So, I just got the 855 version of http://www.wowhead.com/item=134518/frozen-pendulum-shoulderguards&bonus=1726%3A0&spec=73 on top of the 850 version of http://www.wowhead.com/item=134503/inferno-breastplate&spec=73&bonus=1826 I had kept in reserve just in case the other dropped. Issue is, currently I have 850 http://www.wowhead.com/item=139232/midnight-heralds-pauldrons&bonus=1807%3A0&spec=73 with a socket and 865 http://www.wowhead.com/item=138216/horror-inscribed-chestguard&bonus=1807%3A0&spec=73.

How valuable is the 2set bonus, and is it worth downgrading my overall gear ilvl drop just for it?

Hard to say I wish you linked your armory, it really depends on your crit and your haste, if you're crit is at or below 30% without the 2 sec i wouldn't suggest use the 2 set. If can achieve at least 30% crit with the 2 set equip i would suggest it, if you drop below 30% crit i would avoid it. The 2 set is around a 40-60% uptime depending on rng, and provides a flat 8% increase to damage which averages out around 3-5% flat dps increase off the set bonus which out weighs the strength you would gain by a lot, but you lose crit gain haste which could be good or bad depending on how much haste and crit you have.

 

TLDR: If you have 30% crit with the 2 set equipped use the 2 set if not stay with other gear.

Thanks for the help. Guess I'll have to wait until I get another high-crit piece, then.
