Gear suggestions 3.0?

Postby etherboy » Sat Oct 11, 2008 11:48 pm

Well I was planning to drop my beloved Pally in Wrath, but I've had a change of heart... now I'm desperately trying to adjust my gear (I always min/max as best I can)...

Just wondering what upgrades/sidegrades would make the biggest difference come Tuesday...

I have a Regal Protectorate in the bank, along with a Breeching Comet and a (The) Decapitator...

I foolishly vendored my Shermanar Great-Ring...

Armory in sig

Thanks :)

Get more defense. You are sitting at 294 and will drop to at least 274 if not lower. Where to get that defense you ask? Well get +12 defense to your bracers, the +12 defense meta, a different shield (the S2 shield is a really nice pve shield and the resilence can be of use in your case), Begging a GM to restore your Shade ring or get another ring with defense in place of the badge one (so sad to part with it I know), a defense trinket (the pocket watch loses a lot of it's appeal now that DR will severly cut back the effect of it on use), a tank weapon if you can find a good one (I suggest ZJ's ax), and gems as a last ditch effort.

294 Defense?! Or do you mean 494?

If I'm only at 294 I really am in trouble :(

Yep, Majiben managed to quite stunningly mistake the 4 key for a 2 key twice. Both times in the same place. But yea, you'll need to scare up 6 Defense skill or about 14 Defense Rating from somewhere.

Of course if you're in Hyjal, just try and grab The Unbreakable Will.

Hyjal has been a pug only thing for me... and we've only ever made it to Anetheron...

I was ridiculously lucky to get the Hammer...

Might have to grind out a S2 sword...

According to PsiVen's chart, the Breeching Comet is fairly close to S2 sword in tps. Given it's additional tanking stats, I think it's probably preferable overall. I've decided to save my honour for level 80.

What is a good gem choice for the Breeching Comet...

I've pretty much decided same as you that I will save honor instead... or spend it towards PvP healing gear as I was earlier...

edit: Well I look at the charts and it seems the fairy floss might live another day... Breeching Comet is worse...

However should I bother Potency enchanting my Hammer?
