Cataclysm Resto Druid Pre-Raid Gear Guide

This is just a quick cheat sheet for pre-raid resto gear. I left out any BOE gear that requires raid level mats (Chaos Orbs, I'm looking at you). This will include reputation vendor items where appropriate along with the required rep level.

Also, this list doesn't include any items that you can get from Valor points (you get those from completing the daily heroic and raid boss kills). You can get most slots except Head & Shoulders without needing a raid level drop provided you run enough daily heroics.

Wowhead filtering criteria used:

  • Leather armor
  • iLevel >= 278
  • Int > 0
  • Resil = 0

Stat Weighting: Wowhead default Resto Druid w/ Epic Gems & Reforge items checked
