I'm going with the plating on my tank because I also PvP with that same shield, and the Disarm reduction is sometimes useful.
But that's just it Agg, wow is a game of inches... because every little bit doesn't matter on it's own, but it adds up to a lot!
ya, losing 18 stam isn't a huge deal in and of itself, but 18 stam here on your shield, 15 stam there in a gem, 18 stam on your gloves instead of armsman, and bang that's 51 stamina... which is just like upgrading from a t-8 to t10 piece!
That's why wow is a game of inches, 1 inch rarely makes a difference; but 12 1inch mistakes is a foot, and a foot is a difference.
Ya I know I'm preaching to the choir, but that is why I call wow a game of inches.
^ That was what I was getting at. If everyone in a raid has 1 gem wrong, that's 25 wrong gems... Individually it's not a big deal but across a raid XD
