Rogue Loot in Ruby Sanctum

At some point in the next few weeks we’ll be able to fight Halion in the new Ruby Sanctum raid beneath the Wyrmrest Temple.

I haven’t looked at any videos of the fight yet, so I can’t comment on it.  I have seen the loot table, though.  There are a couple of good rogue pieces that might fill in some gaps in your armor.

On 10-man, the loot is iLvL 258, which is slightly higher than ICC 10 normal loot.

There is a chest item called Gloaming Sark.  For those sporting their T10 chest for the set-bonus, this won’t be appealing.  Also, for those who have bought the Shadow Seeker’s Tunic with your Frost Emblems, you’ll likely pass on this.  But for others, this is a nice drop.

Also from 10-man normal is the neck slot Baltharus’ Gift.  Depending on your stat levels, this may be an upgrade over any neck item short of ICC hard modes.  However, with no hit rating it might be hard for ICC raiders to give up on their Wodin’s Lucky Necklace, as hit rating is hard to come by in T10+ level loot.

The 25-man normal raid has some very nice iLvL 271 items.  That’s higher iLvL than Frost Emblem purchases and ICC 25 normal mode loot, but just short of heroic ICC 25 drops.

I’ll be looking for the Umbrage Armbands.  Like many rogues out there, I am still stuck with the Bracers of Swift Death.  I haven’t been lucky enough to get the wrist items that drop from Sindragosa in ICC 10 or Saurfang in ICC 25.  This is a good third option, and almost certainly better than either of the others.

Another nice drop is the Signet of Twilight.  Finger slot items are also somewhat hard to come by.  There are a couple of comparable drops from ICC 25, so its good to have other options, or an upgrade if you’re already sitting on either Saurfang’s Cold-Forged Band or Rotface’s Seal of Many Mouths.

Lastly, of interest to combat rogues, is another armor penetration trinket – Sharpened Twilight Scale.  That’s a lot of ArPen.

Hopefully Halion has some items that you can use.  I know I’ll be looking out for a couple of nice drops.

    Looks like a couple of nice upgrades or at least stat fillers. Especially for hit starved Rogues. Drooooooool over Sharpened Twilight Scale. I wantz. 🙂

    Given that my rogue is still rocking a mix of T7, T8 and quest gear (seriously, he’s never used LFG!), I doubt I’m going to see Halion* anytime soon as a rogue. I wonder what’s in there for feral druids though…

    * amusingly, my guild leader is named Halion. We’re all looking forward to killing him.
