Hrm. That's quite a big armor boost to both armor sets but we end up losing 13 defence rating (which doesn't seem too bad) and 23 stamina (idk how much it'd be in direbear w/ hotw)

Someone was saying they were changing clefthoof and nerfing the stamina and i was going to cry, but they didnt mention the armor change with that armor boost makes up for the stamina loss

Wonder if they are updating the Gladitors stuff as well, armor wise since its pretty similar to T4

eerr wait...the T4 above that still lists sockets....but the clefthoof doesnt anymore...If thats that case it will be totally different

they also changed the stats on the other sets. big boosts to both regalia and rainment +dmg/heal while only minimal drop in stats. they also changed the sockets, making them both largely blue with some yellow and the meta.

Not sure why they felt the need to nerf the hit rating on the helm, but otherwise I like those changes...my biggest complaint about the tier feral sets was the spirit for the most part it doesn't help me very much especially if you're tanking...may as well ditch it and add other stuff.

I am loving this test change....on live servers, with no buffs, I am sitting at 14464 hit points / 19784 armor / 433 defense.

On test..I am now at 14714 hp / 24047 armor / 429 defense

Another change that no one has mention:

Earthwarden has 39 stamina on it now, makes up and more for all the stamina you just lost with Clefthoof, basically kills the Staff of Natural Fury market now too.

AH that looks really promessing :)

Keb, I guess you had some improvements to the CT profile you have, I have, give or take 1-2 pieces, the same kit and Im not near 14464 hit points, unbuffed. Think I have around 12.5 k

Yea..havent updated CT Profiles in a while, I changed my signature to my Armory link, pretty sure I logged out in bear gear.

Another small change that I like...

Shermanar Great-Ring
Binds when picked up
Unique
Finger
150 Armor <----now 195 armor
+33 Stamina
Requires Level 70
Equip: Increases defense rating by 20

This saves me farming 25 more badges to get the Unyielding ring.

cool, see that you have all stam on gems ... Ive choosen more agi, and hit to make sure I get the aggro. Then I lack some rings from Kara

How the H*** did you manage to socket 2 blue gems in Wastewalker gloves?! :thumbsup:

What do you mean, how? It was simple =P

YOu can put any color gem into any socket (not metas of course), you just don't get the bonus.

Kebster

Yea, what Falloraan said, socket color only matters if you want the bonus, generally sometimes you get better gems in sockets when the bonus isnt all that important.

On my healing set I have a few mismatch gems to meet the requirements of my meta gem.

Any word on whether or not they are removing gems from the Clefthoof set? I would assume not, though in Rudah's post the other gear has gems listed, Clefthoof does not.

And I would assume that any gems / patches that we have in or on existing pieces right now would stay the same. (Hoping the 30sta 10agi patch and 12sta gems dont disappear)

The gem sockets and bonuses haven't changed.

Earthwarden with 39 stam....I'm gonna be happy when the patch pushes :)

Kebster
04-27-2007, 11:17 PM
I will check again but I am pretty sure the defense rating is up a tad, 2 or 3 points as well with the stamina

Rorgg
04-30-2007, 09:10 PM
I think that's right, it goes from 24 to 26 Defense Rating.

Blizzard is still clueless about druids. Get rid of the damn crit rating and make it agility. We are not rogues.

Without sockets in the gloves or leggings of T4, there are still better peices out there, though with the new stats, I might actually wear four peices now to get the 4 peice bonus.
