    I believe the faction Shields were changed to require Revered (as opposed to Honored).

    Hey Polar if you want to use my list as well I would be happy to give it to you, as long as I get some credit for helping.

    I didn't even realize you were doing this too, lol. Just something I do on my own time at work. Hopefully you can use it in your post if you want.

    The way I did it was use MaxDPS.com - World of Warcraft Gear Rankings - News and apply a filter. The way we listed it is a bit different, I started with the level required to obtain the item, as that is usually the first thing I look at when scanning a list of possible leveling upgrades. Then when my eye catches that magic number/level I check out the item itself. Different but the same Also the list I made assumes one has the ZA and Badge gear already, so that is why some of the shields are not in there or other peices I think.

    My intention is to make it the easy-to-get guide for L80 entry-level raiding, not the "which gear to pick up along the way to L80 guide". To be honest, people are likely to burn from 71 to 80 pretty quickly so I don't not want to over-complicate the list too much with lower level items that are easily replaced at level 79 or 80. Those that want such lists can easily get the info from sites like lootrank.com or maxdps. (BTW I am the author of the lootrank.com site)

    Leave it with me - I will consider whether it is worth changing my guide into something else. In the meantime, don't throw your good work away!

    Good job, gives me a rough guideline and very helpful for what to look forward to!!

    Has the way you earn rep changed in WotLK? I thought I read somewhere you only earn rep at 80 by running instances while championing a particular tabert? I am trying to figure out how best to get Revered as quick as possible for tank loot.

    I would suggest that for an Orc Death Knight in particular (but indeed almost Death Knights probably, though for a Human, obvoiusly that Mace might be better because of their Racial) That the De-Raged Warax

    De-Raged Waraxe - Item - World of Warcraft

    is a very good 2 handed Tanking weapon for Pre-Naxx

    (edited for spelling)

    Great list, except that Paladins now want the same types of weapons as warriors; so we'd prefer the Fang of Truth or Blade of the Empty Void.

    Another good source of weapons is the quest Wanted: Ragemane's Flipper; any of the axe, mace or sword should be fairly nice, depending on racials and specific desired speeds and stats.

    In response to the Ragemane's Flipper quest, here is the mace:
    Hammer of Quiet Mourning - Item - World of Warcraft

    Quite compareable to Blade of the Empty Void - Item - World of Warcraft
    and easy to get at around level 75 or so. (Don't recall offhand which level it was I got it myself.)
