In my opinion, this is a nice belt. I'm assuming it's from Zul'aman, a 10 man instance in the
. The name and icon fit well with the troll-like theme.
(Perhaps) The brother of
Don Alejandro's Money Belt
Compared to the
Belt of Deep Shadow
, this belt gives:
1 Less Blue Socket
7 Less Agility
13 More Stamina
21 More Critical Strike Rating
18 Less Hit Rating
8 Less Attack Power
77 Armor Negation
You also save yourself from farming (or spending 3,500 gold):
2 Nether Vortex
4 Heavy Knothide Leather
10 Primal Shadow
2 Rune Thread
10 Primal Air
I'm very pleased that Blizzard is putting armor negation on more items now. It's a nice addition to the stats.
This drops from Nalorakk, the bear avatar in Zul'aman the new 10man instance in Patch 2.3.
This is part of the unofficial 2.3 Rogue set. As of the 15th October, the other pieces sharing the same skin/looks include:
Grimgrin Faceguard -
Shoulderpads of Dancing Blades -
Shadowtooth Trollskin Cuirass -
Bladeangel's Money Belt -
Trickster's Stickyfingers -
Shallow-grave Trousers -
Nyn'jah's Tabi Boots -
Merge them like Voltron, and look much, much cooler!
scroll down to the code in gear selection, calculate there what is best for your dps, and remember to use the right formulas for the right weapons.
and belt of deep shadows is better than this one, so if its a matter of wether u slack on getting mats or is too lazy to farm for best possible upgrades thats up to you :)
bladeangel's EP is 145 while don alejandro's is 209. an obvious improvement to alejandros but it is a the same EP as the scryer belt socrethar's girdle using elitist jerks formula.
you might but into consideration, that as a PvE rogue, you want +hit and this belt has none, exept the socket which can max give 8. Sure, belt of deep shadow is expensive to buy mats or timeconsuming to farm mats for, but its damn worth it. be4 I got it, I had girdle of treachery from kara chess event, which btw. also pwns this, as it has +hit too.... +hit is a must.
Hit > AP > crit <-- for PvE rogue.. ofc. the ap and crit depends on your specc, as sword rogue you want it in that order, as dagger or fist rogue you'd want Hit > Crit > AP
sure... armor reduction is nice, but 77?? common! totally worthless in PvE, even on trash, if we were talking 500ish and higher then it would be good...
you might call this karazhan 2 set. kara also has a set that drops off all the bosses there (colors mach n such... here the kara set is:
The Rogue/Feral items in Kara that go with the "set" are
and the above posts list is just another attempt to make an "ok PvE armor"
The last two posts are absolutely wrong. This belt is fantastic.
@Volbia: I don't know what AEP formula you are using but you're using it wrong if you think a quest reward can come close to this. The example you gave,
has less agi, less stam, less AP, and less hit/crit (almost = depending on the forumla) PLUS Bladeangel's has a socket and armor pen.
@Fallerup: There is a common misconception in the rogue community that Hit is some sort of super-stat that should be aquired no matter what the costs. The minimum hit 'requirement' for never missing special attacks is 64 with 5/5 precision and 142 without. Once you pass that threshold, hit is just a normal stat like crit and AP. That being said, this belt has overall better stats than the Kara/Crafted belt and should be used in their place reguardless of the fact it has crit instead of hit.
Another note is the armor penetration. Some Elitist Jerks math wizards have calculated boss armor for SSC bosses at 6,200, 7,200 and 8,400 armor. With 5 sunders, Faerie Fire, and Curse of Recklessness, Armor Penetration get increasingly better as lower armor % yields higher returns for armor pen. I'd also like to note that bosses seem to follow a pattern with their armor values, having only the 3 options, so armor pen is good from Kara to BT.
Anyone know what the reference is in the item name/description? Feel free to rate down when answered.
got that one yesterday.
My advice. Socket this thing with whatever you want. The +4AP bonus is one of the worst socket bonuses in the game and if you are dealing heavy damage you don't want to get near blue gems unless the bonus is worth it. I am a jewelcrafter so I am slamming the +12crit gem (Stone of Blades) in there since I am pretty good with hit anyway. +8 Hit is a good option or +10 Hit if your guild has a Jewelcrafter in Hyjal earning rep. As of today this item is a top 4 DPS belt in the entire game.
Yeah, I got this last night and was thinking about add +stam to it. I am feral druid and plan on using it for my tank and cat belt since I'm replacing the Veteran's Leather Belt with this. The bear mitigation page hasn't been updated but judging by the stats, that might not be a bad idea. Any suggestions?
If you are a Feral Druid I am a big fan of the Waistguard of the Great Beast instead of Bladeangel's belt. Its new patch 2.3 Heroic badge loot. Requires 60 Badges which are much easier to come by now and it stats benefit you much more than this belt. And if you are tanking you could even throw a +Dodge gem and +Stam into that one and do quite well for yourself. Since I am a rogue I am sticking with my Bladeangel.
just got this belt tonight on my feral druid =) i have the only rogue and druid in my guild so i kinda get and leather drops i want!
<~~Combat swords rogue...how do you think this belt stacks up to Gronn-Stitched Girdle from Gruul's? You lose a yellow socket and a few AP, but gain 25 agi and the armor ignore. Mostly PvE too.
I actually got this belt and i noticed a nice spike on my dps as well (Combat swords). yeah the socket bonus blows, plus the blue slot is pretty much asking for more hit since shifting nightseye (the only blue gem u should ever put in something) is wasted here. I had Gronn belt b4 this, so im happy
I dropped this but before this I had Belt of Deep Shadow for hit rating cap , with this item I dont know what to do, is that armor ignore effect good? and also what gem would I put into this? I lack both AP and Hit when I wear this one.
also good for hunters if your hit capped and dont need the H slabs belt
put a agi gem in it end of story
agi is better then AP anyday for a rogue unless u are pvp
