Ok everyone, I posted awhile back when I was lvl 63 or so and was told to repost when I hit 70 so here I am. I have bought into the "Faith in Felsteel" as you will see. I need a new chest and rings but most major componets are ok, I think, for a new 70. Any advice on where to go. Here is a link to my armory page http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Arygos&n=Fila# (http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Arygos&n=Fila)# I am so glad I found this site and you guys, and gals are the best. The ammount of information on this site is unreal :)

I'm going to go through each slot in list form and make suggestions for what you can get or change in that slot.

Helmet: Looks good. I see you don't have the rep for an enchant, so I'll move on.

Neck: Natasha's Battle Chain - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=31696) or Mark of the Ravenguard - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=29336) would be good. The first is from a soloable quest chain in Blade's Edge Mountains, the second is from a quest that gets you do complete Sethekk Halls. Both are easy to obtain. Strength of the Untamed - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=29173) is better but requires revered with the Cenarion Expedition. It's something to work towards though.

Cloak: Again, looking good. You could get Burnoose of Shifting Ages - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=27988) from BM though. I'd get a cheap 120 armour enchant or 12 def rating on it. You're uncrittable even with the Anticipation change now but you may drop below in the process of upgrading your gear.

Chest: Breastplate of the Warbringer - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=25819) from a Nagrand quest line, Jade-Skull Breastplate - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=28262) from the second boss of Mechanar or Vindicator's Hauberk - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=29127) from revered rep with the Aldor would be good. I listed them in ease to obtain as well (though you may have more luck with the second if you can't find a group to do the quest chain for the first).

Bracers: Yours are decent. Sha'tari Wrought Armguards - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=28167) would be an upgrade though. You get them from a quest that starts in Shattrath to go through Shadow Labyrinth and collect items. Very easy.

Gloves: Nothing much needs changing here. I'd get some kind of enchant or armour kit on them though.

Belt: Sha'tari Vindicator's Waistguard - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=31460) is from a quest chain that has you kill the last bosses of Botanica and Mechanar. There's a bit of stuff to be done before you can get that quest though.

Legs: Looking good here. Your next upgrade will be one of the following: Timewarden's Leggings - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=29184), Wrynn Dynasty Greaves - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=28621) or Sunguard Legplates - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=34940)

Boots: A lot of fresh 70 tanks use Sha'tari Wrought Greaves - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=28176) but I preferred Flesh Beast's Metal Greaves - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=29325) from the escort quest in Mana-Tombs instead. They lasted me until I got Boots of Elusion - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=30641) from Kara trash.

Rings: Wind Trader's Band - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=30006), Andormu's Tear - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=29323), Elementium Band of the Sentry - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=28407), Dath'Remar's Ring of Defense - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=28265), Protector's Mark of the Redemption - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=31078) are all good (though I personally don't like Andormu's Tear). Take any two of those that you can get first.

Trinkets: Dabiri's Enigma - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=30300), Argussian Compass - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=27770), Adamantine Figurine - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=27891). Any of those or the 51 stam Darkmoon cards would be good. The cards are getting much cheaper in the leadup to Wrath too.

Weapon: Crystalline Kopesh - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=25772), Crystalblade of the Draenei - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=31234). There are other choices available too.

Shield: Aegis of the Sunbird - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=28316), Platinum Shield of the Valorous - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=27887), Shield of the Wayward Footman - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=31200), Netherwing Protector's Shield - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=31490).

Ranged: Nightstrike - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=34783), Gyro-Balanced Khorium Destroyer - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=32756) or anything else you can find.

I hope this helps.

Edit: one more thing - hit up some instances! :)

The beauty of a forum/community like this is when someone takes the time to answer one person in detail such as Arrivan has right here. People like myself get to take full advantage of the information given.

So thank you in advance Arrivan, at this time my baby warrior is only level 66, but I will very soon be taking full advantage of this list to fill any gaps in my gear when I get to 70.

Even though I don't expect I'll ever get to complete the list it'll sure help me prepare for WotlK.

Thanks once again Arrivan and Tankspot too.

I just have to chime in on the Shattered Sun Offensive (SSO) items for tanks. Although you may not be ready to tank Magister's Terrace, you should do at least the island dailies to gain reputation for SSO. Some of the gear from their vendor is best you can get unless you raid Karazhan.

1H Sword
Inuuro's Blade - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=34672)

Very good shield
Dawnforged Defender - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=34676)

Great tank neck
Shattered Sun Pendant of Resolve - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=34680)

There's plenty of dps items there too so you really can't go wrong with it. That is if you have enough time to do the dailies each day. If you don't, it maybe better to just enjoy the game in what ever way you want, Wrath of the Lich King being so close and all.

Thanks Arrivan, that is exactly what I was looking for. I am planning to work on the quest for the chest right now in fact, and I was in MT and don't know how I forgot the quest for the boots. I am working on my SSO rep to get Inuuro's Blade as well. Tried a PUG for Heroic UB tonight and things did not go well so its back to the grind for gear.

Would the Glyph of the Gladiator from the SSO rep be a good Helm enchant?

No, Keepers of time or ZG helm enchant are the only helm enchants you will ever want to use.
