Torn between The Eternium Greathelm and the Tier 4 Helm

Postby Lewyn » Mon Dec 03, 2007 10:28 pm

I've searched for previous topics like this but I still feel torn between the two. Is there a clear cut winner? Full out SSOE> The Tier4? Help me out here. =/

Tier 4 is the clear cut winner. Assuming 3x SSoE in the EG and 18stam/ 4def/6 stam in T4, it's:

17 stam
1 defense


49 armor
28 dodge
24 int
27 +dam

even on straight tanking stats I prefer the T4 helm. As nice as stam is, 17 stam vs. 27 dodge rating isn't a good tradeoff when you compare to other gear slots (e.g. trinkets)...the +dam puts it it even further ahead.

T4 hat and T4 shoulders are nifty, and the 2pc Bonus is pretty good iirc. The gloves and legs are full of fail, and the chest is a sidegrade at best from the Nightbane chest.

Yes, go with T4. Don't forget, you are a paladin, not a warrior. Some of the kara itemization purposefully puts you at lower HP due to developer design (pre expertise buff patch). - A combat log parsing API

any time you see an item with strength on it, you should try to run away.
