Easy to Acquire Haste Gear

I was working on a post about haste and why we like it/love it/want more of it. Then I got the stupid idea to make a list of easily acquired gear with haste, to refer complaints about not being able to find haste gear to. To prove that those complaints are unfounded, the list became quite long and ended up better serving as a stand alone post.

So here is a list of regular ICC, Ruby Sanctum and ToC 25 gear that has haste on it. And if you’re all good, maybe you’ll eventually get a post about the goodness of haste itself.

Note that this isn’t a best in slot list in any shape or form. It’s just a reference for those who don’t have access to heroic level gear and who suffer from the whims of pugs, RNG and limited playtime.

Weapons
Lockjaw ~ Rotface 10 ~ 52 Haste ~ Probably your best bet on regular modes.
Quel’Delar, Lens of the Mind ~ Quel’Delar questline ~ 49 Haste ~ Perfect for puggers or those with a lot of money.
Misery’s End ~ Anub-arak 25 ~ 58 Haste ~ Pretty good for ToC gear, if you’re lucky enough to find a ToC 25 pug.
Frost Needle ~ Marrowgar, 10 ~ 54 Haste ~ Is a dps caster weapon, but if you’re desperate…

Shields
Bulwark of Smouldering Steel ~ Marrowgar 25 ~ 60 Haste ~ Yes please.
Lost Pavise of the Blue Flight ~ Sindragosa 10 ~ 53 Haste ~ If you’re not into 25 mans, this is your best bet.
Bastion of Purity ~ Faction Champions 25 ~ 50 Haste ~ If you want to do ToC 25.

Helms
Lightsworn Headpiece ~ Tier 10, badges ~ 80 Haste ~ Upgrade it if you can. If you’re badge deprived, the tier 9 helm is also hastiful.
Judgement Crown ~ Onyxia 25 ~ 87 Haste ~ Not a bad piece.
Ice-Reinforced Vrykul Helm ~ Gunship 10 ~ 88 Haste ~ It’s mail, but well itemized.
Helm/Headguard of Inner Warmth ~ 75 Emblems of Triumph ~ 66 Haste ~ Mail. If you have no other choice.

Neck
Blood Queen’s Crimson Choker ~ Random drop, Blood Wing 25 ~ 53 Haste ~ Best you’re going to get on normal mode.
Bone Sentinel’s Amulet ~ Marrowgar 25 ~ 52 Haste ~ Decent, but good luck convincing the priests and the druids.
Choker of Filthy Diamonds ~ Rotface 10 ~ 53 Haste ~ Good deal.
Soulcleave Pendant ~ Saurfang 10 ~ 43 Haste ~ Also a good deal.
Relentless Gladiator’s Pendant of Subjugation ~ PvP ~ 50 Haste ~ Decent Haste. Lacking on the other stats.
Wail of the Val’kyr ~ Val’kyr Twins 25 ~ 38 Haste ~ If you have no other choice.

Shoulders
Lightsworn Spaulders ~ Tier 10, badges ~ 63 Haste ~ Get them, upgrade if you can. Tier 9 also has haste if needed.
Pauldrons of the Cavalier ~ 45 Triumph badges ~ 67 Haste ~ Decent, but not as good at tier.
Horrific Flesh Epaulets ~ Festergut 25 ~ 64 Haste ~ Mail, but decent.
Shoulderguards of Crystalline Bone ~ Sindragosa 10 ~ 55 Haste ~ Mail, but ok.

Cloak

Frostbinder’s Shredded Cape ~ Dreamwalker 25 ~ 52 Haste ~ Another great cloak that everyone will fight you for.
Wrathful Gladiator’s Cloak of Subjugation ~ PvP ~ 60 Haste ~ It’s pvp, but if you’re desperate…
Abduction’s Cover ~ Halion 10 ~ 57 Haste ~ Good bet if you have access to 10 man Halion gear.
Heartsick Mender’s Cape ~ Blood Princes 10 ~ 45 Haste ~ Decent.
Flowing Sapphiron Drape ~ Onyxia 25 ~ 35 Haste ~ If you’re desperate… but you’re better off going with the hasteless badge cloak.

Chest
Rot-Resistant Breastplate ~ Rotface 25 ~100 Haste ~ Best you can get on normal.
Lightsworn Tunic ~ Tier 10, badges ~ 80 Haste ~ If you’re buying.
Breast/Chestplate of the Frozen Lake ~ Val’Kyr Twin 25 ~ 90 Haste ~ ToC 25 gear, but pretty good.
Mail of Crimson Coins ~ Blood Princes 25 ~ 84 Haste ~ Mail, but decent.

