MMO-champion has started getting information on the Icecrown raid itemization. Among the info they have is numbers for the tier sets for druids.
Okay, so both Relevart & Graylo seem to have put their stamp of approval on the tier 10 moonkin set. Yay!
I’m still not ready to put a seal of approval on the resto set however. For the resto set, they slightly missed the mark. Why? Only two pieces of the resto tier set have haste. The pieces with crit are the iconic pieces: Helm, shoulders, chest. If we want to wear 4 pieces of our tier 10 set, we end up having to wear two crit pieces, and then we’ll have to struggle to get enough haste to hit our 750 to 850 haste “cap” in 3.3. The tier 10 resto set would have worked before the change to GOTEM, but now we need the itemization team to take a second look at the resto tier 10 set, to make sure: 3 pieces have haste & only 2 have crit. It’s not even a drastic change that I’m asking for. Just one more haste piece so that people who want to wear the tier 10 set have the chance to hit the haste cap (even if it will still be challenging). It would be really sad if no one ever wore the resto tier 10 set pieces other than the pants & gloves.
Dear developers, if you want haste to be an important stat for resto druids, then please put it on our gear. That’s all I’m asking for.
