It should have been a quick process, but I swear every vendor was offering the gear for the wrong reasons… Arena points, Token hand ins, BG tokens…
No matter which item I wanted, I went to the wrong vendor. I finally got my shoulders, gloves and trinket, but for the life of me, I couldn’t find the Spellblade vendor.
I did finally on Saturday. 5 minutes on WoW Armory, 5 minutes in game, and I was the proud owner of a (short) new mainhand. I think I prefer the look of a sword being dragged through the earth.. gives the impression that I am mightily powerful.. powerful enough to plough the earth with a sword.. but ultimately I would prefer to plough through mobs, even if that is with a dagger – I’m not a farmer you know.. not even in the WoW sense.
The only dilemna I now face, is what I use my T4 token (Leggings of the Fallen Hero, that I grabbed off Gruul) for T4 pants, or Gladiator pants. No one else in the raid wanted them, so I thought rather than getting 4g for them, I would turn them into something useful.
Let’s compare them.
Currently equipped: Spellstrike pants.
Compared to SpellStrike Pants
Gladiators: +42 Stam, -22 Spell Hit, +2 Spell Crit, -46 Spell Damage, +75 Resilience
(2) Set: +35 Resilience Rating.
Aldor: +19 Stam, +2 Spell Hit, -26 Spell Crit, -24 Spell Damage
(2) Set: Gives you a 100% chance to avoid interruption caused by damage while casting Fireball or Frostbolt.
Gladiators vs. Aldor.
Gladiator has: +23 Stam, -24 Spell Hit, +28 Spell Crit, -18 Spell Damage, +75 Resilience
Now I guess my primary purpose for having the pants is to increase my survivability.. after all for damage = spellstrike. I will probably only use them for HKM (on the on occasion that I need to mage-tank), PvP, or occasionally when I want a stamina/survivability boost.
So I am leaning towards the Gladiator’s Silk Trousers.
What do you think?
