Correct me if i am wrong but is pure mitigation not better than expertise? Since we are indeed pallys and do not require our hits to be our only threat builder. This is why i don't understand people who pick the ancient phalanx bracer's over VR bracer's, which offer a ton more mitigation. the only sensible reason i can come up with to pick them is because of their stamina.

thx for responding. i understand the randomness of mitigation but for the stamina upgrade its not that much more what 80hp or more def more block and dodge which is nice. granted sometimes its just easier for healers to heal through damage and not waste mana on a strait up over heal but you can tell me to try to max your mitigation is a bad thing? If i were healing i d rather have more of a chance for the tank to take less damage than more.

He meant that the badge reward (stamina) is easy to get, while the Loot Reaver ones (avoidance) rely on drops, which may or may not come. People like reliable rewards for effort , and thus, will grab the badge rewards, since they are guaranteed them.

ok gotcha :P

i only say that because i am going to hold out for VR ones while all other tanks don't even want them at all so I am next in line for them. but the randomness of their drop is huge I have been doing VR since last June and i have only seen them drop once. damn that fel steel war helm dropping every time if not warp spring coil!

er, there's no such thing as loot council. only favorites council.

In theory, if there were a completely uncorruptable loot council, headed by a person so selfless that Jesus blushes, it would be a nice idea. But I've NEVER seen it happen.

hence, ftl.

I've seen a good loot council work before. Was it a one off? Maybe, but it was a pretty nice one off.

Kara Bracers = AoE set
VR Bracers = Avoidance Set
Badge Bracers = Single-target Threat Set

I myself want all 3. :D
