Like NetStormer says, get the Triumph Idol first. After that, I disagree with him a bit.
Once you have that, just start replacing your gear with T9 pieces. I'd start with largest iLvl gap first, then work your way to the smallest.
I'd probably actually start with the helm
first, since you don't have a meta slot. Then focus on replacing pieces that have Crit where the T9 has haste (like the Shoulders
) since haste will help more than crit. Then pick up either the gloves
or the chest
to get your four pieces bonus. Which one you pick should depend on what your non-set options for that slot look like. If you're planning to buy the last item with Frost Emblems, I suggest getting the T9 gloves and picking up Vestments of Spruce and Fir
as that's a better combo than the T9 chest and Gloves of the Great Horned Owl
If you don't plan on raiding ICC anytime soon, save your Frost emblems for the cloak, and then do with them as you please (saving up for t10 pieces or making money with Primordial Saronite). The frost emblem cloaks are absolutely HUGE!
Personally, I don't think either Drape of the Violet Tower
or Volde's Cloak of the Night Sky
is a very good back piece for Resto Druids due to their lack of haste. You'd be better off buying the Cloak of Kea Feathers
and saving your frost emblems for better itemized pieces.
Personally, I saved up my frost emblems to get Vestment of Spruce and Fir
but Circle of Ossus
is also a pretty darn good piece (and I'll probably be going for that next). Purified Lunar Dust
is pretty decent too if you can't get your hands on good trinkets in another way.
