Again to reiterate--we're still a bit iffy on drops such as heroic tier, but we'll update it as soon as we know. Posting this here to avoid everyone asking :)Also our PTR DB was being slow, so I fixed the IDs to go to our live database. Should be running smoothly now.
it's the easiest it's ever been to gear up.This obviously isn't true, Patch 3.3 says Hi. If you meant 'easiest its ever been to gear up in Cataclysm', that would be true.
that's a really nice guide :)just wanted to point out that Flickering Wristbands/Flickering Wristbands from Alysrazor are leather and they are shown under wrist cloth section.
This is awesome....I have been making an excel spreadsheet for all my toons (1 of each class) during my breaks at work today and this makes it way faster then database searching. Thank you so much
Without getting into a debate on it, I think it's fair to say this patch is pretty easy to gear up in multiple ways and the scope of this guide is to show all available epics, not argue over semantics. Trying to pug heroic ICC dungeons was pretty painful for some and with the gated nature of ICC, alts weren't rolling into 11/12 ICC clears at first. Later on though...yeah, it was pretty easy if you liked chain running ICC. I think the new questing options are pretty neat in this tier though, as well as having epic BS weapons.Updated the Flickering Wrstbands--I'm sure I'll update it again once we know the stat allocations. Also confirmed that ilvl 359 gear is sold by JP vendors in capital cities, as well as the old ilvl 346 gear (if you really want to buy a ilvl 346 item for the same price as a 359 one).Also updated the location of pattern drops--look like they're fairly plentiful from Firelands trash.
Another awesome guide from perculia. Seriously, epic. Definitely linking my guild over to this article.
Amazing guide, now I don't have an excuse not to gear up for firelands.
is it really possible to reach exalted with the avengers of hyjal just by killing trash mobs?I tough they had said we would NOT be able to get there without killing bosses (as in, after a certain point, only bosses would reward rep)anyone can shed some light in this?
Time to go purchase some "welfare epics"
So far, you can get 3k rep or so from the trash and pass Friendly. Unsure about the higher reputation yet.

Unsure about the higher reputation yet.be sure to keep us informed =) I'm quite curious as to how far can we get on trash alone, and will certainly be overjoyed if we can get to exalted purely on trash.also QQ my luck REALLY stinks :S my PC just broke down ON PATCH DAY T_TETA till I can log in wow again: Unknown.
If it makes you feel any better, I started moving out of my apartment today--need to be completely out Thursday morning. Everyone in guild is farming trash and linking patterns and I am so jealous :(
Why aren't the new gear items appearing in database searches yet? This is a nice guide and all, but I like to do my own searches and comparisons to plan gear progression, and right now I can't compare the new items to the old ones directly.
It generally takes some time the first day of a new patch for all of the DB to run smoothly--for 4.1, everything was completely functional by the patch evening. In the meantime, you can select items from the premade lists to further compare several gear options.
Several of us are friendly now & have capes. Pretty cool for non-raiders. Cool for us raiders, too, helps us get rep before heroics.
People asking about rep: looks like regular trash works until 5999/6000 Friendly, with Molten Giants and Hounds giving small amounts of rep beyond that. So, can hit Honored with some effort (not counting bosses).
We've cut out parts from the 4.1 guide like Archaeology since there's many more efficient things you can do.So true... *le sigh*
Any report on the status of EU servers? I still can't download the patch. Is it US only this week? Though we had a full extended maintenance too (9PM to 5AM, eastern time). Download just won't start when launching the WoW launcher. Strange.
Didn't start right away on US servers; just give it time.
