    Hunter Gearing Pre-Raid for Pandaria - Updated!

    Hey guys.

    So after looking around, I noticed that there didn't seem to be the usual gearing guides that tend to show up near the start of a new expansion, so I figured I'd knock one together. It's still somewhat of a Work In Progress, as there are a fair few items that I just can't find sources for, and so have simply made an educated guess.

    This list covers Rare and Epic items from 85-90, and are (hopefully) earned without having to set foot in a raid.

    I have not included any holiday items due to their transitory nature.

    If you have any info on sources, or notice anything wrong, please let me know and I'll do my best to update.

    Honor Gear
    While I am trying to keep this more of a PvE gearing list (barring the crafted PvP gear) I know some people will be interested in the Honor gear available. With that in mind, the following should link you to the PvP set.

    There is a thread for this but its a few pages back. Yours seems to be more in-depth though.

    Also, not sure if wowdb is down or not but your links aren't working.

    Thanks for the update Koochulu! All links have been corrected and should direct you to the correct item.

    Please let me know if there are any more issues, of if anyone has any location updates.

    Hmmm, thanks for the simple layout. Now I need to figure out which reputations I need to go for first for the most gear while considering what can be supplemented with LWing items.

    Appreciate it!

    Thanks for the praise! As for a good rep to grind, I'd say either the Shado-Pan or the Klaxxi. Both provide 3 pieces of epic gear that do not over-lap with the BoE Leatherworking epics.

    Do you happen to know off the top of your head which zone either of these factions' are associated with or where the Quartermasters happen to be for either of this factions?

    (I can find this out on my own later, via wowhead or on the beta, but being at work I don't have access to either).

    Also, did you just join MMO or is this simply a new forums account? =P

    As far as I can recall, the Shado-Pan quartermaster is in a Shado-Pan camp in the north of Townlong Steppes. A lot of questing in that zone also earns Shado-Pan rep. I've not encountered the Klaxxi, but I do know they are located in the Dread Wastes (I've not done any questing in that zone). I'd assume they also have some rep to earn from questing in that zone.

    I've been lurking around on MMO for years now, but I've never been all that much of a poster!

    Conquest PVP trinket will almost certainly be changed to be an on use power or static power stat. It definitely won't be left as it is with so much main stat on it.
    My hunter is the genetic love child of Liam Neeson, the Dos Equis guy and Chuck Norris. You lose.

    Heh, good luck with the Relic. I'd imagine that's gonna cost a pretty penny for quite some time, unless you happen to have an inscriptionist and a lot of patience!

    I can see flashing steel talisman being highly sought after for the amount of hit it provides

    Sick post hunter bro. Saved me a hell of a lot of legwork. One thing that you could add to the post though is the PvP items. They have double secondary stats and will actually be competitive with PvE gear for raiding. Especially the trinkets and weapons.

    Thanks for the praise! As to the PvP gear, I've added all the 450 BoE Leatherworking gear to the list. Enjoy!

    Hey, after doing a bit of research, I found something worth noting. While several reputations provide epic rewards upon reaching revered, what you also need to know is that these items are purchases with Valor Points. Valor points also will cap at 1,000 weekly come MoP which will make it take several weeks to acquire these items.

    Yeah, I was aware of the costs. Personally I prefered the old method of gear from the rep vendors only costing gold, but such is life. As far as I'd guess, I'd say that these will be the only pieces of gear available with Valor, and that the Valor vendor will be used solely to upgrade your gears Ilvl.

    Won't change, if that would have been the case they would have already done so.

    They have already said they do not want PvP gear used as competative raiding gear and also the other way around with PvE gear and PvPing. They will change. Also, saying if they were to change it would have been done already is pretty ignorant seeing as how....it's still beta and things are changing all the time.
