Having 0 +hit really bite me in the ass last sunday when we went to ZA. The group was trying to complete the bear boss under the time limit. Taunting is part of what I had to do and he resisted my taunt twice. In short, we didn't get to take him down within the given time limit. We were late by 1 minute 20 secs I think (because we wiped and had to reset once). BUT the good thing about that is he dropped the boots that I badly needed. Jungle Stompers will enable me to re-gem and add +hit. The chess event has been bad for me, no king's defender and the battlescar boots so far (I have been to alot of chess event and I haven't seen it drop).
+hit will always be an issue when taking on the bear boss and I am planning to get more by replacing my range weapon with something with +hit on it. One option that I am looking at is the Veteran's Musket which requires having exalted rep with Honor Hold. The gun has +11 hit rating which would really help when tanking the bear boss. I think I will need 1 more SH run to get exalted and with some many raids going I need to set time out to run SH on off nights.
I was also fortunate to get into a kara group that took out Nightbane last night after our raid. He dropped Shield of Impenetrable Darkness which is really nice. Too bad the Panzar'Thar Breastplate didn't drop, because that would have been a bigger bigger upgrade for me. In any case, props to the guild especially for our GM Fio for taking the time out to gather a group just to kill Nightbane.
