Strength of the Clefthoof – Set changes
WoWHead.com had 2.1 patch changes integrated into their item stats already. I just happened to notice the other day when I was poking around. Assuming they were correct (which could be a big assumption), I headed over to Leather Armor (second floor, next to the whips), to check out the much-discussed changes to the Strength of the Clefthoof set. I have this complete set equipped and it was very highly rated tanking equipment on Emmerald’s Bear Tanking gear list.
You can do the research yourself if you want to – follow the link to the set. WoWHead has the new stats already displayed in the tooltip and a nice set summary. If you click an individual item, there is a link you can hover over for a tooltip of previous stats.
If you just want to cut to the chase, then here’s the set total changes when 2.1 goes live:
- -12 to Defense
- -23 to Stamina
- +658 to Armor
So, I got to admit, I haven’t looked much into the whole Defense stat so I don’t know if -12 to that stat is a big deal or not. but gaining 658 Armor and only losing 23 Stamina sounds like a tradeoff I’m willing to make. That a positive increase of 3,290 armor in Bear form while only losing 230 health. I think I’ll take that.
Again – assuming WoWHead has correct data and these are the actual changes, how do you feel about this change? Good change or bad?
