Its actually really really nice.
I used it on Beta cause of the gear scaling anyway, not quite as sure currently, but the pieces are better than most 5man hc gear.

Not only some pieces give us better stats, but I have just noticed on the armory that the pants I bought appears to be 464 instead of 458 now. Since I don't have access to the game at the moment, could anyone have a look? Because if that's the case I'm so buying more pvp gear.

It WAS 464 at release, then bumped back to 458 (while justice stuff was bumped to 458 from 450)

I see, thanks, so it might simply be a case of armory not updated?

You have NO idea >_< I was skimming interesting Justice/Honor rewards, and while everything honor-related is all nice and tidy in Kun-Lai, Justice is friggin' ALL OVER THE PLACE!!

Add to THAT that some pieces don't have rep requirement, and not every link on wowhead seems to link to the same items, it's not easy to follow up on the status.

Commander Lo Ping at Niuzao Temple is the official Justice Quartermaster, he sells every JP piece from all available reps.

And by the way, checking both honour and justice gear on wowhead and the armory it appears that on wowhead is all reported as 458 while armory shows honour as 464 and justice as 450, so it seems that I got excited for nothing and is simply the armory not updated.

Is Relic of Niuzao any good for us now that it has been buffed (added stamina)?

Alternatives being all of Coren's trinkets and Heart of Fire. I'm a bit lost as to what I should get and if Niuzao one, even when replace the stamina Coren trinkets, is worth 10k.

Only thing that has me going is the insane on use dodge that Niuzao trinket gives for 12sec every minute... but, it's dodge...

The Darkmoon trinket is good, but expensive.
Atleast it got a decent ammount of dodge compared to the sucker trinkets giving like 3-4k dodge on use/procc.
Thisone gives about 9% avoidance, thats pretty decent for a trinket imo.
I prolly wont replace it ever, and use it together with the trash trinket from heroics with mastery on use.

Wowhead is down so i can't direct link...

So...

VS

Secondary stats are way better on the blue ones (going control-way) but obviously the lfr nes have a higher total value...

The Shado-pan trinket looks pretty rad, and would be my first choice (if I had the rep!!!)
The chest looks kickass with Hit/Expertise, but the set piece is not bad, so you'll probably replace it early.
The ring would be a nice idea (since you need two of them), but the itemisation is *ungh*
The rest is so-so, with either Haste/Mastery of some combinaison of Parry/Dodge with another, better stat.

I bought the necklace, and am looking forward to FINALLY getting Shado-pan rep. *grumbles*

I was looking at the equip ranking while toying with stats weights for the mrRobot topic.Going by the numbers theck suggests

Shado-pan trinket ranks second in the non-heroic gear ranking
Golden lotus shoulders rank fourth
Everything else is way behind for the relative slot,so from that point of view those should be the 2 best pieces to buy,more so considering that it seems everything valor-related /the trinket will get swapped out with raid drops when the 2 new instances open

P.s: actually,the chest ranks third BUT the mega-lizard world boss drops both the first and the forth in the ranking,while the crafted one is second,so out of all of them chest is the slot with most options already avaiable
