GREAT thread...glad it was stickied...

For the relic/libram spot of Holy, i have Singed Plume of Aviana...its higher int, spr, and ilvl...also there's a heroic version from Avengers of Hyjal dailies thats ilvl 391, I believe...
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.
Looking over the Protection Sets, How come there isn't any belt section. Or am I Just blind?
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
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.

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

Hi!
I had to remove gemming due to character limitation Problems :-(

Hi!
The stats are:
Hit to cap (8.00%) > Expertise to cap (16 + GoSoT) > Mastery > Crit > Haste
Thumbs uppin a good guide
Great guide!

Thumbs up
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.
