Avenger's Trillium Legplates or Greaves of Cyclopean Dread


Wondering if it's worth making the crafted pants on a fresh 90, or just wait for luck from the Celestials and make Avenger's Trillium Waistplate instead. Any recommendations from experienced players? Looking to carry my weight in DPS so I can slip into Flex for fun. Thanks guys!

Well, personally i'd prefer to craft the belt and wait for tier legs, espesially since the 2-set is really strong. Ofc with terrible rng, u could be waiting for weeks to get the legs off celestrials, so the crafted legs would be valuable in that case. On another note, both belt and legs can also come from Ordos(Give u got the leg cloak on ur account) which could give u either. With really sucky luck u could craft either legs or belt and then later get that exaxt spot from Ordos.


It all comes down to what u wanna go for urself, personally i'd got with belt and hope for legs from celestrials or even ordos for that matter.


In terms of dps, the belt is really good for 2hander as frost, and decent for dual wield, while the legs have the best stats for dual wield(mastery and crit).

Basically what Horcored said. If you're trying to raid with this fresh DK then it's all about whatever is going to get you up to 496 for lfr, 520 for flex, etc. Whatever your raiding goal is you want to get the min ilvl for someone to take you along in their group as quickly as possible.


Ordos does drop a belt, and there's also the possibility of getting a 522 pvp belt off celestials, but overall you're probably better off crafting the belt and waiting for legs to drop.


Also don't forget that Nalak and Oondasta loot are still a good upgrades for gearing up, or you could even go to openraid and find a normal ToT run. Zagam pretty much helped me gear up a fresh 90 horde DK to 535ish ilvl in 1 day by running Heroic ToT and Flex.

It depends on if you are 2h or dw, which pants you want.  Also on a fresh 90 its probably going to be a while before you get access to 553 t16.

      Anyone else receiving fear that absolutely wipes haste off?

      Hey there, looking for some common mistakes I might be making in my gear or dps rotation that I am just not seeing. You'd think it would be pretty basic but my dps has been all over the place recently. 

      I will be fighting kiljaeden (pretty standard) and have anywhere from 650-850dps average for the fight. It's gotten me kicked a couple times obviously despite being good on mechanics. I've reviewed several guides, made sure I am enchanted and gemmed... cannot figure it out. What am I doing wrong? (Yes low on meters for other fights as well though not always). 

      924 iLevel, wearing legendary belt and chest (dont have tier to wear shoulders and chest)

      67% Mastery (issue?) 
      24% Critical Strike
      29% Haste

      Opener: Blood Fury, Tome (trinket), Crow, Bestial Wrath, Dire Frenzy, KC, AspectotW, Titan's Thunder, CS, KC, DF...

      Repeat KC, CS, And cast DF whenever buff falls off or procs bonus. 

      Talent Build is:
      Killer Cobra

      Helps, tips, advice welcome. 

      Are there common mistakes to rotation i might be making even if u dont see it here? Should i be working hard to gear swap? I am at a loss and it is getting frustrating. Thanks

      I created a guide for Crafting in Legion. It was posted on Wowhead a few days ago. You can check it out here. http://www.wowhead.com/guide=5282. Let me know what you think of it.

      Hi guys, just the bi-annual gear check. On concordance 2.
      Currently 6/10M, 
      That has me in what I call my heroic/mythic gear, combined with interrupts and the the interrupts from tremble before me, the speed and haste boost is nice.

      For raid gear, its a mix of M/H (always maintaining 4 set) tier with Skullflower's Haemostasis and Service of Gorefiend and ill swap out tremble for whatever is suited for the fight, and usually always go with purgatory.

      Now I do have Royal Dagger Haft and Animated Exoskeleton as my trinkets, but could replace Royal Dagger Haft with Fang of Tichondrius (yay or nay). To be honest, in Mythic, the dagger has saved my butt numerous times and I don't like the loss of crit I get if i equip fang.
      My other legendaries are Shackles of Bryndaor and Archimonde's Hatred Reborn (which i never use)
      My main question is, is what I'm doing a good strategy, does the effects from skullflower and gorefiend outway the pure stats of my heroic setup? Plus any suggestions from the wise would be awesome. I try and follow the "Balanced" gearing strategy.
      Regards, and thanks,

      Hi everyone! I am slightly suck on what gear i should be trying to go for right now, and itemization for what i have, and should be wearing, my armory is here :http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/stormrage/Bãttousai/simple. My issue is that i have the legendary cloak and legendary pants so far and according to the guide those are both of the slots for the best tier pieces, is it worth wearing the tier pants over Valeeras Will? i dont have any logs at the moment, but i usually parse around 60% on fights with not much movement, but drops down to 30% on fights with movement and i feel like that is because my gear is not optimized compared to others of my item level, i have been playing rogue for a long time and i fully understand the rotation and am confident that i am doing everything correctly. How much of an item level drop should i allow to get better optimized stats? Thanks! Edit - The gems and weapon ilvl on the armory link is bogus, my weapons are 896 not 925, other than that everything is correct.
