The Skull of Ruin seems to beat the Wall of Terror in terms of DPS.
But what about the Royal Crest of Lordaeron or Barricade of Eternity with hit/expertise?


Barricade of Eternity wins because it has more BV and str.

As far as The Skull of Ruin versus Wall of Terror It's a matter of which increases dps more, 13 str or 10 BV. My guess is 13 str will eek out a win.


The Barricade has less Str than both toher options and less BV then the Skull. I don't get what you're saying. °_°

They asked "between A&B which wins? Also between C & D which wins?"

Answer was D beats C hands down but A&B are closer with A just barely winning.

I actually meant "how do C&D compare to A/B?"

I actually play with this some, even though I usually maintank, because I like big numbers, and talking trash to our dps that fall below me in dps on boss fights =P.

In my full tank kit, which can be viewed at http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Destromath&n=Scottzirra (if my fishing pole and goggles are on, it of course is not my standard gear) and full raid buffed, I push 2.2-2.4k dps on boss fights if I tank. I definitely clear 2k dps on most boss fights.

My current goal is to stack as much BV as i can which i estimate to be ~250BV using:
http://www.wowhead.com/?item=42987 which works out to ~190 constant str, or ~400 ap, ~100BV
There are several other upgrades that I have on a wish list, but the total gain from my gear to there is around 250BV.

The only slots left without BV on them are 1 trinket, and the shoulders.

Obviously the http://www.wowhead.com/?item=40684 would be good, but http://www.wowhead.com/?item=37872 could also be good.

Obviously some ret shoulders would fill the set out. However, until I drop the gear I can only speculate on what I suppose would be ideal.
