    Always go for the highest ilvl weapon you can get. Cryptmaker is not as good as an agi based weapon, but it still beats any weapon with lower ilvl. So yes, go with hc cryptmaker. HC distant land is the one you will want in the end tho.

    Since you drop a lot of agi, moving you away from the crit cap, you can safely drop some hit rating as well to get a bit of agi back. Putting 10agi+10haste gems in all yellow sockets and moving the nightmare tear to the blue socket in your weapon, and filling the other sockets with 34/20 arpen should do the trick. You can safely put 20 agi enchant on your gloves as well. Lastly, since you're hit and arpen capped, black magic should be the best enchant for you.

    With arpen food you should end up at 1395 arpen, 170 hit rating and 144 expertise rating = 1.8% avoided attacks with a crit rating vs lvl83 of 68.4%.

    Grats on LK!

    I think you could optimize slightly by getting 1 more 34arpen gem and dropping 2x 20arpen gems, putting you at 1399. As well as dropping 10 expertise for 10hit, putting you at 126 expertise and 229 hit (think you need to go with 1x 10agi+10hit to get there). Other than that your gear looks great

    Being slightly below the caps is a bit annoying i guess, but it's still better than being over the caps and wasting stats.

    hey, was wondering if i could have some general advice on how to get the most out of my gear. my guild is only running 10mans at the moment so I'm having to make use of what's available.

    First of all, get berserking instead of mongoose, mongoose is no viable dps enchant anymore since the nerf. You got your nightmare tear in the prismatic socket in your belt, which makes little sense; you always want to put it in a blue socket with good socket bonus. So move it to the blue socket in your weapon. Since you aren't hitcapped, you should put icewalker enchant on your boots. Since you are getting pretty close to the crit cap as well, you aren't in any position to be gemming haste atm; go with 20hit in your +6 yellow sockets (chest, gloves, belt, legs), and 20arpen in all other sockets.

    Quite a few things that can be fixed:

    You're missing a cloak enchant, should be 22 agi. Gloves enchant should be 20 agi, boots enchant should be icewalker. Weapon enchant should be berserking if it isn't already.

    You shouln't be gemming 20haste gems yet; put 10agi+10haste gems in all your yellow sockets, and 34/20 arpen in all others (keep the nightmare tear where it is).

    Try to get rid of the mirror of truth asap, it's an awful trinket. needle-encrusted scorpion from FoS H is the best you can easily get, tho other good upgrades for it are a darkmoon card:greatness (agi), banner of victory, or the meteorite whetstone from UK H (blue trinket).

    If you got the emblems for it, get the T9 chest and gloves, the 2T9 bonus is quite good and will give you a nice dps boost until you can replace it with 4T10.

    thank you for the quick reply Mihir, and thank you for the enlightment, yes weapon enchant is beserking already, also you're doing an outstanding job for the cat community i praise you for that =)

    You're both over the hit-cap (assuming you get a draenei in your party) and over the expertise cap. And since hit/expertise never get to be 2x the value of agility or haste, it's better to go slightly below those caps and use those extra points on other stats. You also got icewalker which makes no sense when hitcapped :P

    Just keep icewalker, but move the 20arpen gem from the yellow socket in your belt to the red socket in your chest, and put 2x 10agi+10hit and 2x 10agi+10haste in the yellow sockets in your belt, legs, and weapon. Also change glove enchant to 20hit, and weapon enchant to black magic. Since you're hitcapped it pulls ahead of berserking, and mongoose is not worth using anymore since the haste nerf.

    That way you end up at 225 hit rating (5 below the hitcap) and still got 1400 arpen. Try to replace those boots asap, with the once from blood prince council 10man heroic, or marrowgar25 normal or heroic.

    Since you don't have crit rating on your weapon, you're quite a bit away from the crit cap still, so you could consider going a bit lower on hit and just gemming 4x 10agi+10haste gems.

    Assuming you got some emblems, buy a T9 helm and chest. Your gear score will go down but your dps will go up due to the 2T9 bonus.

