really nice amount of stamina
Perhaps A dps tank hybrid piece?
PvP item :)
Using the numbers from Redcape's retadin spreadsheet, this BP comes out as the second best currently available, even with so much of its stat budget spent on stamina. The only reason this isn't a truly great item is that it comes from Sapphiron in Naxx25 and has to compete with a BP off Maexxna that's easier to get and significantly better budgeted.
If I were blizz, I'd have removed a good chunk of stamina there and put some haste or ArP on it =)
i'm a dps bloood DK and i think its perfect
Stamina on a DPS item is never a waste. Simple fact is that if you're dead, you do zero DPS once any DoTs fade, etc.
Having enough hit points to survive AoEs and randomly targetted spells (for instance, Sapphiron's frost bolts, blizzards and auras) far outweighs a few more points spent on DPS stats on an item.
With two sockets, this item is friggin' amazing.
except when fighting Patchie then you want to have 10K HP
This chestplate is amazing. Has hit rating, crit, and a good amount of strength all together in one piece of armor. If you're a DK, Warrior, or Ret Pally, you can't pass this up.
I'm not sure why people are arguing about the presence of Stamina... on many fights Stamina is of great benefit to DPS and in Ulduar it will be even more important, as anyone who remembers AQ40 trash will remember. Even on Naxx25 encounters like Thaddius and Heigan, low HP will result in death.
This chestpiece is the single best DPS Plate chest in the game for Death Knights; every DK needs plain old Strength, Hit and Crit, and this has them all in abundance. It even beats the T7.5 Scourgeborne Battleplate, which has the fairly undesirable Haste stat attached to it.
Until Ulduar, any DK passing this item up is insane.
Highwind, I agree with your post, but I am merely suggesting it is a good choice of the T7 chest is not an option at the time.
Speaking as the T7 chest for DK is the worst piece...Replace it with this if you want to keep the 4 piece.
Considering how god awful most pvp gear is, and how high in budget resil is at this point...and also considering how most plate wearers aren't concerned about resilience, but stamina IS pretty decent (for now, in season 5)...this MIGHT be worth picking up to use for pvp if you're ret, a dk or a warrior...other than that there are many chests that have a better spread of real DPS stats and should almost certainly be taken instead of or to replace this chest.
It has a ton of stamina yes, still best in slot for a DK right now.
i cant really understand this :
how did blizzard managed to make this chest that drops from saphiron heroic to be equal or even worse than than t7 warrior dps chest which can be purchased for 80 badges of heroism.
i am not talking about ohter plate dps classes - my comment is strictly for dps titan;s grip warriors
Best in slot for a DK.
hmm why is this best in slot for dk? the tier 7.5 chest has more crit, haste which can't be so bad if you are already hit capped without this frozen pain chest, and they have the same amount of strength and both have 2 sockets so?:>
For all of you saying "Haste is bad for a ret pally", it's not. It scales very nicely with Seal of Blood, which is what you
be using in a raid scenario.
Way better for any kind of DPS DK except for the DW frost dps ilk, who would benefit from the retarded amount of haste on the t7.5 chest. Otherwise, t7 chest is the absolute WORST item in the set, and DKs would be well served to avoid it unless they're upgrading a blue or something. t7 helm and BP of Frozen Pain are a much better set up than t7 chest and Spiked Titansteel Helm, which is what I see a lot of DKs running around with.
Probably the best DPS chest avalible for a DK, since the t7 chest has a lot of haste, which is in many ways a wasted stat for a DK. I just replaced my old t7 chest for this one and this left up a lot of gem slots where i was previously using hit gems. Overall this is a great upgrade for DKs. I dont know about Retadins and Warriors, but as far as i know DKs is the class that benefits the least from haste.
Shave 30pts off the stamina, put 15 pts into STR, and this item would be gorgeous.
As it stands now the Warrior T7.5 chest is FAR better, and it's a sidegrade from the T7 chest at best.
Really, unless your lacking hit rating, this chest peice is worthless for ret pallies over the T7.5
Less crit rating, same amount of strength, more stamina and more hit, but who really cares about stamina if your doing less dps than you could be doing, and in reality, whats 350 extra health going to do for you, in all seriousness.
You are right for most dk's seeing as they're all moslty 2h dk's. But those silly bastards that DW spec would probably like the t7.5 stuff.
The Tier 7.5 chestpiece for Death Knights is the worst piece in the set for 2H DKs. I am using the T7.5 chest at the moment for the 4set bonus, but have this in the bank for when I either deem my 4set no longer necessary or get my 7.5 helm.
