So I've decided to review trinkets based on the types of queries people are finding my sight with. To date there is not a lot out there on the subject and I know whatever I post will generate some disagreement and hopefully some discussion.
As usual, I will compare tank trinkets separate from DPS trinkets and I will list my top 10 as found on WowHead. I will provide some qualitative insight into my rankings. I've done my best to account for On Use and Proc abilities in setting my weights but I haven't done extensive theory crafting on them, especially the procs.
For Tanking I've weighted Stamina and Defense highest with defense taking priority. Hit, Strength, Expertise, and Dodge are also highly rated but not as much as Stam and Def. Armor also gets a factor in this. For On Use effects I adjusted the value according to its maximum up time. Procs, I tried to see if I could get a sense of up time from the comments. Needless to say, some of these make the list on the basis of their mitigation while other make it based on threat.
Here are my Top 10 Tanking Trinkets. You can mouse over them for their details.
1. Repelling Charge - Thaddius Naxx 10
2. Essence of Gossamer - Hadronax Heroic AN
3. Figurine: Monarch Crab - Jewelcrafting 400
4. Indestructible Alchemist Stone - Alchemy 400
5. Darkmoon Card Greatness - Nobles Deck
6. Bandit's Insignia - Sapphiron Heroic Naxx
7 Defender's Code - Heroic Naxx
8. Grim Toll - Heroic Naxx
9. Seal of the Pantheon - Loken HoL Reg
10. Valor Medal of the First War - Emblem of Heroism vendor
For DPS I rated Hit the highest followed closely by STR and AP. Crit, Armor Pen, and Haste are included as well. Once again I tried to account for on use and proc effects.
Here are my Top 10 DPS
1. Fury of the Five Flights -Heroic Sartharion
2. Darkmoon Card: Greatness - Nobles Deck
3. Mirror of Truth - Emblem of Heroism vendor
4. Bandit's Insignia - Sapphiron Heroic Naxx
5. Incisor Fragment - King Dred Heroic Drak'Tharon
6. Mighty Alchemist's Stone - Alchemy 400
7. Grim Toll - Heroic Naxx
8. Figurine Emerald Boar - Jewelcrafting 400
9. Sphere of Red Dragon's Blood - Keristrasza Heroic Nexus
10. Loatheb's Shadow - Loatheb Naxx 10
I'm sure some of you have different opinions so let's hear them. All I ask is that you be kind to each other if the debates heat up.
