I love my 10 man group.

So one week after our first Heroic 10 man ToC run we get A Tribute to Mad Skill (10 player). We had 48 attempts left and 1 wipe was on the faction champs due to a DC… so honestly we should have done it with 49 attempts left. The 1 legit wipe was on Anub and can be attributed to just a simple OT mistake that most likely won’t happen again. Remove that and a couple sloppy kills at the beginning that were kinda close… (I was still wearing my Chef’s Hat for the Factions Beasts and Jaraxxus.) and we should get the A Tribute to Insanity (10 player) achievement as well. We were so close to wiping on Jaraxxus we got Three Sixty Pain Spike (10 player) purely by accident.

Again, I had a total blast running 10 man. It is a lot of fun running with a tight knit group that doesn’t fail… now they need an achievement for downing all the ToC bosses while wearing the Chef’s Hat. I would have gotten the normal mode ToC 10 version of that achievement last night. Clearing normal ToC 10 in 30 minutes while wearing the Chef’s Hat is just pure win. All in all we cleared both Normal and Heroic ToC 10 in under 2 hours… not a bad use of time at all.

My latest dilemma is what to do with all these Emblems of Triumph… I have close to 200 now. I think I am going to use a trophy for the T9.25 helm and dabble with 2T8 and 4T9 bonus. I know people don’t like the 4T9 bonus but what is there not to like about +5% crit to rip?

    Heh – my reader cut off the lessthan sign.

    The reason you don’t want 4pT9 is simply that you have to get suboptimal gear to get the bonus, and 5% rip isn’t worth it. The crafted chest is much better than the tier chest assuming you’re below the hit cap, the gloves and legs and chest you can get from heroic 10-man are all better than the tier pieces (and the gloves are BiS for cats overall).

    If you haven’t already, I’d consider getting the Bracers of Swift Death crafted. That’s an easy win and will cost you 60 emblems. Otherwise, I’d just try and sell as many as you can via crusader orbs or replace any Ulduar/232 gear you have with tier gear.

    I wish I had that problem- it took me 2 weeks of daily heroics and weekly 25 mans to collect enough triumph badges for my second piece of t9 gear.

    @Kai – My reader did the same thing… going to fix that. Yeah, I get the 4T9 thing… for now I am going to go with 2T9 using the 245 items in head and legs slot, since I have the legs already and go with Chest and gloves 2T8 until I get the higher Ilvl non set pieces.

    I will most likely get the bracers soon once I have determined there is nothing else I want to spend Triumph Emblems on, they just don’t seem like a huge upgrade over my Hard XT 10 bracers.

    @Euri – :(

    I don’t like the 4t9 bonus either, but sooner or later I’ll have to let go of 2t8. So 2t9 and (great) non set pieces seems to be the best option.
