Brood: 1 Stam, 19 defense, 9 dodge, 18 hit
    T7b: 23 STR, 45 Parry

    45 parry >>>> 19 defense + 9 dodge, and 23 STR is a pretty decent amount of threat. Plus, expertise reduces parries; hit doesn't do any such thing.

    T7b all the way. It's 2IS to Sovereignty, no comparison.

    Why not both? I'd run the brood only because the healers I run with get bored healing me as MT save one fight - patchwerk.

    I've gotten used to gear being situational, and as you clear content faster and cleaner, brood wins out because of the importance threat takes over defenses (once defenses is at a suitable level for healers, of course)

    I think this recent DPS-hysteria that has taken over the tanking community is fun and all, but remember: Ulduar is probably going to kick your ass. So grab the best mitigation and avoidance and survivability gear FIRST so you'll be ready for Ulduar if you never get another drop again.

    THEN worry about getting gear to help you clear current content 10% faster.
