Looks like a good guide, and a good update to MoP.

As someone who drew up my own lists and has been farming pretty intensely over the past week, I did notice one omission (pretty obvious why, if you armory me :-P) -

Soulrender Greatcloak from Thalnos in Scarlet Monastery is also very much a pre-raid prot cloak, and one I have sadly yet to see drop. >.<
Might I add, the neck from Klaxxi now only requires Honored Reputation.
Not sure if it's supposed to be honored now or not, I haven't checked.
:)
Disappointing.. I haven't played yet and was just looking through the gear to get a feel. All 3 helms and shoulders have the exact same design... I don't understand why Blizz can't give a little creativity between gear designs at high level

It's honored, got it yesterday with just dread wastes quests :) very nice neck too.
Impervious Carapace seems to be missing from the shield list for Protection.
Wondering why Mogu'Dar, Blade of the Thousand Slaves is not listed in the BiS for Retribution Paladins.
Very nice effort here and thank you for that.

My question is in regards to the weights you are assigning to stats in order to judge your gear list.
Are you working from a pure dps standpoint of str > hast > mast > crit?

I'm wondering because the gear I'm "aiming" for in heroics is ranked differently from that which you list. Still all the same gear but just in a diffrent order. I've been aiming for hit cap, exp cap, then str, haste, mast, crit with the goal of reforging only to improve hit/exp cap and depending on the gear moving mast and crit to haste when I can.

Thanks again. Great List
Not all of the tank items shown are optimal for their spot. Namely, anything that you can replace with Haste Mastery would be better.
For Retribution , you have wrongly placed Commanding Bracers and Binding of Broken Dreams under Chest pieces. :)

Ty for your comments :-D
The list is just ranked by item lvl.

Ups :-) ... fixed and ty!
Awesome guide. Bookmarking it for when I'm 90 as I plan on making this BE here my main toon. So, I'll definitely need the help getting all geared up.
Great stuff, however...don't know if it's been mentioned, but you can throw away your raiding tier for Holy and just go farm BG's if you want to be a top healer.
Cause the 4-set PvP is superior to even heroic tier.
Divine Purpose+Eternal FLame+ 4 set PvP means you can sustain 100k without a sweat.
70-80k with 4 set PvE, still have to manage mana.
Thank you for guide ...I received Durable Necklace of the Golden Lotus after doing the daily "the final power" Golden Lotus quest in the vale of Eternal Blosoms. Seems as if this ranks right up with suggestion for neckware...and the price is right 0 VP

Added all of them, thank you!
Riverbed Chestguard isn't listed under Ret Chestpieces, and it is very much a DPS chest if I'm not mistaken ;)

Drops from Wise Mari in Temple of the Jade Serpent.
This guide is very helpful for my holy pally so I gotta say thanks and sticky please
Awesome post and extremely useful for warriors and DKs as well :)
