A few quick notes:For engineers, the Destruction Holo-Gogs are absolutely great. Much better than the spellstrike hood, imo. Also craftable at 62 now that Nethers are BOE. 29 crit, 64 damage, and a meta slot. It's light on spellhit - it's only weakness - but with the right combination of other items that can easily be compensated for.Also, while I loved the FSW robe, it just doesn't compare well to the robe off of Kael in Heroic MGT; which arguably is a stronger piece than the Badge robes (only a slight downgrade from the Tormented Demonsoul robes, which frees up 100 badges for something else.) Though you weren't talking about heroics much, MGT is one of the few that's absolutely worth it for any lock that's trying to gear out - four pieces (cloak, gloves, dagger and robe) come out of the heroic and regular versions. (including a fifth if you want an alternative to the FSW shoulders in the Fel-Tinged mantle.)Another great article though. Just about two months too late for me :)

"MGT is one of the few that's absolutely worth it for any lock that's trying to gear out - four pieces (cloak, gloves, dagger and robe) come out of the heroic and regular versions"You missed the biggest: Timbal's (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=34470). It's an aff lock's wet dream, one of the best in the entire game.Non-tailor locks will absolutely want to get the robe (or Crimson mentioned in another comment, more destro there because they're going to be absolutely starved for +hit). It's not as good as the badge piece but it is spectacular for a five man. My mage wears it over FSW, Departed Spirits, and t4.MGT is a piñata o' amazing loot. Starts at high end of five man, goes up through t4 quality and beyond to best in game (the trinkets).

Yeah - being a destro lock, I care not at all about Timbal's, but for affliction locks, it's probably the biggest possible upgrade in MGT.
