These are itemized in a way very similar to the Tier 7 (10 man) warrior DPS shoulders.
Of course, they have a higher item budget, lack the set bonus, and can be used by Ret Paladins and Death Knights as well.
These are also very similar to 25man tier 7 warrior DPS shoulders, however these have a bit more strength and a little less crit, they are roughly equal in terms of DPS.
Socket Bonus: +4 Critical Strike Rating
Durability 100 / 100
Requires Level 80
Equip: Improves critical strike rating by 58 (1.26% @ L80).
Equip: Increases armor penetration rating by 43 (2.79% @ L80).
Same armor, stamina, yellow socket, only differences are:
4 crit rating or 4 ArP socket bonus
69 str and 75 str
65 crit rating and 58 crit rating.
These are a big upgrade from any other shoulders you have aside from your Tier 7.5 shoulders. These are amazing for a Death Knight because they have strength and critical strike. I just got these last night on my Death Knight.
According to maxdps.com and lootrank.com these are the best in-slot shoulders for a blood Death Knight.
IMO, the T7.5 shoulders are much better.
If you're way over the 8% hit cap as a Ret Pally (which can be very easy done with the amount of hit thats appearing on Ulduar non set piece gear):
Shoulderguards of Opportunity
Valorous Redemption Shoulderplates
With the nerf on Judgements made in 3.1, these shoulders become more viable, ~10DPS increase.
So for a Death Knight, are these better than the Valorous Scourgeborne ones? Even though maxdps.com says they are about .20 better it seems the set bonus may come in better affect.
Edit: Honestly i think the T7.5 are much better. After trying each one out in Heroics i think the little bit more AP and the set bonus comes into place.
its written Blood dk all over it .. Blood specc benefits most from Apr
These are (surprisingly) BiS for Blood DK's till you can get your hands on
from Algalon on normal mode.
My DK is full of ilvl 213 nax25 gear, above hitcap and the new T8 and T8,5 shoulders give you hitrating (wich i definately don't need) and haste rating (wich every blood DK DPS whos worth his salt tries to avoid as much as possible).
I think in order to reach the 4 piece set bonus of T8-8,5 you should get all pieces but the shoulders since those have 2 stats that are probably useless for you.
Heres a comparison for you, if you put an armor pen gem into the red slot and a crit gem into the yellow slots, and yes im counting socket bonuses too.
All the things above taken into account the
Algalon 10 man
shoulders win in every respect over
the nax 25 ones
+3 armor penetration rating
+12 crit rating
I think im not going to swap my Shoulderguards of the Undaunted for anything else but the Algalon ones.
No tier pieces for shure.
