Default 58 Warrior - Next Big Gear Upgrade?

Hey guys,

Been a while since I consulted the great oracles of ForumQuest about Rabkan (quit playing for a bit), but I wanted to see what more seasoned warriors think I should upgrade next...

Right now Rabkan at level 58 has the following gear

Ear: Cougar Claw Earring / Orc Fang Earring
Face: Peerless Dragonskin Mask
Neck: Glimmering Mithril Torque
Head: Custom Crown of the Myrmidon
Shoulders: Crested Spaulders
Chest: Breastplate of the Myrmidon
Arms: Vambraces of the Myrmidon
Hands: Gauntlets of the Mydrmidon
Ring: Velium Fire Wedding Ring x2
Waist: Skinner's Belt
Back: Cloak of Crystalline Waters
Legs: Greaves of the Myrmidon
Feet: Boots of the Myrmidon
Range: Totem of Warrior Spirit
Mainhand: Infestation
Offhand: Frostbringer

There a couple of obvious things that come to mind (Dragon Tooth Choker, Earring of Essence, Idol of Thorned, Barbed Dragonscale Pauldrons / Heavy Dragonwing Mantle) all of which hover in the 2-4k range.

I'm curious if I should be simply saving for these midrange upgrades, or is there an item that's a bigger ticket that would make a more noticeable change in what my toon can do. I've thought about a Blood Runed Girdle, which seems good but again, not THE game changer - keep in mind I spent a few months saving up for a Cloak of Crystalline Waters and it's obviously been a noticeable upgrade from Crystal Chitin Hand Wraps

Keep in mind I'm in a midrange casual raiding guild - unfortunately can't do Sky easily due to work schedule.

Thoughts??????

Fair point - missed my dragon killing session with my guild. Good call.

Anything else?

Bio orb if you want big ticket. Otherwise, shoulders.

Depending on what you would raid (even casual encounters sometimes go for dragons), a resist set.

Bio orb - just looked that up, interesting!

So it's a clickable blind spell huh?

Can it be cast midfight without interruption or is basically a tool to start a fight with aggro? Seems good either way

Mostly to start with high aggro. But one click and you dont really need to worry about aggro ever again.

(just make sure youre in melee when you cast it or it fears em).

5 second cast time. You won’t be able to land this mid-combat if you’re being hit. Bio orb is a powerful tool situationally but is impractical for routine every day use. Using on incoming you have time time it perfectly or the mob either runs off or the mob is wailing on another party member for 3-4 seconds.

For it’s steep price you could afford 1200-1500 instant mallet click charges.

Neck: +6 dragon neck, don't bother with dragon tooth choker

Waist: Spider Fur belt is an upgrade that is cheap. Blood Runed Girdle you pay a real premium for, which I don't think is worth it for you at this point.

Feet: if your guild kills vindi, boots of the vindicator

Face: Eyepatch of Plunder

Wrist: you didn't list your wrist items but you should have silver chitin wristband or be showing up at scout rolls for bracer of benevolence at this point. If you want to switch to giant faction now that you have most of your skyshrine loot. Warlord's bracer is a good warrior wrist if you can find a pickup WToV raid.


Ring: I don't know what your stamina is like, if it is close to 205 unbuffed yet or not but working towards your 9th ring would be good.

Ear: Earring of Essence + Black Sapphire Electrum Earring . The black sapphire electrum earrings gives 2ac 35hp for only 550pp each.

Shoulder: if you are going to spend money for a big ticket item. Matchless Dragonwing Mantle is the best droppable shoulder item for a warrior. they are like 40k though. 65hp

Back: once again....another big ticket item, upgrading from cloak of the crystalline waters to cloak of flames for the 50hp.


I'd say get the +6 dragon neck and the earrings for now until you get to 60 and then work on the rest of the list.

Ear: Earring_of_Essence + Black_Sapphire_Electrum_Earring

or fingerbone hoop

Face: Grotesque_Alloy_Mask or the plane of hate mask

Neck: +6 neck

Shoulders: Barbed_Dragonscale_Pauldrons or Peerless_Dragonwing_Mantle

Ring: Velium Fire Wedding Ring + Djarns_Amethyst_Ring

Waist: Skinner's Belt (this means you are a TROLL) so STR and STA are not very big targets for you.

Back: Cloak of Crystalline Waters

Range: Runed_Bone_Fork or if you are not STA maxed Idol_of_the_Thorned

all of these would mean like 200 hp's

all this stuff is in the EC and easy to get. but the 6 neck take 10K and go stand at ayllish and the shm monk that duo her every 8 hours should let you buy the LRs

bio orb is over priced and mostly for monks. MY Warrior has epic and TOV/VP wepons for holding agro but for insta aggro Strings, mallet, root nets, golem metal wands coldain beard the puller and singing kumbaya.
