I've upgraded a few epics to dungeon blues -- might I suggest you try a few instances?The quest greens always seem to be lacking a stat or two for someone in epics. But hey, they're greens.

This. My pala was in Kara purples and I've got some nice new shoulderpads, bracers, gloves and boots all from the first three dungeons. And I got some nice blue trinkets from Howling Fjord quest rewards. There are some nice items, you just need to know where to look.

This is what I have found as well. While the regular quest reward greens and blues have not been upgrades, the instance drops and instance quest rewards, even in UK, have been comparable to my Kara epics. After doing Nexus and the spider one, I've replaced a few pieces now. I'd expect regular quest rewards to start being options around 75 or so, maybe in Grizzly Hills and certainly beyond. Personally I think that's a good pacing of item replacement.Really in BC the stam change, and the lack of epic gear on the majority of the player base overall, is what made the upgrades comes so quickly. I much prefer the approach they have taken in Wrath.

@ Juneau - "There are some nice items, you just need to know where to look."This is why I was hoping to get a few guides on decent quest rewards to look out for for different specs. For example - quest x in the howling fjord has a great helmet for a feral druid.I'm sure we'll get these eventually, but sooner would be a lot more helpful than later....

Haste rating seems to be all the rage here (as Spell power, then healing/spell damage, was in BC). I have both green haste rating and ATK Power trinkets on both my Rogue and Paladin, upgrades of my Badge and ZA trinkets (I was a little disappointed about the ZA trinket though).Also, both share the same cooldown, so no +Haste and +ATK Power uses at the same time. Boo!
