View Full Version : Hunter Seemingly at a roadblock

09-08-2010, 09:22 AM

Since the highest raid that I can regularly attend is a non-heroic Icecrown Citadel, I don't really have many options to obtain equipment. Because of this, I don't have too many ways to really improve on my damage other than by purchasing Binds on Equipped items, which aren't really an option for me.

If it's possible, I'd appreciate any feedback on my current set-up.

I think you can find an upgrade to those ilvl 213 ice-pack striders. And your polearm. And your neck. And your trinkets.

So I'm a little confused here.

Well, I was expecting a more specific answer, like what I can get outside of 10-man Lower spire.

Currently hoping for a few items to drop like Whispering Fang Skull. And slowly working on getting Rock-steady Treads. Are there better stuff to aim for getting?

There's something that would be an upgrade in almost every slot. For example, for your boots, festergut 10 drops Taldron's Long-Neglected Boots (http://www.wowhead.com/item=50812). That's just one example. There's something off just about every boss in there that could be an upgrade for you -- just not necessarily BiS. It would be a little long to list out.

So are you saying that the only "easy" upgrades that I can obtain are from ICC?

If you are already getting into ICC on a regular basis without any hassle over your gear or DPS, quite frankly yes, ICC would be the easiest route. Not to mention all the frost emblems you can scoop up.

If you're having trouble getting a spot in ICC runs, then yes, you'll have to farm up some 232's from the ICC5-mans (although I see you have some of those already), run VoA for a lucky t10 drop, etc.

Come to think of it: if you aren't running voa10/25 every week, that's the easiest place to find an upgrade. Do that. ;)

In terms of upgrades that would drop from icc5-mans, all I can think of offhand is again your boots: Spiked Toestompers (http://www.wowhead.com/item=50295)

Alright, I guess I'll run some Halls of Reflection until I can get those boots, or until I can get enough gold to make a pair of Rock-steady treads. Thanks.

One other thing you can do: replace that PvP gear. Probably an easy way to do that would be run some ToC25, if you can. Definitely would be some upgrades there, just not as huge as ICC has.

Alright, I'll try to find a Toc25 within my schedule, thanks.

Is there any gemming or enchanting that I can change to improve my performance?
