Pre-Firelands BiS Restoration Shaman and more……..
It’s that time again! Firelands 4.2 patch is rapidly approaching, and much of the gear to come from it has been announced. So it has been tasked to the Extra Bag Space members to once again wake up our collective minds and come up with a list of the best in slot items for your Firelands to do lists! On today’s list, we have available Best in Slot lists for Retribution Paladin, Holy Paladin, Holy Priest, Destruction/Affliction Warlock, Feral Druid(Bear and Cat), and of course my own Restoration Shaman. All of our guides are put together, and posted in our public forums at www.extrabagspace.org. And I promise, they have Item Links!
As a focus going in to 4.2, Blizzard has seemed to put an emphasis on healers to focus on crit as a secondary stat. This seems to be even more so for resto shamans Daritos Food For Thought. With these changes in mind, I’ve weighed the BiS gear to:
Head: Erupting Volcanic Faceguard (Tier 12)/Crown of Flame – Ragnaros
Neck: Heartstone of Ryolith – Lord Rhyolith
Shoulders: Craterflame Spaulders – Alysrazor/Erupting Volcanic Mantle(Tier 12)
Back: Flowing Flamewrath Cloak – Avengers of Hyjal (Friendly): Upgraded via a Crystallized Firestone, dropped by Fireland bosses in heroic mode
Chest: Erupting Volcanic Tunic (Tier 12)
Wrist: Cauterizing Wristbands – Lord Rhyolith
Weapon: Hammer of the Firelord – Ragnaros/Dragonwrath, Terecgosa’s Rest: While the int on Dragonwrath makes this item incredible, even for healers despite the hit on it, this should still unquestionably go to casters first.
Shield: Ward of the Red Widow – Beth’tilac
Relic: Singed Plume of Aviana – 700 Valor Points: Upgraded via a Crystallized Firestone, dropped by Fireland bosses in heroic mode
Hands: Erupting Volcanic Handguards (Tier 12)
Waist: Girdle of the Flaming Foothold – Avengers of Hyjal (Honored): Upgraded via a Crystallized Firestone, dropped by Fireland bosses in heroic mode
Legs: Thoracic Flame Kilt – Beth’tilac/Erupting Volcanic Legwraps (Tier12)
Feet: Footwraps of Quenched Fire – Leatherworking Crafted/Treads of Implicit Obedience – Shannox
Rings: Quicksilver Signet of the Avengers -Avengers of Hyjal (Exalted)/Soothing Brimstone Circle 1250 Valor Points: Upgraded via a Crystallized Firestone, dropped by Fireland bosses in heroic mode
Trinkets: Jaws of Defeat – Majordomo Staghelm/Eye of Awareness – Alysrazor
