I finally hit Exalted with CE and got my Earthwarden. Not necessarily a huge mitigation upgrade from the Braxxis' Staff of Slumber but does way more damage which gives more threat for tanking. It also has +27 to defense which now allows me to stay uncrittable while switching to gear like the Necklace of the Deep and Zierhut's Lost Treads which lack defense but improve dodge and strength.
I am also using Earthwarden as my DPS weapon until I upgrade from
Fleshling Simulation Staff. I get a little less to Crit... like .5% less but 110 more power. Unfortunately I also lose +hit so on bosses I will be switching out to Romulo's Poison Vial for the +Hit with the added nature damage making up for the loss in crit.
I still really need an upgrade for a DPS 2H weapon but it is hard to find people wanting to run Heroic Bot, the grouping to take on Illhoof, or stay regular in the arena. Oh well, just keep hoping.
I also finally hit exalted with both Netherwing and Skyguard so I have my Azure Drake now and my Skyguard Silver Cross which is great for solo grinding with a great proc rate. Along with my new mounts my guildmates took me on a run of Heroic Sethekk and you may also see me now flying around in my Epic Flight Form.
Lastly, I ran Kara for the umpteenth time and still no Gloves of Dexterous Manipulation or Edgewalker Longboots have dropped for me. I am seriously considering dropping Enchanting to take up leatherworking so I can get items like the Primalstrike Vest and Boots of Natural Grace.... but I probably won't... unless blizz continues to be cruel to me.
