Retribution Gear List 3.3 ed. > Chest

Welcome back to the Retribution Gear List.  Its back with a new format!  You can find the consolidated 3.3 gear list here.  There are new stats for 3.3 based on a revised Redcape Spreadsheet.

11 Titanium Razorplate Blacksmithing 245 547.66 547.66
12 Turalyon’s/Liadrin’s Battleplate of Triumph Tier 9.2 trophy + 75 Emblems of Triumph 245 529.98 529.98
13 Turalyon’s/Liadrin’s Battleplate of Conquest 50 Emblems of Triumph 232 473.16 473.16
14 Steelbreaker’s Embrace Iron Council 25 226 466.28 466.28
15 Chestplate of the Frostborn Hero Faction Champions 25 245 459.66 625.42

Also of note:

16 Frost Wyrm Ribcage Tyranus (Heroic) 232 454.62 454.62
25 Lost Reliquary Chestguard Devourer 219 323.4 489.16
26 Breastplate of the Imperial Joust Confessor/Eadric 200 309.4 416.92


For me this will be where I use a non-set item.  Despite the Armor Pen on the Castle-Breaker’s Battleplate its still a good option for 10 man raiders (I have a scoring system and it includes a value for ArP – where that value is good, its good – I’m not going to refuse to use ArP just for fun).  Hopefully I will replace this with the Heroic version of the Blade Scored Carapace I am currently using.  I thought, for a long time, about the Gendarme’s Cuirass which is very easy to obtain with a lot of hit, but I could not find good items to replace some of the other hit pieces I had chosen.

Pre-raid I would tend towards using this slot for a set item, as the 75 badge head is a good alternative to a set piece.  There is a crafted chest at the previous tier, but again it is ArP based and this time there is a better alternative available.

  1. Hi Morrighan: This chest piece analysis is really helpful. I’m getting close to 95 Frost emblems and have to choose between the lvl 264 Castle Breaker’s Battleplate or the lvl 251 Lightsworn Battleplate (which would give me the 4 piece +10% judgement damage bonus); unless I’m lucky with a drop and role in 25 ICC this week or next with a chest piece or a tier token. I should hit 95 emblems next Tuesday when the instances reset and we hit 25 man ICC for a fresh run. Sprectreis
