Shifting Perspectives: Gearing a bear druid in patch 4.2


Every week, WoW Insider brings you [hide]Shifting Perspectives[/hide] for [hide]cat[/hide], [hide]bear[/hide], [hide]restoration[/hide] and [hide]balance[/hide] druids. This week, it’s not like we’re doing dailies for our health.

Mmmm. Fresh meat gear, nicely charred by all that flame-broiling action in the Firelands these days. High time to update our gear lists!

Stat priority for bears in [hide]patch 4.2[/hide] remains armor, stamina, agility, mastery, crit, expertise, hit, and haste. Rather than rehash territory we’ve already covered in [hide]our first set[/hide] of [hide]bear gear guides[/hide] for Cataclysm, the lowest piece I’m going to list in each slot is the best available piece from 5-mans, reputation, or the new Molten Front vendors. If you’re starting from absolutely nothing and need some ilevel 333/346 gear to tide you over, I would recommend the previous bear guides. Otherwise, your goal should be to get to at least the lowest piece in each slot on this list.

As always, I’m bypassing PVP gear because so much itemization is wasted on resilience. However, if you want to use it and you’ve got a better piece than would otherwise be available from PVE, knock yourself out. This week, we’ll cover the helm through boot slots, and next week, we’ll tackle rings, trinkets, weapons, and relics.[hide]Continue reading Shifting Perspectives: Gearing a bear druid in patch 4.2[/hide]Filed under: [hide]Druid[/hide], [hide]Analysis / Opinion[/hide], [hide](Druid) Shifting Perspectives[/hide][hide]Shifting Perspectives: Gearing a bear druid in patch 4.2[/hide] originally appeared on [hide]WoW Insider[/hide] on Tue, 26 Jul 2011 15:00:00 EST.