Coldwraith Bracers ~ Marrowgar 10 ~ 49 Haste ~ Mail, 10 man

Hands
Fallen Lord’s Handguards ~ Deathwhisper 25 ~ 64 Haste ~ Your best bet.
Gauntlets of Overexposure ~ 60 Frost Emblem ~ 64 Haste ~ Same as above, only purchasable.
Turalyon’s/Liadrin’s Gloves of Triumph ~ Tier 9 ~ 67 Haste (25 man version) ~ If you’re desperate
Unclean Surgical Gloves ~ Festergut 25 ~ 80 Haste ~ Mail.
Stormbringer Gloves ~ Dreamwalker 10 ~ 74 Haste ~ Mail, 10 man-friendly.

Waist
Belt of the Lonely Noble/Lich Killer’s Lanyard ~ ICC 25 drop/60 Frost badges ~ 64 Haste ~ I’m only linking to one, but they’re identical and easy to get.
Surrogate Belt ~ Halion 10 ~ 60 Haste ~ Not as accessible, but good for 10 man, if you can kill Halion.
Tightening Waistband ~ Blood Queen 10 ~ 71 Haste ~ 10-man-friendly
Split Shape Belt ~ Halion 25 ~ 86 Haste ~ Mail, if you can down Halion 25
Belt of the Blood Nova ~ ICC Random Drop ~ 72 Haste ~ Mail, BoE.
Deathspeaker Disciple’s Belt ~ Deathwhisper 10 ~ 74 Haste ~ Mail, 10 man-friendly

Legs
Lightning-Infused Leggings ~ Crafted LW ~ 100 Haste ~ Mail, but actually better than the plate crafted ones.

Feet
Foreshadow Steps ~ Halion 25 ~86 Haste ~ Awesome, if you have access to Halion 25 loot.
Protectors of Life ~ Crafted ~ 64 Haste ~ Not as exciting as the mail crafted boots.
Boots/Sabatons of the Courageous ~ Northrend Beasts 25 ~ 67 Haste ~ Yeah, there’s not much in terms of plate boots in ICC.
Earthsoul Boots ~ Crafted ~ 80 Haste ~ Mail, but better than the plate crafted boots.

Boots of Divided Being ~ Halion 10 ~ 55 Haste ~ Mail.
Boots/Sabatons of Tremoring Earth ~ Faction Champions 25 ~ 67 Haste ~ Mail, ToC gear.

Rings
Ashen Band of Endless Wisdom ~ ICC Reputation Award, Exalted ~
59 Haste ~ No Brainer! If you’re not exalted yet, get the lower ones and upgrade.
Ring of Phased Regeneration ~ Halion 25 ~ 56 Haste ~ If you have access to Halion 25…
Marrowgar’s Frigid Eye ~ Random Drop ICC 25 ~ 60 Haste ~ Quite good. Also BoE if you want to buy it.
Ring of Rapid Ascent ~ Gunship 25 ~ 52 Haste ~ Another good bet.
Cerise Coiled Ring ~ Blood Princes 10 ~ 35 Haste ~ 10 man friendly

Circle of the Darkmender ~ Jaraxxus 25 ~ 50 Haste ~ 25 man ToC

Trinkets and Librams :There aren’t any trinkets or librams that I’d recommend for haste. Stick with a trusty intellect trinket or Solace, keep your Renewal libram if you’re a holy light paladin or your pvp libram if you’re a Flash of Light paladin.

And now I never want to see Wowhead for the rest of my life.

    Thank you for this post! I’m trying to fill in some gear gaps on my healing set (it’s my offspec..) and I just don’t have the gear ‘memorized’ like I do with my main spec. I knew of a few things, and already have several of the top pieces you mentioned, but I’ve added some more to my ‘must get ASAP’ list. :)

    • Ophelie Says:

      It’s not a BiS list, so there are a couple of decent but hasteless pieces (such as the badge cloak) that aren’t listed so don’t take this for gospel! I just wanted a reference for all these guild applicants in ICC gear sporting 400 haste and complaining that they can’t find haste gear.

  2. Aloix Says:

    Oh, one thing though, pants. I believe I am using the crafted mail pants instead, because they have 100 haste vs 92 haste. Lightning-Infused Leggings.

    • Ophelie Says:

      I did accidentally overlook a couple of LW crafted pieces. I’ll edit them in when I get around to fixing some of the links. Thanks for pointing out that the legs are missing!

  3. Shiva Says:

    Wish I had found this post a month ago. You know with a little tweaking you can configure this post to be a “new to 80″. — Especially with all the crafted and pvp stuff on the list.

    • Ophelie Says:

      I’d have to make a few changes for that and add some ToC 10 gear, but it does gives me some ideas for future posts. Thanks!
