View Full Version : Which stats to aim for now?

12-08-2008, 12:18 PM
My current set of gear: http://eu.wowarmory.com/character-sh...r&n=Vegetarian

I recently replaced the Vindicators ring with the badge one, and got the ZA cloak instead of Drape of the Dark Reavers

I also recently changed to the MgT Heroic chest instead of http://www.wowhead.com/?item=33329

So im abit shy of the hit cap so i have to run with hit food instead of agility atm.

My guild is SSC progressing with Karathess and Vashj as the only bosses left / TK with VR and Solarian down, so thats what im able to gear up with atm.

Im always coming out as #1 on damage done (latest WWS: http://wowwebstats.com/snfvwp6ocw1ka )

But im really in doubt on where to go from now, just keep going for Agi / AP / Crit or should i start looking at some haste / armor pen? - How much of the "basic" stats should i trade in in favor of haste / armor pen?

Could someone post the stats to aim for at my current level for T5 content?

Haste rating:25
Arm Pen:421

I think thats my current stats unbuffed, cant remeber after switching around the gear..

Your hit rating's not too bad (but obviously you should aim for the cap). Tsunami Talisman from SSC would be a nice upgrade for you right now and will probably last you until WotLK.

I don't think you should worry too much about what stats to get. Take the upgrades you can get. There really isn't that many gear choices unless you can freely take leather pieces over rogues too (and you shouldn't do that). Your current gear is quite amazing compared to what most of us in our guild had when we were at that progression level over a year ago. Some of your gear will happily last you until Kil'Jaeden (like the ZA cloak).

There's virtually no haste (except the ZA cloak) and very little armor pen before Sunwell so no need to think about those yet. There's some armor penetration in few BT/Hyjal T6 pieces and they are going to be upgrades to you no matter what since you would want to get the 4-piece bonus which is a major damage boost.

We found craftable bracers http://www.wowhead.com/?item=32574 a bit better than those from t5 (hell, we're using them over t6 ones), mostly because it's nice +haste with good stats (at least for that lvl of gear). Other than that I would think about bagers chest too.

Other than that I agree with Ruoste, tho I'd start with ol, good Hourglass from BM (if not Tsunami Talisman as he suggests). But seeing that you're still using quest reward from HP you probably had no luck with Hourglass drop, sadly.

Ok cheers!

Would like to keep my edge over those pesky locks for as long as possible :P

Yeah, havent had much luck with trinkets, have never seen Hourglass drop, been in BM on 5 different chars many times.

Lost zerkers call twice because i was needed on my priest.

And Tsunami Talisman havent dropped yet, but as soon as it does ill pull rank on it and get that..
