Dragon Soul Hunter Loot

The difficulty path you seek is entirely up to you.  You can obtain gear from Raid Finder, regular Dragon Soul, or Heroic Dragon Soul. Weapons in Raid Finder are only available from Madness of Deathwing.  Each part of Raid Finder Dragon Soul gives you 250 Valor Points, giving you a easy way to obtain half of the valor you can get per week.

Here is the list:

Morchok

Hand
Sporebeard Gauntlets ( RF | Normal | Heroic )

Morchok is the lottery boss in Looking for Raid. He has a chance to drop every Raid Finder token.  Too bad he doesn’t drop the same tokens in regular or heroic DS.

Gauntlets of the Corrupted Protector turn in for Wyrmstalker’s Gloves.
Leggings of the Corrupted Protector turn in for Wyrmstalker’s Legguards.
Shoulders of the Corrupted Protector turn in for Wyrmstalker’s Spaulders.
Chest of the Corrupted Protector turn in for Wyrmstalker’s Tunic.
Crown of the Corrupted Protector turn in for Wyrmstalker’s Headguard.

Warlord Zon’ozz

Hand
Gauntlets of the Corrupted Protector ( RF | Normal | Heroic ) turn in for
Wyrmstalker’s Gloves ( RF | Normal | Heroic )

Range
Horrifying Horn Arbalest ( Normal | Heroic )

Yor’sahj the Unsleeping

Legs
Leggings of the Corrupted Protector ( RF | Normal | Heroic ) turn in for
Wyrmstalker’s Legguards ( RF | Normal | Heroic )

Two-Hand
Spire of Coagulated Globules ( Normal | Heroic )

Hagara the Stormbinder

Shoulder
Shoulders of the Corrupted Protector ( RF | Normal | Heroic ) turn in for

Spine of Deathwing

Trinket

Madness of Deathwing

2-Hand
Kiril, Fury of Beasts ( RF | Normal | Heroic )

Range
Vishanka, Jaws of the Earth ( RF | Normal | Heroic )

Shared Boss Loot

Trinket
Vial of the Shadows ( RF | Normal | Heroic )

Trash Mobs

Range
Ruinblaster Shotgun – For a dwarf hunter, this is a powerful range weapon, because of the racial. It only drops from trash mobs in Normal Dragon Soul.

I hope the list helps. Good luck in the newest raid and good luck when it comes to drops. Raid finder is evil.

Note: I realized after I originally posted the post that I forgot to add in the links to the tier sets themselves. I will come around to do so in the near future.  At least I hope to do so, probably could have done it by now if I didn’t type up this disclaimer. Done!  I do have a nice little write up about the tier set bonuses right here.

4.3 Valor Point Priority

It is now a lot easier to hit Valor cap.  You can get 500 Valor Points from LFR (Looking For Raid) from doing both parts. If you are raiding you can accumulate the rest from the Dragon Soul raid or the new 5 mans (Well of Eternity, End Time, and Hour of Twilight).  With that I’ll leave you with a new valor point priority list:

Neck
Cameo of Terrible Memories – 1,250 Valor Points

Ring
Emergency Descent Loop – 1,250 Valor Points

The neck and ring slots are best in slot and should be the first items you get.

Waist
Cord of Dragon Sinew – 1,650 Valor Points

Back
Batwing Cloak – 1,250 Valor Points

Depending on what you have the waist can take priority over getting the back.  If you obtained Dreadfire Drape from normal Lord Rhyolith there isn’t much improvement except a nice chunk of stamina, if you have the heroic version of Dreadfire Drape then you wouldn’t waste any Valor on a new cloak.  The heroic version of Dreadfire Drape is BiS.

Boots
Boneshard Boots(BOE) – 1,650 Valor Points or Gold

Wrist
Dragonbelly Bracers(BOE) – 1,250 Valor Points or Gold

The feet and wrist are both BoE. I recommend using a alts Valor or gold to obtain both.  These 2 slots are dependent on what you already have or if you obtained gear from normal Dragon Soul or Dragon Soul LFR.  The wrist isn’t that good and you can refrain from getting them until the prices go down.

Trinket
Kiroptyric Sigil – 1,650 Valor Points

For the Trinket Slot it really depends on what you already have or if you obtained any from normal Dragon Soul, Dragon Soul LFR, or Firelands.  I personally play as a BM hunter and would rather enjoy this on use proc of thick agility and use it combined with Kill Command.  Frostheim wrote a nice write up on the new trinkets at Wow Insider.

Head, Chest, Hands

The priority of what pieces you obtain is impacted by the order you obtain the tier 13 pieces from regular Dragon Soul, Dragon Soul LFR, or Alizabal in Baradin Hold. For BM hunters the head, Zeherah’s Dragonskull Crown(2,200 Valor Points), is BiS. It is especially sexy since it’s named after Zeherah from FemaleDwarf.com.  The chest, Dragonflayer Vest(2,200 Valor Points), would be of the highest priority if your luck is running low.  I would save the hands, Arrowflick Gauntlets(1,650 Valor Points), for absolutely last since you might be able to get the tier gloves, Wyrmstalker’s Gloves, from either version of DS or BH.

Well… I’m pooped.
