HoTs and DoTs: A Restoration Druid and Shadow Priest

Patch 3.2 Resto Druid Gear Guide: For the 25 Man Raider

The Argent Tournament Grounds

The Argent Tournament Grounds

OK, this post has been much harder to collate than I expected.  Blizzard have made this especially difficult considering they have the same items with different names for Horde & Alliance. They have also named items that drop from both normal and heroic versions of the Trial of the Crusader raid the same… but given them different stats arghhh!  To top this off items that have been data mined by MMO Champion, are not showing in Wowhead yet so its hard to get a full view of which items are best.

Instead of waiting for everything to be added properly, I’m still releasing this now, however will most likely edit the post with an update in a few weeks after all the bosses are unlocked to ensure the information is still accurate. For any Horde looking that this post, all the items I’ve listed are the Alliance versions – do not fear! You also have the same items available to you, the names are just slightly different.

Notes:

  • I’ve tried wherever possible to only include leather items. Some slots for example wrists & feet had an abysmal selection of decent items to choose from so I’ve added some cloth options also.  For a completely expanded list, check out my Loot Rank Template with weightings included!
  • I’ve included the Item Levels for each piece to try to help simplify everything considering many items have the same name.
  • For some slots the Balance tier gear actually ranks better than the Restoration pieces. I’ve not included these because I’m assuming trees will be aiming for the 4 piece bonus.
  • I’ve tried to only add 4 items per slot, however to ensure that the raiders out there who do 25s but don’t do Hard Modes still have an option, some slots will have 5 or 6 to choose from.
  • Items that aren’t yet showing in WowHead but have been data mined are linking to the MMO Champion Database.  Unfortunately you actually have to click on these links to view the item statistics.

    Hi, I have a question. Can you equip the same named item in its both version, normal and heroic? I mean, for example, Can i equip Solace of the Defeated from 25 man, and at the same time Solace of the Defeated from 25 man heroic?
