I'm wondering - are the stats sought for pre-raid gear the same for the stats sought for pre-heroic gear? I'm enchance, and I'm looking at doing heroics, but I'm pretty sure my gear isn't quite up to par yet. Where can I get gear to prep me? Rep rewards? Dungeons? Which ones? Couldn't find a solid answer to the question, so figured I'd post.
Here's a link to my character:
A side note: I already did H HoL with a group and did bearable DPS, but I was definitely at the bottom of the totem pole.
Clicked on your character but right now wow is having maintainance and I can see your toon.
What your really want to stack up on is +hit expertise agi intel crit.... and mostly in that order. There are a couple crafted pieces with leatherworking that you could use to start, lvl 78 bracer and other pieces. You could use honor points for some PvP based melee gear, they do have some with +hit.
When I started making an off set for enhance, i got the trinket from H vh. I know your not into heroics yet, but it's a good starter as it has about 73hit and click to use spell damage. The hit on that trinket will do wonders.
Damn I wish the link to your toon worked right now or I'd actually see your character.
i levelled 68-80 as ele, and went through heroics as ele as well. so i'm not sure if this applies to enhance :
if you gear up in blue's from reg. dungeons, you can start out in heroics with bearable dps. anything above 1k is bearable. 1.5k is considered standard for a heroic and 2k+ is good
imo, unless your wearing all quest greens, your gear cant not be up to par for heroics, if you know how to play your class.
rather than spend time gearing up for heroics, i reccomend just diving right in, low dps might hurt your ego now, but you'll gear up, and get into naxx alot faster.
try and get the emblem of heroism melee dps trinket (mirror of something) and pride, from HCoS they'll improve your dps a lot.
Yeah, I thought about just diving right in myself. My guild is raiding 10 man Naxx sometime soon, which isn't really a heroic, but from what I understand it doesn't sound that hard? I don't know, I might give it a shot. Like I said, I already did H HoL and had bearable DPS, but I did forget to mention that all the gear I got was all elemental, which is great since I plan to make that my raiding spec.
Please, please don't do heroics if you can't do more than 1000 dps.
A link like this could help you with your shopping list:
Keep in mind the scoring here is if you are under the spell-hit cap. If you can get near hit and expertise caps in pre-heroic gear you could revalue those stats like this:
Caveat, these are all using Wowhead's Enhancement preset item weights, however, you could get EP weights tailored to your shaman using the simulator.
Edit to add: Notice there aren't any greens there -- don't do heroics in greens unless it's just one and it's this one:
(until you have badges to get the mirror of truth, as suggested above). I say this not as a shaman but as a tank. Bad dps can make heroics like Violet Hold very unpleasant, enough so that people will just abandon the effort.
