My toon is going to hit level 90 very soon and I am looking for gearing guides. Multiple sources point me to this guide, where it is stated that if I go the crafting route, I should get the Contender's gears, which are iLvl 450 pieces. There are several other guides also mentioned the Contender's gears.
Then I searched on the AH. Instead of the Contender's, I saw a lot of Crafted Dreadful gears that are iLvl 458 items and has better stats. It seems these are better than Contender's in all aspects as long as I can afford them.
I am looking to confirm if the gearing guides did not mention Crafted Dreadful gears because the guides are outdated, or there are hidden gotchas and I should still get the Contender's pieces?
