More DPS, More!

I did some upgrading with my badges today.  Hammerhead Sharkskin Cloak, Belt of the Singing Blade, and I dropped a pile of cash for Etched Ring of the Kirin Tor.   Then I re-gemmed the Nesingwary 4000 with 20 hit, enchanted Gauntlets of the Wretched with 20 hit, and enchanted both Ironsoul and Edge of Ruin with Berserking.  A before and after 1 million damage test on the Heroic Training Dummy showed a 300dps increase (with 5 stacks of Sunder Armor and Battle Shout kept up), and a 30 second decrease in time to do that 1 million damage.  My hit rating is still below 8%, plus I’m Titan’s Grip, so I think my magic number is 9%, but there are a few other gem slots I’m heavily considering changing to hit gems as well.

I think I’m done buying upgrades with Conquest badges too. My next “easy” upgrade is a Triumph badge ring, with my eyes set on the Kologarn cloak from Uld10.  Cloaks with strength instead of agility are just annoyingly hard to find it seems, though 3 of them drop in Uld10.  My other annoying slot is legs.  I have the ToC legs currently, and was going to grind out 75 Conquest badges to convert to Valor badges and buy those legs since they seemed to be better than the Conquest legs, but now I’m wondering if that’s what I really want.  There don’t seem to be any high end legs that are clear upgrades aside from the Triumph legs, so maybe I should go for those instead of the ring, and those are 50 Triumphs, compared to the 35 needed for the ring (currently have 25).  I should do more 10-man VoA and hope for the legs to drop there, haha.

End of August Update
