So is Allison Robert's suggesting not to upgrade to the Staff of Trickery? Or just laying out alternatives if you don't WANT the staff of trickery? I currently have the revered Kirin Tor staff and I seem to be the only person in the world that the Staff of Trickery won't drop for. I've completed H-VH about 6 times so far with no drop in site.

It depends on what you're looking to do with said staff. If you're looking to DPS and you can't get the Staff of Trickery to drop, you have some other options in the worlds of polearms and two-handed maces. In fact, if you're not hit-capped (or if this would allow you to drop a piece of high hit gear), I'd recommend picking up a Titansteel Destroyer, a two-handed craftable mace. For tanking, that rep staff isn't ideal, but it's definitely not bad. Try running Heroic UK for the Enraged Feral Staff, which Allison does suggest.

With the changed to armor modifiers in 3.0.8, your Bear Form bonus armor only applies to leather and cloth. This is a significant nerf to weapons with armor on them. The tiny amount of physical mitigation you'll get from 700 armor does not outweigh the extra stamina, agility, and DPS (read: threat generation) the Staff of Trickery provide.Keep running Heroic VH. I had to clear the place about 8 times before I got it to drop.
