In my opinion, this will be best in slot for offensive casters. I definitely want one of these. And it's BoE as well. GG Bliz. GG.
By far the best BoE caster belt in the game. A step up from
Plush Sash of Guzbah
in every way.
I'm currently using
Cincture of Polarity
, which is pretty awesome with the added belt buckle Gem slot. However with the upcoming changes with spirit for FFB Mages, maybe
Cord of the White Dawn
would be more favourable, assuming you're hit-capped ofc. I'm sure we'll get a better handle on these changes once 3.1 goes live.
A comparison of all 226ilvl (heroic ulduar) belt drops.
There are 5 in total. The healing and dps tailoring belts, and a hit, crit, and haste belt.
Best in slot belt for most dps casters at the moment. With a belt buckle this thing is even more amazing. 3 sockets on a belt is pretty insane.
just got mine today and got a runed stormjewel from the fishing daily lol ^^
i replaced cinture ofc
got mats from my guild and bought spellweave / ebonweave cds for like 20-30 g each w/ my mats
Looks like the new Belt of Blasting if you ask me :D
This looks like the best ranged dps belt to me
Combine this baby with an Eternal Belt Buckle and put 2 times 19+spellpower gems in it combined with one runed dragon's eye (32sp):
158 spellpower! Enjoy ;-)
Note: Runed dragon's Eye is only avaiable for JC's!
Total Materials (if the tailors don't have any specc):
If you plan on getting Ebonweave/Spellweave spec'd tailors then the mats are as follows:
As of 3.1.2, with Algalon loot still a bit on the MIA side, this belt seems to be the best for SP for most Casting DPS. Definitely a good investment of Spellweave and Ebonweave. 2 standard slots, with an extra slot from a
Eternal Belt Buckle
, loaded with 3
Runed Scarlet Ruby
equals roughly 138 SP on the belt, which makes this belt the highest SP waist atm.
Drops from any boss inside Ulduar.
If you're a DPS caster and planning to get a BiS belt, you probably want to consider this OR
Cord of the White Dawn
I don't know why in the nine realms you guys are comparing this amazing belt to
Is EASILY Far superior to Guzbah. It was the BiS for caster DPS pre-ulduar, and this is the REAL stepping stone up to Sash of ancient power.
I'd say, if you want to get a BiS and have a lot of cash.... Go with the sash. Otherwise, largemanBBs post can show you some decent belts that only cost either dkp or a lucky roll
Currently BiS for any caster dps that isn't already hit capped.
I almost have the mats for creating it but with 3.2 coming out will this belt still be worth making? Or should I sell my runed orbs?
I had this crafted last week and I'm very pleased with it. As an elemental shaman I will sometimes consider wearing cloth (or leather) in the belt and boots slots when the dps increase is significant. The Sash is a perfect example but before considering dropping down to a lower armor class do the math yourself (for ele shaman the EJ SEIC spreadsheet can't be beat) to be sure the drop in armor and the cost is worth it to you.
The sockets and the hit on the Sash allow for significant versatility in your other slots (perhaps ditch a hit trinket, use a slot to hit your meta, etc.). More than that the pure dps makes it BiS for me. Like I said though, don't take other people's word about items that may be BiS for you. Play with your stats at Chardev.org and plug those stats into the appropriate spreadsheet. It's the only way to really be sure what's BiS for you.
I highly doubt that Blizzard will make these expensive, high-iLevel items obsolete early in the next patch. I'm sure there will be better items but I expect them to be marginal upgrades and only from the later bosses. Also, keep in mind that 3.2 is still a long way off. I doubt we'll see it within 10 weeks and probably not that soon.
The cost of the belt is relatively high, but even after buying 2 pieces of T8.5 with emblems I still had enough by last week to buy two orbs with emblems. I spent a touch under 8k on the rest of the mats. Expensive but not horrible.
Hee. It abbreviates to SOAP.
Not sure how this is going to turn out for BIS for all casters with the Starwatcher's Bindings.
Don't see it on wowhead yet but it can be found
Socket Bonus: +7 Spell Power
Durability 35 / 35
Requires Level 80
Item Level 239
Equip: Improves critical strike rating by 47.
Equip: Increases spell power by 92.
I had a
Cord of the White Dawn
crafted, because as a mage I'm already hitcapped from 4x conqueror's and some other gear, and as a firemage I benefit from crit. Both my gut feeling and Rawr tell me the Cord is a better choice in my case, because overcapping hit is bad mkay!
Just thought i'd mention, this belt matches
Since 3.2 this has become a lot more affordable and any serious raider should splash out on this while buying the other quick epic raiding gear such as titansteels (by titansteels i mean the sp weps not melee)
hell any experianced raider should be considering this aswell
It's worth noting (to the fashion-savvy players out there) that the sash looks more like
Binding of the Dragon Matriarch
, a boss drop from 10-man Razorscale, than Belt of the Darkspeaker, as is listed in "Same Model As."
