*Gormok’s Band is the Heroic version of Carnivorous Band as far as I can tell.  Confusing!

RIngs are a complicated lot. They are a great slot to consider for hit gear. Pre-raid you have a few options. There is the Inscribed Ring of the Kirin Tor to consider. Bad side – 8500G. Good side – for about 1000G a patch you can upgrade it to keep it current. If you have a lot of cash consider it, otherwise I’d pass in favor of Ring of Invincibility and Uruka’s Band of Zeal.

I’m raiding with Strength of the Automaton and the Crazed Construct Ring. Theres a couple of other nice rings in Ulduar – Blade Bearer’s Signet and Sif’s Promise, both of which I could work into my gear if they dropped. Long term, I decided to use these as hit slots. Therefore I’m targetting the Planestalker Signet in either flavour and the Bloodshed Band. The hit scores of these are both high. If I find myself on Algalon 10 I’d love a Seal of the Betrayed King, but as of the time of publishing I’ve only done Thorim and Hodir on hard mode in 10 man (though my guild has Freya and Iron Council also).
