277 avoidance gear vs 264 armor gear

Postby Cocolicious » Wed Feb 24, 2010 12:07 pm

Is it worth it to drop 277 gear to use 264 gear that is higher EH? I usually prefer to go for max item points with a preference to stam up to 1.6 ratio but is avoidance so diminished at high gear levels that its not worth it anymore? I'm interested about hear opinions on...

For a lot of fights, the high armor pieces are better. It hurts I know, but stick with them.

I used my Naxx cloak until I replaced it (finally) in ToC. Nothing that dropped in Ulduar could match the armor. (I wasn't tank for a few magic-intesive Ulduar fights; I mostly tanked the brute heavy hitters.)

I'm doing the same with my iLvl 245 rings, as replacements I can attain so far just aren't as good.
