Pre-raid Resto Gear List

Part Six: Pre raid Gear List

This is a list of what I consider to be the top heroic level (iLevel 346) or similar items for each slot to prepare for raiding. Some are epic rep rewards, crafted or raid BoE drops and are therefore iLevel 359 but expect them to be very expensive.  As always, this is based on my healing style and such, if you think something I have listed as 3rd (or not even got) is best for you then it may well be, this is just a list of what I consider to be the best gear.

Unlike before, I have added Valor point gear to this list now, as it is so easy to get them. I have also included the items from the new vendors unlockable by doing the Firelands dailies, but I haven’t added the Avengers of Hyjal items as they are a raid only faction (e.g you can’t get the gear without raiding). It also doesn’t include the enw crafted stuff atm as it will be so expensive initially.

As it stands atm, the optimal gear from this list (NOT including profession specific stuff) should get you ready to hit the Firelands 🙂
