Gearing up for heroicsEdit
While I wish I could let you know what the best gear is to have to get into heroics it is quite difficult to do so. Please use the links at the top of the page and determine what an upgrade is for you.
What I can suggest is keep running instances on regular mode with your reputation tabards on.
You want to be;
Exalted with the Guardians of Hyjal
Exalted with the Earthen ring
Revered with the Dragonmaw clan
Exalted with Therazane
Exalted with Ramkahen (For the mounts) Revered for just the enchant.
The Best pet video Yes, I linked it twice because I get asked this as many times per day as ores I collect!
Pet selection for regular instances, Heroics and raids are virtually the same. However, they change if you have a class that overwrites the buff your pet gives or if there is another hunter in the group or even multiple hunters.
Note, all ferocity pets if speced the same deal the same Damage per second (DPS)
