So, I thought I'd start a thread of 'general advice' for people wanting help with their gear. Here's my 2c, feel free to add your own.

1. Accurate magelo for everyone to see. http://www.magelo.com

2. Do a search at magelo and view the profiles of better-geared Shamans in guilds slightly ahead of you in progress; find those guilds at http://www.lavanet.no/progress/

3. Visit http://raidloot.com or http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/adv_search.html (premium members only)and view the drops for the zones you'll be hitting. List what would be good upgrades for your gear and focus. I suggest avoiding 'active pursuit' of an item (significant dkp or effort) unless it's at least a 20% hp upgrade from what it replaces, a significant focus/clicky, or a good combination of hp and focus/clicky. Mind your resists and mod2s, too.

4. On another tab, List your current gear by slot, and what upgrades are worthwhile to pursue, with a column for each zone. Example:

Ding! You're now an educated consumer.

Notes:
3Q04, left family guild after exodus to WoW/EQ2; joined guild raiding HP/Emp and Tier 2 PoP.
2Q05, left above guild with server merge for Titans of Saryrn, raiding Uqua/Ikkinz, with app gearup runs through Time.
4Q05, ToS now hitting Anguish, Tacvi and DoN Dragons regularly.
4Q06, ToS essentially gone; joined Reminiscence, which raids twice a week, and is working on Anguish access.
2Q07, took a few months off, back now, guild doing Anguish, Rik/Kes/Yar, 2.0s

Another good site for loots w/o having to pay is:

http://www.raidloot.com/

It's mainly like it says Raid loot... But it goes back into OoW expansion.

Wow, I didn't reallize all those were still linked. Yeah, I nuked the profiles when the discussions that spawned them were purged. I can put them back I guess.

It goes back to VT, you have to scroll down to the bottom of the page and hit the link that is below the normal list.

Got a few profiles I'd like ya'll to look at and determine if the gear is really 1 groupable during the respective expansions. During this time I was pretty low level, only getting above lvl 60 during the LDoN period. I didn't raid much prior to then either, so I have no idea how difficult most of these mobs really were (talking mainly about PoP one, it has some Kunark dragons stuff on it). Also, can you look at the AA's on each one. I'm kinda lost now on just what was available during each period.

Enough talk, here's the groupable profiles from:

Removed for changes, see post below

Go go being bored at work on night shift! Nice that I only had to work 11 hours instead of the full 12 of the shift. And I got paid for all 12.

intersting stuff. what was your decisions based on for accessibilty. for instance the PoP shaman is wearing stuff off of raid luclin. Also the luclin shaman is wearing a rumblecrush BP, i always thought of him as a raid mob during luclin.

But i was in a raid guild during luclin and PoP and still had gear that equated your shamans

Ok, seeing that it's pretty hard to figure out just what was groupable and what isn't in such old content (and complete lack of interest in people 1 grouping stuff there now), I'm going to change my magelo's to be for the best gear from that expansion (with clickies too!!!). Once I get to OoW and beyond, I'll create two profiles, one for one groupable gear and the other for the best gear from that expansion.

Here's my first magelos with this new idea:

Scars of Velious Shaman - http://eq.magelo.com/profile/1387946
Shaddows of Luclin Shaman - http://eq.magelo.com/profile/1387950
Planes of Power Shaman - http://eq.magelo.com/profile/1388080
Legacy of Ykesha Shaman - http://eq.magelo.com/profile/1388064 (notice this didn't change, wonder why that is)
Lost Dungeons of Norrath Shaman - http://eq.magelo.com/profile/1388084 (go go augments!)


I'll start working on GoD tonight/tomorrow depending on my college coursework tonight (and of course night shift at work).

Hope you guys and gals like this, it's kind of fun looking back on just how far we've come!


By the way, anyone have some info on just what AA's were released with what expansion. Kind of hard to determine that now looking at the new AA UI that was made. Not quite sure where to look for this info. Alla's is a bust as far as I can tell (when it's up that is). Any help would be very much appreciated. So far, I'm just going by some info here and my recollection from PoP days.

I believe that page has it listed on the tables. I'm not really sure, since work blocks the tables for some reason, so I'm going off what I remember from the last time I looked at it while I was at home. :?

It has all the AA's listed and when the AA's was last updated, but not the breakdown on which expansion is what for ones spanning multiple expansions.

Example

Run Speed 5 GoD

Which really was

5 total ranks:
Run Speed 3 PoP
Run Speed 5 GoD

When you say gruopable.. groupable by raid geared folks ? Looking back at some of the items, I highly doubt my friends and I (small family type guild) could 1 group these items :P

Well... it doesn't mean L80s with 20AAs and bazaar gear. But "groupable" should mean that a group geared up via non-raid drops in the latest expansions should have the ability to handle it.

Obviously the tank is the key. My group-geared warrior progressed through TBS and now SoF. We're farming Crystallos now. It's definitely doable. My Magelo doesn't get up to the perfect magelos posted but you can get an idea of what's possible: http://eq.magelo.com/profile/1369544
