Healing Gear

I figure someday Tatia the Tank will need to heal. So starting to identify gear that makes this possible (without respeccing to Holy).

[Ashtongue Talisman of Zeal] http://www.wowhead.com/?item=32489 looks like it drops in the Black Temple.

More as I find it.

  • Unfortunately, if you intend on raiding (not sure if that’s your bag or not), at some point, eventually you will be called upon to heal. It has nothing to do with your gear, or how well you tank, but solely due to certain abilities the boss will have. If a boss has an ability like a Mana Burn or a silence effect, those things can destroy a Paladin’s ability to tank. In situations like that, that we can swap out to some nice healing pieces (and at 70 there’s the recolored Judgment set for the healing paladin http://www.wowinsider.com/2007/04/04/not-quite-a-set-purple-judgement/ ) and while we may not be perfect, we will be more than a viable healer.

    Also, that trinket is a reputation reward for building up rep with the Ashtongue Deathsworn to Exalted… and the only way to get their reputation (beyond a handful of quests, none repeatable) is to be kicking down Illidan’s door and killing stuff in Black Temple. Is it a good item? Yep. Is it something that’s easy to get? Absolutely not.

    MMmmm Black Temple. Seriously, if that’s what it takes, so be it.

    I recognize that I may be called on to heal. As a “hybrid” toon I wouldn’t expect any less. So I plan to gear myself to be a fantastic tank.. and an adequate healer.

    I believe I already need to do a ton of Heroics to get the Libram of Repentance.
