This is a color model for DK T8
Vicious Potency my ass. My T7 chest takes a massive dump on this piece of crap, and it does it at much lower item level...
This is easily the worst Uldarr armor piece I've seen so far.....EPIC fail Blizz...
Ehm, the only class i can think off that would actually benefit from this over Naxx10man epics is Fury warriors. Since most of their attacks benefit from Armor penetration + haste with 2x 2h's is more effective due to the % haste bases off. AND the faster attacks equals to more rage. Other then that, FAIL BLIZZARD!
The stats on this item are not correct, I just recieved it on the live realms.
45 arm pen
Just received it on LIVE realms as well. Stats as listed by Tieran are correct.
Also confirming the stats.
It dropped for me and tried it out. As a replacement for the T7.5 chest piece.
Im a DK (Blood):
Valorous Scourgeborne battleplate:
+10 stats (enchant)
gem: 16 str
gem: 16 crit
bonus: 9 stm
equip: 83 haste
equip: 67 crit
Ive tried my dps with both chest pieces on different type of target dummies, with a standard same rotation.
My conclusion: Chestplate of Vicious Potency was slightly better dps without gems and enchant.
Only thing i need to do at this point is getting gems in en enchant and try it in raid.
However if your using dkp/epgp or whatever in your guild you might be thinking of passing it if you dont wanna spent the points on it, its not a major upgrade :P
I got this as a ret pally, I loved the strength on it and the haste, but in dps tests it seems to consistently underperform my Breastplate of frozen pain (
my hit% drops from 10.3% to 8.8% with the switch, is this just a hit rating issue or does the extra 64 crit somehow beat out the 81 haste, 45 armor penn, and 60 ap i get from this piece?
very nice chest when past the hit cap which is not that hard to get
onlything to complain about is that blue socket which sucks for dps -.-
This is part of a Death Knight T8 look alike set
Haste and Armor Penetration are welcome stats, but harder to theorycraft into actual DPS numbers than say, straight Critical rating or Strength. Fury Warriors will love having both on a single piece since 100% of their damage is physical and a dual wielding class will love melee haste. As of 3.2's proposed changes (including the new 4 sec. Crusader Strike), ArPen is looking like a nice stat for all Melee based classes with the exception of Unholy-specced Death Knight.
In any case, there's a pretty significant amount of Strength and a nice gem socket, of which you may or may not want to match depending on your meta choice, since +4 Critical is a mediocre to poor socket bonus. I personally would socket a +19 Strength and forego the socket, and meet the 2 blues for Chaotic Skyflare Diamond in a socket that provides a better bonus.
I won this yesterday on my Arms Warrior of which it replaced the T7 Dreadnaught chest I was wearing.
Socketed with a +16 ArP gem, and +8 super stats enchant I managed a decent dps increase in raid, but obviously this could vary from person to person with different gear.
Got his one last night on my DK. I have socketed it with
Bold Dragon's Eye
and replaced my
Heroes' Scourgeborne Battleplate
with it. I traded 60 Crit for 30 Sta, 23 Str (as my previous chest had 1 x 27 and 1 x 16 Str gems), 81 Armor, 45 Armor Penetration and 9 Haste so I think it was a good upgrade. Also I kept my 4/4 bonus, as my head, legs, shoulders and hands are all T7.5. Overall DPS increase is not really huge, but I still notice it.
P.S. If you already own
Valorous Scourgeborne Battleplate
pass on this one. 28 Str and 45 Armor Pen is insignificant compared to additional socket and 67 crit (the T7.5 chest has) when it comes to the actual DPS you make.
