    So, you just got your toon to 110 and you've stopped XP gain. Your item level is probably around 160 and you're about to go get your Heart of Azeroth and your first piece of Azerite gear... and then what?

    Since I've helped a bunch of people in-game who were unaware that BFA rares drop decent gear to get your twink started, I decided to put together a bunch of links in a Google Sheets document to help fresh 110s quickly get a set of gear that'll push them past ilvl 230.

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1PZaoBz4bJjkcozyG-AU6oEh8QchRpbSNIMQAtxGJF10/edit?usp=sharing

    The idea here is not to list BiS gear, at all - I cannot stress this enough. The idea is to give you a FAST and reliable way to get your power level up to twink entry levels by simply going around your faction's island and killing specific mobs. This process should take around an hour if you plan your route correctly.

    I've been wanting to get this done for a while, not just to help people with gearing but also because I was bugged by how Blizzard shafted the Horde with rares. I hope it helps your fresh 110's.

    Many thanks to the EU 110 twink community.

    Hey I like the idea, I'd suggest making the stats on each items easy to find in the spreadsheet so people can target what's good for their spec/build

    Cheers!

    Thanks for the feedback :)

    I have added a new tab with a list of Zandalar gear for clothies, that not only has links to the gear itself, but also has the values of secondary stats and procs/on-use/set bonuses. Let me know if that format is an improvement, and I'll put in the work to do the other classes/armor types. I did not add primary stat values because, well, they're all the same for the different options in a given slot, so I felt all it would do is clutter up the spreadsheet without giving any valuable information.

    Ultimately, I would like to have a tool that lets you select which gear you want and it plans out a route for you, displaying it on a map of Zandalar/Kul'Tiras. All in good time, I suppose.

    My 110 hunter, Iaernyth-wyrmrest accord (capital i) is a good example rare mob gearing.

    I advise new 110s to do plenty of research into what Azerite traits suit their class best, as even though I thought I did I still made grave mistakes with my Azerite quest path, and as a result I can't use my ilvl300 pieces to their full potential.

    For other Hunters, you want Mastery, and lots of it. Trade Winds is the trait you want to stack.

    WoWhead helps too, just filter by zone if you feel it necessary, for effecieincy. But simply using the database show what rares drop what items too. Database>items>armor/weapon>type..... everything that has a name as the drop source is a go.

    Nice! I'm keeping my hunter 110 so I'll do the same to hold me over until doing M Antorus runs. And if you know the pieces of Azerite gear you want you could always figure out the Horde equivalent (even if those Horde pieces don't have the stats you want) and faction change to do all the Horde quests. Once you switch back to Alliance they'll revert back to the equivalent Alliance pieces you want.

    I've finished creating the lists for both Zandalar and Kul'tiras, split by armor-type (cloth, leather, mail and plate).
    I was happy to see that there have been a bunch of people looking at the sheet since I initially posted it.

    Currently, I'm looking into the possibility of creating a slippy-map tool based on minimap dumps, like marlam.in's map browser, with a side panel where you can select the gear you're interested in from a list similar to the spreadsheet, and corresponding markers on the map to show you where to go. I don't think I can do routes, though, as they'd involve a lot of work.

    edit: There's also the possibility of creating coordinate lists for addons like TomTom, so people can just follow directions in-game.

    By the way, I mostly play Horde, so while testing the rares for myself I've come across some stuff on Alliance side, like phased rares, that I was unaware of until now. If you come across some such oddities, or have other feedback about the spreadsheet, feel free to reply on this thread.

    somewhere i read crustacean had been fixed to only drop his loot one time but ive farmed him over the last few days on different toons, nothing has changed. im guessing someone went by there expecting him to be a silver elite and he wasnt, thats due to the times hes a workd quest boss. after thar quest is over hes back to broken crab loot him everyday for a chance to proc a socket, leech etc

    Can confirm, Curstacean has dropped a ring for me about five or six times, including socket procs. I'm going to still try for one with a higher ilvl proc + socket because in the meantime the 233 crafted + socket are better in most cases.

    What I'm really curious about is the best source for an item or two with Leech. I've been mostly unsuccessful, except for one of Crustacean's ring procs (but no socket and only 217) getting any items with Leech so I'm only at the 9% that the weapon enchant gives.

    If it's always a random proc, like socket or upgrade, I'll just keep farming.

    The world drops (including Crustacean) won't proc a higher ilvl, but you can get a double proc such as leech + socket. Ilevel will remain the same however.

    So it's only quest rewards that can proc the higher ilvl, and dungeon drops? That's disappointing. At least, if I get a Leech + socket that might make it worth equipping depending on what it does to my overall leech.

    Hey can you confirm that the Azerite pieces will drop from rares @110? I was always under the impression that 110s could only get the quest Azerite gear.

    110/111s can get ilvl 280 azerite fear from rares and dungeons. Only the 295s are available from quests.

    Faction change question relevant to this guide - can you kill all the rares for loot again?

    Nope, just once.
    If you are going to faction change for quests, do the rares from your current factions island before you change (a horde 110 on alliance continent will find the mobs are 120 (they do still drop 110 loot if you have help killing the 120s)).
