T9 Non-Heroic BiS Picks

A discussion on WoW Ladies got me thinking about what my picks are for the current BiS list, not counting anything from either heroic version of the Coliseum.  It's a pretty complicated time for gear comparison, with drops from Onyxia competing with drops from 10 and 25 player versions of the Coliseum and the Crusader's Dragonscale crafted pieces.  Some of the itemization on T9 is lackluster, and compared with the itemization on things like the Dragonstalker Helm and the three sockets on the crafted chestpiece, it's easy to wonder if the 4-piece bonus is worth it.  So I worked up a few variations on gear sets both with and without the T9 4-piece bonus and then compared everything at Female Dwarf.
At least according to Zeherah's model (she's the huntress that runs the Female Dwarf site), the 4-piece comes out on top.  So, here's the gear list that I got the top results from:
I would be using the agility enchant on the boots and put a Glinting Flawless Ametrine in the yellow socket in the shoulders, as well as the standard Nightmare Tear in the blue socket of the pants, with otherwise standard enchants and Delicate Cardinal Rubies. Again, this is just the stuff you can get without any heroic versions of the raid, not the BiS gear from the entire tier of content.  The list of course changes once you start doing that, although there are still a couple pieces in it that will come from 10-person raids.
