Cataclysm Gear Guide for Kitties


Gear lists

Several options will be listed for each slot and the lists will be ranked, with the optimal gear piece on top.

When you acquire gear it will help you much if you take this into account: gear pieces, with the exception of trinkets, of same item level in their respective slot will feature the exact same amount of base stats (strength, agility, intellect etc.), so equipping whatever gear piece you can find of the same item level as the optimal gear piece in that slot, will get you very close to BiS DPS wise. This is due to the fact that agility comes so far ahead of all other stats.


Pre-heroic gear list

This is the pre-heroic BiS list and does thus feature the best possible gear available before heroics (and raids for that matter). This does not include pieces obtained through Justice Points (since you will most likely not have gained a sufficient amount before you start with heroics), random world drops, PvP pieces or WotLK pieces. Values are derived with relative stat values from item level 333 gear.

Change log
[22-02-11 20:01] Changed general text, redid the entire gear list and added a value column and more options for each slot, and put the current gear list in its own section (pre-heroic gear list).
[11-12-10 12:33] Put items into a table for a more ordered structure, and to make it look less messy.

    Thank you for yourThank you for your suggestion. It’s a good idea and I will see what I can do for the next update, which should also contain a pre-raid gear list.

    Thank youFor the update on this guide, Feral Druids always are facinating creatures for sure.  If you get some time, it would be awsome to see your input on Stat weights and what makes the gear good for the class etc.

    Thank you. I have leveled upThank you. I have leveled up to level 85 now, but as soon as I get time, since I haven’t got much time now, I will update this guide and add more to it, so it becomes more extensive.

    By the way, where did this guide land? It’s certainly not in the druid section under class guides.
