I disagree completely with the idea that you need to spend so much time in normal dungeons. When I level a new dps alt, I find myself cracking 1k dps around 73. If you aren't then either a) your rotation depends on an ability only learned at 75 (Shield of Righteousness, FFB, Lava Burst, etc.) or b) you need to learn your class better. Gear is secondary to skill, and thankfully GS doesn't even enter into it for heroics (courtesy of the dungeon finder.) The only gear mark you actually need to clear is the minimum to queue for heroics in the first place.I think the best advice is to start preparing for 80 before you get there. Keep yourself consistently queued for normal dungeons while you quest. That should provide an adequate amount of gear through high-level blues and maybe even a triumph badge piece.Good guide, though. I just think this is the kind of stuff to look into *before* you hit 80. At 80, if you can't crack do 1300ish dps, you're doing it wrong, irrespective of your gear.
