    Prot 4 piece plus?

    I checked tankspot and EJ an did not see an answer yet to which item is going to be the plus in our 4 piece plus. Right now it's the crafted chest or towering monstrosity Heroic (or so I understand)
    does the chest remain the plus? Or will it be a different slot this patch. Anyone know yet?

    Ehm, no.

    Right now if you're going for Prot 4xt9, either you're going for 4 part of ilvl258 T9, or you're doing it wrong.
    If you're going for 4 parts ilvl258, then the off part is not the chest, it's the legs.
    T9 legs suck horribly. Horribly. Did I mention they suck horribly?

    Maintankadin.com had the legs as the off-piece for 4pc T9.25+

    I'll agree the legs aren't great, but they had a damn load of hit, and i wish i could have the hit from those on these 258 non-set ones, instead of the damned expertise. I'm at 166 hit currently, and i do wish i had more (the amount of times Avengers Shield has missed is beyond the point of being funny). That's why i'm getting the gloves from T10 first (already got a token from 25-man Saurfang).
    They're threat legs, but with the heavy amount of defense on them, they had a good chunk of avoidance, which was balanced pretty evenly between the different stats. Looking at them doesn't give you an idea of how good they are, and it's only once you wear them that you realise they're pretty good.

    If you're really desperate for the prot 4p T9, you're doing something wrong. It's quite possibly one of the worst itemised sets to ever have been made (Yay for BV on 2 slots, expertise on another, and hit). I'd much rather work towards the 4p T10 set simply because the items in the set have stats we want. I did originally want T9 4P, but after seeing the stats all those months ago when 3.2 went live, i decided against it. The only place i'd have used it would be Algalon, and considering it's already possible for a Paladin to survive every Big Bang (Ardent Defender for 1, Divine Protection for 2, etc), there's no need for it.

    Well, I was talking about tier 10, I have 4 piece t9 245 ilevel. My guild is not to 25 heroics yet. I guess I was misinformed about the chest, but going forward what combination are you planning on using. Which slot will be non-t10?

    Shoulders. Simply because the non-set ones are BiS until the T10 277 (Heroic) ones. I believe the heroic version of the non-set ones are better than the Heroic t10 277 as well due to having an extra gem slot and comparable stats.

    Legs again, comparing the total list of everything available. The 4 piece is worth pursuing in every level of content.

    Re: Prot 4 piece plus?

    Thanks for the feedback, I am relatively new to the game(started my tankadin in April) and still have trouble when faced with options for 5 different slots. I can figure out what is better for rings/feet/belt/cloak but when you are trying to take the set bonus into consideration and which piece is best itemized for that slot versus which piece has this stat, and so all together this combo is best......well i get confused.

    Too bad there are only 4 total heroic quality guilds on Skywall-US. Only 1 has downed Anub 25HM, and 3 have downed twins. Anyways I don't have much ability to access HM loot because, while solid on normal 25 raids, my guild does not yet have the coordination to complete the HMs. Maybe we'll have it figured out by the time Arthas is available.

    Anyways, would you still go with Shoulders(chronalis) or legs(Offhand) if you took Heroic versions of the loot out of consideration? Or does the answer stay the same?
