Loot Guide: Heroic Auchindoun

Posted on Updated on

In this guide, I will go over what each boss drops for you in Auchindoun on heroic difficulty, and I’ll try and highlight particular pieces to aim for based on their stats! Things change, however, and so do stat priorities. If things change massively, I will obviously edit this and future guides, but at the moment, the best secondary stats for each spec in Warlords is as follows:

  • Affliction: Mastery ~ Haste > Crit ~ Multistrike > Versatility
  • Demonology: Mastery > Haste > Multistrike ~ Crit > Versatility
  • Destruction: Crit = Mastery > Haste = Multistrike > Versatility

Also, it’s important to note that a lot of these pieces of gear drop from more than one boss! Weapons and trinkets appear to be tied to specific bosses, but other gear types can drop from many.

So with that in mind, let’s start with:

Vigilant Kaathar

Remember, all heroic dungeon drops are item level 630!

Kamui’s Crystalline Staff of Wizardry
2h Staff
+167 Intellect
+251 Stamina
+118 Versatility
+958 Spell Power
+101 Mastery

There’s better weapons out there, probably.  

Cord of Arcane Mystery
Waist
+126 Intellect
+189 Stamina
+72 Critical Strike
+91 Haste

Good in a pinch for any spec if you can’t get anything better!

Cord of Swirling Light
Waist
+126 Intellect
+189 Stamina
+84 Versatility
+84 Mastery

Every spec likes Mastery! Every spec doesn’t really care about Versatility.

Felflame Belt
Waist
+126 Intellect
+189 Stamina
+74 Critical Strike
+90 Multistrike

Possibly good for Destruction.

Frost-Touched Cord
Waist
+126 Intellect
+189 Stamina
+86 Critical Strike
+80 Mastery

Great for all specs! Destruction in particular.

Lightbinder Girdle
Waist
+126 Intellect
+189 Stamina
+89 Haste
+76 Multistrike

Tasty for Affliction in particular

Darkflame Loop
Ring
+94 Intellect
+141 Stamina
+60 Haste
+65 Mastery

Affliction and Demonology ring of choice. Nice for Destruction too!

Diamondglow Circle
Ring
+94 Intellect
+141 Stamina
+66 Critical Strike
+57 Haste

The, um, other ring of choice.

Golem’s Gleaming Eye
Ring
+94 Intellect
+141 Stamina
+69 Critical Strike
+52 Versatility

Crit makes it okay if you can’t get anything else.

Mark of Ice
Ring
+94 Intellect
+141 Stamina
+63 Critical Strike
+63 Multistrike

Destruction wants this. 

Signet of Shifting Magics
Ring
+94 Intellect
+141 Stamina
+49 Versatility
+71 Mastery

You probably can guess what I may say about Versatility by now, but the Mastery on this item makes it nice for any spec at a push.

Soulbinder Nyami

Soulcutter Mageblade
Main Hand Sword
+72 Intellect
+107 Stamina
+51 Critical Strike
+42 Haste
+956 Spell Power

If you’re going for a 1H/OH combination instead of just plumping for a staff, this is good for all specs, but Teron’gor later on drops something better. ’cause Mastery.

Alc’s Pendant of Fiery Dreams
Neck
+94 Intellect
+141 Stamina
+64 Mastery
+61 Multistrike

Every spec likes Mastery, and Affliction is liking Multistrike most at the moment. Item of choice for Affliction!

Demonbinder Cabochon
Neck
+94 Intellect
+141 Stamina
+72 Haste
+48 Versatility

Have a guess. You can do better.

Magister’s Chain
Neck
+94 Intellect
+141 Stamina
+63 Critical Strike
+63 Mastery

Demonology necklace of choice.

Necklace of Endless Shadow
Neck
+94 Intellect
+141 Stamina
+67 Critical Strike
+55 Versatility

Every stat is so much better than Versatility at the moment.

Felflame Robes
Chest
+167 Intellect
+251 Stamina
+106 Versatility
+115 Mastery

Mastery! Versatility. There’s better out there.

Frost-Touched Robes
Chest
+167 Intellect
+251 Stamina
+113 Critical Strike
+109 Versatility

No.

Lightbinder Robes
Chest
+167 Intellect
+251 Stamina
+95 Haste
+121 Mastery

Demonology? Affliction? Go for this one.

Robes of Arcane Mystery
Chest
+167 Intellect
+251 Stamina
+127 Critical Strike
+85 Haste

Probably best for Destruction. Sad there’s no Crit/Mastery robe.

Robes of Swirling Light
Chest
+167 Intellect
+251 Stamina
+103 Critical Strike
+116 Multistrike

Your second choice for all 3 specs.

