Resto Druid Gear for 5.2

The following is the new gear available to Resto Druids in 5.2. It includes gear from the new raid, new reps and some new leatherworking patterns. I assume this list will also come in handy for Mistweaver Monks (though I haven’t included your tier pieces).

As always, this stuff is all from the PTR, 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. The drop locations of a few of the items is currently unknown, they are likely trash drops in Throne of Thunder.

I have listed 3 levels of loot in this list (LFR, Normal, Heroic). However, there are actually 5 different ilvls for all raid loot excluding Tier pieces (because things clearly needed to be more complex). Bosses in Throne of Thunder have a small chance to drop Thunderforged gear in normal and heroic modes (not in LFR). Thunderforged gear is 6 ilvls higher than it’s regular counterpart gear. So the new gear levels are:

  • 502 -LFR
  • 522 – Normal
  • 528 – Normal Thunderforged
  • 535 – Heroic
  • 541 – Heroic Thunderforged

Trinkets

If you’re looking for some analysis on the new trinkets, check out Therya’s very detailed post. Personally, my top choices are Horridon’s and Chalice. The absorbs from the other two sound nice, but I really don’t like Spirit-based trinkets (and Stolen Relic of Zuldazar will require a whole new click binding and I’m pretty much out of those).

Weapon

Juvenate has done a good analysis of 1-handed weapon drops in 5.2. A one-handed weapon plus off-hand is superior stat-wise, since off-hands get an extra Intellect enchant. However, there are only 2 off-hands available, and they come from the 10th and 12th bosses in the tier. If you pick up a nice 1H weapon, you could be stuck with your Feng offhand for a while. It might be worth it to pick up a staff (or the 2H mace, depending on where it drops) if you get the chance.
