Wow, pillar still got str which is the most awesome stat for tanking ... oh wait, maybe not.
So they just upped AP but still left it as a sidegrade to wildfury, sigh. Why cant they just change the str into agi to make it really nice staff.
Thanks...and how underwhelming. While on the subject, what do people generally consider the better choice for tanking anyway? It depends on the encounter as well I suppose though, but Wildfury seems to get more bang for its buck.
Wowhead has new stats for [Terestian's Stranglestaff] too. You know I find it somewhat amusing that I don't really have to hope for weapon drops or grind badges for them since Blizzard just gives them a crappy +FAP bump every patch.
No, you may not roll a spiked chain wielding half-ogre.
I don't have them on me, but I can tell you what it probably is: 1010 FAP since the old is 788.
It looks like a simple change of scaling modifier by (iLvl, rarity) from 1H to 2H, which means that whatever the FAP on your epic FAP weapon is now, the new one is approximately 1.282 times the old one (actual factor something between 1.281 and 1.282).
It also looks after a quick reverse calculation as if all the new badge loot is of item level 128.
That makes me possibly even sadder about the badge druid chestpiece - even without making it an 8 item levels higher copy of Malorne, it should have been possible to design it such that it would blow either Shadowprowler's (23 item levels lower) or Heavy Clefthoof (14 item levels and one rarity level lower) out of the water or, failing that, at least provide a viable alternative to both of them, if it had to be made as a hybrid piece of gear.
Not just a hybrid piece, but a hybrid piece with no sockets.
In that sense if it had been 8 levels higher than T4 we could've socketed it for tanking.
Pretty sure there's heaps for ZA loot to be found so we might get some stuff there.
I also redid my dps calcs looks like most of those rogue badge items are better than anything before t6 content (pants are the exception).
Perhaps Wowhead doesn't have the ability to "see" expertise ratings yet. Anyone have PTR screens of the ring?
Appears that Earthwarden - Items - World of Warcraft doesn't show any expertise either, so I wouldn't be surprised to find that Wowhead can't display expertise yet. Unfortunately none of the other items I've checked from those I can remember that have weapon skill/feral combat skill are updated on wowhead (belt of one hundred deaths, clefthoof hide legs, grips of deftness).
