As far as rating gear goes I would hold things in a slightly different place.
The Loop of the Twins ring with its socket on Heroic version bests the Signet of the Traitor King on reg 25 man imo.
Im also taking only the shoulder and gloves T9.5 as my only tier. Not because of the 2pc bonus, but rather there are no viable glove upgrades in 3.2.2 other than the tier and the shoulders pretty much put T8.5 and the badge ones to shame.
Helm of the honorbound is a clear winner over the tier IMO, probably even bests the 258 tier as well.
Thank you for the list and the work.
There is something so appealing about backhanding someone across the face with a shield.
