1. Don't link your Armory in your post (that's what your profile is for).
2. Spell slightly better than an infant.
yeah getting new gear that is better than t8 is going to a work in progress.
I, myself, just bought the t9 triumph helm. I figured to get this first due to it being my offset along with the 4pc t8.5.
Later during ToC10 I got the 232 Spirit Walker shoulders so I have been messing around with using non-tier8.5 (which I am still working on seeing the dps increase/decrease).
I figured if I was going to drop 4pc, might as well go with just keeping the 2pc instead of a waste with just a 3peice.
