    Ring help in ICC 25

    Hello all,

    I got this ring last night:

    Harbinger's Bone Band
    Binds when equipped
    Unique-Equipped
    Finger
    +69 Strength
    +124 Stamina
    Yellow Socket
    Socket Bonus: +6 Stamina
    Equip: Increases defense rating by 60 (12.2 @ L80).
    Equip: Increases your dodge rating by 60 (1.52% @ L80).
    Equip: Improves hit rating by 38 (1.16% @ L80).

    Used it to replace:

    Band of the Twin Val'kyr
    Heroic
    Binds when picked up
    Unique-Equipped
    Finger
    532 Armor
    +64 Strength
    +114 Stamina
    Blue Socket
    Socket Bonus: +6 Stamina
    Equip: Increases defense rating by 35 (7.12 @ L80).
    Equip: Increases your dodge rating by 39 (0.99% @ L80).


    Assuming 30 stam in both sockets,

    I lose

    532 armor

    I gain

    0.76% avoidance

    0.75 or so Hit (bringing me up to 7.5% hit)

    4 Stamina :P

    Soooo, which is the better choice?

    I know that armor is usually better, but the hit...well, I don't want to miss on that phase 2 LK taunt, and it seems like gaining that much avoidance has to be worth something.

    Any insights are appriciated. Thanks

    H-Band of the Twin Valks is second BiS right now. First BiS is that Devium's Ring or whatever it's called. 532 armor is the EH equivalent of just under 50 stamina, so really you're losing a TON of EH for some very marginal gains, put the band of the twin valks back on and ignore the fact that it's only ilevel 245, it's an amazing ring.

    I actually got Devium's just recently... Straight upgrade from the clutch of fortification plus a socket... juicy. The armor does make a huge diffence on 90% of the fights.

    H band of twin Valks wins this one hands down as Agg said.
