Pre-Heroic Resto Shammy Gear
For those looking for decent pre-herioc, here's a list of equipment to shoot for (pardon the sloppiness of the list):
Location | Name | Dropped By
Back | Azureborne Cloak | Grim Batol (Shadowburner)
Chest | Twilight Scale Chestguard | Leatherworker
Feet | Earthmender's Boots | Exalted Rep (Earthen Ring)
Hands | Ionic Gloves | Tol'vir (General Husam)
Head | Helm of the Skyborne | Honored Rep (Wildhammer)
Legs | Wilderness Legguards | Revered Rep (Hyjal)
Neck | Lightning Flash Pendant | Exalted Rep (Wildhammer)
Ring 1 | Diamant's Ring of Temperance | Revered Rep (Thearzane)
Ring 2 | Ring of Warring Elements | Jewelcrafter
Shield | Zora's Ward | Tol'vir (Siamat)
Shield | Shield of the Mists | Justice Point Vendor
Shoulders | Seafoam Mantle | Justice Point Vendor
Trinket 1 | Blood of Isiset | Halls of Origination (Isiset)
Trinket 2 | Gale of Shadows | Grim Batol (Erudax)
Waist | Stormleather Sash | Leatherworker
Weapon | Scepter of Power | Halls of Origination (Setesh)
Wrist | Bracers of the Lost City | Quest Drop (Tol'vir)
A couple of quick notes:
- There are no good shoulders in the instances or professions. Spend your Justice Points on a set of shoulders first. By the time you reach 85 you've probably earned enough to get the shoulders. If not, build up JPs while farming instances for other peices.
- Zora's Ward is a nice shield, but I had enough JPs left from Lich King that I just bought the Shield of Mists (only 950 JPs).
- As was the case in LK, profession made gear is pretty close to best-in-slot. You won't get better on some pieces until you start spending Valor points. However, the mats are really expensive right now, so you'll have to fill in with some instance gear until you can afford them.
