Last time we were in Ulduar, I managed to pick up this rather lovely staff. But wait, for all it's loveliness, it has no +hit on it. This rather sucks, because I'm a bit low on +hit. Even wasting 3 precious talent points on suppression I'm barely hit capped, and everyone says that hit capping is the best thing since slice'n dice'd murlocks.
So what to do? In the end, I went down to Usuri Brightcoin in the sewers. With the stench of Dalaran's ordure in my nostrils, I held my nose and converted all of my shiny Emblems of Conquest, and even a few of my gleaming Emblems of Triumph into 40 dowdy old Emblems of Valor. It hurt, I can tell you, but I got a pair of sturdy-looking boots which almost made up for the hit I was losing.
I'm saddened by the fact that looking like Putress will now take rather longer, but at least I'm nearly out of my crafted welfare epics. And I've now got 20K hit points. Yay for being less squishy. Only that dratted wand to lose now.
