MoP Pre-raid Resto Druid Gear

Mists of Pandaria is just 6 weeks away. Here’s a list of the level 90 gear that is available to you outside of raids. I have only included gear which is ilvl 450 or higher, so it includes gear from heroic dungeons, reputation and crafting.

I’ve included gear without Spirit, but whenever possible you’re going to want to prioritize getting the stuff with Spirit on it.

As always, this stuff is all from the beta, so it may not be entirely accurate, things may be missing or it may change. I’ll try to keep it as up to date as possible.

  1. Thank you for putting this list together so neatly. I was looking at gear and reputation for quite a while on Sunday and this list compiles all of the information very nicely.

    As always, you are a great resource for druids!

  2. Thank you for this very handful post 🙂

    Maybe you should add the crafted head : (Engineering)

  3. Inscription also has two nice crafted items. They have spirit and mastery. I’m not sure if mastery will be attractive or not, but these items might come in handy.

    Offhand: Inscribed Red Fan ( – BOE

    Staff: Inscribed Crane Staff ( – BOA

    Off Topic: I checked out your Food Blog. Very nice! I’ll be adding that to my list of things to read.

  4. So, I tweeted at you this morning how much I appreciate this. And I want to show you what you led me to do:

    This is my personal list of how I figured out what I am going to strive for. I AM A HUGE NERD! 😀

    • That’s awesome. I was going to sort the list both by gear slot and by location, but making those tables is such a pain! (Of course, I could solve that problem by not using tables, but I like to make things difficult).

  5. Thanks for the list Jasyla.

    Profession/gear observation: Inscription, Leatherworking, and even Engineering can craft BiS (pre-raid) ilvl 476-496 gear but Jewelcrafting and Alchemy can only craft relevant gear up to ilvl 450. I hope they at least up the stats/ilvl for the Alchemist Stone before launch.

    • I’d also really like it if they changed the stats on Alchemist Stone to haste, or had a couple different ones to choose from.

  6. hello, first of all awesome post as always. I do have a question; my current professions are alchemy and enchanting, will it be worth it to drop any of them for inscription to get the staff, or for engineer to get the goggles? I know they will only work for the first tier but if they are very good i might be worth it. Thanks in advance
