Shopping in Iceland

Filed under: World of Warcraft — Andrew.Rowbottom @ 1:22 pm

Not the store, treatment the Frozen halls.

I didn’t get to do the ICC raid yesterday, mostly because I couldn’t make the raid in time. I shouldn’t have signed up really. Anyway, what I hear is that the team wasn’t able to make much progress in there, which is a shame. If I were a raid leader (which I most certanily am not) I  think I’d probably try to “hand pick” a team, concentrating on the well geared players that I knew handled new enounters well and displayed amazing situational awareness. I know that there is a big enough pool of Munquis that meet this criteria. From a selfish point of view I’d like this because as a “B team”er I know that taking on an encounter with players that have already bested the content makes things a lot easier for me.

Anyway, this news has prompted me to take a closer look at Flowersz own gearing and using Drugs own post here’s what I have and where I think I’ll be able to get upgrades. AKA my “shopping list”… Please don’t take this as a loot ranking list, this is just concentrating on loot in the Frozen Halls and occasionally stuff available from [Emblem of Triumph] or on the Auction house.

  • Neck: FoS Heroic
  • Back: Pos N, (or Emblems of Frost)
  • Chest: T9 from Triumph or Auction House
  • Legs: Pos Heroic, or T9 from Triumph
  • Feet: Pos H, FoS N
  • Rings: HoR H, or Triumph
  • Main Hand: PoS H, HoR N
  • Offhand: Pos N (or Hor H)
  • Trinket: HoR H
  • Head: none
  • Shoulders: none
  • Wrist: None
  • Hands: None
  • Waist: None

So as far as I can tell I should buy the remaining 2 pieces of T9 which should be done by the end of the week, and then run any of the Frozen halls dungeons in normal or heroic. Probably prefering PoS Heroic for the Mace upgrade  which would be a huge upgrade and give an extra a tiny chance at the Battered Hilt and a chance at the boots upgrade. And then going back to FoS Heroic for one fo the two neck pieces.
