Me (retpally) and my buddies (frostmage and restodruid) thought it would be fun to try arena a bit and been doing that for 4 weeks now. After a horrible start when we took the walk of shame (i.e. losing like mad) we're gearing up decently and starting to actually win some matches! But I have a few questions that some imba retpally with loads of skills and experience might be able to explain/answer?
1. Should I use the Titanium Razorplate or Furious chest? The first is ofcoz loads more offensive power but at the cost of a sh1load of res (I'll be at around 700 without the furious chest). What's the best pick if I can cover the 4-set Furious bonus with the other 4 items?
2. I still have a hell to decide trinkets to use (i'm not raiding any 25man pve so that gear is unobtainable for me), I am using the medallion-trinket for the res + get-out-of-jail-effect but what else? I've been going back and forth with the darkmoon cards (greatness and death) and kinda like the crit + 4k extra critdmg here and there from Death but the Greatness +90 str is pretty awesome too. Which one of these is the best pick or is there an even better option for a non-25-raider?
3. Which libram is most bang for the buck, the crusader-ap-increase one or the divine storm libram? Or something else that I completely overlooked? I'm currently running the Furious Crusader libram with 144 AP boost.
4. Simply, what res should I aim for so I know when to start stacking str like mad? Is 700-800 enough or do I have to push 1k?
Thanx in advance and flame me if needed!
