MMO-Champion has the new Bonescythe armor from WotLK Naxx 25-man. It’s very different than the old Naxx 25-Man Bonescythe (even without the sepia filter).

In addition, below is a comparison of how this new 25-man armor (5 pieces of Valorous Bonescythe + itemLevel 213 Boots, Belt and Wrist) matches up against the Slayer armor from Sunwell Plateau (all 8 pieces). I’m pretty impressed myself. I really should have compared it against SSC gear, but I was curious more how it would affect top end raiders.

Take note the difference in socket number and that in WotLK, gems are available for Haste, Expertise and Armor Penetration.

    Err, I’m presuming that you noticed that the old Slayer’s Armor is an 8-piece set whereas the new armor is a 5-piece set?

    Removing the 3 additional picees of Slayers gives the following stats (can’t provide %ages ATM):

    Armor: 2679 – 815 => 1864
    Agility: 290 – 86 => 204
    Stamina: 298 – 61 => 237
    Armor Penetration: 350
    Expertise Rating: 24 – 24 => 0
    Attack Power: 650 – 236 => 414
    Crit Rating: 130 – 29 => 101
    Haste Rating: 44 – 44 => 0
    Hit Rating: 124 – 76 => 48
    Sockets: 1Meta, 4 Yellow, 4 Blue, 0 Red

  2. @Andris: Good eye!

    Actually, I forgot to include in my notes that I included the itemLevel 213 Boots, Wrists and Belt that also drop in the raid dungeons as part of the new Bonescythe set.

    So, it is 8-pieces compared against 8-pieces.
