Before you go into kara do yourself a favour and make sure your gear is as good as possible. You dont need to spend a fortune on epic gems and top level enchants but the basics will be easy to sort. Three steps:1) Make sure your gear is worth taking to kara. Some quest blues are great, some are not. Sites like wow-loot.com are great for gear planning, get the best you can before you go raiding. Some items, like leatherworker epic crafted sets or engineering goggles, are unlikely to be bettered by kara gear - get these enchanted asap, you will most likely wear them a long time.2) Make sure you get your consortium rep up and get your FREE monthly bag of gems from nagrand... I cannot tell you how much gold this saves me with three alts all revered or higher. If you are JC or miner you will also get gems. Just green gems are enough to start with for pre-epic blue gear... i mean why wear anything with empty gem slots, its a waste of itemisation.3) A lot of enchants are cheap... i mean really cheap. Duel wielding Executioner on level 65 blues is silly and a waste of expensive materials. As you level or quest save your unwanted green items (dont ah or vendor them), get a friendly enchanter to DE them for you and voila... stacks of free enchanting mats. Something like Assault Gloves - 26ap on gloves (8 arcane dust) or Assault Bracers - 24ap on bracers (6 arcane dust) are well worth doing on pre kara gear, same with fortitude on boots - 12stam (12 arcane dust). The most expensive enchants save up for when you have better gear but these are easy upgades at low or no cost.
