    Next Frost emblem item...

    Present gear: http://www.wowarmory.com/character-s...cn=Superfriend

    Pretty sure I'm going to go with the Corroded Skeleton Key, but would like to hear other suggestions if theres anything better I should go for.

    And if Skeleton Key is the best, which trinket should I replace? I guess it would either be
    A: + 228 Stamina, -114 dodge rating (I think that works out to about 1.7% dodge)
    B: + 102 Stamina

    Should be what you buy with frost. Far and away the biggest upgrade for you right now. Only the Gauntlets of the kraken compete but, the belt can be bought now and you can wait and see if the Tier gloves drop from VoA.

    As per your dodge trinket...simply put bank it.

    Get that from triumph badges it isn't Stam per say but the armor reduces incoming damage by a good chunk and should not be overlooked.

    Hmm, why the belt? It doesn't seem to be a huge upgrade.

    And if I were to get the Glyph of Indomitability, which trinket should I replace it with?

    A total gain of 87 Stamina after Gemming and 800 and some change Armor so nearly 1k HP after talents and buffs and 800 armor whoch shaves incoming damage down to make you get hurt less. With CSK you gian a 6400 Damage aborb and ~1.2k HP after buffs simply put the belt is more EH.

    And i said it in the first post you replace the dodge trinket. Never use a slot for a dodge trinket either STAM/STAM for magic fights or ARMOR/STAM for physical fights.

    Yel, what's your goal? 10N clear? 25N Clear? 10/25Hs?

    Can your group afford for you to go for optimal long-term upgrades instead of the best avaialble upgrades?

    There are a lot more factors than just "here's my gear, what's next".

    Vergis is BiS, and I agree, it should be no lower than 2nd on your priority list.

    After that... Tier hands from VoA are great... if they drop. But even at the 264 level they're still inferior to Kraken unless you have the 4pc set and are fighting LDW/Sid/LK. However I've been running VoA for months and have yet to see the 251 or 264 tier warrior gloves drop, it's RNG. I personally will never build a plan around RNG drops, but others factor it in.

    If you're not going to have reliable access to 264 and 277 upgrade tokens, Cataclysmic is a better option for your chest than the tier. There are a lot of variables, so it's hard to respond with a specific set of suggestions.

    Assuming you're in a 10m guild that needs you to max yourself at the moment and have only pug 25 runs available (which, if it is not the case, completely invalidates the suggestions below), I would suggest:

    Vergis Belt
    Kraken Gauntlets
    Cataclysmic/CSK
    T.251 Head

    Then get tier shoulders/chest/hands and throw them in the bank until you get upgrade marks. The first upgrade would go to shoulders so the T.264 shoulders are comparable to your current and you gain the 2pc bonus. Then chest, and finally hands, only because you're still hoping for the T.264 hands to drop from VoA25 and this gives you the most time before you have to spend a token.
