Here's a dirty secret about tank trinkets: The triumph trinket is better. As a good friend of mine says "Stack armor or you hate your healers." This friend was the lowest health tank I've raided 25man with (57k buffed with 20% buff), and he never dropped below 85% health on Festergut. The EoF trinket is something you should borrow if you are ranged tanking keleseth (where armor doesn't matter).If you really, really want the Herkuml War Token instead of your 2p-T10, borrow it. You can re-sell your trinkets before 2 hours for a full 60 EoF refund. As far as 2t10 bonuses not really being beneficial, I'll give a quick breakdown. For healers: Priest set is okay, but not completely necessary. Paladin 2 piece is pretty decent (better than t9), but still not all that necessary. Druid 2piece is pretty awesome. Shaman 2 and 4piece sets are almost godlyHere's a quick (in my opinion) DPS breakdown for 2piece Tier10:1. DK - great bonus2. Druid - amazing bonus for balance, decent for feral3. Hunter - amazing set bonuses4. Mage - 2piece is beyond godly for arcane, and is awesome for fire.5. Paladin - amazing bonus. Yes, divine storm resetting is that good. I'm not sure how you can screw up a FCFS rotation.6. Priest - somewhat boring but very effective bonus7. Rogue - amazing set bonus8. Shaman - interesting set bonuses (for enhance and ele) that are amazing if you use them right9. Warlock - 2piece bonus boring but effective.10. Warrior - an RNG based bonus that is amazing when it occurs.For tanks, 2piece t10 doesn't do anything for survivability, so if you aren't planning on getting 4piece, it probably isn't worth it to go for 2piece.TL;DR: If you are a tank or a pally/priest healer, you can skip tier. If you are a dps or a resto shaman/resto druid, your first emblems of frost should be going to your tier10.
