Decyphered Script: Trinkets

Parry! Dodge! Spin! has moved! This version of the blog is no longer being updated, but all posts and comments are over at the new location! Please go to for the new location!

Encrypted Text on WowInsider highlighted Ten Great Rogue Trinkets. I'm a bit envious that I didn't beat her to the post myself as I had been thinking about just such a thing.

While I'm not in 100% agreement with everything in it, it was pretty funny and hit most of the major trinkets.

We differ in that I use TrinketMenu to cycle through my "On Use" trinkets which she seemed not to prefer over the "On Hit" trinkets. Therefore, let me recommend two starting trinkets for Rogues: Bladefist's Breadth and Core of Ar'kelos. Both are rewards from readily available quests in the Outlands. Their "On Use" abilities get me to swap them out for the Bloodlust Brooch whenever it is down. In this way, I always have +200 AP when I want it most.

Core of Ar'kelos
Binds when picked up
Use: Increases your melee and ranged attack power by 200.  Effect lasts for 20 sec.
Equip: Increases attack power by 52.
Bladefist's Breadth
Binds when picked up
Equip: Improves critical strike rating by 26.
Use: Increases attack power by 200 for 15 sec.

I used this combo for a good long time. I'm still using the Core, along with the Hourglass of the Unraveller, until I can get the Abacus to drop in mech.
