Thread: 2 piece tier 10 set bonus or Stam trinket

  1. #1

    2 piece tier 10 set bonus or Stam trinket

    I just came back to wow after a year off, and I have burned through all the triumph badge gear already. I got a lucky drop in VoA 25 for my tank gloves and I am wondering if I should buy my shoulders for the 2 piece bonus or that really pretty stam trinket.

    For shoulders I can pick up either the ilvl 245 triumph badge or 232 set shoulders instead.

    As for trinkets I have Glyph of Indomitability, the Furnace Stone (ulduar 10), and the Blackheart.

    HP 35k+
    AC 28k without armor trinket.

    Any help is appreciated.

    I say go for the stamina trinket. You're gonna keep on getting more and more badges each week so eventually you'll get the 2 piece.

    i would say shoulders for 2pc. you have decent trinkets right now with the glyph on indom and black heart while you have 219 shoulders and no set bonus from any tier.

    I can get the ilvl 245 shoulders right now. I was waiting to purchase shoulders until I made the decision. Would you still make the same choice?

    I didn't even think about the belt. I have a 219 belt with no hopes of upgrades until ICC.

    Get 245 Shoulders, then grab the Chain belt (bonus armror NOM NOM NOM?), the 2 piece is all threat and really that shouldn't be a problem.

    The BS belt is quite good, although it's only 226 but it's a lot better than any 219 belts.

    In terms of pure upgrades, CSK > Shoulders unless you need the threat from the 2pc, but bonebreaker from Morrowgar 10 or Facelifter from Putricide 10 will do more. As will Glyph of Devastate instead of Cleave/Blocking. Plenty of options for increasing threat without gearing for threat over survivaiblity.

    Get Pillars. If you still don't have a boot upgrade at that point then boots of Kingly Upheval. Hopefully by then the 251 wrists have dropped from Deathbringer, if not the crafted 245 wrists.

    In terms of next frost purchases, I'm at odds with most on the site, but if you're gaining 40+ frosties a weeks (14 from daily randoms, 4 from VoA 10/25, 5 from weekly, and 18 at least from 4/12 + Free badge in ICC at 10/25) I'd go with:
    Cataclysmic
    CSK
    Tier- Shoulders
    Cloak
    Tier - Head
    Tier - Chest, throw it in the bank until you can upgrade it to the 264 level and then break it out for certain fights.

    The cloak is BiS, but with your bonus armor holiday cloak, you're sitting pretty good right now.

    Also, run Ony10/25 for a chance at the ring drop to replace Relentless.

    ****

    Enchants are suboptimal. Not bad, but not as good as they could be.

    Shoulder = PvP enchants (10k honor, stormwind) - only enchants with Stamina, and the Res reduces your critability so you can dip slightly under 540.

    Back = +225 armor

    Chest = +275 HP > +10 stats

    Hands = Jealous :-(

    You're well over the Defense Minimum of 540, so swap your +Def for +sta on your shield. You may need to re-evaluate this after some of the defenseless upgrades (Pillars, Crafted 264 boots).
