New in patch 2.3, purchasable for 60
Badge of Justice
At level 70, you gain 1% to your Parry Chance for every 23.6538461538462 of parry rating. This means you get about 1.2682% increased parry chance from the 30 parry rating on these gloves.
According to wowwiki (
), when a player or NPC parries, their next normal melee swing becomes a counter-attack sped up by as much as 50%.
Due to swing timer reductions, Parry receives it's greatest benefit from slower weapons where the net return from a Parry will be greater.
This is great for warriors and paladins wielding big 2 handers.
These are extremely good gloves. They're similar to the
Royal Gauntlets of Silvermoon
, but these only cost 60
Badges of Justice
. The gauntlets require that you kill Kael'thas. (A few times, seeming the drop rate is 9%).
The beauty about these is they have a blue (and red) socket, so you can stick a +12 stamina gem in one slot.
You'd think that Blizzard would've learned something from the Clefthoof Hide Leggings debacle... but I guess not because now we're repeating the same thing with these gauntlets, which share the same name as
these are actually far better tanking gloves then T5 imo :P gemmed with
Solid Star of Elune
they have way more stamina then T5. defence shouldn\`t be a problem if your SSC geared anyways, and parry and hitrating are 2 of the stats i lack the most when i tank tbh.
Looks like they used the same name for this item and
Funny how Blizzard decided to name two gloves the same thing.
I currently got both
and these. IMO if you do not have another piece of the Warbringer Set, you should stick with these. They have more stamina, more armor, and 2 sockets to play with. However, if you happen to pick up another set piece of the Warbringer Set I think that the set bonus of Blade Turning may outweight the benefits of these gloves alone.
As of patch 3.0, new stats are as follows.
21 parry rating
0 hit rating.
There's an 'unofficial' DPS and Tank set in Zul'Aman you can collect if you are looking for matching armor. Sadly it is not a tier set, but cosmetically these pieces go together.
Amani Mask of Death
Chain of Unleashed Rage
Pauldrons of Gruesome Fate
Bloodstained Elven Battlevest
If you want a fancy weapon to go with your set, this is the
Pauldrons of Stone Resolve
Girdle of the Protector
Bracers of the Ancient Phalanx
Sabatons of the Righteous Defender
Chestguard of the Stoic Guardian
A good weapon and shield to go with this set is
(if you want some cool extra effects)
Tiny Voodoo Mask
(your posse of voodoo gnomes)
(turns you red with rage!)
and of course neither of these sets are complete without your battle companion
. Happy farming ZA!