    You seem to be ignoring pretty much all socketbonuses, this is not a good idea. The bonus in your helm should always be taken, since it only takes 1 nonred gem to activate; +6 bonuses with at least 1 red socket should generally also be taken.

    Move the nightmare tear to the blue socket in your legs, put 10agi+10haste gems in the yellow sockets in your helm/cloak/chest/weapon/legs/boots/ring, and 20arpen in the remaining sockets.

    Get rid of the Victor's Call trinket asap, it's worse than some blue trinkets. Some easy to get trinkets to replace it with are:

    Darkmoon Card: Greatness-agi from the AH - +192 dps
    Banner of Victory from ToC5 normal - +169 dps
    Mirror of Truth from heroism emblems - +95 dps
    Meteorite Whetstone (blue) from UK H - +93 dps
    Incisor Fragment (blue) from DTK H - +66 dps
    Darkmoon Card: Death from the AH - +48 dps

    Of course, this is also bad for your gear score. So keep victor's call around for that purpose.

    Use your frost emblems to get more pieces of T10; the 4T10 bonus is a huge dps boost. The next piece to get is the T10 helm, and after that the T10 chest. When you switch to the T10 helm, buy some T9 shoulders so you keep the 2T9 bonus, and then when you got enough emblems for the T10 chest, switch back to your T10 shoulders.

    Thanks a lot Mihir, I'll get right on that. Sometimes we actually run short on spacegoats, but usually I can convince the RL to move me into a group with one. As for the boots...the stupid things won't drop for me in heroic 10m or 25 reg or heroic..believe me..its the biggest gear change I want atm, lol. Thanks for your time and help! =D

    Thanks for your quick response, much appreciated. A couple of things:
    I forgot to mention that i have T10 251 legs, i doubt these would be better than me 264 legs, but i thought i'd better mention it.
    If i followed what you say and changed gems to fit some socket bonuses, i would go below the arpen softcap, is this still a good idea?
    I've been told Victor's Call is bad for Ferals, thanks, i'll try and get banner of victory; also i have 40 frosts atm, should i get the War Token trinket? or save for some T10?

    Thanks again,
    -Tim.

    Softcap isn't that important (yet) that you should ignore socket bonuses for it.

    Since you already got the T10 legs, you can hold off buying the T10 chest i guess.. tho going with your current non-set legs + 4T10 is the setup you want to be rolling with eventually. Getting 4T10 is your top priority in any case.

    Best way to proceed (if you got some gold) is to buy a DMC:G and get the T10 helm with your emblems, and after that the frost emblem belt.

    Looks good, one things tho: it's better to be below the arpen cap than above it. 1 or 2 points above it can still be acceptable, but 5 points above it means 5 of your stat points are doing nothing at all, as well as missing a +6 agi socket bonus. So it's 15 arpen vs 20 hit and 6 agi. Which is a clear advantage for the 20hit+6agi. So replace the 20arpen gem in the yellow socket in your gloves with a 20hit one.

    You could switch your weapon enchant to black magic for a slight dps boost on single target, but atm it's only a tiny dps increase (in the order of 5 dps). But when you get a bit more hit/expertise it will start pulling ahead more.

    Hello Mihir, Feel free to give it to me straight with no sugar coating. I have access to 11/12 10 man, heroic Lady Death and GS (its the alt run til I gear him up for main grp) and 25 man i see 8/12 so far but we just hooked up with anther good 10 man guild on the server so 11/12 should be pretty doable this week. I have 91 frost badges atm, going for 4 pc minus hands asap. I am pretty much on the Arp soft cap for my trinket, I was going to keep gemming for arp to get to the hardcap and hopefully get some new trinkets by then. Oh yea, the wrist and belt are gemmed the way they are because I got them before I was at 50% crit, should I regem for arp or just wait for replacements?

    Thanks for your time in advance.

    Thanks man - I have regemmed/enchanted everything as you suggested - will be going 11/12 ICC25 tonight, I'm curious to see how my DPS improve

    I'm in line to get a token or two tonight, I currently have i264 helmet but i251 chest, legs and shoulders - was wondering what would be the upgrade order for those 3 items?

    Thanks again
