The legendary bow also seems lackluster. So either the second image has early items stats before they came out with the crit raiting (and not to mention much higher DPS weapons in Naxx), or it is just fake.
Wow. When you consider the blues, and even "easy" epics, that players are running around in currently, those screenshots are really impressive. Apparently the gap is going to close considerably, and much faster than I know I was anticipating.
First one looks legit. Most of the blue armor without gem sockets seems to have stat budget of approximately iLvl 89 blue under current system, though the armor values are lower. Socketed items have a lot less stats. That would mean blues equivalent to tier1 raid set right off the bat on TBC.
Yes, those blue leather boots are quite good, I am glad that blizzard will allow AP/agility on more items (also look at the green of the Bandit armor, almost as good as Nightslayer). I wonder what difficulty that dungeon was done at (Blizzard hinted you get better items if you increase the level of the dungeon).
I wonder how the socket bonus works (I guess you get it when the item has full sockets in it).
