    Default Top BoE DPS Warrior Gear to help in T3 content.

    Hello, sorry if this belongs in the warrior forums although I felt that it having to due with going into T3 content and the BoE gear that can be made or bought off the AH when found to help jump into T3 (as I have tanked all of T1-T2 and some T3 content) that this post would better fit here rather then having to worry about warrior complaint post and the 300 post flowing in asking about top specs flooding mine out.

    I did pick up some nice pieces tanking my way through, but in all honesty with the amount of warriors I usually run with who are dps I never really touch nicer gear, due to it being theirs and 95% of the time a good upgrade. I have a good bit of plat saved up and thought to check the AH and some local crafters I know for a few BoE items and could not come to terms with which items would be best for a dps (duel wielding) warrior at this point as a took a 6 week hiatus for the US Army and seem to be a bit behind on gear that new content may have opened up to me.

    So if at all possible I was wondering if any person had made a good list of not necessarily top end BoE pieces simply good enough to let my warrior dps in T3 content with a guild I am currently in. Maybe even have a link to a site that is regularly updated on that information any help is appreciated. If you need to ask any questions to see where Im at or simply gauge what items I may need please feel free to ask.

    What do you have for dps gear right now?

    If you have plaques of achievement saved up, get the full set from the elder relic vendor in your capitol city. There's no set bonuses so you can substitute nice epic plate pieces if you've picked any up in tier 2 dungeons. Use your plaques for the slots that are in greater need for upgrades.

    That said, the new crafting recipes that came with 1.4 are very good. For dps warriors there is a chest, shoulders, ring, and 2 handed sword. Sorry, but there are no decent crafted weapons for dual wielding. You will have to run tier 2 dungeons. There was a dual wield set of weapons added recently, one dropping off Jultharin in expert Charmer's Caldera and the other off Renthar in expert Abyssal Precipice. Unfortunately you need both of them to get the set bonus, which is 50 hit. Without both you will have to use runes or talents to get 200-220 hit to start raiding, I think. Otherwise the stats on them are awesome.

    If you go with the crafted gear, when it comes to picking augments, you should know there are some changes being tested on the test server with warriors strength and dexterity. In the past I would have suggested using a dexterity augment, but that may not be a good choice in the near future.

    If you have mainly been tanking, tank queues for random tier 2s are usually really fast. You'll want to do some anyways to get decent accessories.

    Mmm, there's a good BoE gun out of xAP: http://rift.zam.com/en/item/9AE18325...Abyssal-Musket

    A neck out of xDD: http://rift.zam.com/en/item/C482989F...k-Icon-Pendant
    Or xCC: http://rift.zam.com/en/item/C382989F...Legion-Pendant

    Can grab two of this axe, also from xAP: http://rift.zam.com/en/item/C9B5E3E3...byssal-Hatchet

    Two of this ring out of xDSM: http://rift.zam.com/en/item/EDA5F8D7...Servant-Signet

    Alternatively, craft 2x: http://rift.zam.com/en/item/A6B7A8D8...-Forged-Signet
    Or 2x: http://rift.zam.com/en/item/ABB7A8D8...thbringer-Band

    Then get weapons from 2x: http://rift.zam.com/en/recipe/279966742/Deathbringer
    The accompaniment to the Blood Forged Signet is a 2her though, so you won't get the set bonus on those rings unless you use: http://rift.zam.com/en/item/C5D0B892...orged-Claymore

    Then you can get a chest: http://rift.zam.com/en/item/FEF8D6B8...Forged-Cuirass
    And some shoulders: http://rift.zam.com/en/item/93818A45...rged-Pauldrons

    Everything else is going to be BoP though for other slots, so start getting some plaques.

    The rings are UNIQUE equipped ... (didn't try out if differnet augments allow to wear 2 tho)

    the Deathbringer gear is rogue ONLY.

    Is it? I hadn't looked and it wasn't listed on Zam.

    The 3-piece crafted gear, chest, shoulders, ring is BIS (best in slot) pre-HK. 400plat overall depending on server, but you won't replace it in the near future.

    Here is a list of all the best warrior gear, choose the first sheet. This list will dramaticly change in the next patch probably due in 2-3 weeks. (leather gear will probably disappear from that)
