II. Compare by Slot / BiS

For the average player, I recommend using +spirit items in as many spots as possible, at least until you get some epics.

BiS key:
BiS = Obviously Best in Slot, Choose this one!
no spirit = there is no spirit on this item.
+stat = this stat is on this item! yay! (used mostly for non-spirit items or when there are options)
++stat = there is a lot of this stat on this item! yay! (used mostly for non-spirit items or when there are options)
max spirit = This item has a large amount of spirit on it, but may be dipping out of other stats at the cost, this includes dipping out of intellect.
Because spirit will be very important early on, many items are just listed as BiS instead of BiS + spirit, however I always list a BiS no spirit item for those who are daring enough to dip out of spirit.

Chances are it'll be buried in 5 months. :( My own pre-existing gear guide will also be available and, with any attention from Blizzard, already stickied.

Edit: Added a frowny face so people stop thinking this is some super serious attack post.

You're doing a guide too? That's awesome ^_^ oh but if you do make sure you start reforging correctly because people will look at your gear and think you don't know what you're doing haha can't have that =P people are so judgmental


Actually, I already have a guide created; as soon as the content is relevant, I'll swap the Cata information for MoP stuff.

You should also pay attention to the last time this toon raided. I've been using her as a reforge testmule. Thanks for your "concern" though. I'll be sure to log on later and reforge just for you.

So adorable.

And a seminal work even.

(Surely all else is merely derivative.)

NEEDs a sticky.

For pity's sake.

God forbid someone try to contribute anything to this forum.


I just spoke the truth: between now and mop, this thread will probably be buried. Also a pre-existing thread will hopefully be stickied.

Don't get me wrong. It's great to have the info, but it's months early and will likely have gone poof by the time it's relevant.

One post 5 months from now when it's more relevant will bring it back up to the top, doesn't seem like much of a problem. The only issue is if a sticky is already pre-arranged for a different thread.

One post 5 months from now if the post is maintained, yes (since it's likely tweaks will be made to both the spec *and* the gear between now and then, making what is posted here inaccurate).
