Preparing for Raids

Granted it's been less than a week since I hit 85 but already I'm looking ahead to making preparations for when I raid. I am still a few weeks away, maybe a little longer, maybe a little less from getting all my gear to that level but you can never start working towards that goal to soon. I also don't have a guild that would include me in any raids but to me that's just minor details right now. I've been hitting up heroics a lot recently, it's amazing what a gamble these turn out to be. Waiting 30-40 minutes does cut into my game time and having 2 of every 3 groups eventually disband due to wipes is frustrating. I've done my part by reading up and learning the bosses of each instance to the best of my ability. I figure if I know what I'm doing than that cuts the percentage of failure down a little. I've compiled my desired list for pre-raiding and I will be listing a few secondary options as well. This is based off my own perspective and doesn't necessary mean it's the best possible option for each slot. If you're not a hunter, I apologize as this blog entry will be completely boring and usless to you. Don't forget to take into account these items would need to be reforged to suit your own character.

Two Hand:

2nd) Seliza's Spear (H) - General Husam (Lost City)

So there you have it, my checklist. I recommend always doing research regardless of what class you are before doing heroics. I think once you do the daily random for the Valor Points you should aim for the instances that drop the gear you need. My list is with 99% performance in mind and 1% of how cool I will look! Have fun out there and good luck!
