Now for my offspec I'm going fury, so now my question is: could anyone tell me what the best non-raiders gear is for fury or arms spec? Or is there a guide already? A short list would already be great!
I'll edit this response with gear I think you can get without raiding for fury. I need to review my own off spec set so this will be a useful exercise for me.
What gear do you have now?
Immediate 'get now' placeholders. Get these if you just dinged 80, and don't have piles of gold and emblems lying around waiting to be spent. At this stage, you should not be too proud to wear mail or leather. More armour is good for armoured to the teeth, but that's about it.
Changing Meta's where I think there's something that's better, but agree in general.

Shoulders: I disagree with Meta here. I think, with the limitation of just 245 or lower dungeon/crafted/emblem gear Wrynn's Shoulderplates of Conquest (45 triumph emblems) is better. You lose a little str/armor but trade hit for ArP (I just realized this, I’m going to go back and make the change for my off-spec). You’ll probably been well over 163 hit so you won’t need the 245 shoulders, the 232s will probably be better.
Finger: The Lady's Promise . Lady’s Promise from H HoR is probably going to be better itemized with the other gear choices than Bloodshed Band, giving you Expertise instead of hit, which you probably won’t need, but you could probably use a little more expertise.
