Horde Help

Cataclysm Gear: Plate

DPS in Plate

This group primarily does melee (physical) damage. Characters in this group differ from their mail- or leather-wearing cousins primarily in their preference for Strength (their main, immutable statistic) over Agility. Hit and Expertise are both useful.

  2. Only for Fury Warriors or Frost Death Knights who dual-wield.
  3. This is PvP gear but, even for PvE, may be an upgrade for PvE items whose level is 346 or below. (Resilience has no effect in PvE encounters, but the other stats of this 377 PvP gear may outweigh the total stats of lower-level PvE gear.)
  4. Only for Warriors.
  5. Not for Warriors.
  6. Although technically this is a quest reward from the Darkmoon Faire, Scribes (inscriptionists) make the Winds cards that compose the Hurricane Deck, which is exchanged for the trinket.
  7. This appears to be a Blizzard blunder. Jewelcrafters can make two necklaces and two rings (neither Unique-Equipped) for Agility dps but none for Strength dps? Oops. Somebody goofed, obviously, but why didn't anyone notice?
