First of all, I don't understand why people play this game as a single player.

Friends and guildies aren't on-call around the clock. I think he's just trying to be self-sufficient. Wink

Finally managed to get to Deadmines last night, hoping to grab smites hammer, but it didn't drop! I picked up https://classic.wowhead.com/item=2042/staff-of-westfall from the defias brotherhood chain following @Steerclear and others suggestions, which looks like it's going to last me a while!

Cheers dudes!

BTW, a spirit set in your bags completely negates any need for food. You'll use bandages and save so much time leveling it's insane. Grab an addon like ItemRack and bind your spirit and normal sets to it. My one-two punch is:

- Kill mob(s)
- Swap to spirit set
- Loot
- Skin (if applicable)
- Swap back to battle set

If I pull multiples, I burn em best I can. If I survive, I do the same thing but throw in a bandage. I've not carried food (aside from "I leveled cooking" buff food at all from 1-53.

Yeh I see way more warriors reppin' staves which is a solid choice. Most popular being the Wailing Caverns reward staff for horde. Thing is solid.

Yep. Warriors have gotten wise over the years. Items like https://classic.wowhead.com/item=13372/slavedrivers-cane and https://classic.wowhead.com/item=9477/the-chiefs-enforcer use to go to waste. There are A LOT of staves that are itemized really well for warriors. If you are in need of a green, check the AH. So many staves that are itemized for warriors, or even agility heavy staves for hunters just dont get sold and you can usually snag a really good 2hander for really cheap.

YES! A good spirit is cheaper AND more valuable than a good DPS set. Invest in heavy spirit gear which will decrease your time between pulls. This usually nets you more efficiency than stacking a good DPS set and decreasing your combat time. A warrior will often spend more time out of combat than in combat without a good spirit set.

I had never thought about collecting a spirit set as a warrior. I'll do this when I get around to leveling mine.

Yep, give it a try. Find a nice gear swap addon that allows you to quickly swap gear sets and youre good to go.

I never bought a piece of spirit gear, as it's completely unnecessary to do so. Quest rewards and owl/whale drops will be fine, not to mention copious amounts of dungeon stuff. https://classic.wowhead.com/item=6318/odos-ley-staff was useless to my group because everyone had the https://classic.wowhead.com/item=6505/crescent-staff (you can use this staff as well, and many do, but I elected to get the Wingblade for tanking). I didn't replace it for my spirit set until I picked up https://classic.wowhead.com/item=10826/staff-of-lore from Tanaris (easy quest).

Leveling, I grouped with maybe 2-3 druids for over 50 levels, and none of them wanted the healer druid gear. So I just soaked it up. I'm 53, still holding Spirit gear, and am getting about 200 health / tick with roughly 175 spirit. That plus any bandage over Mageweave and you're back to full health in 10 seconds.

For the record, I wouldn't have stuck with it as long without ItemRack. Making and updating a /equip macro became tedious.
