Gear for All

October 19, 2007 at 10:25 am (Guide, Hunter, Warcraft, World of Warcraft)

Here’s an old list that you might still find useful. It’s a list of hunter gear ANYONE should be able to get. If you follow this link, you’ll see that I compiled this list six months ago, but most of it still holds true.

I only get to play WoW for about an hour at a time, which isn’t enough to form up a party and run a dungeon. It got me thinking about what gear I actually could get. This is my attempt at making a list of gear that should be obtainable by any hunter through reputation rewards, questing, non-raid dungeons, BoE drops, and BoE crafted items.

If you don’t know what HAEP is, it’s a way to compare the relative value of stats, generally over a long fight. Those preparing to raid or gearing for instance bosses will what to use the first value. The second value is the one I use because I’ve never found mana to be a problem while soloing or even in PvP, so the value of int and mp5 is effectively 0 for me.

Keep in mind the values are just a guideline, not the end all of what’s better. If you’re a survival hunter, you’re going to value Agi higher. If you’re BM, CR doesn’t transfer to your pet’s stats, but AP and Sta do. Basically, anything within ~50 points may be equivalent depending on your particular spec and/or current gear deficiencies.

If I’ve missed something or miscalculated HAEPs let me know below, and I’ll try to add it. Info was obtained from and my own searches at

q() – quest reward
dq() – quest involving an instance
wd – world drop (BoE)
r() – reputation
c() – crafted

HF – Hellfire Peninsula
ZM – Zangramarsh
TF – Terrokar Forest
NG – Nagrand
BE – Blades Edge Mountians
SMV – Shadowmoon Vale
NS – Netherstorm

* – There is another reward from the quest also on the list.

Points are calculated using the generic HAEP values below. The first number is total HAEP, second is pure DPS without MP5 or int. For melee weapons the second number is the HAEP for just stats (leaves out actual weapon DPS). You can find additional factors (and a HAEP addon) at this link.

Agi – 10 points
AP – 6 points
DPS – 84 points
CR – 8 points
HR – 13 points
MP5 – 20 points
Int – 5 points
Socket – 80 points

    if you can only play an hour or so at a time personally it think it’d be better spent in arena…

    ok you’ll enter now at a disadvantage because everyone that has entered arena a handful of times now has arena gear, and as of the 2.3 patch you’ll be able to grab the first seasons gear too, taking the edge away from the players that spent time in arena as opposed to bg’s…

    the gear is equivilent to tier 4/5/6 now and unless u can raid u’ll find it hard to get anything that matches or is even close.
