Resto Druid Vs Patch 4.3: T12 bonus or T13 bonus

Today I’m going to go over my view on when to upgrade from your Tier 12 (T12), to Tier 13 {T13). With bonuses involved for having a majority of the set, it can be a tough call on when to give it up to go with something new and shinier.

If you managed to get through enough of Firelands, chances are you have your Tier 12 4 piece (4pc) bonus. That is

    “Your Swiftmend also heals an injured target within 15 yards for the same amount”

With my current set this means instead of healing ~16.6k with one Swiftmend, I’m doing a total of ~33.2l between two people while in the 4pc set. Free heals are great, and this is a great bonus.

Resto Druid VS Patch 4.3: Raid, Valor Point and Crafted Loot

Happy Patch day! That means we have a ton of new loot to sort through, decide what is good and what is crap, then actually go out and get it. To make things a little easier, I’ve composed a list of all items that may be appealing to Resto druids. These aren’t sorted BiS, as it will really depend on what else you’re wearing.

In this post we’ll cover items purchased with Valor Points, Crafted Items, and any items that come from the Dragon Soul raid. For items from Well of Eternity, Hour of Twilight or End Time Dungeons, look at Resto Druid VS Patch 4.3: 5-Man Dungeon Loot

Resto Druid VS Patch 4.3: 5-Man Dungeon Loot

With Patch 4.3 coming out as early as Tuesday (Today?!) Resto druids have a lot to look forward to. A lot of nerfs mostly, but a lot none the less. As with every patch though, it brings us new loot. Today we’re going to have a look at what we can get right out of the starting gate with the three new 5-man dungeons versus what is currently available as of Tier 12 (Patch 4.2).

For loot from Raids, Valor Points, or Crafted from this patch, Check out Resto Druid VS Patch 4.3: Raid, Valor Point and Crafted Loot.

Keep in mind these are values as they are on the PTR. This can, but likely will not, change before release.
