    The Perfect WoTLK Warlock Gear Setup

    What would be the perfect warlock total outfit 3.09 version gear setup.

    If I was a naked level 80 Warlock and had the power to access all items in the game.

    What would the perfect full body warlock gear setup that does the best dps and best status.

    This is my thoughts:

    Main Hand: The Turning Tide
    Back: Pennant Cloak
    Chest: Gown of the Spell-Weaver
    Feet: Arcanic Tramplers
    Finger1: Signet of Manifested Pain
    Finger2: Lost Jewel
    Head: Hood of Rationality
    Legs: Leggings of the Wanton Spellcaster
    Neck: Wyrmrest Necklace of Power
    Off-Hand: Surplus Limb
    Shoulder: Valorous Plagueheart Shoulder
    Trinket1: Extract of Necromatic Power FIXED -- Illustration of the Dragon Soul
    Trinket2: Dying Curse
    Waist: Cincture of Polarity or Leash of Heedless Magic
    Wrist: Bindings of the Expansive Mind
    Hands: Gloves of Grandeur
    ADDED -- Wand: Gemmed Wand of the Nerubians

    Thanks

    In addition, all gear will have the best dps enchant, and the best matching dps gem to provide full utility. As well as have a belt buckle.

    I'm pretty sure the general consensus is that Illustration of the Dragon Soul is superior than Extract for Trinket1. Other than that, looks like most of the best-in-slot items are there.

    This was my list for Affliction from my post http://www.mmo-champion.com/index.php?topic=36471.15. I do not know about Destruction though. I notice you lack the dps boost from the 2 piece set bonus.

    This list is not absolute and there are other set ups mentioned in the latter pages of http://elitistjerks.com/f80/t37900-d...arlock_thread/. I would not go off of the rankings on the first post of the thread as they are very hit heavy and are not nessecarily balanced around the hit cap, but in the later pages, there are a few combos that seem good.
    ------------------------------------
    Helm: Hood of Rationality
    -Meta: 25 spell power + 2% intellect
    -Gem: 19 spell power
    -Enchant: Arcanum of Burning Mysteries
    Neck: Wyrmrest Necklace of Power
    -Gem: 19 spell pwer
    Shoulders: Valorous Plagueheart Shoulderpads
    -Gem: 19 spell power
    -Enchant: Greater Inscription of the Storm (Inscription: Master's Inscription of the Storm)
    Back: Pennant Cloak
    -Gem: 19 spell power
    -Enchant: Enchant Cloak - Greater Speed (Tailoring: Lightweave Embroidery)
    Chest: The Sanctum's Flowing Vestments
    -Gem: 19 spell power
    -Gem: 19 spell power
    -Enchant: Enchant Chest - Powerful Stats, Enchant Chest - Major Spirit
    Bracers: Unsullied Cuffs
    -Gem: 19 spell power
    -Enchant: Enchant Bracer - Superior Spellpower
    Hand: Valorous Plagueheart Gloves
    -Gem: 19 spell power
    -Enchant: Enchant Gloves - Exceptional Spellpower (Engineering: Hyperspeed Accelorators)
    Belt: Leash of Heedless Magic
    -Enchant: Eternal Belt Buckle + 19 spell power gem
    Leg: Leggings of the Wanton Spellcaster
    -Enchant: Brilliant Spellthread
    Boots: Arcanic Tramplers
    -Enchant: Enchant Boots - Greater Spirit (Tuskarr's Vitality can be considered if no Unholy DK is in the raid)
    Ring 1: Signet of Manifested Pain
    -(Enchanting: Enchant Ring - Greater Spellpower)
    Ring 2: Band of Channeled Magic
    -(Enchanting: Enchant Ring - Greater Spellpower)
    Trinket 1: Dying Curse
    Trinket 2: Illustration of the Dragon Soul
    Weapon: The Turning Tide
    -Enchant: Enchant Weapon - Mighty Spellpower
    OH: Surplus Limb
    Wand: Gemmed Wand of the Nerubians


    This list has the assumption of 3% hit is gained with talent points and 1% from Heroic Presence.
    Never argue with an idiot.* They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    This is one of the lists pulled from the dots and you thread if you weren't putting points into the hit talents:

    Head: [Hood of Rationality]
    Neck: [Wyrmrest Necklace of Power]
    Shoulders: [Valorous Plagueheart Shoulderpads]
    Cloak: [Pennant Cloak]
    Chest: [Valorous Plagueheart Robe]
    Wrist: [Unsullied Cuffs]
    Gloves: [Gloves of the Fallen Wizard]
    Feet: [Arcanic Tramplers]

    Trinket: [Illustration of the Dragon Soul]

    Mainhand: [The Turning Tide]
    Offhand: [Surplus Limb]
    Wand: [Gemmed Wand of the Nerubians]


    Question: Is there a reason why you chose to opt out of the 2 piece T7 bonus?

    There is already a similar thread in here. Go check it out. Furthermore, your meta gem won't work with pure red gems in socket and the bracers from OS are loads better than Razuvious ones.

    Also you can take Risu's list and replace the robe with:
    Chest: Gown of the Spell-Weaver
    -Gem: 9 Spell Damage 8 hit
    -Enchant: Enchant Chest - Powerful Stats, Enchant Chest - Major Spirit

    Or possibly skip the hit gem (breaking socket bonus, which is almost negligible), go for a straight spell power gem, and throw Enchant Boots - Icewalker on your boots to make up the a bit of hit, and some extra crit.

    This would allow a gear set if you need about 3% higher hit, either from lack of hit talents (such as a deep demo build), or lack of a moonkin or shadow priest.

    Its all good and well listing all that gear.... But the problem im stuck with, is even if you get all that gear, will you not be very far off the hit cap - and therefor actually lose dps?

    Re: The Perfect WoTLK Warlock Gear Setup

    Signet of the Malevolent > Lost Jewel Btw.

    Rest is fine

    Arcanic Tramplers are hard to work in without taking +hit talents or gemming for hit.

    Not if you take cinture of polarity instead of leash of heedless magic.

    That is close to the list on warlockdens.com listing best in slot items btw which has been out alot sooner than this thread.

    Re: The Perfect WoTLK Warlock Gear Setup

    Anywhere I go it tells me the valorious head is very very close to the hood of rationality same goes for the shoulders.
    Obviously pants and chest are not worth it.
    Gloves are also very good.

    Best in slot items is very dependable on your hit required hit rating, therefor all allies have an advantage over horde chars.
