Badjers of Justice

Badges of Justice, the new economy will be here soon. Pokemon… gotta catch ’em all fever is nearly here. Patch 2.4 is coming soon, the download is already upon us all. So I ask ye of little hope, what benefits are you going to first grab up?

For the enhancement shaman, I wholeheartedly look forward to the the Vanir’s Right Fist of Brutality for a main-hand upgrade. Right?

Based on my little poor-man’s EJ calculations my current Dragonstrike main-hand weapon value for enhancement shamans is 970.1 EP. The Vanir’s Right Fist of Pwnage! is more than a tier upgrade at 1015.4 EP. Heck, the Big Bad Wolf’s Paw (834.6) to Decapitator (912.8) upgrade is 78.2 EP points. The Vanir’s Right Fist of Brutality (1015.4) vs. Dragonstrike (970.1) is a whopping 45 EP points. Ohh. That’s not too much of a change.

Ouch. I was hoping for more when cashing in my Badger tokens. 105 BoJ for a 45 EP upgrade. Hmmm. An upgrade is an upgrade, isn’t it?

    Trousers of the Scryers’ Retainer – 100
    Scaled Drakeskin Chestguard – 100
    Tunic of the Dark Hour – 100

    I won’t purchase either chest if the Bloodsea Brigand’s Vest drops off FLK.

    Gauntlets of Rapidity – 75
    Angelista’s Revenge – 60

    All other badges I’m collecting until the vendor is available will go towards epic gems.

    I’m all about burst dps, so I calculate the enhancement value based on some theorycrafting from …
    http://elitistjerks.com/f31/t13297-enhance_shaman_collected_works_theorycraft_vol_1

    Just using poor man’s EJ calc (and I’ll use the Middle Road itemization – stat weights):

    EP = +AttackPower * 1.0
    + +Strength * 2.2 (w/blessing of kings)
    + +Agility * 2.0 (w/blessing of kings)
    + +CritRating * 2
    + +HitRating * 1.4
    + +HasteRating * 1.48
    + +ArmorPenetration * 0.28


    Scaled Drakeskin Chestguard – 100 badges

    & Yellow Socket getting +4 Str, +4 Crit from [Inscribed Noble Topaz]
    & +6 All Stats Enchant

    Scaled Drakeskin Chestguard EP = +AttackPower [(102+4+6) * 1.0]
    + +Strength [(4+6) * 2.2]
    + +Agility [(47+6) * 2.0]
    + +CritRating [4 * 2.0]
    + +HitRating [0 * 1.4]
    + +HasteRating [25 * 1.48]
    + +ArmorPenetration [0 * 0.28]

    Scaled Drakeskin Chestguard EP = 112.0
    + 22
    + 106
    + 8
    + 0
    + 37
    + 0

    Scaled Drakeskin Chestguard EP = 285

    I’ll let you compute the values of the other badge rewards and post back here when you are done!

    Using my values from Yo’s simulator, Tunic of the Dark Hour is the clear winner. I don’t like using the vanilla numbers on EJ’s.

    Good point Automatica.

    I do also tweak my values to get the best output that I feel is possible along with some survival as well.

    Curious: What numbers do you use?

    Something like this: ?

    Agility 1.7
    Strength 2.2
    Melee Critical 1.8
    Melee Hit 1.5
    Attack Power 1
    Expertise 3.18
    Haste 1.6
    Ignore Armor 0.39

    I wanna see how my sim works with your numbers.

  5. 5 Automatica April 3, 2008 at 3:25 pm

    Agi 1.33
    Str 2.2
    Crit 1.5
    Hit 1.43
    AP 1
    Exp 2.37
    Hst 1.5
    A/P .19
