The dodge trinket is going to be better, but if you had to ask this, you probably need a better understanding of how to gear. Read Xayton's protection paladin guide in the paladin forums.

You shouldn't use the stam brewfest at all, not sure how the dodge one is, I haven't seen any math but almost certain its better than most non heroic trinkets
edit: to go on, stam stacking is fail outside of heroic raids in cata so most stam trinks are pretty weak outside of raiding

You should stack your Brewfest stamina trinkets in the bank. Or the nearest vendor.

The general paladin gearing plan is to aim for CTC coverage over stamina, so you'll probably want to bank those trinkets for the time being and use ones that better help you hit that cap. The Mirror of Broken images is a great one to start on.

The dude just hit 85. Two 365 stam trinkets are the best he's going to have for awhile.

Not true. The Brewfest dodge/dodge trinket is just as easy to get. And you can obtain the Mirror of Broken Images in less than a week. And these two are maybe the best two pre-Firelands trinkets.

You can also usually find an Impetuous Query on the auction house for 1000g or less depending on how the economy is on your server. That plus the dodge one is going to serve you a heck of a lot better than either brewfest stam trinket.

This. If you're a fresh 85, you're not doing firelands - you're running heroics to gear up and maybe working on T11 to snag some drops. Nothing in either of those sets of instances is going to gib you, and unlike DKs, paladins don't get mitigation from stamina - so health is largely irrelevant.

No you can't.


You get faction rep and commendations for all the daily quests. You can do 15 per day.
You get faction rep and 3 commendations for each battle victory. There are 9 battles per day.


It's not really that realistic to take part in 9 battles per day, but if you're managing to do all 15 quests per day and take part in 2 or 3 victories per day, you'll get the trinket in about a week.

If you're running heroics as a fresh 85 w/o being stacked for gear, there is a use for the extra stamina.

If you ran the Holiday dungeon enough to get BOTH +stam trinkets before you started doing the dungeons, there's no reason why you can't keep running the dungeons for the +dodge/dodge trinket. And then if you REALLY don't have any other trinket, then use the +stam in the other slot. But don't use two +stam trinkets from Brewfest. There's absolutely zero reason to. Absolutely zero reason.

And any 333 tanking trinket is better than the 365 +stam trinkets. Also, the JP trinket is better than the 365 +stam trinkets. So...yea....

please dont...

speaking as a healer in this case, i've already had some bad experiences with tanks in the Zalandars using 2x brewfest trinks. And yes, i know that A: the op is talking about norm heroics and B: its not just the trinket choices on those tanks... but it seems to be an indication of a greater problem with them when they want to stack 2x stam trinkets.

Get Brawler's Trophy, its good (reforge the dodge to mastery to make it better).

Go to the AH and plunk down a few hundred gold for an Impetuous Query


use those trinkets until you get enough TB done to get a Mirror of Broken Images to replace the query.

Mirror/trophy should see you into current content.

good luck

thats the only part i'd really doubt there...

Stam stacking is a bad idea.

But Bedrock Talisman is freaking horrid.



Seriously, get a query to pair with a trophy and go from there. Your healers will thank you.

You can do 15 per day.
There are 9 battles per day.

You are my hero. (For not saying 9 a day, 15 a day)

My thoughts exactly.

You can do 18 a day. The cell block that opens up after each battle is random.

I've looked and tried numerous times to try doing all 3 blocks in Tol Barad. Maybe it's just RNG on the days I attempt this, but I've never managed 18.


Also... you should be prioritizing Molten Front Daily quests. Do all the Molten Front daily quests, and then what's left over of the 25 per day should be spent doing Tol Barad. I think this limits you to doing only 10ish TB dailies per day at a certain point.
