Is the procrate good enough to consider that?
(oh yeah, I could try Solace but that dropped twice for us - once in normal, once in Heroic, think we're really unfortunate with trinket drops in ToC - same stuff was with Death's Choice)
Definitely not worth buying, imho.
50 badges are better spent on saronite for crafted gear or getting some set pieces ready for upgrades in 25man and eventually heroic. [Purified Lunar Dust] is easily replaced with [Sliver of Pure Ice]. The latter has more spellpower and ends up giving slightly more mp5. Because of the 45s-1m ICD on the trinket, a boss fight results in 68-76 mp5 (see wowhead for detailed calculations from several sources/tests), while the ice gives similarly 66-87mp5.
The trinkets you currently have access to sound just fine. Pandora has about 82mp5 if DP is kept on CD (depending on fight length too). Talisman still more mp5. Yeah, you lose some sp, but not much (talisman gives 30sp and pandora has the proc as well as 26sp from int/talents).
