These boots dropped for my guild last night. They dropp from the last optional boss in Karazhan named Nightbane, gl getting these.
These are the ONLY DPS Plate items that drop in Karazhan (Other than world drops and the random beast drops with lucky "Of the..." suffixes)
these are better for pure dps imo
These boots get some serious buff after the patch
Socket Bonus: +3 agility
125 more armor
3 more strength
7 more agility
6 more stamina
+3 strength as Socket Bonus instead of +3 agility
This is part of the Karazhan plate tanking set (graphics)
Bracers: Haven't found one yet. Attumen bracer is similar to t4 looks.
Belt: Haven't found this one either. Moroes belt matches t4.
It's the same model as the Lawbringer set, with new colors.
Has anyone noticed that the new socket bonus does not work? I still get the old +3 agility bonus instead of strength.
New artwork of red/black coloring of Obsidian Clodstompers.
Matches Tier 4 gear now as of 2.1.2 :)
Fel Leather Boots is still way better imo. Check em out if you wear clodstompers, really cheap to make too
well, since the Vindicator 'pvp-oriented' items are out, Kara now nothing really viable in the way of plate dps for warriors :|
on to ZA!
Socketed 8 str/8 crit rating, you gain 9 strength but lose .62% crit over vindicator's plate greaves.
Considering the armor and health you also gain with vindicator's, I'd go with vindicator's even for raid DPS, as HP is something you need too, especially for melee DPS who are prone to cleaves and all sorts of nasty goodies.
If you're fury or otherwise lacking hit, look to
Nyn'jah's Tabi Boots
. They are comparable to
mentioned above, and easy to obtain.
Edit: Sigh, I'm sick of real information being rated down while misinformation is rampant on the site.
Nyn'jah's Tabi Boots, despite being leather, are a direct upgrade between Ironstriders of Urgency and
Dreadboots of the Legion
For arms, Skullshatter Warboots or
Warboots of Obliteration
would be wiser choices if you are at or above 142 hit rating. For fury, a hit rating greater than 142 is not essential but still provides a DPS benefit. For arms warriors, any hit rating over 142 is wasted.
The reason I'm bringing this up is that these Ironstriders of Urgency are now outdated and comparatively more difficult to obtain than alternatives. 60 badges is a small price for such a nice upgrade and should be considered. Also note for the sake of simplicity I haven't taken into account the Precision talent.
