    Helm + Shoulders +
    Gloves (now have the armor of Gauntlets of the Kraken) +
    Chest (now has the armor of Cataclysmic Chestguard) +
    Pillars of Might =
    Same armor with 4 piece bonus.

    Now I just need the GMs to refund my badges.

    Festergut is the only fight where you might be able to argue EH > Balance.

    Still wipes in ICC for now comes from mistakes, and not single ones of them, not a few ones either, but mistakes that through out a fight is repeated over and over again...
    Or for fights where your DPS/Healers simply does not have the throughput... I have YET to see a fight where the tanks choice in spec or gear makes the difference...

    On the other side, Healers can currently be very pressured in some fights on mana, that actually talks against any EH stacking ideas and towards TDR...
    Armor is still my very favorite stat but full stamina stacking is "meh-lol"... And please don't put Blood out there as the "King DK tank" spec, it is not.

    This may change ones we hit the Heroics again, or it may not, time will tell...

    What about armor Bonus, if i remember correctly as well, armor bonus is not put into our +60% equation, so how would those effect UB?...

    From my post before you asked:
    "as of next Tue you can get the 4 pc bonus without sacrificing any bonus armor. The set gloves and chest will now have bonus armor and there are no shoulders or helms with bonus armor. Voila, 4 pc set bonus."

    The tier gloves and chest are getting bonus armor. Once you get a token (assuming you get into ICC25, not everyone will I suppose) the gloves and chest of the set will now match the non-tier pieces at 264 level, and the 251 level stuff will be just shy, but we're talking 100-300 armor difference, which is enough to keep it an upgrade.

    And as I said, there are no Helms or Shoulders with bonus armor, so you can get 4 tier pieces without sacrificing the bonus armor. Thank you Blizz for the option.

    This has been beaten to death from every possible angle. However there are a lot of situations thus far where UA is simply not as effective as VB, and it really isn't a discussion.
