I need advice on whether its worth pursuing the time to get the Seal of Pantheon from HOL reg. I have been unsucessful in getting this to drop so far and am a little tired of running this instance over and over.
I currently have the trinket bought with heroic emblems, Valor Medal of the First War, which provides dodge rating.
The reason i ask this question is i am currently running 10-man Naxx content and as i get Tier 7 items i am having difficulty keeping my defense at 540 without playing around with gems and rings. When i had blues, my defense was 545-550, but as i have replaced them with Tier 7, it takes a lot of configuring to keep my defense at the 540 minimum for raiding.
You could try farming out the pants from H VH, I believe they have 86 Defense. You could also switch your meta out for the 21Def/+5%SBV, its not ideal, but you can use it as a stopgap measure. If you have to throw a couple +def gems in to tide you over. On my server yellow and blue gems are super cheap, so its an easy enough way to close the gap on gear during a transitional phase.
