[Druid] Level 80, Pre-Heroic gear for Bears and Trees

Postby sherck » Tue May 18, 2010 9:30 am

Just throwing this out since I know there are a number of people leveling Druids on the MTankadinservers.

My 2 cents is that I am not going to use a ton of gold on this guy since he will probably only hit 80 a month or two before Cata drops and will probably only be running Heroics and low level raids for weekly.

Primary concern was to limit the gear to quested gear, BoE available on AH for pretty cheap or Item Level 200/213 crafted gear that only used Frozen Orbs and lower level mats so they are not that expensive. You can obviously upgrade every slot pre-raid but these will get you just fine in Heroics.

My goal was to be able to drop this gear on the MINUTE my Druid hits level 80 so all of it is available either prior to level 80 or is BoE and can be equipped within the first minute of dinging.

[NOTE = The Tree set is woefully lacking in Haste and is pretty heavy in Spirit since I am anticipating still being in much of this gear when the 4.0 stat changes hit and healers need Spirit]

Yeah, I know I "cheat" on the trinkets by being a JC but I took him JC pretty much solely because the tanking trinkets at 80 SUCK until you run Heroics.

Cheers,
sherck

That's pretty cool. I took a few of your items listed as a mental note for while i'm leveling up (like the venture coin purchase) since my alt is already 70.

I'm currently boomkin / tree while leveling and some of that tree stuff will help out.

I probably mention this a lot, but if you have a lot of Stone Keeper Shards to turn in for BoA honor tokens, or level mostly through pvp, many of the pvp pieces are huge upgrades over the Ilvl 187/200 crafted gear. I'd strongly suggest picking up some of the wrathful offset pieces (neck/ring/cloak), the 251 WG shoulders (you can start doing WG at 75), and maybe even the relentless belt/boots (my starter set was stupidly high on hit, making the 226 crafted pieces unattractive). Also, despite the cost, I'd really reccomend looking at the 245 crafted chest/wrists for both sets. They may cost a bit more, but will see you into ICC.

I'll try to link the other discussion thread for you when I find it.

EDIT: http://maintankadin.failsafedesign.com/ ... =viewtopic should have some of the info you're looking for.

Not after you tried to tell me that agility for bear tanks is a threat stat only.
