New character stats as well as pre-Kara gear upgrades. I've been at 70 for about a month now and collecting all my pre-Kara gear as well as 3 successful runs short of my Kara Key. However Kara can wait!
What's a good Blood Elf (Horde) Protect Paladin Tanking Specialist without a fine Blade. Obtained with Revered with Keepers of Time (KoT). Its a good must have for pre-Kara gear as well as having the Crystalforge Sword. I now have both and fully enchanted for +40 Spellpower.
Again from reaching Revered with KoT. This is my much needed Tanking legging upgrade. I had it fully gemmed and enchanted it with the Clefthide Leg Armor for the Stamina for HP & Agility for increase Dodge Rating as well as Armor increase. A must legging piece for any serious Protect Paladin Tanking Specialist.
My long lived green old Chest piece.
Replaced with the new Breastplate of the Bold. Its not the actual tanking chest piece that I really need but its a very nice upgrade to the old green piece for now. Has much more HP gem socketed and at least 1% more Dodge as well as Armor increase and other stats. Enchanted it for +6 to all stats which is really nice as it increase ALL stats, so more HP, Mana and Agility (Dodge & Armor). For a while I kept wondering just where I was getting 90 extra Mana from. Yeah came from the enchant for +stats also. Hoping can get my correct chest piece to drop from Warlord Kalithresh in Steamvault: Breast Plate of the Righteous. So far he refuses to open his vault to drop the chest piece run after run as well as the needed Devilshark Cape.
Needless to say constant proper gear enchanting, getting gems for gear tanking pieces so you can tank properly and make a healers life easier constantly does leave a Protection Paladin a bit on the broke side of things. Dreaming of a elusive expensive Epic Mount that cost 5k gold when your putting all your gold into your gear and repairs.
