So here's my armory link http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte...fytzy/advanced
My first question is about the new ilvl upgrade system:
I'm capped on VP, and have no more blues, but I do have two 463 1H weapons I haven't been using because I've got the 489 2H weapon.
My plan with is to log on, upgrade my 2H weapon by 8 ilvls, and my DMC trinket by 8 ilvls with the 3000 valor I have atm. I'll be able to earn another 1000 valor (so one more upgrade of 4 ilvl's before raid tonight)
However I've wanted to go DW for quite some time but because of loot rules I've been passing on the 1H weapons that drop since one of the tanks still has a blue 1H weapon etc.
So knowing that DW is better cleave/aoe, and ALSO better single target dps then 2H atm, would upgrading my 2H weapon from a 489 to a 497 provide a bigger dps increase, or upgrading my two 463's from 463 to 479 with JP, and using the 1500 valor elsewhere provide more of a dps increase?
Also, as for the extra 4ilvl's I can upgrade an item with after the first 3000... which peice would you suggest placing the last 4 ilvls on if you were me? I was thinking the other trinket (Since my guild will take a while before downing heroic emperor and we haven't attempted any heroics yet but we will soon)
My second question is about my helm:
I currently have a 496 crit/exp helm with a yellow socket and a socket bonus of +180 crit. I was looking at a really geared DK that out-dps'd me in LFR today, and he was wearing the engineering helm.
Is the engineering helm a better piece to be wearing? Also if it is better then is it better for both DW and 2H, or just one or the other?
