I've just taken a look through the loot in 3.3 (the discovered stuff anyway). Is anyone else drooling at the stats on some of the items?
Corroded Skeleton Key - WTB to replace my Yogg-10 trinket.
Harbingers Bone Band - Trash drop, and has perfect stats.
Boneguard Commanders Pauldrons - Just..... wow. Do want.
Legguards of Lost Hope - Wish i'd have noticed these before i got the 258 ones from TotGC25.
It's EU maintenance currently. I didn't honestly realise stats had been buffed so much. I didn't think they'd buff stats as much as they did between Ulduar and Trial of the Crusader, but they've gone several steps ahead in 3.3!
Those legs in particular. I'd much rather have those with the hit, than the 258 ones i've got with Expertise. I know it's higher ilvl, but i do imagine Jaraxxus Heroic is more difficult than Marrowgar normal (even if Jaraxxus is the easiest of the TotGC25 bosses).
I won't pull the "My precious epix are worth nothing now!" routine, but i am a little surprised they did this. On one hand, i'm a little disappointed that they've buffed the stats so much, but on the other hand, i'm really looking forward to seeing what sorta levels my stats will reach.
One thing i'm overjoyed at is the fact i won't have to put up with awful luck when it comes to a stam trinket. Currently, we've had 0 Heroic TotGC25 FC stam trinkets, a single Ignis25 stam trinket, 2 Yogg10 Stam trinkets, and 3-4 TotC25 normal FC stam trinkets. That's a total of 6-7 stamina trinkets, from over 7 months of farming total. I'm personally really happy they made one available that wasn't reliant on luck. It's 60 EoF's, so i'll be dropping the first 60 badges on that (another 73 stam in exchange for a not-so-great use effect is something i'm prepared to do).
What's everyone elses thoughts on the stat boosts they made in 3.3 gear?
