Nice guide, though I disagree with the off-hand choice. Personally, I used the JP shield, with reforging for some extra haste.Also, for a few other slots:Bracers - Grim Batol, last boss "Bracers of Umbral Mending" are our BiS pre-Heroic (and the Heroic version for pre-raid), but you can also find some BoE ones on your AH "Soulheart Bindings" and the BS "Ornate Pyrium Bracers" as standbys.Relic - Unfortunately, via quests you're stuck with greens here, but there are a few pre-Heroic options. Vortex Pinnacle drops "Captured Lightning" for a strong Int/Spi/Haste one with a socket, but personally I would recommend the new "Bloodthirsty Gladiator's Relic of Salvation" for a mere 700 honor points. The resilience is useless in PvE, but the stats are on par with the Heroic relics and is quite cheap. Also, there are some BoE drops and the Inscription relic available as well, but these were overpriced on our AH.Shoulders - Again, the new 85 PvP ones are strong but somewhat costly for Honor, so there are some other options. "Captain Hadan's Pauldrons" drop from Lost City, and you can reforge that Crit into Haste immediately. The easiest ones to obtain are the "Detective's Shoulderplates" from the "Villian Unmasked" quest (Twilight Highlands lead-in quest chain), and will last you awhile.Leggings - If you can get them, "Legguards of Noon" from Rajh in Halls of Origination are excellent (again, reforge the Crit into Haste or Mastery). Otherwise, the "Ornate Pyrium Legguards" are from Blacksmithing, or the new 85 PvP pants are weak with the Crit/Resil combo (reforge!) but give you 2 sockets as well.Trinkets - "Blood of Isiset" from HoO (Halls of Origination) is an Equip/Equip bonus for Mastery and a 1512 Spirit proc. "Tear of Blood" from Stonecore has 215 Int with an Equip 1290 Spirit proc. And "Rainsong" from Vortex Pinnacle is a BoE drop with 215 Spirit and an Equip 1290 Haste proc. There are also the new 85 PvP ones to fill a needed slot.
