Brutal talisman or belt

I'm up to a 1750 valor gear upgrade and not sure which is better to go for first.

I will hit revered with shado pan assault on Tuesday, and I'll be able to get the waist item (swordhook slingbelt.) I'd go from 502 to 522 there; it has one less gem slot than the one I have on now.

Or... from friendly there's the trinket, the brutal talisman. It has a str proc, static expertise. I hesitated on that one because I'd lose a lot of strength over the trink I have on now that would go (helmbreaker medallion).

Is the trink good? I see it highly rated. Or should I grab the belt?

I'm not getting hands, legs, chest in favor of set bonus pieces.

Get the trinket. It's much better than the one you have now.

What about the strength loss? Should I be concerned about that?

The trink procs a LOT.

It has enough uptime that you're likely to have a net dps gain. In addition, all those places that you've reforged haste, hit, or mastery into expertise...you can reforge most of them (if not all) into mastery...which be another dps boost.

Edit: personally, I have 790 right now so I'll be at 1790 after I cap next week. I'm planning on waiting and not getting any upgrades just yet, because I could get the gloves...but I don't want to get them and then get my tier gloves, one of the few T15 pieces that actually have a respectable amount of crit on them. So I'm going to try and wait and get the belt instead. And if I hard cap valor before reaching revered then I suppose I'll just bite the bullet and buy something 0.o

75 sec ICD

Best bet is to download simcraft and use the chardev to import both pieces/reforge. I would, but I am indisposed atm.

Off first glance, the trinket is probably better, as trinkets do a lot more for us than belts do. The belt is great, and I am using it for now, but I do have the trinket as well (not currently using it). Either way, you should see a big gain, and it does look like you can reforge out of some expertise to stay at the cap with the trinket, so it should be the better choice (just off of eyeballing it and not simming)

Buy the talisman and replace that horrble spark of fail. The 496 belt you have on is nicely itemized, so the bigger upgrade would definitely be the talisman.

And before you ask, I don't care that the i level on the feather is lower. The RF version is still much better than the spark as the spark is the worst trinket we can use current tier.

Get the trink, it will last you forever, or at least until you start doing heroics. I believe that its BiS 522 with ji kun's feather.
