Wrath far nicer to this feral than BC ever was.

I don't know if it is the fact that multiple Naxx boses share a loot table or that I have just been extremely lucky but in the expansion the loot gods have looked on me very favorably.

In BC I had to run battlegrounds and 2v2 arena constantly to get geared when Kara would not drop one shred of decent leather. It took forever for me to get items like...

Bladed Shoulderpads of the Merciless
Bracers of Maliciousness
Chestguard of the Conniver
Edgewalker Longboots
Girdle of Treachery
Gloves of Dexterous Manipulation
Skulker's Greaves
Terestian's Stranglestaff

This was due to both bad luck and raid difficulty. Yes, Raid difficulty. This was back in the day where you didn't want to attempt certain fights because you only had no lock or no priests... etc... you get the picture. So even though eventually this gear fell ( way to late for me to actually get any use out of it since we were already clearing ZA and badge vendor gear on the isle was better) I had been running Kara for probably my 24th or 25th time.

Fast Forward to Wrath.

We have cleared 10 man Naxx about 3-4 times around working on 25 man. We should clear 25 man Naxx this week since the lag is gone after running 25 man Naxx about the last 4 weeks.

Here's the luck...

On our first time killing Gothik the Hood of the Exodus falls! WooHoo! Huge upgrade to my crappy blue helms... yes, this is an upgrade to both my tanking and DPS helm.

Sat. night in 10 man Naxx I was lucky and won the roll for Key to the Focusing Iris so Pendant of the Dragonsworn won't be far behind.

Belt of the Tortured, Dawnwalkers, Gored Hide Legguards, Circle of Death, and Collar of Dissolution are all new items I have recieved recently. I am now hit capped for Kitty wearing T7 Chest and Shoulders in the mix for the 2T7 rip bonus.

I have already gotten Staff of the Plaguehound as well as Origin of Nightmares with hopefully Journey's End right around the corner. I am saving my DKP for the T7.5 Helm so I can enchant and gem it for tanking while using the Exodus hood strictly for DPS duty.

The only thing left outside of T7.5 gear that I still want out of Heroic raids...

Idol of Worship - I kept passing on it becuase it wasn't working til the most recent patch.
Bandit's Insignia or Fury of the Five Flights - To go with the Mirror...
Concealment Shoulderpads
Chestguard of the Recluse or Tunic of Indulgence... prefer the first one
Frosted Adroit Handguards
Leggings of the Honored
Greatring of Collision and Surge Needle Ring
Journey's End
Boundless Ambition or Heritage

Cloak of the Shadowed Sun

and not in a raid but wouldn't mind...

Essence of Gossamer - for my Sarth +3 set
Loatheb's Shadow - I like the Crit and controlling when I get my AP boost.

I'd personally keep the exodas for tanking and grab the other 4 pieces for the 4p bonus. (Unless kitty is your main spec.)

At least I use the helm on my bear.
