Aug 25th 2008 11:22AM is any of the shaman season 2 gear being changed stat wise???
atm with the changes to the way AP is worked out it seems as tho it'll be practically useless to its dedicated spec anymore. (except maybe the legs, that splash of int does make up for the loss of ap from strength with that new int to ap talent)
Mar 19th 2008 1:31PM def does indeed seem to vanish, which is why im glad i'm alchy :P not many 52 def trinkets lying around!
i agree we shouldn't have to gear for threat gen, but i'm just looking for the ways that will give me the biggest overall improvment and hopfully help with rage generation during a dodge streak!.
my big want from 2.4 is the neck from SSO rep, the one thats almost identicaly like the badge reward (minus a few hit and expertise) with such a awesome proc for exlated scryers, probably won't have to stack expertise because the damn thing caps you and your group every time it procs!! if you haven't already seen that one allison depending on the proc rate we might not be in need of expertise on our leahter ;)
Mar 19th 2008 11:10AM if you don't think gearing for threat is imporant thats your choice, sure i wouldn't take threat over being able to survive, but if you have enough dodge enough hp enough ac, why just make yourself more of a meat-wall when you could make tons more threat and let your dps'ers go wild.
i guess also its just plain more intressting to try and find ways to approach or get hit capped with the gear avilable ! who wants to be just another meat-wall. also for some context of my situation, i recently took a break from raiding and came back to playing with people wearing t5 ssc/tk lewtz and badge gear, they def outgear my tier 4 stuff having only 1 drop from any of ssc/tk at my disposal (the shoulders) i guess i've been finding there isn't always such a comfortable distance between my threat and the top dps'ers.

you having a bad day or something? your always such a negative poster :(
and i never said ANYTHING about having issues with threat generation, anyway more threat generation at anypoint in raid content is better, you should never settle with 'well...they aren't pulling aggro' your job is to make enough threat so they can push past the 1400-1500dps (in ssc/tk) and still be comftably behind your aggro.
and as for your post 'Kara Ring. Maiden Ring. Badge Neck. PVP Bracers. Illhoof Cape. Tanking Enchant for shoulders/head. That should be it. Get out of those blues.'
its shade that drops the tanking ring not maiden, better pve bracers from badges, better cape from badges so my advice for Super Guest Man 9000 (:P love the name) is get those, gettin uncritable is quite easy with the already mentioned and a def trinket ;) (if your an alchmist happy days for the easy to new 52def trinket if not one drops in sl which is pretty good or from ssc) once you replace the earthwarden and the cleft set you really need to be rolling with a def trinket, if your still falling short or if you want to explore more options with your gear roll with a ironskin elixir, with its 30resi you can be uncritable with just below 400 def
Mar 19th 2008 5:34AM can i just say it was such a please reading this, you actually know what your talking about when it comes to feral!!
i'm planning on stacking some hit (can reach 94 with some good expertise before even tier 6 content) will be great for threat generation, a lot more than haste will be, who cares if you hit faster if your still missing loads :P
also, i know its about badge gear, but take a look at the season 4 pvp feral chest, socketed correctly imo its better than tier 5 and if it wasn't for the dip in armour better than tier 6 socketed correctly (whilst also giving you +hit and resi for uncritable)
oomoo of eu-bladefist (aka shitfist)
Mar 12th 2008 1:49PM haste is only good if you have enough expertise, more hits is nice...but that also means more parrys which means a lot more incoming dmg, with a druid who is maybe dodge tanking you'll already take spikey dmg, this can actually be very bad for your health
Haste rating - use - with - caution :P

i'd like to make a serious suggestion for replacing your guardian elixir, what i use is a ironskin elixr, it gives + 30 ressilence, which means i can remove some item with def and replace it with something more useful, wether it be a hit/expertise neck or a high stam trinket, or for the next patch that sunwell badge loot ring. tell me what you guys think! (and please no DEF OVER RESI ALWAYS posts, the differnce is small when compared to the possible gains)
with my current gear i have 15k hp unbuffed with 86 hit 10 expirtise points and a hole lot of dodge!
gettin uncritable to smart way ftw!