Azzakel

Bracers of Arcane Mystery
Wrist
+94 Intellect
+141 Stamina
+63 Critical Strike
+63 Haste

Affliction all the way!

Bracers of Swirling Light
Wrist
+94 Intellect
+141 Stamina
+55 Versatility
+67 Multistrike

Nope.

Felflame Bracers
Wrist
+94 Intellect
+141 Stamina
+49 Haste
+71 Multistrike

Good as a second choice.

Frost-Touched Wristwraps
Wrist
+94 Intellect
+141 Stamina
+48 Critical Strike
+72 Mastery

Demonology and DEFINITELY Destruction want this one!

Lightbinder Wristwraps
Wrist
+94 Intellect
+141 Stamina
+57 Haste
+66 Versatility

Versatility sounds so good on paper, but every other secondary is just way better.

Felflame Grips
Hands
+126 Intellect
+189 Stamina
+84 Versatility
+84 Multistrike

Usual Vers advice.

Frost-Touched Gloves
Hands
+126 Intellect
+189 Stamina
+80 Versatility
+86 Mastery

Mastery is always good.

Gloves of Arcane Mystery
Hands
+126 Intellect
+189 Stamina
+70 Haste
+92 Mastery

Certainly best for Affliction and Demonology. Maybe Destruction too.

Gloves of Swirling Light
Hands
+126 Intellect
+189 Stamina
+76 Critical Strike
+89 Multistrike

Destruction is loving Crit, and Multistrike is always fun to see, let alone use.

Lightbinder Gloves
Hands
+126 Intellect
+189 Stamina
+96 Critical Strike
+64 Haste

Possibly a better choice than the above. Marginally.

Teron’gor

Dagger of the Sanguine Emeralds
Main Hand Dagger
+72 Intellect
+107 Stamina
+36 Haste
+956 Spell Power
+54 Mastery

I mentioned this weapon above. If you favour a 1h/offhand setup, then this is your weapon of choice for Demonology and Affliction.

Cloak of Arcane Mysteries
Back
+94 Intellect
+141 Stamina
+63 Haste
+63 Mastery

Haste and Mastery are both tasty stats for any spec, so if you don’t have the legendary cloak (believe it or not, it’s still best in slot at this point!) this is a good alternative.

Drape of Frozen Dreams
Back
+94 Intellect
+141 Stamina
+66 Critical Strike
+57 Mastery

Cloak of choice for Destruction, barring the legendary cloak.

Felbone Drape
Back
+94 Intellect
+141 Stamina
+72 Critical Strike
+48 Haste

Decent third choice if you haven’t got the legendary cloak, and the Haste/Mastery one doesn’t drop.

Forgeflame Greatcloak
Back
+94 Intellect
+141 Stamina
+65 Versatility
+60 Multistrike

You really want the Arcane Mysteries one. Not this one.

Felflame Legwraps
Legs
+167 Intellect
+251 Stamina
+87 Versatility
+126 Multistrike

Whopping chunk of Multistrike which is lovely. That’s nearly 2% worth!

Frost-Touched Legwraps
Legs
+167 Intellect
+251 Stamina
+120 Haste
+98 Versatility

A good chunk of Haste, but really any other stat would be preferable to Versatility sadly.

Leggings of Swirling Light
Legs
+167 Intellect
+251 Stamina
+106 Mastery
+115 Multistrike

Best choice for Affliction and Demonology, and a good second choice for Destruction because MASTERY.

Lightbinder Leggings
Legs
+167 Intellect
+251 Stamina
+118 Critical Strike
+101 Mastery

A brilliant piece for Destruction.

Trousers of Arcane Mystery
Legs
+167 Intellect
+251 Stamina
+111 Critical Strike
+111 Haste

No Mastery, but these are still a good drop for all 3 specs.

Felflame Sandals
Feet
+126 Intellect
+189 Stamina
+89 Critical Strike
+76 Haste

Good backup for any spec.

Frost-Touched Boots
Feet
+126 Intellect
+189 Stamina
+74 Haste
+90 Versatility

These frosty boots leave me feeling COLD. Again, Versatility is a bit of a waste at the moment.

Lightbinder Treads
Feet
+126 Intellect
+189 Stamina
+80 Haste
+86 Mastery

Best for Demonology and Affliction thus far.

Sandals of Arcane Mystery
Feet
+126 Intellect
+189 Stamina
+64 Critical Strike
+96 Mastery

Well hello Destruction!

Sandals of Swirling Light
Feet
+126 Intellect
+189 Stamina
+84 Versatility
+84 Multistrike

You know by now what I am going to say.
