What to spend my frost on...

Postby Perrigrin » Mon Mar 29, 2010 5:35 am

I realize that I might not be giving enough information for actually getting some help - But wanted to ask for pointers.

I am logged on in ret spec, so can't show my gear - but I wear toc25/icc10 and triumph badge gear (with some ulduar pieces, like the boe shield) - I have crap trinkets (high stamina ones from non raid - got a few others to swap in, but then they have no stamina).

I am raiding 25 man as ret, rarely if ever tank in those raids - so wont be spending dkp on prot loot just yet.

However, with frost badges I'm now "done" with ret gear, and will start spending on prot - got around 200 sitting ready to be spent.

My question then is, where are my stronger options to go? I assume since I wont be getting tookens for prot gear for a looooong time, I shouldnt worry about the t9 pieces?

At the 264 ilevel and below the offset pieces are generally superior to the tier pieces (all the badge armor ones), If you worry about threat you can get Head/Shoulders of Tier. I wouldn't worry much about that though.

Generally get all the Offset Badge Armor pieces (Belt/Chest/Gloves/Cloak) and crafted legs, by then you might have 2 tier tokens and can get tier shoulders/head. Tier Chest/Gloves become interesting really only with 277 tokens or if you want 4 set.

Of the offset badge armor, replace whatever weakest item you currently have first.

Forgot about Trinket, it's nice. Depends on your current trinket when you'll get it, I'd get it well before Tier pieces. Libram is probably the last item you need since the Triumph Ret/Prot librams are both really useful, and the Prot one is only very slightly worse.

This. All the offset gear, crafted legs and boots, and the tier head and shoulders. Done.

Or.. take those EoF, buy Saronites and sell them before the price drops more.
