I know the general rule of thumb, is go with the higher item level, but i appear to have a slight dilema. My guild has just started officially raiding, and sooner or later, i know im going to get either a 489 fist from gara'jal, or the polearm from spirit kings.
The issue i have, is i have the sha touched staff, and tonight i got my 500 agility gem. Would the 483 staff with a 500 gem still be better than the 489 polearm from spirit kings, or should i hold of on the gem till i get the normal mode staff, even though that could take quite a while?
Any help is greatly appreciated!
