Archive for the ‘Gear List’ Category

Here is my Holy Paladin loot list for the 4.1 instances Zul’Gurub and Zul’Aman. I am really excited about running these new and improved dungeons.

There is going to be random boss encounters in Zul’Gurub so you never know what you’re in for when it comes to this one. I imagine its sort of like the TOC 2nd boss encounter Eadric and Paletress. Except there is going to be a ton more bosses to choose from and an achievement, Gurubashi Headhunter for everyone who sees all of them. “Gotta catch ‘em all” to get this one.

There is also going to be a new daily questing hub which I’m thinking will have fun stuff we can win with points, or badges, or commendations like the Argent Tourney. I would love it if this trinket was a quest hub reward but it’s much more likely especially because there is a heroic version that we will not see it until 4.2 Firelands Raid. It may not be BIS but its definitely a fun little proc.

So where this new gear isn’t too exciting for many of us, it does afford raiders like myself, who are too stubborn to run daily heroics and earn extra valor points to fill in the ilvl 346s with 353s.

Also if anyone has the skinny on Amani Battle Bear leave a comment. Will this model look better than its predecessor?  Will it be easier to get?

Trinkets have always been my favorite pieces of gear, with weapons being a close second. I love that you can’t always measure how good a trinket is by it’s ilvl. Like the Purified Onyxia Blood Talisman trinket for tanking. I used it right up untill Icecrown opened for business and I got my second 251 trinket. I always have collected trinkets.

In fact cleaning out my bank recently, I had trinkets dating back to Naxx that made me way too sentimental trying to delete. I could not bring myself to delete my Onxyia trinket. I didn’t have nearly as much trouble deleting my T10 gear as I did letting go of my trinket collection.

Trinkets are so much fun. I like being able to swap them out for different fights. I love being able to use different combinations to different effects and being able to macro them to other abilities. When are we going to get a legendary trinket? How cool would that be? C’mon Blizz please…

Anyway let’s go over what we have for trinkets available from regular raiding content and in a later post I may talk about the heroic versions. There’s a lot of debate over which are the best and I want to hear what the community at large is excited about adding to their trinket slots.

Here are the current options for ilvl 359 PvE healing trinkets and between you and me Mandala and Lifebound Alchemist Stone (not listed above) with their Mastery stat increase just are not an option. Right now Holy Paladin Mastery is just the crust in our stat pie with int, spirit, haste and crit being the ooey gooey goodness inside. You’re going to be better off using heroic dungeon trinkets over either of these.

Edit: With the change to Mandala in 4.0.6, this trinket becomes an easily accessible epic trinket worthwhile for holy paladins.

Jar of Ancient Remedies is probably my number one pick for trinket. I am going to be gunning for this pretty hard if it drops when we down Maloriak tonight. Not only does this  trinket provide more mp5 after the ramp up than any other trinket but can be used on a 2 minute Cd to give you back some sweet sweet mana. Bonus: can also be used to give a fellow healer or dps mana too! I have read that there is a bug where the USE function does not work unless you target yourself or an ally but this macro is a workaround

/cast [@player] Jar of Ancient Remedies

Tyrande’s Favorite Doll yields the next highest mp5 with the same int bonus as the rest of the trinkets. From what I read this trinket is very, very hard to farm and I haven’t been very good about working on my Archy. I don’t plan on having this trinket ever but if I did then it might clock in as second on my list.  Worth about 350mp5 for healers when used on the one minute Cd.

Darkmoon Card: Tsunami is a much more reasonable pick for a second trink slot. Unfortunately this trinket is not a drop so some people may not be able to afford it. If you’re not lucky enough to be able to make it yourself then you should definitely check out The Holy Paladin Blogs guide to getting it on the cheap. You can find it here. This beastly craftable can add an easy 260mp5 in a constant stream so nothing to think about just equip it and go. Amazing for Holy Pallies because it double procs with beacon and can proc all five stacks from light of dawn if you hit five targets.

Fall of Mortality has a variable proc rate of roughly about once every 60-90 seconds. This equals out to be about  298-198 mp5. This even at its minimum would be worth more mp5 than The Core, so don’t waste your valor points. If you don’t want to miss out on the int bonus from trinkets then leave out The Jar and use this along with Tsunami or The Doll

I would not advise wasting your valor points on The Core of Ripeness. It only results in about 195 mp5 when used on Cd. Only pick this up if you have so many extra valor points that you don’t know what to do with them and no other ilvl 359 epic PvE trinkets.

I’m pretty sure you can find this on a slew of other great sites, but I wanted to compile a list (mostly for my own sake) here at PnHS of the best in slot raid loot to date. Later I would like to get a list of entry level raiding gear for Cataclysm on the site so keep an eye out for that as well. Don’t forget that the same gear drops for both 10 and 25 man raids in Cata.
