5.2 Gear List – a Work in Progress

Blame it on end of tier burnout or being busy with moving – either way, I’ve been slacking. In my time away from the blog, Something Wicked finished up Tier 14, bagging a Realm First! Sha of Fear achievement. I was promoted to a full member. I even finally managed to not die on Heroic Imperial Vizier. I’ve tried to stay up with most of the upcoming changes in 5.2, and I’ll be writing a post to summarize some of the changes, but most of my summary will actually be of discussions that have happened on MMO-Champion. I know it’s a bit late – by all accounts, 5.2 is coming out Tuesday, March 5th, but damn it I’m going to try and catch up.

Something that I haven’t seen is a comprehensive gear list for 5.2 – so I’m making one similar to one I used for last tier. The way I used this last tier was to Ctrl+F the boss name or the item slot before or after doing each boss to see if the coin was worth it, to see if there was another boss later in the instance/raid night that was likely to give me what I wanted, and to see quickly how each item was itemized. The lists are more or less sorted from worst to best from a T15H BiS Affliction/Demonology point of view – that is, crit sucks. At the moment, the list is only ilvl 522 – but you can safely assume that Thunderforged, Heroic, Heroic Thunderforged items all follow the same order, as do Raid Finder items (but the Valor and World Boss items are better than the Raid Finder ones, whereas the Valor and World Boss items are worse than the Thunderforged, Heroic and Heroic Thunderforged items).

  • [Frostborn Wristwraps] - Megaera – Yellow Socket, 60 INT Bonus, 848 Total INT, Random Enchantment, ??? total secondaries

A few random notes: Main Hand + Off Hand is once again better than Two Hand. The Frostborn Wristwraps have a random enchantment so I can’t tell where it stacks up. There’s a belt – Abandoned Zandalari Firecord – that I can’t find the drop location for. The most promising off-piece item is the legs from Lei Shen; however, that is a lot of Hit on one item (because of 3 Red slots as well), and it’s a lot of Hit that can’t be reforged out of if we want to reforge out of Crit. As I look through more of the 5.2 stuff (I know, I’m behind!), I’ll come to more complete conclusions.

One thought on “5.2 Gear List – a Work in Progress

  1. Hows this coming? Hopefully you can give us something soon. Especially a trinket breakdown like last time. MMO-Champ is a mess with inconsistent information.
