Keep 4 piece or go full sunwell gear

Postby Hexzon » Thu Oct 09, 2008 3:39 am

With the patch the threat % from conc is alot lower so should keep 4 piece or go all sunwell gear?

I already drop 4pc for full Sunwell gear unless I'm really worried about threat. Usually it's the chest that I swap out, YMMV.

Hyjal = 4-piece.

Anything else, not so much.

Yay for having 6 pieces of T6 though.

Currently on live i'd not lose the 10% cons damage since my DPS likes to ride my ass quite closely.

However, i'd happily lose it in 3.0... too bad i don't have better pieces for boot-wrist-belt-chest :)

I hate you for having the Sunwell chest/shoulders.

I tend to keep 4 piece threw belt/bracers/boots and shoulders.
The sunwell shoulders never really impressed me >.<

It's true, I have a dirty love affair with block value. I'm terribly conflicted about the patch, on one hand I gain a ton of SBV from strength, but on the other, my favorite meta is getting nerfed. NOOOOOOoooooooooooo

Knaughty, if it's any consolation my 3.0 weapon is from ZA ;)

At least I have a Tempest of Chaos and a The Brutalizer

What on earth are you stuck with? Cleaver of the Unforgiving?

We're still farming Twins, and if we don't get M'uru this Sunday, post-patch he should be trivial, so I have a slight chance of shoulder/chest in the next 2-3 weeks.

^ this.

I am confused... there's no sexy mace out of ZA.... unless you're going ret? Oo

(He'd want a mace since he's a dwafz0r... I dunno)

Yeah, I picked it up last night.

There are no sexy tanking maces anywhere as far as I can tell, we've had decent luck with DELs though so hopefully I can snag one soon.

The cleaver?

At this point using a mitigation weapon is kinda... outdated, isn't it? I mean, I know warriors still carry around their UBW and Brutalizers, but... eh.

I guess I always felt like the Mace spec = win. (Should prolly QQ about going back to SSC :/)

EDIT: Dragonscale Encrusted v S3(S4 if you're lucky enough to know a sekc warlock or 2345 or a good warrior turtle) is a trade off of some haste/4DPS v hit/crit/ArP

EDITEDIT I should clarify. I always felt like if one ever considers DELB the top of PvE tanking weapons, then S3/S4 racials would be stronger, no?

Yeah, I'm gonna find someone to do some arenas with for a quick 1800. PvE ret gear ftw.

Mace racial isn't worth anything if the weapon's threat is still worse with it. But it makes the S3/4 weapons /win.

To be fair, it's hardly "sexy".
