Tier 11 Armor Sets

The tier 11 armor sets are here. The hunters set is called "Lightning-Charged." These are item level 359. These have been acquired from MMO-Champion.

Tier 11 Hunter:
Lightning-Charged Headguard
Lightning-Charged Tunic
Lightning-Charged Legguards
Lightning-Charged Gloves
Lightning-Charged Spaulders

These do look pretty solid. Only one item with hit and one item with mastery. With so much hit being put onto items most hunters will probably reforge some to other stats. Mastery has shown to be very powerful for BM hunters on beta. You might see mastery becoming a major stat to reforge or stack over haste. We'll have to wait until it all comes live though.

I have noticed there is only 1 gem socket per each item. This is something different, but the socket bonuses are a lot more powerful than they have been in the past. This could be to counter the lack of sockets. But this will also put a little bit of a hinder on JC and making some money.

Other item level 359 mail pieces that will surely be looked into are:
Moccasins of Verdurous Glooms - Feet
Viewless Wings - Cloak
Fluid Death - Trinket

Item level 349 pieces which can be obtained with Justice Points through Heroic Cataclysm dungeons:
Vest of the True Companion - Chest
Gloves of the Passing Night - Hands
Willow Mask - Head
Hillside Striders - Legs
Wrap of the Valley Glade - Shoulders
Belt of the Dim Forest - Waist
Amulet of Dull Dreaming - Neck

Also the gear for Arena Season 9/Rated Battlegrounds has been released. You can see all those items here at MMO Champion.
