Postby Fënrir » Wed Oct 20, 2010 5:49 pm

Ok so my main tank has put allot of emphsis about useing armor trinkets and i want to know what fights in icc 25 heroic are better suited to the stam trinkets or the armor trinkets.

http://www.wowarmory.com/character-shee ... %C3%ABnrir (armory link)

Trink choices -
[Sindragosa's Flawless Fang](reg)+228 stam - Use: Increases resistance to Arcane, Fire, Frost, Nature, and Shadow spells by 239 for 10 sec. (1 Min Cooldown)
[Corroded Skeleton Key] +228 stam - Use: Absorbs 6400 damage. Lasts 10 sec. (2 Min Cooldown)
[Petrified Twilight Scale] +2282 armor - Equip: Melee attacks which reduce you below 35% health cause you to gain 733 dodge rating for 10 sec. Cannot occur more than once every 45 sec.
[Unidentifiable Organ] +1890 armor - Equip: Each time you are struck by a melee attack, you have a 60% chance to gain 24 stamina for the next 10 sec, stacking up to 10 times.

Thanks allot

I was under the impression that armour trinkets still had armour on them but just not displaying. So when you equip them you can see your armour go up on your character sheet.

Or that was happening last week just after patch 4.0 first arrived.

No idea if still the case with so many hotfixes going on.

Armor trinkets have been fine as of last week.

They still work just fine, giving you armor. However, as far as I know, in 4.0 they're no longer optimal given the reworking that armor received, and that stam trinkets are now more EH for just about every situation.

Higher iLevel items are generally better (as is probably intended, but awfully boring). Armor is still good, but since heroic Organ is 264, 277 CTC is arguably better. And so on.

Also more stam -> more Vengeance, which is also pretty stupid, but there you go. (By the time Vengeance is stacked you should already have a monstrous threat lead, so the higher ceiling is just +dps. I personally still weight armor's EH over +threat, but YMMV)

CTC is pretty useless unless you are below the block cap for any fight where survivability matters. We're not in cata yet, bosses still hit pretty hard.

I wouldnt be suprised if they did "nerf" the Halion trinket so that it was actually worse than an item with 90 ilvls more.
But then again both of them are a bit crap, and dont see any reason going armor trinkets in cata.
Otherwise people would just go Halion HC for tanking trinket, instead of Cata content, so something is definately changing in some way.
