Hey all question, I'm currently in a very casual raid guild since I dont have time to play like I used to so my gear is goin to come from mainly LFR and Shado-pan rep gear I'm wondering if the rep gear would be better for frost then the LFR gear even with the set bonuses. Thanks in advance! us.battle.net/wow/en/character/kilrogg/Parnnor/simple
Isn't it just better to use the valor points on the 522 gear and worry about it when you actual get the T15 LFR set pieces? It might take you weeks or even months before you've gotten a full set. I bought the 522 neck and bracers at first, and I'll wait and see from there.
If you're persistent enough to make a decision this early, doing as the ones above suggested would your best bet.
he's asking if the LFR t15 set bonuses would be better than 522 non-set gear.
probably just have to sim it to see.
Yes ino, but he don't want to waste VP in case he got some crappy belt, bracers or back (Even the elite hc from protectors isn't as good) That's why I wish to see his armory and judge if the offset item is even wroth to pick up over the belt/bracers/back

Askmrrobot has a gear upgrade comparison. I remember looking at it since I am in the same situation as you and the Valor 522 gear wins out. I believes it takes into account set bonuses and not just stat weights. The result in not a surprise. It would be shocking that even with set bonuses and better itemization, how 502 ilevel gear could beat out ilevel 522. That 20 difference in ilevel represents a huge amount of raw stats.
T14 wasn't as dramatic since the difference was only between 476 and 489 and I chose to go with LFR set for cosmetic reasons as much as for DPS which was close, but the 20 ilevel difference in T15 favors the valor gear too much
try and get all non set item slots filled with the 522 valor gear, and go for the set bonus items from lfr, right now am saving my old 4/4 set as the bonus is stronger then having 2/2 old and new 2/2 set bonus
still it wil take a while with bad rng to get those set items for the bonus
