Great read, as always, great information...I do, however, have to contest your assertion that trinkets are the hardest pre-raid slot to fill, when everybody knows that, at this particular moment in time, it is those dang mither-flippin' WANDS! *tears hair out*Still, good stuff, all in all.

there should be an awesome archaeology wand to compensate.. let's hope we get one in a future patch :(

My rogue feels your ranged slot pain. There *is* an epic throwing weapon, but it's a very low drop from junkboxes.

Historically, wands haven't been that big of an issue. Also, having a slightly less-than great wand won't affect your DPS by that much, whereas the difference between one trinket and another can be well over 1000 dps. There's a reason Christian referenced the http://www.wowhead.com/item=47213/abyssal-rune , because it was ridiculously better than all but a handful of trinkets for all of wrath.True that in the this tier of raiding, they made thrown weapons as well as wands a real pain in the butt to get. I'm guessing they did that on purpose to make it a bit more interesting.Anyway, trinkets are to casters what weapons are to melee dps, and blizz has said in the past, they want to make trinkets one of those things that you have to grind and/or get lucky for. My guess is that in the next tier, there will be a wand or two that is relatively easy to get, but trinkets will still be annoying where you pray to the trinket gods that you get your trinket.

Agreed! Flippin wands!I don't understand why, as a lvl 525 enchanter, I can't make myself a nice and useful wand (maybe even epic...what else do enchanters get that's special? +80 intellect from my rings?). I used to be able to make wands back when I was level 5 (enchanting level 10). I never understood why they stopped adding new wands to our craft.
