What to replace?

Postby etherboy » Tue Dec 02, 2008 5:18 pm

What Emblem gear is worthwhile given what I have currently (see sig)

Still working on Kirin Tor gloves...

Still doing my dailies for Hodir rep...

With 540+ defense easily attainable with a mix of gear I have available should I start stacking avoidance for blockcapping?

Should I enchant my shield and just wait for a Skull of Ruin? (Emblem shield seems fairly paltry upgrade)...

Should I enchant my cloak and wait for the Valor badge one?

Doing Naxx [10] on Sundays... and farming VoA and Sartharion [10] and [25] each week...

Armory in sig...

Ignore the posts below this, I used my old topic...

Durable Nerubhide Cape
Always a good cloak to get and you can get for a decent price and save your EoV for your T7 gear

What I dont like about Durable Nerubhide Cape is the fact that it doesnt have defense.

Getting 540+ seems easy with the blue craftables (they are really loaded with defense) but as soon as you start replacing your shit with naxx items you will notice that you will fall down on defense again often having to enchant or gem for defense to stay crit capped.

Yep... I'm gonna stick with the WA one til I can get the 25 Valor cloak...

edit: also the Nerubhide cloak wastes some itemisation on expertise (which I've never been a fan of)...

- ofcourse you should be stacking avoidance, it's hot


Should I enchant my shield and just wait for a Skull of Ruin? (Emblem shield seems fairly paltry upgrade)...
- 22 defense is a cheap enchant, why wait?

- old enchant (12 def), or new cheap 22 agility. don't bother with the 16 def until you upgrade it

Also consider 12 defense on bracers (old enchant), helps to free up other slots / gem-slots for whatever you fancy.

It's late, but I don't mean to sound rude. Anyway, your total health is fine, a little bit more armor would help, but after that, there's nothing else to stack but avoidance, is there? :)

Some specific upgrades from my gear:

Belt: Skadi's Iron Belt -> Waistguard of Living Iron?
Shield: Bulwark of the Noble Protector -> Titansteel Shieldwall or Crygil's Discarded Plate Panel?
Boots: Sabatons of Draconic Vigor -> Tempered Titansteel Treads?

These would seem the ideal (and non-drop) upgrades for me right now...
