[Raiding] New LFR on the 6th, Questions about Gear.

Well i cannot get anywhere cause of Barracuda lol, Does anyone know if the new LFR on Tuesday will have the same 476 ILvL, or will it be higher. If you need a 470 to enter, seems like the gear will be higher. Also i would prob save my coins to do that one instead of first. Just wanted to ask to prepare and tell my guildies?

I think the ilvl of gear for the new LFR was 483

This sounds right. It's a half tier up from MSV.

ilvl req to get in is 470
gear drops are 483

its 3 bosses, ie first half of HoF.

next week is 2nd half of HoF

then the week after that is ToES

gear drop ilvl is the same fore all 3 and the req to get in is the same.

then I expect 5.1 will drop sometime around December.

also one note, the sigil's of wisdom IIRC only drop off the last boss in HoF, ie you'll have a chance to get them in LFR next week.

Went over the loot in the dungeon journal and noticed none of the last 3 bosses drop head or shoulder tier tokens. Are those found on the next tier raid?

tier tokens are spread throughout HoF and ToES

How are you guys doing with the other ones?

I think my highest toon is around 7.

I have 7 sigils of power.

immer has 8.

btw from just reading it seems I was wrong, all bosses in HoF will drop Sigils of wisdom.

seems the drop rate is different from what I had read before.

LFR=personal chance a sigil will drop
Reg/Heroic=100% chance.

so hard core raiders will be completing the quest this week and getting the next part, kill the sha of fear. (boss in ToES.)

in reg/Heroic make sure that everyone loots the boss to get their sigils.

Is there a way to find the legendary wepons for the quest chain?

There are no legendary weapons ... at least not yet.

Do you mean the Sha-touched weapons?

If so, I think that's any weapon that drops in Heart or ToES.

Is that what we get at the end of the legendary quest chain?

Dungeon journal, look for weapons with sha-touched sockets.

the legendary gems are currently +500 (pick intel, agi, or str)

in 5.1 the legendary gems are getting buffed to 550.

The quest chain awards of a Legendary gem with +500 stat (as Dark noted), that can only be slotted into a Sha-touched socket, which only appear on weapons from Heart and Terrace (LFR included, though).

There is apparently a way to buy additional gems once you finish the quest, so that you can upgrade with impunity.

its not any weapon, just a few weapons

for instance if I open the Dungeon journal and sort HoF for mage gear of the weapons I see there's 1 sha touched and 2 that aren't

oddly there is an "elite" version of one of the wepons, not sure what that's about but its higher ilvl than the non elite.

ya but I think the gem is unique equiped (sorry dual wielders)
I think they're doing the replacement gem something like the ashen verdict ring.

so ya if you slot it into the LFR version don't worry, you'll still be able to get one to put in the reg or heroic version.

BTW the elite weapon had a blue socket not a sha touched.

The "Elite" tag is a harder mode for one fight in ToES (first fight I think).

It's a council fight where you can kill the bosses in any order (very much like Iron Council in Ulduar). If you kill one specific guy last, you get "elite" drops, which are a half-tier up. That works on both normal and heroic.

Oddly in the Dungeon journal elite weapons are showing up in the LFR table.

is that boss in the first 3 or last 3 bosses?

wowhead was making me think maybe it was for the 25loot but I don't think they've split the 10 and 25 locks yet.

Its in ToES, which won't have a split LFR. All 4 bosses in one "wing", or whatever you want to call those.

Unless you're saying that HoF has an Elite weapon in it .... which I was not aware of.

Yep I'm saying loot tables show an elite weapon in HoF. and it doesn't have a sha-touched socket (just a blue one)

Heart of Fear-
Grand Empress (last boss) drops two sha-touched socket weapons - AGI fist, SPI mace

ToES-
Tsulong (2nd boss) drops two - AGI staff and INT sword
Lei Shi (3rd) drops three - AGI dagger, gun, INT staff
Sha of Fear (4th/last) drops two - STR 1H sword and STR 2H axe.

From beta, MSV drops only Sigils of Power, HoF only Wisdom, and ToES drops both. ToES dropping both makes sense to me, as later on in the expansion, you will get new raiders, and being able to skip MSV will be possible. Heck, it'll be possible as people get VP gear/crafted items.

Poor plate wearers. Unless they're holy paladins, they'll have a bit of a wait for Sha-touched weapons.
