Preraid trinkets - question

Postby Hespherus » Tue Oct 02, 2012 2:01 am

Im just wondering, what 2 trinkets do you guys think would be best for us preraid? I personally went with the 2 brewmaster trinkets, but thats because i still didnt get the 1350+ stamina one + 2.3k dodge chance from Gekkan in Mogu´shan palace.

Are there any other trinkets that we could consider as pallys right now?

Also side question, would you go with the Zen Alchemist stone instead of one of the stamina trinkets? 751 mastery and 4051 strength on a 27% uptime, so roughly 1105 strength. Could be pretty handy. Thats 8k AP if im not mistaken, so we could have a stronger SS, stronger heals, more parry and just more dps 27% of the time. Thoughts?

I went with the crafted Engineering trinket you can buy from the AH. 3 of your best stats at +600 each is hard to pass up. My health has never been an issue in any heroic, and I tend to pull multiple packs at once, so I've foregone any stam trinkets until I see evidence that they're better than the mastery/avoidance ones.

For my second trinket I went with Heart of Fire from Shado-Pan. Mastery boost and a bit of extra avoidance when I need it. Which also comes in handy when you freak out your healers by doing Heroic Temple of the Jade Serpent in 4 pulls.

You can equip the trinket and make use of the cogwheels even if you arent an engineer?

Yeah ... threw me for a loop when I kept seeing them pop up on the AH, finally moused over it and was pretty amazed.

Yes. The new cogwheels (Tinker's Gear) are crafted by engineers and have no requirements.

The thought of 600 hit/expertise and mastery is appealing :).

Yeah, matter of fact I've got a bag full of trinkets with higher ilvl but are all stamina or avoidance trinkets, so I'm sticking to my Dragonling.

Reading Thecks latest blog post I'm thinking http://www.wowhead.com/item=81268 might be fairly good for us, 847 exp with on use strength every 2 min. Use with holy avenger if we need the dps or separate for a little parry and bigger WoGs.

Being an engineer and having used 5 cogwheels in my gear (goggles+dragonling), I'm going with Dragonling (Dodge/Parry/Mastery) and [Heart of Fire] until I can get the heroic [Iron Protector Talisman].

Of note: I am skipping brewfest trinkets altogether. The ~700 dodge on the Brawler is pointless in the face of the Dragonling and the stam trinkets are underwhelming when you can drop 7 item levels of stamina for a more useful proc.

I'm fairly happy with double Brewfest trinkets. I could use a mastery or exp trinket in place of one, but neither have dropped. Dragonling is fairly good but not as good while I already have goggles -- I will have to remember to use it on Gara'jal.

Im very happy with double Brewfest trinkets tbh, but Iron Protector Talisman is just about as good, 86sta or the random dodge, its not really a big differance, I just choose brewfest in most cases, but its good to have both.
I dont really like the dragonling, but even if I had it, Dodge and parry gems would be the very last gem Id ever use there, it should be hit/exp/mastery if anything, maybe even haste rather than mastery.
