"Elitist Jerks, do you do personalized gear advice requests?"
"No we don't."
I have currently Loshan, Terror Incarnate - (496 normal version upgraded 2/2) equipped, gemmed with +500 intel on the sha-socket and +320 spirit on the meta-socket. As a holy paladin, I know I could have had better luck so far, but still I had to run with this badly itemized for my class sword (no spirit, no mastery).
Last night, I acquired the heroic version of Tihan, Scepter of the Sleeping Emperor - 502 ilvl. Since it is perfectly itemized with mastery/spirit I got excited initially. Soon, I realized, the loss of the 2 gems kinda makes it not worth it, and I mean even if I do upgrade it 2/2.
