I was wondering why there are dps gloves and tanking gloves but no healer plate gloves in the new 5 mans...(ie: End Time, Well of Eternity and Hour of Twilight) nor may I add in any of the quests. Any of the powers that be want to answer this please.

Please excuse me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't Treads of the Past be a better choice than Chrono Boots? Untill 102%, Mastery seems the way to go. As you can see with my gear, I'm still working on getting to that magical number. So although I just won the Chrono Boots, I think I may stick with the Treads for the Mastery.

Or am I off mark?

Bumping this thread, but I also want to point out that you don't have gemming for Ret...or am I just looking past it?

Hi guys, I know that MoP is releasing soon, and I didn't play through Cata. However I haven't played, and figured that I would start leveling up and hopefully see a couple months of content.

However, a little nervous about not knowing and bosses and gear, getting used to a new computer (keybinds + tuk UI).

I am wondering, what would you suggest, for gearing quick enough or suitable enough to tank through two or three, mid-level raids by the time MoP releases? What would be the best dungeon/RF progression (haven't seen RF yet), or BOE's.
(I noticed Justice points, BTW. are they still capped at 4k?)

Thanks!

So as of this newest patch are the best stats for a ret pally crit and haste? Ive been told that haste is unimportant when gearing a ret pally. Thanks for the help in advance!

First off: Thank you SO much for this list. I love pre-raid lists and feel they aren't out there enough.

Secondly: Sorry for the silly question, but I'm building a set of PVE gear to switch from my PVP set (I'm about halfway done) so I've missed out on key discussions regarding stats in PVE, and I wanted to know if these are listed in a desired descending order?

Mostly, I'm curious about the Holy trinkets.

I've always been using Core of Ripeness and DMC: Tsunami. I recently got the trinket out of Well of Eternity and switched out the DMC. But is Tyrande's Favorite Doll better than the Core of Ripeness? I ask because I DO have it, and just haven't found a place for it on a character yet.

Hi!
The belt section is the Waist section and the items are:
WAIST:
Girdle of Lost Heroes - End Time - All Echos
Girdle of the Indomitable Flame - Requires Avengers of Hyjal - Honored
Hardened Elementium Girdle - Blacksmith
Belt of the Ferocious Wolf - Exalted with Guardians of Hyjal "Reforge and Gemm correctly"
Coils of Hate - Zul'Gurub - High Priest Venoxis

Hi, you should use tanking boots for tanking and dps boots for dpsing... I believe :-D

Hi!
The stats are:
Hit to cap (8.00%) > Expertise to cap (16 + GoSoT) > Mastery > Crit > Haste

Hi the list is indeed very useful! I just wanted to ask why are the valor items omitted? (only the justice items are listed). Sorry if it's a stupid question just wondering!

No Ret gemming section? I didn't go through all the pages so don't send rage if you did already post.

Aye, I agree. I haven't yet seen whether you've posted any Ret gem ideas already, but I know they'd be on the front page if you had. I absolutely second a Ret gemming section, it would finish off what's an absolutely amazing one-stop guide to gearing up Pallys.

I´m sorry I had to remove the gemming section from Ret guide, I´m having character limitation problems :-(
I will open a ticket and try to ask for more space.
Pandaria is around the corner anyway :-D If they don´t remove this sticky I will update it.
