    Well, I haven't seen any jewelry that would make me give up my LG set.
    I would love to get my hands on a couple of Bangle of Echoing Battle for the massive crit rate. I believe there's also a skirmish earring with similar stats to the Bangle. Dunno if I'd replace the LG piece with that but the RoF earring would go at least.

    Not very impressed by any of the rings. Going for the barter ring currently.

    Do you mean the "Battered Ring of Rohan"? Your LG rings are going to be better than that...

    I'm only using one LG set ring. The other ring I'm using is the purple from RoF, and the teal barter is a slight upgrade to that (as is the crafted ring, but I'd rather save my jeweler guild symbols for other items right now).

    I also don't understand why these 85 jewels are < 75 jewels from LG...

    Maybe i'll be able to get two earrings of wrath unleashed this time around. Those are probably the best dps ones given the way our class works.

    I've been passing on those as they seem more of a champ earring than a cappy earring. I've got my eyes on the earring with might, vit, and crit instead. Don't remember the name of it.

    I did get my hands on a Bangle, and I am loving the extra crit.

    Edit: Knight's Platinum Stud (http://lotro-wiki.com/index.php/Item...tud_(Level_85)) is the one I was thinking of.

    Earing - I am aiming for two knight's platinum stud earings. Have one, one more to go.
    Necklace - ToO clasp one is still the best
    Pocket - I think I am going to stay with Lg pocket, dwarf-silver flask is nice, but with two set bonus the LG set is a tad better.
    Bracelet - Easterling War Bracelet or bangle of echoing battle (I have one bangle, so whatever I win next is what I will roll with)
    Ring - Two LG rings, nothing out there much better.

    I am interested to see the next upgrade on the barter ring from RoR. Should be pretty nice once might is scaled up.

    Once I get everything I want I should be very close to 3000 might fully self buffed with very close to capped crit. Really looking forward to seeing the new ring, just hope it is not as rare and hard to get as the ToO clasp drop.

    Actually, I thought the clasp had a good drop rate. It'd be irritating when we'd go a few runs without one, but my raid group managed to pick up roughly 3-4 per person, so most of our alts all got clasps. Some got enough to waste them on the cloaks as well.

    In the beginning it was much more difficult to get the clasp. It wasn't until they nerfed it so you could do T2 and they improved the dropped rate to 50% in T1 chest that people were getting them. Unless the kin exploited it for T2

    Two Knight's Platinum Studs, Two Bangles. Lookin' for a Dwarf Silver Flask. All that crit, man.

    I really don't like the rings available, by and large. I've got a crafted and a barter ring, and I feel like maybe I oughta get a second crafted, but I don't feel like spending the money. Now, if I could get me an Uncommon Heroism ring from Rift, I'd jump on it; that's about 200 crit rating with each ring I couldn't get any other way.

    Nothing even tries to replace Iavasur.



    Basically, you'll gain net stats by replacing all the pieces of your LG jewelry. That's just how the math works. You will, however, lose tactical mastery if you do so to make gains in crit and other places.

    Nah, they shouldn't complain, even guards are gonna roll on that now. The knights stud is a better overall though, might for heals, crit for heals, and vit for staying alive longer. Like you say, I would get the knights stud before the wrath unleashed.

    On the bracelets I had one Easterling War Bracelet and one Bangle of echoing battle. I never could decide so I went with one of each. From what I hear our crit doesn't have as harsh a DR as mastery does so i'm leaning toward two bangles, plus DB does so much damage when it crits.

    Dwarf Silver Flask - Yeah I want that back too man. It's a shame you can only go for it once a week with only one skirm that drops it...attack at dawn.

    Anyone on Bullroarer? They apparently don't have a full itemisation pass ready for the current build, but I'm wondering if there's anything cool that is in there already, particularly associated with the new three-mans.

    I'd love to get a pair of Frost-Rimmed Bands (http://lotro-wiki.com/index.php/Item...and_(Level_85)) along with the all-crit setup tbh, so far none of the Might rings I've checked are any appealing to me at all...

    I kinda like the look of Gwillion's Ring instead of that actually. The max power portion is kind of irritating but it's got more might than vitality, and keeps the ICPR.

    There's a legendary for each instance group (Erebor and DG).

    DG is a HoH shield
    Erebor are LoM earrings

    It looks like most stuff for the heavies is focusing on the off builds.

    Happen to have any screenshots or more specific stats on any of the gear? (For any class, though my priority is the cappy stuff you just listed)

    Bear in mind that many of these are going to be different than what's shown:

    Gwil's ring is meh stat-wise imo.

    The shield is not only awesome for LoM but should be great for mounted combat, as well. Most other Might shields have half that much on them.

    I'm hoping the stats on that Exemplary Captain earring are temporary, though. They're identical to the teal one...

    Yeah, most of the gear is still a level 88 type gear (same stats as you'd find in ToO), and most of the legendary (orange) gear only has 7 stat slices, which is how many a teal is supposed to have. Some items have both problems going on at the same time. I'd wait for a build or two to see what the final gear is going to look like.

    That being said, the horse-lords bracelets look correct at least, and they look NICE. Hopefully I can pick up one of those instead of trying to hunt down a second Bangle.

    Earring : 1 plat stud + 1 LG cappy
    Amulet : Too Clasp
    Wrist : Bangle or Easterling x2
    Pocket LG cappy
    Ring : LG cappy + (lg tank or lg champ)

    Even with the new items seen on bullroarer with U9 there's a small chance to chage that setting, maybe just one ring
