    Crafted Mirrored Boots vs. Heroic Cracked Obsidium Stompers

    I'm curious as to which one of these is truly better, or if it depends more on if there are certain stats you're looking for.



    Mirrored Boots
    454 Stamina
    197 Mastery
    187 Parry

    Heroic: Cracked Obsidian Stompers
    513 Stamina
    322 Dodge
    173 Expertise

    Crafted in all situations bar farm maybe.

    That's what I figured; after reforging it came down to giving up 60 some mit/avoid stats for like 60 stam from the heroic boots.

    Always nice to hear someone else confirm though.

    I can only make the heroic stompers work for my warrior in an unhittable setup with BiS gear (including mirror) so i'll end up using the crafted ones for a very long time. Stompers aren't bad, don't get me wrong: You gain 89 stamina and exchange some avoidance for mastery rating while also getting about 100 expertise for free - who wouldn't take that?

    It's 332 dodge + 89 mastery versus 217 mastery + 207 parry (including gems).

    Also: if you're not close to (or worried about) CTC they are very decent, eg for 25m stamina sponges.

    After hitting block cap CTC/stamina trade off is worse for Obsidian Stompers than for gems or many other items. They still lose to crafted.
